Request to Book

This traditionally Cretan family home sleeps up to 10 and is set in a quiet village close to wonderful beaches, ancient monuments and stunning mountains. Large, spacious and tastefully decorated while retaining its authentic Greek character, it’s ideal for a large family or family traveling with friends. Kids can enjoy the swings, gardens and plucking fresh fruit off branches. We love the simple and cozy feel, dark corners and high ceilings. The kitchen is truly a place where you can gather and enjoy each others company after a day of exploration - open to a comfy seating area with a wood burning fireplace and large dining table, sip wine and share stories of the day while preparing the family meal. Mostly, we love the location - the village of Vori has been granted historical protected status yet is not swamped with tourists, making it the perfect base from which to explore the gems of southern and central Crete.

The house "Patriko" was built by my grandfather in 1914. Its architecture is tradional cretan, and it is fully restorated recently. The house has 3 big, airy bedrooms, a very comfy living-room and a kitchen equipped with cutlery for 12 people and many electric devices. There are bathrooms in each storey, plus a shower in the garden. The garden is secluded, safe for children and there are swings and other toys. All stairs have safety doors. The house is a perfect place for families, as you can relax and feel at home in your holidays! Beaches and other interesting places are in 10-30 minutes' drive.

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.
