The space

On the inside, there are two rooms and a bathroom. The first room is the living room with a kitchenette, furnished with two sofa-beds, four chairs and a table.

THE AREA
What can I do here?

- Enjoy the calmness of the house and the yard by reading your favorite book, entertaining friends or family in a place with ample space for children to play and pets to run free.
- Wander in the picturesque streets and shops of the village or take a ride through the other 16 villages of the Lassithi Plateau.
- Visit Diktaio Antro, the cave where, accocrding to Greek mythology, Zeus was born, and explore the scents of the mountains, the enormous stalagmites and the lake inside.
- Taste one of the purest cuisines of the Mediterranean in one of the proposed local restaurants. You should, in no way, neglect to taste the wine and the local raki.
- Visit the shops selling local woven mats and embroidered cloth or visit the large outlet with pottery and see the potters at work and how they make olive oil, having also many local products on sale. (advice of guest Cristine!)
- Explore the area by hiking or cycling.
- Drive to the sea and the famous tourist resort Malia (26km, a 40-minute drive approximately) or to other nearby seaside locations.
- Discover the unique geomorphological landscape, the rare endemic bird species, several archaeological sites and hidden caves and gorges.

WHEN CAN I VISIT THE AREA?
- Summer (May-October): The temperature is normal and pleasant (a light sweater might be needed only at night and in the early morning).
- Winter (November-April): The house is also available during the winter. Diktaio Antro is open and many of the shops and restaurants of the area are open for business too. You will enjoy the absolute calmness and relaxation the Plateau offers while enjoying full central heating and a fireplace. (The house is NOT available in case of heavy snowfall - you will be informed in time).

Hi! I'm Argyris. The past 2 years I have been living in Athens, working as a graphic designer. I come from Crete and Psychro is the village of my grandpas that I also grew up in. I appreciate travelers who really want to discover the place that they visit, meet the local people, explore nature and try the activities that the place can offer. I would be more than happy to accommodate you, offer you my services and share with my knowledge. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me directly!
