Just 7' from Paleochora and the sea. Remote but close to everything. Quiet but 5' from super markets, doctors, nightlife. One of the well kept secrets of Crete. The Tuscany of Greece & next to the sea...
A wonderful house with the best view of Anidri village towards the sea and Paleochora bay. The house was named Caminada which was its name during (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). The reason being, the amazingly privileged location of the house and the land around it (Caminada means "chimney" in Greek), on the top of the hill of the village of Anidri. In the old days, the original owner, a renown musician of the area, would play his lyra for the whole village almost every night.
The house dates back to the beginning of the 1900's and we have made an effort to keep most of its initial features, building in all the necessary amenities for our guests, friends and family.
The apartment is 95 square meters, with two main bedrooms. In the living room opposite the big window with the stunning view over two gorges, there is a sofa bed that can accommodate one more person. There is a fully equipped kitchen plus air-conditioning in both bedrooms. There is a shadowed part of the beautiful terrace and a big part of it in the open air, so that you can enjoy the stars at night - trust me, that alone is an experience.
The apartment accommodates 2 to 5 people - plus a baby :)
Just 5 klm NE of Paleochora, it remains close enough to all the amenities of a small city (including super markets, a doctor, car and motor rentals, cafes, restaurants), but still far enough from it, for those who love some action but want to have absolute peace at the same time.
The house is built exactly next to a great trekking path - in between Anidri and Azogyres - which makes it ideal for couples and families with children that would like to to have a stroll or a trek on these great mountains, and who love nature - but still want to be sure they won't have to drive for hours for everything they might need. Paleochora literally has everything, and Caminada has peace.
Interaction with guests
Margaret - the house keeper - will answer every question you might have and you can text both us and her for anything you might need! Please don't hesitate!
The house has been treated with respect during its renovation. Many of the objects and pieces of furniture in it are antiques. We expect that our guests show the same kind of respect to it. This is not a hotel nor would we want to make it look as such. Your concern for the maintenance of Caminada's character is very much appreciated in advance :)

We are Alexandra and Benoit, both film producers living both in Belgium and Greece. We are lucky enough to be able to "take our work with us" wherever we are, so we can enjoy our second passion, apart from film making, which is traveling. We discovered Crete during one of our travels in 2011, found this house in a bad shape and have been renovating it since. It is the best spot in Crete in our opinion, as it combines the mountain, the sea, a small city close by that you can find everything, but still remaining totally off the noise even in the middle of August. It is our paradise and from the very beginning we'd like to see ourselves as ambassadors of it. Paradise Ambassadors that is. How cool is that? :)
