The spacious living room has a double and a single bed, there is also a comfortable sofa bed. The small bedroom is furnished with two bunk beds - ideal for children. In addition, the sofa in the dining room, which is located between the kitchen and living room, can be converted into a bed. Kitchen and bathroom are basic but functional. A washing machine is available and an internet access via WLAN is available.
The house is very comfortably furnished, and many lovingly draped utensils show how people lived not so long ago in such a farmhouse.
Some trees in the garden are as old as the house is and provide plenty of in the summer so much needed shade. From the veranda with a barbecue area one can see among the olive trees the sparkling sea. The house is situated off the main road and provides plenty of rest, although it is not far from the tourist resort of Stoupa, which can be reached on foot via a path off the main road. There is a bicycle at the house free to use.
Also, for stays during the winter, this house is suitable. It is heated with a wood stove and for long winter evenings there is also a television.
The house was 2013/14 completely renovated. Please ask also for our brief introduction to the house.
Her name is mentioned only once in Nikos Kazantzakis novel 'Zorba the Greek'. She was the the beautiful widow (in the film played by Irini Papas) in which Kazantzakis had fallen in love.
We named our house 'Sourmelina' because the widow which lived in this house the time Kazantzakis was staying in Stoupa, has probably inspired him to the figure. The house which was at that time the administrative building of the coal mine is just 150 meters away...
