( 11 Apartments ) * Swimming Pool  * Air Conditioning

two-bedroom apartments

Upon an enchanting hill in Istron-Kalo Chorio is created a complex of 11 apartments and studios. A beautiful large garden (20.000 qm in size) and olive groves surround these well established accommodations, which are attractively set on terraces and stand high above the road (ca. 100 m.) and the Istron Bay (ca. 200 m.). They are approx. 900 metres to the village and ca. 300 metres to the nearest beach. Because of the location the apartments offer a stunning panoramic view over the bay.

The dwellings nestle in the midst of a verdant hilly landscape, where olive groves and colourful plants reach all the way above the complex of the apartments as well as down to the sea.


In the garden of the dwellings there is a well equipped (with sun beds and sun umbrellas) swimming pool (200 m3 water), with a shallow end for children. It is set in large lawns on a separate raised terrace reached by a short flight of stone steps. It is an ideal spot to relax, unwind and enjoy the Cretan sun.

Each apartment and studio is simply but charmingly and tastefully furnished in the typical Cretan style. The "sofrades" (small, round wooden tables) and the flagstone floors with fixed beds are some of their characteristics. Each apartment has a private balcony with a wonderful view over the bay. All accommodations are recently renovated and are equipped with air conditioning, fully equipped kitchenette, bathroom with bath tub or shower.
