Reduced price - previously on offer at 375,000 Euros. Spacious renovated 2 bedroom farmhouse of 70sqm plus one bedroom studio. All on 10,000 sqm land plot in Neo Chorio. Currently operating as an ethical family run children’s farm with on-site accommodation, it is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty overlooking the White Mountains. There are paddocks, parking areas, seating areas, wood sheds and a workshop. It is approx 7 minutes’ drive from the sea.

This spacious farmhouse and its associated buildings, offers a great opportunity for a couple or family to own their own extensive land and home with potential future income in this beautiful sought after part of Crete.

This property is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Adventuring through the green valley of avocado, orange and olive groves is an experience to be savoured! The luscious orchards lead you to the River Kiliaris; a very important wetland for birds, turtles, amphibians, eels and crabs. You can follow the cool river through the rich vegetation to the vast and beautiful beaches of Kalyves town. The local villages have many tavernas. The beautiful village of Armeni is only a short walk away and Chania City is only 30 mins drive away.

Words from the current owner:

We have worked hard to create this lovely new 'lifestyle choice' business. It works well with family life and provides a good income. It has a license to operate, insurance and is very popular with tourists and Greeks alike. Although very new, we have had much repeat business already!

We have already hosted several birthday parties, group bookings and have a local hotel visit us once a week. We can advertise once per week on a Greek Facebook page for Chania mums which has over 10 000 members, plus we have our own Facebook page with number of 'likes' increasing daily.

We also have a great website which can be added to or changed by the owner of the site and we are visible on Trip advisor, google maps plus other sites. We have had much interest since opening this season and instinctively know it will be a very successful business. However, we have a new baby and we are missing being closer to home...

The Farm house 

70sqm with extra wrap around under cover veranda.

Spacious 2 bed house renovated sympathetically to nestle within the beautiful spot in which it resides. The current owner is a creative craftsman/ woodworker and so all works are bespoke including a magical high bed in child's room. 


Kitchen/ sitting area and a utility space.

This could be used as a family home or holiday let.

It benefits from cheap rate agricultural water (with filtration system) and cheap rate night time electricity supply during the summer and winter.

New White Goods and new cooker.

New boiler system which can be heated either by the sun, solid fuel wood burner or electric.

Pop up pool 24ft x 12ft (approx 7.3m x 3.6m)

Private garden

The Studio: (The Olive Store)

1 double bed + 1 high magical single bed

Bespoke quirky design

Includes White Goods, cooker, wood burner and own private garden

This studio provides income opportunities for short/long term lets. (There is currently a tenant on a 6 month let from October 2018). It can also provide general extra living space or used as a possible art studio.

The land:

All set on 10,000sqm of fertile land. There are picnic areas, children’s play spaces, a play tent as well as mini bikes and trikes area. The current owners host birthday parties, school visits, bike hire, pony and donkey rides, workshops, horse loans, venue hire and group bookings as well as wholesome and relaxing family days out.

The current owners have plans drawn up by an architect for 2 extra buildings – a small on site café and small accommodation space. The land is the correct size and has the correct 'uses of the land' for these to go through planning permission without problems

The overall building density allowed for residential use is 150sqm. However, should one get a hotel license, then it is possible, subject to planning, to build up to 1,000sqm.

The land is described as “irrigated agricultural land” and uses allowed on the plot are:


·        Private house

·        Agricultural warehouses

·        Greenhouses

·        Winery

·        Small scale tourist business up to 40 beds as motels , rent rooms

·        Agro tourism facilities after getting permission from the Directorate for rural development

·        Restaurants ( maximum capacity up to 200 people )

·        Refreshment bar

·        Sports facilities

The Trees: 

The land has 75+ olive trees which provide a bounty of olive oil each year. Also there are several fruit trees and bushes (including about 30 newly planted orange trees) and a walnut tree, young lemon trees, a young pomegranate tree, blackberry bush, young grape vines and more!

This venture would ideally suit a creative family who would love to address their work life balance and work in harmony with nature or anyone seeking a self- sufficient lifestyle. It would also suit a company or business man/ lady who could continue the growth of the company or someone who has alternative ideas for business on the land.  The owners would ideally, like to sell to someone who wants to continue the current business with an ethical approach.  If a buyer wants to explore other business opportunities on the land (as listed above) then they are happy to explore other options to ensure the well-being of the animals.
