Overview

About the property

An oasis of calm in an unspoiled and wild natural environment by the sea

Away from tourism on the West coast of Crete stands the private holiday home 'Aspro Peristeri', built in a nature-loving and Scandinavian simple way. 'Aspro Peristeri' has 2 spacious bedrooms - one with a kingsize double bed and a second big bed and the other with 2 single beds which can be alos converted into a double bed if necessary - each with separate bathrooms with shower and toilet. In addition, both rooms have separate entrances to the respective terraces that surround the house all around.

As you enter the house the kitchen, the dinning area and the living area, harmoniously coexist in an open plan arrangement. The large double glass doors draw you to the magnificent views of the beautiful blue sea and the endless horizon, right in front of your eyes. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove and oven, kettle and refrigerator. A dining table can accommodate 6 people. The self-made sofa and an extra bed can be used to create extra sleeping possibilities for 2 people. A wood burning stove provides cosy warmth on cooler days.

Magic in Paradise!

Stunning view, peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

We never tired of the view from the house and terraces, including the sun setting into the sea on the horizon. There is an amazing tiny chapel, built into the hillside, three minutes walk from the house down to the sea, which we didn't even know about until we arrived. The rock pools will keep children and adults amused for hours, and there is a pebble beach a very short drive away, though the wonderful beach at Elafonissi, 40 minutes drive away, is the place to go. The beaches of Falassarna are also within easy reach. The scenery is spectacular, wherever you go. The house has everything you need, though the nearest large supermarket is a 45-minute drive away at Kissamos, so make sure you get stocked up before arriving. We never visited the taverna, which is less than five minutes walk away, as we were happy to chill out on the terrace every night with our own food. The owner, Birgitta, who lives nearby, was friendly and helpful from the moment we made our first enquiry. She was a pleasure to deal with. We would definitely visit again, though probably not in the height of summer - we were there in mid-June and it was starting to get very hot - as the house doesn't have air-conditioning and there are no screens on the doors and windows, so leaving them open can let in flies and mosquitoes. We didn't get a single bite, as we closed all the doors and windows at night. A few more fans would be a good idea! There are two holiday villas, joined together, about 100 metres away, both of which have pools, so you might see and hear other holidaymakers, but when we were there they were not occupied. Overall, I would highly recommend this villa to anyone who wants to get away from it all.

Aspro Peristeri, een droomplek

  • 5 of 5

Wanneer je een idyllische plek zoekt in West Kreta, dan is dit de place to be!!! Een leuk huis, met alles wat je nodig hebt, Leuke terrassen rondom, privacy en een geweldig uitzicht op zee, de bergen en het groene achterland van olijfgaarden. Het is er rustig, dus je moet van de stilte houden. Een auto is een must, anders bereik je de plek niet, en voor de boodschappen, die niet om de hoek zijn. Maar vanaf hier kun je uitstapjes maken naar het binnenland, en de mooie zandstranden in de buurt. Vlakbij is wel een klein kiezelsteenstrandje wat ook de moeite waard is om naar toe te lopen qua entourage. Er is één taverne op loopafstand. Kortom, wij hebben genoten van deze mooie plek en het geweldig huis waarvan je vanuit je bed de zee kunt zien, en elke avond de zonsondergang. Wij willen elke vakantie weer iets nieuws ontdekken, maar dit is zeker een plek om weer eens terug te keren. En Birgitte is een leuke gastvrouw!!

Er horen wel een poes en een kater bij het huis, die je op z'n tijd eten en drinken moet geven. En ook al waren wij niet zulke kattenliefhebbers, je sluit ze uiteindelijk wel in je hart. Kortom, een prima plek om te relaxen en te genieten van de natuur rondom het huis, je voelt je als God in Kreta!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice ,immersed in the strong nature of the western coast ; silence ,the fragrances of the aromatic shrubberies,fantastic sunsets.There are 50 metres to the sea (but the coast is made of rocks) and a little rocky beach is after the little harbor,200 metres est.Good,genuine and at a good price food at Agria Fisi,100 metres from the house

Birgitta is very efficient and we'll return .

Owner's Response: the sea 50 m away just dawn from the house is rocky but I love to jumb into the sea from these rocks and you find some small l protected bays where you can have a good swim.

Ruhe, Sonne und nicht weit zum Traumstrand

  • 4 of 5

Uns (Meine Frau, mein Sohn und ich) hat es sehr gut gefallen.

Bei der Ankunft wurden wir herzlich begrüßt. Die Anfahrt durch die Berge war etwas abenteuerlich (schmale Straßen durch die Berge).

Das Haus hat eine wunderbare ruhige Lage und ist gepflegt. Die Möbel sind teilweise ins Alter gekommen.

Neben dem Haus auf der anderen Straßenseite ist noch eine weitere Villa. Das nächste Dorf (keine Einkaufsmöglichkeiten) ist nicht weit entfernt. Hier ist wirklich Ruhe angesagt!

Wir sind dann jeden Tag an den Traumstrand Elafonisi gefahren (ca. 20-25 min.). Das war Ideal für unseren 6 Jährigen Sohn (knietiefes klares Wasser).

Da es auf dem Weg nach Elafonisi nur einen "größeren" Mini Markt gibt (wo man fast alles bekommt) empfiehlt es sich schon auf der Fahrt vom Flughafen zum Haus sich mit ordentlich Lebensmitteln und was man sonst so braucht einzudecken.

Am Haus direkt ist es schwierig ins Meer zu gehen. Es gibt nicht weit davon einen Kiesstrand, der aber unserer Meinung nach nicht für Kinder geeignet ist.

Mountains rearing straight up from the sea, deep wooded gorges, ravines and valleys and yet more glorious mountains, standing proud and acting as a magnet to the eye and the imagination that's western Crete, or real Crete, as some would say. Western Crete rural life continues at the same slow pace as it has for centuries. The West is the greenest and most mountainous area of Crete. Our holiday home “Aspro Peristeri” is located in the area of Enniahoria. Mass tourism has not yet discovered the region. From here it is near to go to a lot of attractive spots like Falassarna, Elafonisos or the monastery of Hrissoskalitissa: Falassarna is best known for its fine sandy beach and crystal clear waters, while the beach of the islet of Elafonisos is reminiscent of a South Sea lagoon: white and in parts pink sand and a small island to which it is possible to wade through a shallow channel. Before reaching Elafonisos you pass the monastery of Hrissoskalitissa, built on a rock overlooking the sea.
