An oasis of calm for the lovers of unspoiled nature. On the foothills of the mountain over olive groves, just 2,5 km from Acharavi my grand grandpa's 200-year-old stone house with 3 terraces shaded by mulberry, lemon, almond, plum trees, pomegranate & tzitzifia. The main entrance leads to the kitchen, bathroom & upstairs room but you enter the downstairs room through apart outside door.
For your nicest sunsets & private outdoor life!

*****IMPORTANT than ever: We sanitize thoroughly!

The space
*****IMPORTANT: WE COMMIT OURSELVES TO THE NEW SAFE-CLEANING PROTOCOL
We totally clean and use disinfectants approved by the WHO, Greek gov and Airbnb protocol!
- During cleaning we air the whole house for hours, disinfect all surfaces with utmost care, clean everything radically
- Bed linen are washed in 60+ C and ironed

The house
We renovated this 200 year old stone house with respect to its original layout and style. In the three amphitheatric terraces we preserved the big unshaped rocks as the natural parts of the characteristic wild landscape of the mount Pantocrator. We are also very proud of the large variety of trees in our property: lemon, pomegranate, mulberry, almond, laurel, two plum trees (white and blues fruits) & the local type of tzitzifia tree, the olive and Judas tree, those last in our yard behind! Please feel free to pick some fruits from the trees if ready during your stay! All planned by my beloved father who emigrated to Athens in the 50ies seeking a better life yet, constantly coming back during spring time all his retired times up to his 93 year!

The kitchen and the so-called 'palace' room were the original living quarters. 'In the 'palace' people would rest and sleep. The separate downstairs room, the coolest space, was used for food storage (e.g., olives, olive oil) or dry food for the horses. We have put soundproofing material between the new cypress-floor of the 'palace' and the old wood beams ceiling in the downstairs room. But, please consider that walking in the 'palace' late in the night may be less soundproof for a sensitive ear downstairs.

The property is for those seeking tranquillity, privacy, the sounds of nature and outdoor life. There is ample space for outdoor life on the multi-terraced grounds with beautiful panoramic views of the sea, surrounding olive groves and mountainside.

Away from the touristic bustle, yet close to the seaside and all amenities. Shops, restaurants, night-life just 10 min away by car.

Guest access
- For up to 4 guests accommodation is arranged in the main house . The guest house sleeps two extra guests.
-WATER! You DO NOT have to buy water!! The running water in our village--coming from the mountain's springs --is tasty, light and clean! (Not valid for Acharavi)

Other things to note
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND
- There is no internet connection: ideal for offline detox ;)
- The 70 cm wide walls from stones make the place naturally cool, especially the kitchen & downstairs room. And, we love maintaining it authentic and eco-friendly: no air condition and no swimming pool in the property.
- Drink from the running natural springs water in this village! Do not bother adding to your shopping lists big plastic water bottles!

Location

Stroggili, Greece

The house is located on the higher point in a quiet rural village surrounded by olive groves, served by a small exciting local road with hardly any traffic just 2,5 km away of Acharavi on the foothills of the mountain. A number of picturesque neighbourhoods are within easy walking distance. Apart from a single laid-back tavern with a magnificent sunset view (500m from the house) the area is virgin territory.
However, in Acharavi, Roda and Kassiopi you will find lot of fun and amuzing situations. Beaches and bars with free swimming pools ideal for families with kids, alive taverns full with locals and tourists.
For the more alternative types I would suggest Almyros beach still untouristic without hired ubrellas (you can always borrow the house beach-ubrella if free).

Unique places to visit and eat in the mountain villages, surprising walks or less known local attractions we provide you as tips by arrival.
