Hidden in the traditional pavements of the village, the house can accommodate 4 people.
-On the ground level (60 square meters), there is 1 double bedroom (2 people)
-1 spacious living room with a built-in sofa bed and a folding bed (2 people)
- On the ground level there is also sitting room with a dining table for 6.
- The small but fully equipped kitchen is an independent room (you can see the door of the kitchen on the left hand of the central photo of our listing).

- In front of the entrance there is a porch (25 square meters) with an outdoor stone built table for 4 people.
The house is located in one of the most traditional and quiet parts of the village. There are neighboring houses, but no noises, a very peaceful place to spend your summer vacation. The center of Artemonas village is a 2 minute walk, where there are restaurants, a mini market and local buses and taxis to take you anywhere in the island.

If you have young children, you should be careful of the stairs that go to the basement (bathroom and storage room).
If you are searching for a luxurious house to spend your holidays, this is not the one! Our house is not a new, flashy house - it is a traditional, simple, cosy house in the heart of one of the most authentic neighborhoods of the island. Being a house in an island, the basement might be a bit damp so you might need to turn on one of the three dehumidifiers. We will be happy to help you in anything you will need during your stay, usually by email or phone.
Have all the fun you want, listen to our music, read our books, use everything the house provides, but please put them back in their proper place. This house belonged to our father and we love it very much - so much that we wanted to share it with the people that will respect it as much as we do!
Greek writer and journalist living in Paris with my husband. Love reading, writing, listening to music. I travel a lot and I know a lot about my city. If you book my place I will send you a lot of extra information about my neighbourhood and my city so that you get a really unique experience.
My books are my passion. But you are free to read them but place them back where you found them. My house is also my passion. So please take good care of it.
