Perfecte locatie met zeer fraai uitzicht

  • 5 of 5

Met recht een zeer fraai gerenoveerde olijfmolen op een toplocatie en inderdaad veel privacy. Geweldig uitzicht over een rustig dal en begroeide heuvels. Af en toe het rustgevende geluid van een voorbijkomende geitenkudde. Alles is aanwezig om hier een ontspannen vakantie door te brengen. Wij komen graag nog eens terug!

Heerlijk huis

  • 4 of 5

De eigenaren hebben duidelijk smaak want het huis is een feest om te verblijven. Het uitzicht vanaf het terras over de omgeving met olijfbomen is rustgevend en inspirerend. We zouden het huis 5 sterren hebben gegeven als er een afwasmachine en een wasmachine hadden gestaan. In de omgeving prima tavernes waar je heerlijk kunt eten. We vonden het wel jammer dat aan de zuidkant van Kreta vaak harde wind stond wat een verblijf op het strand niet altijd aangenaam maakte.

Prachtig gebouwd huis met bijzonder fraai uitzicht

  • 5 of 5

Wat een prachtig gebouwd huis met een zeer fraai uitzicht over de heuvels met olijfgaarden. Een heerlijk zwembad erbij, en van alle gemakken voorzien. Zalig eten in de taverne om de hoek met zeer sympathieke eigenaars. We hebben veel gezien van de omgeving maar met plezier keerden op het heetst van de dag weer terug voor de siësta op het grote terras. We bevelen het huis aan iedereen aan, het is werkelijk een fantastische plek met alle gemakken !

Endroit paradisiaque.

  • 5 of 5

Très belle restauration du vieux moulin à huile du village.

On sent tout de suite les propriétaires y ont mis beaucoup de coeur.

L'endroit est très privatif.

Très jolie terrasse bien ensoleillée agrémentée d'une petite piscine.

La vue depuis la terrasse est de toute beauté.

La maison est située dans un petit village qui a conservé toute son authenticité.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet endroit.

Particularly attractive house in authentic Greek style with pool in South Crete, with commanding views over the valley of Messara. In the south of Crete, near the beaches of Komos and Kalamaki, lies the quiet village Lagolio. On the outskirts of this village stands on the slope our spacious villa with pool and ADSL connection.

This traditional Greek house was built about 250 years ago. The last hundred years until 1960, the building was used as an olive mill. In 2007 the house was almost completely rebuilt, with traditional Greek style and ambiance were preserved.

The house has accommodation for four people. The kitchen is fully equipped and the (sleeping) comfort is much attention. If you do not want to be in the 'middle of nowhere', but want to enjoy the peace, space and privacy, you can not imagine a more beautiful place.

The village of Lagolio is still pure and unspoilt. The house is situated on the edge of the village high above the valley, with a splashing mountain stream in the spring. There are wonderful terraces on three sides of the house. You will always find a lovely place to have breakfast in the morning sun, or to relax by the pool.

You can enjoy a magnificent view of the valley and the hills around, and further away the tops of the Psiloritis, the excavations of Festos and Gortys and the Mediterranean Sea. Regularly some buzzards float above the valley, breathtakingly beautiful! Lagolio is a perfect base for beautiful walks to the coast, to the gorges of Rouvas (!!), Martsalo and Agio Farango, or to the Psiloritis.
