The space

Escape the hustle and bustle of the touristic areas and discover the true colors of the Cretan countryside. This is a traditional cheese storage facility built in 1917 (was used by local shepherds to store cheese) that was recently renovated and immaculately decorated, with the personal touch of the owner, into a cozy country house. The house retains its original character with a traditional stone structure and wooden beamed ceilings. The interior has full wooden flooring and features 1 bedroom with a large double bed and 1 bathroom with shower, living room with large fireplace, dining area (separated from the living room by the original stone arch), kitchen, a 200sqm courtyard and a large parking area. The dining area is adjacent to the open plan kitchen, which is fully equipped with high tech appliances. The inviting courtyard enjoys fabulous unobstructed views of the sea and the countryside. The courtyard features a build in coal barbecue and full outdoor furniture.

Guest access

The house lies within a private estate with olive groves, mature fruit trees (oranges, tangerines) and its own chapel, while the water supply comes from the nearby Zou spring (excellent quality spring water). Enjoy endless walks in the 4 acre estate while picking fresh fruits right from the trees.

Very nice house in the middle of olive trees. It is an old house recently renovated so that it is very comfortable. Pictures are what you have and the terrace is amazing. It is 10 minutes driving from the center of sitia where you can find anything you would need. I would definitely recommend this place

We really enjoyed our stay in the Cheese Hat. This is a very calm and quiet place away from the hustle and bustle. Sitia Beach is 5 km away. The house is located on the slope of the mountain. At the end of August, the wind was always blowing, and even in the heat of the house and on the terrace it was cool. For all 2 weeks, there has never been an air conditioner.Pantelis is always in touch and ready to help. Sifis is the owner of the house. Very beautiful and hospitable host.

The cheese hut is definitely more than a hut, it's very well-kept and gave us a very private atmosphere. The house is outside Setia but not too far away, so that it was for us the good balance between a calm place and the possiblity to be very quickly in town or on the way to other destinations. The landlord was caring and it was a pleasure to meet him. All in all we spend some very good days in his "hut".

The house is lovely and spacious, with fine furniture and supplies. Everything you would ever need is provided, and the owner has always been available for any necessities. The house is perfect for a romantic holiday in the real greek countryside.

We had such a wonderful time! What a beautiful place to serve as home base for our Cretan adventure. The owner showed such hospitality--even helping us get in touch with long-lost family in Crete, helping to translate as we searched for old records in town, and being available at all hours if we had any questions/problems. We cannot wait to return! We have such fond memories of our time at your lovely property. Thank you!
