Authentic hand made cabin deep in the woods of mount Olympus.
It is perfect for a getaway, providing a break from the hustle and bustle of city life and it can be a great base from which you can explore Olympus mountain and the beaches nearby.
The house is filled with the comforts of a country home.
It's is simple, rustic living for those who want to be closer to nature, surrounded by trees and birdsongs.
Feel like home!
The house is filled with the comforts of a country home. It features two traditional living-sitting areas with a fireplace and two wide comfortable beds in each one. A fully equipped kitchen area and a renovated bathroom. For the hot months there's also a summer kitchen and bathroom with direct access from the garden.
There's also a balcony with an amazing view to the sea and a super big sunny landscaped courtyard for you to enjoy.
The thick stone walls combined with the fireplaces offer excellent insulation but a stove is available if needed, so the cottage can be used all year.
Walking out of the front door brings you immediately into the mountains!
You can have the whole space, with your own own front door and the cozy courtyard garden where you can sit, enjoy the beautiful views of the surrounding hills and relax. From our garden you can access the neighbouring forest paths should you wish to go for a walk, bike or run.
The access to the house is by car. You can park it just above the house and then use the staircase path shown in the photos to get to the house. It's like a fairytale!
Interaction with guests
As much as you would like. If it's me present then I can welcome you in person and briefly show you how things work in the cottage. I'm happy to provide you with local advice and recommendations. Otherwise I'll be available by phone, text or email and someone else will be around in case you need help.
We live in the town of Litochoro which is nearby so we won't have everyday contact with you but we will be there in case you need us. Feel free to ask us for our homemade jams, local tea, information or anything you may need!
Other things to note
Just remember that you are in the woods, a bit aways from the nearest town so you should plan your supplies carefully. There is civilization a few miles away but you'd better be prepared :).
Also note that the cabin does not have power supply. We kept it like this on purpose mostly due to environmental thinking but also because we really enjoy living closer to the primitive way. However, do not worry about that, the house is also powered by photovoltaic panels so there's power and light for the basic needs. Yes, there's plenty of hot water, too ;).
We want you to relax and enjoy the space and treat the cottage in the same way you treat your own home - with love and care!
