Pervolakia - Crete.

In the village of PERVOLAKIA in eastern CRETE - a Villa for holiday rental. The rentalof the house is only £125 (sterling) per person per week (perfect for two but sleepsup to four) which is a very very low rental for this type of property. We have set it low as we are just starting to holiday - let the house and we DO wish to let it as muchas possible. So you get the advantage of a very low rental (normal rental would be 4Xthis) plus the fact that everything is brand new.


We have lots of photos we can email. The house is situated in the village of Pervolakia in eastern Crete (twixt Sitia and Makrialagos) and is approached by awinding road where, at the brow of the hill there is a wonderful bowl of a valleybathed in the brilliant sun.


There are neat olive groves, donkeys and herds of goats. The village is situated in the middle of this bowl surrounded by mountains. It is called Pervolakia and is veryquaint and relatively untouched by the modern world.


It has a bar and a small restaurant. No shop, so stock up at one of the beachsupermarkets on the coast at Makrialagos (about 8 miles away).


The house is large with 2 bedrooms and has a large terrace and a floralgarden.


All new furniture and fittings and decoration.


There are walks galore in all directions, the main one being Pervolakia Gorge downto the monastery of Moni Kapsa and the beach (about 2.5 hours) but there are walks galore on the island of Crete.


The food in Manoli's small restaurant is wonderful (fresh herbs from the mountainside, vegetables from the village allotments, and fruit from the hedgerows - being food as you have never tasted before! Absolutely wonderful and no wonder they all live to such a great age.


If you're interested there are several houses to be bought for say a holiday home or eventual retirement home or a clubhouse at about £15K - with work to bedone of course to bring them up to standard. But what a project!


This is one of the bargain areas within the EU and the villagers would welcome new people into their village as there is an ageing population. So just ask Manoli in the village bar/restaurant he'll know what's available.


Flights are to Heraklion on Crete direct, or fly to Athens, then on to Heraklion.Car Hire is essential - details later.
