A peaceful escape into the walls of an ancient stone house in which you can enjoy your own private space: 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, and 2 large terraces with views over olive trees, valleys and the sea. Ideal for a small group of up to 4 people in search of somewhere eco-friendly, not too close and yet not too far from the port village. Ideal for Summer Holidays or just weekend's. Hikers, island-hoppers, families...
Almost 300 years ago, our main house was built on the mountain face and used by local farmers. It withstood numerous earthquakes thanks to the fact that it was built on a huge solid rock. You will notice the remains of the old village only meters away from us. The people had to gradually evacuate the landslides that kept occurring back in the 1800's. Much later on, the space you can stay in (the next terrace down from the main house) was carved into what are now two lovely little bedrooms that share a private bathroom. The meter thick stone walls keep the place cool in Summer meaning we don't need to use aircon; however, we can give you a fan if you feel like it. Just outside the rooms is a terrace you can lounge on whilst contemplating the majestic valley views and the blue sea in the background. Olive trees, flowers, a fresh water spring only a stone's throw away, traditional architecture...A wonderful escape for those of you who enjoy a very natural set up !
On another terrace you have access to your own kitchenette with a dining table under a small shady pergola. You are more than welcome to help yourself to whatever seasonal fruits are growing at the time of your visit, we also have a kitchen garden with fresh vegetables some of the time.
Servicios y zonas comunes
There is a lot of space outside: You have a lovely open terrace in front of your bedrooms with a stunning view over the hills, valley and sea. This terrace leads to some steps 20 meters away that take you to another (shady) terrace where your kitchenette is. There is a table and chairs under the palm leaf pergola that look out down the valley.. You are free to wander around the rather flowery and fruity garden, you will come across "The Chill Zone", a tempting and accessible hammock in the shade of two Olive trees overlooking Fellos valley. Dreamy!!!
The rooms are small and cosy with very thick stone walls that keep it cool or warm depending on the season.
Atención a los huéspedes
I am available to give anyone advice and tips on where to go. We are very laid back and easy going, guests are welcome upstairs just like they can keep to themselves in their own quarters. I make the odd appearance to water the flowers or to go and check the water tank in the lemon garden.
I am usually up for a hiking or snorkeling adventure with those who are keen. We have a bit of gear such as masks, snorkels, beach rackets...Just ask!
Otros aspectos destacables
The island get's very dry in Summer. Please economize water. We use solar power so have quick showers to save hot water for the next in line! (If you are a large group, your host can flick the switch and heat it up for you within 15min.)
Our tap water comes from the mountain and is perfectly fine to wash, rinse and shower in. However, we fill up our drinking water from the Spring which is 20meters from the house down a flight of steps.
There are a lot of sneaky feral cats roaming around so you have to be careful with any food left out.
Guests must feel at home! Since they are the only people on the property aside the host, this gives them the chance to spread out, enjoy the terraces late into the night after a home made dinner and not worry so much about immediate neighbours. The hosts house has a BBQ area which they are welcome to use.
If there are any smokers, please make sure cigarettes are put out properly in an ashtray. No smoking indoors please.
