The Hard Old Way!

Solid Stone Houses from the builder.

A2 Near completionReal stone houses in real Cretan villages with incredible views stretching across Crete and over the Aegean Sea. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of mass developments along the coast to be secluded and private; yet within reach of several sandy beaches if that is your thing. Traditional houses should fit snugly into their environment. Our houses are constructed with that thought foremost in our mind.

Our aim is to create houses that blend unobtrusively into the existing traditional village environment. Our properties are located in a tranquil location, with stunning panoramic views, and are laid out following the traditional village pattern. The solid stonework draws heavily on traditional artistic details such as pigeon holes and stone patterns. All this of course, combined with modern day features ensuring comfort and safety.

      We firmly believe that our houses are:
  • faithful replicas of existing old houses
  • genuinely earthquake-resistant
  • environmentally friendly
  • a sound investment for the future

On The Rocks: Six houses are currently under construction on a 5,000 sq. m. stretch of upland within the boundaries of the village Melidoni.

The houses are built to the highest standards and are very robust. You are welcome to view the project at any time, with or without prior notice. Just ask for “the stone houses” at the village coffee-shop.

Each house will have all-round panoramic views towards:

  • Mount Psiloritis (Ida) far to the east
  • The highest peaks of the White Mountains to the south
  • The Aegean Sea in two directions – northwards to Kalyves and Souda, northeast towards Georgioupolis and Kavros bay
  • The Apokoronou highland peninsula to the west

Each house has been carefully placed in such a way as to ensure that these views will remain unimpeded even if additional houses are built on neighbouring lands.

Each of our houses is built on a different level, following the traditional village pattern, and is unique, yet traditional in its own way.

Our current construction project is a small development within the village of Melidoni, located just to south of Hania, in West Crete. The slideshow above will give you an idea of the project scope.
