Our home

We offer a simple but very charming rural house (which we call 'Mandala') in U-shape which was renovated with much love. In our house and garden you have the feeling to be completely alone.
The kitchen is very authentic with old ceiling.
Adjoining to the kitchen is the dining room (with an extra bed), then follows the sitting room. The main bedroom (double bed) is very cosy and made in traditional Greek style. In front of the main house stands a very old Eucalyptus tree.
On top of the house is a large pergola/terrace with a georgous view on the town Marpissa, the sea and the neighbouring island Naxos.
In the studio there are three more beds and an open-air shower/WC entwined with bougainvilla! You feel on a different planet.
There is also a pigeon house (with no beds)with an adjoining wine press.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

There are not only one, but many sitting places around the house, one in a zen-garden like small garden, one under shady trees besides a threshing round etc.
The sea is 2 km away from the house, easily reachable by car of by foot. You are near to the sea but also to the mountains, where you can hike. A lovely place for people who like nature, solitude and quitness and who like to medidate.
