‘The House of Kerash Bey’ is an unusual residence. Sleeping accommodation consists of four large bedrooms, each with it’s own character, set over two floors and around a central vine-covered atrium. A large, light, friendly kitchen/dining area leads out to a grapevine-covered terrace, perfect for al fresco dining. Many meals (meat and vegetarian) will be taken at the house. We can discuss provision for guests with special diet needs who are welcome to self cater, as long as they respect chef’s schedule (temperamental Yannis wields a mean pastry brush).
Bedroom 1: situated on the second floor has a sea view to the North through the large picture window, and double doors out onto a balcony; ceiling fans and en suite w/c. Best room in the house!
Bedrooms 2 & 3: two large ground floor rooms each with a ‘corner’ aspect and a set of lighted doors leading onto the outside courtyard, as well as their own exits to the street. En suite facilities and ceiling fans for comfort. See gallery for photos.
Bedroom 4: off the internal courtyard with polished wooden floor, ceiling fan and window to the west; large shower and w/c across the hall.
Further accommodation is offered at Pension Leonides, the well established and friendly family run pension a short stagger from Drapanias beach. All rooms have en suite facilities and balconies. Sea views on a first come first served basis. NB. Guests here will be ferried to and fro for all programmed activities.
Food: Meals in Crete are informal fun affairs, rich in delicious local products and commonly enjoyed with at least a modicum of village wine. Whether taken at the house or at one of several nearby tavernas, we hope that by the end of your stay you will have become big fans of Greek cuisine. The Cretan diet includes a variety of meat, vegetarian and seafood dishes and menus vary throughout the year, as ingredients are seasonal – anyone can help in the kitchen if they want to.
