For sale a complex of traditional houses of authentic Cretan architecture that was constructed 400 years ago, carefully restored to detail while retaining some of the original features, thus transferring the sense of that era. It is located in a quiet location in Gavalohori, Apokoronas, Chania, not far from the traditional village square. The complex consists of three traditional stone houses, which are completely autonomous from one another, in an olive grove of 3,000sqm.
The first house is built on the highest level of the olive grove and has unobstructed views of the White Mountains and above the village.
The entrance leads directly to the internal paved courtyard. Cisterns, carved in stone, were once used to wash and water the animals, collecting rain water, give an idea of the life of the past.
From the courtyard we enter an antechamber and then into the large oven room with a high internal chimney, which has now been transformed into a fully equipped kitchen with an oven, fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and all necessary cooking utensils and cutlery. At the same level there is also a toilet with shower.
Through the entrance hall we head to the large living / dining room with fireplace with Cretan sofa / bed and large stone countertop. A staircase made of cypress wood trunks leads us to the upper floor, where there are two double beds and a bathroom with shower.
The second house, originally an olive mill, today has been transformed into a separate house. The view from its courtyard is magnificent over the village and towards the White Mountains, covered by snow until May. Around the house there are olive groves and beds with flowery flowers.
Large stone steps lead us from the olive grove to the private courtyard of this house where we can spend beautiful moments of relaxation. From here, we enter the olive mill, a typical "arched building" in which the dining room with the living room is formed. There is also an old fireplace and a double bed in this room. On the ground floor there is also a fully equipped kitchen and a toilet with shower.
A staircase of cypress wood leads us to the upper floor where there are two large bedrooms with double beds and one smaller one with a single bed. Each bedroom has a private bathroom with shower. A private terrace offers even more spectacular views than the courtyard.
The third house was originally the home stables. Today it is a comfortable maisonette with a room and a toilet with shower on each level. The entrance, from the olive grove, leads to the living room, dining room and kitchen which is fully equipped. In this area there is a wooden bench that can also serve as a single bed. The stone steps lead us to the upper floor where there is a traditional bed near the old fireplace.
