Are you an Eco tourist? Are you a History lover? Are you an easy family with kids? Do you like desolated beaches so close to my house but far from civilization? This is the place to stay! Everyday and a totally different story!
The history of this house comes back to 19th century were my grandmas' parents have built this house by themselves, getting stone by stone from the opposite mountain of Othos thru the river crossings and up to the 350 meters altitude of this ancient village.
My house is fully renovated getting all new furniture including the traditional Soufa bed our ancestors were using for centuries. The kitchen and the bathroom were built again in order to include all the amenities for an easy vacation in the most Historic Village in Greece.
Full house and terrace, with a brand new wooden Soufa (2 level beds) getting the sensation of old ways in Greece.
The house also has a very beautiful balcony where you can relax and have your coffee during the afternoons or early in the morning.
Interaction with guests
I will provide you with a great guide to Karpathos, having all the places and things to do. You can ask whatever you want from the phone I will give you. I will reply instantly 24/7, giving you the help you need, as we will not be present during your stay. However we will provide to you a tablet with 4g internet connection for your everyday needs. No WiFi connection to other phones or tablets is available, due to technical problems in the traditional settlement.
