Our stone houses

In the middle of our olive trees are two cottages. They are stone houses with a very individual character. Each has a private ‘cool tub’ on the terrace where you can enjoy the views over the mountains, and in the evening you can hang in your hammock to count the thousands stars. The houses are constructed so that you live mainly outside. But even when you go inside, you will enjoy a welcome atmosphere. There is a living area with an equipped kitchen and seating and dining facilities, a bathroom and a bedroom, all decorated in a mix of Oriental and rural styles.

A stay on Kalyvitis is a time to relax, a moment away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The Cabins are very comfortably furnished, but refrain from the luxury features of today. So telephone and internet connection are limited and air condition is optional. Here, everything revolves around the alternative luxury of space, tranquility and nature!


The outside life

Depending on the month and your own wishes, you can in your own time enjoy outside life. We organize (free) activities such as:

  • walking tours, made to measure
  • a visit to our bees in their beehive with explanations about their life and work,
  • a visit to an olive factory to find out everything about olives and olive oil from Crete,
  • look at how Cretans make goats cheese or how they distil raki,
  • and of course we will give you also extensive tips and explanations about the environment if you want to make a trip on your own.
