Situated on a small hill on the outskirts of the beautiful and picturesque town of Vamos, "Xatheri" offers self-catering accommodation in a traditional setting.It consists of two buildings, the "Erotokritos" on the left and "Aretousa" on the right.Built entirely of stone and wood and set in an area of 1500 square meters, they look as if they were an integral part of the surroundings.
The accommodation consists of two two-storey houses, with an area of 120 square meters each, and a shared pool and BBQ. On the ground floor of each house there is a kitchen with fitted appliances and all the necessary cooking utensils, the dining room, bathroom, the living room, and a bedroom with a double bed, as well as verandas. An impressive stone staircase leads upstairs where there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed, and the other with two singles, balconies and a bathroom with a bathtub and washing machine. Each building has central heating, a fireplace, unlimited wireless Internet access, TV, DVD, a safe in each bedroom, furniture on all the balconies and verandas, and a parking space. The houses are built using natural materials (wood and stone) and the tiled roofs are insulated against heat. External window frames with screens and tilt mechanisms have been fitted to allow continuous ventilation. Thanks to this natural air conditioning system, the buildings are cool even on the hottest of summer days. Nevertheless, for supplementary cooling there are fans and A/C in all the bedrooms.
The rooms are cleaned, towels and bedlines changed every four nights of stay.
When you arrive, you will find all the necessary supplies for your basic needs (coffee, sugar, mineral water, juice, milk, toast, jam, butter, biscuits, fruit, eggs, ham, cheese and cake) have been provided in the kitchen to welcome you, along with a gift box containing raki (a Cretan distilled drink) and a bottle of wine.
Pool and Garden
The pool, which is 4m wide by 8m long and from 1.10m to 1.60m deep, is situated in the rear courtyard next to the BBQ and the lush green garden. Here guests can enjoy the water and the sunshine while admiring the view of the beautiful mountains.
The large and shady area by the BBQ provides a space where breakfast, lunch or dinner can be enjoyed accompanied by the sounds of nature. And when night falls, the decorative lighting makes shadows that play with the light in a very impressive way.
