Lithos House

Tzitzifes, Apokoronas


In the heart of the little old village of Tzitzifes, we find the Lithos House, an authentic old village house, respectfully restored in 2004 and now comprising two separate apartments built in local architectural style. The two split-level units share one roof. The Lithos House was built halfway the 1800’s and still maintains several of the original elements inside, creating a unique atmosphere. The great personal interest and care of the owner for this restoration-project have resulted into two vacation units breathing an atmosphere of traditional character and style.The tranquil setting at one of the narrow village streets and the original character of the house gives you the opportunity to enjoy the Cretan village life during your stay. The village of Tzitzifes in the area of Apokoronas features a little square, a kafeneion and a ‘’ pantopoleio” (a tiny mini-market in village style). Two local taverns are situated about 700 meters of the Lithos House. Nearby villages are Fres (2km), Vrisses (4km) and Kalyves (7km). A prebooked car is recommended at the Lithos House.

Accommodation Types

The two houses differ slightly in size. Each one can accommodate up to 3 persons.

Both of the units have TV, a safety deposit box (extra charge) and air conditioning (extra charge).

A picturesque, shared vine-covered courtyard outside is furnished with a table and chairs for each of the homes and offers a most pleasant opportunity for relaxation.

The Lithos House offers a unique holiday address: the friendly atmosphere of the old times combined with nowadays comfort.
