Welcome to our newly built, stone residence located in the picturesque village Filippos in the old municipality of Apokoronas. If you are looking for an escape in a peaceful area in the heart of nature this is the perfect place to be. It is ideal for either a family or a group of friends who seek a tranquil and serine break from daily life.
Before you enter the house the first thing you will notice is the commodious porch with a big table ideal to have your morning coffee while enjoying the view.
Upon entering the house you will find a spacious traditionally decorated living room where you can watch a movie on a lazy night with your family or friends on a big flat TV screen while resting on the 2 big and comfortable sofas which both can turn into semi-double beds. The fully equipped kitchen is close to the living room separated by a traditional arch. The amenities of the kitchen offer the guests a sense of being at their own home as you can prepare full meals and breakfast using the electric stove, the coffee machine and the fridge to store the groceries which you can obtain from the village’s stores during a morning walk. In between the living room and the kitchen is a dining table for 6 ideal for a lunch or dinner.
The other part of the house consists of 2 spacious and sunny bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds. Between the 2 bedrooms there is the bathroom where you can enjoy a shower with hot water from the solar heater every time of the day. You can also wash your clothes in the washing machine in the bathroom.
Finally, on the back of the house there is a garden lounge under an old olive tree where the guests can have breakfast under the shade of the olive leaves or dinner under the moonlight relishing the view of Lefka Ori.
You can use the whole house as detailed above, and every point of the plot. The cellar has an independed entrance which is allways locked.
