Exceptionally restored traditional property in a picturesque village
Old stone house situated in the village of Maronia close to Sitia at the east of Crete. This property has two living rooms separated by an old-style arch, large windows, and a kitchen at a slightly raised floor level. There is one bedroom with one bathroom on this floor. Two tree branches cross the bedroom’s ceiling and the bed’s head-rest is designed on the wall with stones. There is also a storage room with an external access. What makes this property unique is its exceptional design. Originally, there was a spring of water going through the house that was used as a means of maintaining watermelons at a low temperature. This whole structure has been reserved and shaped into a fountain covered with glass at the interior of the house.
This traditional residential development is situated in the centre of one of the most picturesque villages of eastern Crete: Maronia, 7 kilometers from the town of Sitia in Lasithi prefecture. Lasithi has some of the most historical and beautiful mountainous villages of Crete. It also represents one of the few locations of the island that have remained untouched and virgin. The reason for this is mainly because of infrastructure which until recently was not as intense as in the rest of the island. Currently major road works are taking place in the area and the Sitia airport extension has now been completed in order to be able to accommodate international carriers.
