  • An old stone sink has been converted to an outside shower and the tiny garden pond provides fresh drinking water for the current owners’ animals and local birds.

  • A private sunbathing terrace to the side of the house is also home to a mature bougainvillea and a very practical storage shed.

  • The courtyard is walled with a pedestrian entrance secured by double wooden gates and, if you have ever desired a lemon tree, this is the home of what could be the most prolific fruiting tree in Crete.
