It is a stone building, which was built in the 30's and was used as a grocery store by my grandmother after her husband’s death, to keep her and her three children. It was abandoned in the 60’s and was converted into a house by my parents in the late 80’s. It is located in one of the most picturesque villages of the prefecture of Chania, Kefalas, and it overlooks the White Mountains.

The ground floor of the stone building was used mainly as a grocery store in the past. But it was also used as a cafeteria (kafeneion). There is still a stone coffee burner, where coffee was roasted. At the semi basement, which was the storeroom, a stone wine press was built and there was also established a copper alembic for the distillation of the grape marc (the refuse of grapes after they had been pressed for winemaking) so “raki” the traditional Cretan snap was produced there. The same place was also used, for a while, for cheese making, where my grandmother produced traditional Cretan cheese with the milk which the shepherds of the area supplied her.
To emphasize aesthetically the age of the building, the outer walls have remained unpainted for a long time so that the passage of time can be impressed upon them.
The building architecture belongs to the style of the late Neoclassicism and it was renovated by ANTONIS NOUKAKIS ARCHITECTS
It has been decorated traditionally with some modern elements.

Our stay in Kefalas was great! Michael is a great host providing a bunch of great tips from good restaurants to beautiful beaches. The appartment was really beautiful providing everything you need. Fully equipped kitchen, barbecue, washing machine, nice roof top, and many more. The traditional style of the house and its furnishing creates a nice atmosphere. We felt completely well! Absolute recommendation!

Michael is the ultimate AirBnB host. Communcation has been quick, extremely friendly and helpful. And his lovely and charming old house is an absolute gem as well, perfectly and tastefully renovated and very well equipped for a comfy stay in the mountains in the northwestern parts of Crete. We loved every minute of our vacation, the quiet surroundings in the pittoresque little village of Kefalas, far away from all the tourism craziness. By car it is really easy to explore the region, the smaller and sometimes hidden beaches and caves, and even traveling to Chania or the southern coast, with a stopover at for e.g. the breathtakingly gorgeous Imbros gorge, is an easy trip. All in all, we can only wholeheartedly recommend Michael and Sarina's Old Grocery Store to each and everyone who wants to experience the remote parts of Crete, without myriads of other tourists, and a real chance to recharge your batteries just by taking in the landscape, scenerey and local everyday life. Thanks for everything, Michael. Ίσως θα επιστρέψουμε. :-)

Our visit to Sarina's Old Grocery store was lovely. We especially enjoyed the friendliness of Michael and his taking an interest in our trip to Crete. The view, especially of the sunsets, from the top balcony were incredible. The home had everything we needed in order to have a comfortable stay.

You were so brilliant guests. I have to apologise once more for the slow dripping from the pipes and the malfunction of the electric cooker. I want to assure you the the plumber made at last his work properly and that the electric cooker has been already replaced by a brand new one! So if you return sometime at the sunny Crete and wish to host you again you will find everything absolutely functional! :)

Hello Mickael, It was perfect! The house is typical, very clean and very pleasant to live inside and outside ... The terrace offers in the evening, a sumptuous view on the sunset behind the mountains. It is unique after a good day of visit and it is appreciated with the excellent wine! Thank you for your welcome, your advice, we will not forget those moments spent with you

A proximité du cœur de Kéfalas (n'hésitez pas à aller manger à la taverne Meterizi), cette grande maison est parfaite pour celles et ceux qui recherchent espace et tranquillité. Nous avons aimé vivre dans cette ancienne épicerie qui, malgré les aménagements de Michael, a conservé des traces de son histoire. Très fonctionnelle (avec notamment une machine à laver et un parking privé), confortable, avec une décoration simple, elle a parfaitement répondu à nos attentes et constitue un pied-à-terre idéal pour découvrir la région. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié profiter des chaises longues, le soir, à la fraîche, à proximité du jardinet où nous avons profité avec bonheur de la visite d'une chatte et de ses trois chatons. Nous avons également été sensibles aux attentions de Michael pour notre arrivée, avec notamment une bouteille de vin blanc de bienvenue, quelques fruits et du raki ! Pour le reste, la description de Michael sur la maison et ses équipements est complète et conforme à la réalité.

I like music a lot. Ι am not the best musician ever born, but I muddle through somehow. I like to taste good food and wine and I also enjoy cooking. I am a bloger - my blog is about physics and music - and I am also a 10000m runner. When I travel I like to be close to the nature…
