Style Notes

Modern living. The house is simple and modern, with no frills and high-quality furnishings. Fun owl-themed pictures hang in the children’s bedroom while the main living space is colorful with a scarlet table and denim-colored sofa. The spacious deck/balcony makes enjoying the sun easy. We love the family-friendly set up, the fantastic garden and the views of the sea.

Crete, Greek Islands

Ruins, rocky outcrops and rural charm

Off the southern coast of mainland Greece, beautiful Crete is the largest of the islands, packed with rural charm, archeological sites and fabulous mountains - a land where shepherds still tend their flocks wearing traditional dress. Blow the kids’ minds at the enormous Samariá Gorge, tantalize them with tales of ancient civilization, and check out the cave where Zeus was said to have been born.
