This wonderful property is situated in a rural location midway between the villages of Aspro and Douliana and just a short drive from the lovely sandy beaches at Almerida. The owners have operated it as a bed & breakfast for quite a number of years but are now reaching retirement age and would like to pass the business on.
The property has about 184 sqm of living space on a plot of about 5,200 sqm. It comprises a very comfortable two-bedroom flat on the upper floor with a broad covered front veranda offering simply amazing sea views and three guest units on the separately-accessed lower level plus a very inviting 40 sqm pool. The large grounds have been landscaped and are a great place for children to play and for adults to simply enjoy the peace and quiet and beautiful views.
The owner's flat is reached through the property's electrically-operated main gate off the village road and the gravel driveway leads directly to the private parking area. The entry door leads to the sitting room with a wood-burner and the covered terrace facing the sea. The separate kitchen is compact but friendly and there is a loft area above the sitting room that can be used as a study or office. Both bedrooms have plenty of wardrobe space and each has access to its own private terrace, one overlooking the pool and rear courtyard and the the other with superb mountain views. The bedrooms share a large bathroom with a corner tub, toilet and bidet. A clothes washing machine and tumble dryer are also installed here. There is also a storeroom on this level, perfect for linens and supplies.
Access to the roof terrace is via a spiral staircase from the second bedroom terrace. The solar panel and satellite dish are situated on the roof terrace and are easily accessible for any required maintenance. The views from the roof terrace are simply amazing!!
A separate graveled driveway leads from the main gate to the lower level guest apartments. There are two spacious studio apartments and a one-bedroom apartment on the level. Each apartment is fully furnished and equipped. The studio apartments face the pool terrace with excellent mountain views and the one-bedroom apartment is in the front offering great sea views.
The property is situated on a large plot of about 5,200 that slopes gently down from the access road … hence the superb and panoramic views! The pool terrace is fully tiled and stone-paved with plenty of space for sun-loungers (included) and an area of the garden below the pool has been made into a childrens' play area.
The mature gardens have been planted with a variety of flowering plants and shrubs and the lower garden has many fruit trees and about 15 olive trees … plenty of your own extra-virgin olive oil for yourselves as well as for your guests. [It is easy to have personalised olive oil bottles and cans made here and these make a wonderful remembrance for guests and friends!]
Finally, there is a good-sized workshop with plenty of shelving and work bench space. The walk-in pool machinery room is also located in this area.
The villages of Kalives, Douliana, Gavalochori and Vamos are all very close by and offer a broad range of amenities as well as many fine tavernas and coffee shops to enjoy the naturally relaxed state of Crete!
