Situated in the peaceful village of Mavrikiano, just a 5-minute walk from the centre of Elounda, this traditionally built house combine rustic features with luxurious features.
All the furniture are copies of originals found in the Historical Museum of Heraklion, Crete, but the lamps and fittings are original. Tiles used are hand made, dated c 1920, taken from old demolished houses and the marble sink was found in a Turkish Hammam. The taps are copies of those of the 1920's. The reddish plaster on the walls is made of ground tiles, the same material that was used in the monasteries of the period 14th - 16th century. There is evidence handed down through the generations that there was a church on this site many years ago.
