OLIVE VALLEY VIEW Nikithianou
Olive View, Nikithiano, Crete
Want to savour the real life of Crete but still be near to beaches & modern day life?
Well here’s the answer for you, in our recently renovated stone house in the traditional village of Nikithiano – with superb views of the valley, mountains & local villages, it’s ideally situated just off of the local highway– about 10 minutes drive from the cosmopolitan resort of Aghios Nikolaos, 10 mins from the fishing village of Sissi & 15 minutes from the resort of Malia – the bus stop is at the top of the village.
This attractive 86sq m, 2 bedroom/2bathroom village stone house has had many of the original features retained. It accommodates up to 4 persons, but ideal for 3. Access to the house is along a village path. An ‘upside down house’, the outside stone steps take you up to the main living area – lounge (with open fire) with small open-plan fitted kitchen, 2nd mezzanine bedroom (with double sofa bed) & bathroom (with bath/shower) Downstairs you will find a master bedroom with double bed & ensuite bathroom with shower. The kitchen is fully fitted with microwave, full cooker & fridge/freezer.
But for most the terrace is the place to pass away your time, with stunning views over the valley & surrounding villages
(2 sunbeds & umbrella included)
Towels/beach towels & DVD/CD player included
The village itself is set on the hillside overlooking a lush valley of olive trees, vineyards and a smattering of almonds, pomegranates & fig. Untouched by tourism you’ll find yourself immediately in the middle of village life. No need even to cook as there is a local taverna at the bottom of the village serving excellent food.
