The 2 bedroom house with large balcony is overlooking the Cretan countryside and White Mountains. Entering the house through the main door over the large covered veranda leads you into the spacious living area with open plan kitchen. The current owners beautifully renovated the house with a lot of love and passion using natural wood creating a warm and natural style. The house is heated with a big wood burning stove that can be connected to a central heating pipe system.
The country style kitchen is equipped with a fridge, traditional cooker, big sink, electric oven-cooker and dishwasher.
A beautifully shaped wooden door leads to a hallway with access to the bathroom and two bedrooms.
The bathroom is tiled with hexagonal colorful tiles and the sink sits on a handmade unique wooden shelf. Around the window the owners built a natural wooden frame perfectly fitting the style of the whole house.
The first double bedroom with large wardrobe is again beautifully renovated using natural wood. The second bedroom has a handmade wooden loft bed with integrated desk that makes a perfect kids room.
From the living room as well as from the second bedrooms you can enter the spacious gardens.
The place is successfully run as a natural escape farm for kids and families with lots of play areas, shaded sitting areas and animals with a growing number of repeat happy customers.
If you are an animal lover and would like to continue the business with animals, the owner will sell the property including 2 sheep, a turkey mother with 4 babies, 6 chicken, 4 ducks and a few guinea pigs. If you prefer to buy the property without animals, the owners will find a new home for the animals.
The play areas are all handmade and invite kids to discover nature. You can find swings, slides, a tricycle track, shaded craft areas, a tunnel, trampoline and much more.
You have fantastic countryside views over the valley area of Stilos, Neo Chorio and Armenoi. The land also has over 60 olive trees and many fruit trees: fig, orange, lemon, mulberry, walnut as well as very young orange and pomegranate trees.
The area is very flat and perfect for walking through the olive groves or along the river or to take a bike and discover the Cretan surroundings.
The boat house can accommodate 2 people and could be rented out through Airbnb. There is also a separate Studio perfect to rent or to accommodate guests.
The farm is in a quiet location but only a 10 mins drive to the sandy beaches of Kalyves with its supermarket tavernas, cafes, shops, bank etc.
You can walk to the Cretan village of Armenoi in only 10 minutes with tavernas, cafes, mini market and beautiful river.

Is 4km inland from Kalyves. It benefits from being close to Kalyves when you need it and its amenities, but a world away in a peaceful, old Cretan village. There is a large tree in the road outside the traditional kafenion, where you can sit and watch the world go by. An excellent butcher’s shop, a chemist and a couple of cafes and tavernas and mini – market. It is impressive with its architecture and history. There are some fine walks through the fertile agricultural land and alongside the streams or up the hill from the square to the old village and some beautifully restored houses.
