A place to escape and relax! Located on the mountains on the North East coast line between the famous village Mochlos and beautiful Sitia, the eastern city of Crete.
Set in the middle of the wild nature and olive groves, on a mountain at 400 m' hight in front of the sea with a breathtaking panoramic amazing view of the sea and dramatic cliffs of the North East cost of stunning Crete Island. Staying in Spitiana is an outdoor adventure you will never forget!!
Please note it is a high location and can be windy sometime as it is in Crete. We have an amazing backyard protected from the wind with a back entrance. It can get colder and fresh than in the city or down at the beach so you might need some warm clothing for the evenings:)
We have plenty of cozy blankets and shawls that you are welcome to use if needed!
Please note, A 4x4 car hire is essential in order to fully enjoy the area, to access the house and especially to drive down to the beach . We will gladly help you with a good car hire company we work with located in the Heraklion Airport area.
We built this place by ourselves with much love, to create our own dream vacation house.
Offering the comforts of a cozy 30 square meter home with emphasis on simplicity and a secluded experience in the middle of wild Cretan nature within 10 minutes drive to the traditional picturesque village Chamezi and 25 minutes drive to the town Sitia, the eastern city of Crete.
Again, A 4x4 car hire is essential in order to fully enjoy the area, to access the house and especially to drive down to the beach . We will gladly help you with a good car hire company we work with located in the Heraklion Airport area. Spitiana is about 1 hour and 40 minutes drive from Heraklion airport. During the summer it is also possible to get direct flights to Sitia from some destinations.
Our home is offering a special experience of getting closer to nature using an ecological solar system for electricity and a generator for the washing machine and to back-up only when needed the special system of batteries supplies electricity for light in the evening during the winter. Gas heater for hot water and fire place.
The interior is simple yet practical and sweet (we love it so much!!) and is equipped with a fitted kitchen with fridge-freezer; shower room and washbasin, wc, 2 bedrooms, 1 with cozy double bed, 1 with two single small beds, dining and living area with comfy sofas which can be used as another bed, cd player, outdoor washing machine and a second outdoor kitchen. But perhaps the 'cherry on the cake' is the outdoor huge 120 meter pergola you can sit on the amok enjoy the most amazing sunset you have ever seen with a glass of wine in your hand!! Laying out in the warm night as you gaze at the stars and moon. And the amazing backyard protected from the wind with a back entrance.
Spitiana is perfectly suited for singles, couples and even a small family or a group of friends - and provides the ideal setting for romantic or solitary retreat. The surrounding scenery is stunning, and there are plenty of nature trails and treks to be explored
A 30 minute walk down the mountain track will lead to the nearby beach. It will take longer to climb back up:)
The best and easier way to drive to the beach is via the next village ( Exo Muliana) and drive down the easy way or take a trip to explore for more stunning beaches around.
Driving back to the main road and heading back West to the next village Exo Muliana, you will find the trek to the Richti Gorge you can walk down the gorge to the 15 m' waterfall and continue down to the beach.
For very experienced 4x4 driver ONLY!!!
The other way down to the beach is by a 4x4 car 10 minutes drive ONLY if you are a very experienced 4x4 driver!!!.
Further afield, there is much to explore! Mochlos, Agios Nikolaus, Elunda, Plaka, Spinalonga Island, Paleo Kastro, Vai, Kato Zaxros and many more wonderful location and breathtaking secluded beaches all around!! In Sitia city which has retained much of its rustic charm, you will find sandy beaches, lots of cafes, Taverns, restaurants, supermarkets, local market, bars, banks, small stylish shops and all city amenities.
Life is slow here, and not to be rushed as they say here Siga Siga! In Chamezi village our close traditional picturesque village, you will find a great Tavern and even a small minimarket with great homemade cookies.
