Full description:

Are you looking for a rural retreat? This fantastic 3 bedroom/2 bathroom stone built house of 125sqm on a 950sqm plot with room for a pool, if required, is located in the traditional village of Vatolakos and is ideal for countryside lovers.

Vatolakos is a small traditional village set in the foothills of the White Mountains, surrounded by magnificent scenes of Crete’s nature. It is very “Greek” about 14km away from beaches and with a typical Cretan feel; the main occupation of the permanent population is agriculture and farming.

The village has a 22 meter high clock tower, olive and oil museum and a winery. Do not miss the opportunity to follow the old path of the village along Valsamiotis River, an extremely pleasant walk of around 1 km through dense vegetation that the residents of the village brought to surface with hard volunteer work. The path connects the square of the village to the newly built Valsamiotis Dam. 

For every day amenities the village offers a supermarket and 3 well known tavernas with homemade Greek food. Alikianos is a bigger village with many amenities located just a few minutes’ drive from Vatolakos.

For lovers of a less busy environment and a typical Cretan village life, this villa is just what you are looking for.

The property was built in 2010 and offers a lot of potential. It is within walking distance of the village square and is surrounded by greenery.

The 50cm thick stone walls keep the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Accommodation details:
Open living/dining area with stone walls, wooden beamed ceilings and a stone fire place in the corner.

To the left is the fully fitted kitchen with a patio door giving access to the front courtyard. There are plenty of kitchen cupboards and a traditional stone wood oven has been installed.

An impressive stone arch separates the living area from the kitchen, and the tastefully decorated shower room houses a small storage area under the stairs.

Wooden stairs with an iron banister lead to the upper floor with sloping wooden ceilings comprising the 3 bedrooms and the master bathroom. 

The master bedroom has a walk in closet, air conditioning and a large sliding glass door opening to a balcony overlooking the surrounding hills.

The second double bedroom shares the same balcony and the third bedroom is smaller and could be used as an office or playroom.

The bathroom in terracotta tiles comes with a full length bathtub.

A door opens from the hall to the balcony shared with 2 bedrooms.

All 3 bedrooms have wooden floors.

Pipes have been installed for the future installation of a fuel powered central heating system. 

An iron entrance gate opens to a large concrete driveway leading to the covered parking area, large enough to park several cars. 

As the plot is divided by a small river, you must cross a wooden bridge to access the house with its large stone paved exterior patios and BBQ area. This has potential to be upgraded to extensive living areas with covered pergolas and extensions. 

There is a possibility to build a pool if one would wish to do so.

The surroundings are lush and green, with bamboos and mature trees in the garden. 

The property has rental potential and could also be used as a home away from home.
