Holiday Rental House
Lily’s cottage features two cozy double bedrooms with very comfortable bedding and fine quality linens. In between the bedrooms is a stylish bathroom with a shower cabin. A sliding door in the hallway separates the sleeping quarters from the living room and kitchen area to ensure quiet and privacy. Mix and match furniture with ethnic tones and a modern fireplace give the spacious living room a homey feeling. The adjacent open plan kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary appliances and cookware. This north side of the house also offers unobstructed sea views of the Cretan sea and the Platanias plain. In the Southern part of the house, overlooking the olive grove, are the two bedrooms (one with a double bed and the other with an option of two singles or a double). Great consideration ...Lily’s cottage features two cozy double bedrooms with very comfortable bedding and fine quality linens. In between the bedrooms is a stylish bathroom with a shower cabin.

In the Southern part of the house, overlooking the olive grove, are the two bedrooms (one with a double bed and the other with an option of two singles or a double). Great consideration was given to the choise of mattresses and pillows, as we strongly believe that our primary service is to provide comfortable restful sleep. Between the two bedrooms is the bathroom that features a large shower and a washing machine. However, the great advantage of this amazing villa is really its external area. The 25m2 swimming pool invites the guests to relax on the sun beds and enjoy the warm Cretan sun while 'resting' their gaze on the endless blue horizon. The large Mediterranean trees (olives, apricots, figs, pomegranates) offer generously their shade to the barbeque and the outdoor seating areas, making it the perfect place to enjoy your breakfast. The vegetable garden (“perivoli”) from where visitors can harvest their salad vegetables is an extra bonus! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 193668More

Interaction with guests
My guests will feel unique as during their stay a huge consideration is given to their comfort. I'm available 24/7 for them and they can easily communicate with me via cell phone or the free applications whats up and viber. But if they prefer their privacy, of course they will have it as I live in the town and the closest house is about 300 meters away with no visibility at the cottage. My guests will also try some Greek traditional homemade dishes such as spanakopita (spinach pie) or mussaka, gemista (stuffed vegetables) etc.

About the neighbourhood
The nearest sandy beach is only 1 km away. The area is particularly suitable for guests interested in hiking. Just outside the property there is a path leading to “Maroulas”, a traditional village with Venetian color and about 5 km inland is the picturesque , green gorge of Mili with the abandoned village located by the torrent. At a distance of about 16 km lies the historic Arkadi monastery a monument of self-sacrifice in 1866 during the fight for liberation from the ottoman occupancy.
Getting around
A car is recommended but close to the cottage (about 15 min on foot) there is a bus stop with more than 10 daily services.
