The White House

This interesting building was once a derelict ruin until it was acquired by the present owner who then spared no expense in transforming it into the wonderfully comfortable and very special holiday home that it is today.

This is a spectacular house of classic Greek Island architecture on two floors, furnished with a wonderful combination of Norwegian design flair and traditional Cretan ambiance.

The house is in a truly unique position and with its commanding view over the old harbour allows guests to enjoy watching the comings and goings of the local fishing boats from their own private terrace.

Carefully chosen antiques, oriental fabrics and tasteful objets d'art have also been thoughtfully placed to further emphasise the highly individual character of this unique property.

The White House accommodates up to 7 people and the cost includes all of the facilities listed below.
