Koutsounari Traditional Cottages - Ierapetra
Crete - Heraklion Area
Self-catering Apartments

The traditional settlement of Koutsounari is just 10 km from beautiful Ierapetra, at an altitude of 600m and just beneath the 'little Meteora' of Crete. These stone-built residences scattered around Koutsounari were built exclusively by Cretan builders using traditional, locally sourced materials. Some of the residences are clustered together to form a friendly traditional neighbourhood, while others are further up the hillside.

With a view of the Libyan Sea as far as the eye can see, the accommodations adds a dreamy dimension to your holiday, helping you to leave the stress of everyday life behind. Their authentic Minoan architecture, the original aesthetic decorative touches, the rich natural setting and verdant gardens provide an oasis of serenity for visitors. It is just here that local identity meets hospitality and discreet service.

Koutsounari Traditional Cottages, recently rejuvenated with subtle visual and decorative touches, are now the perfect getaway for relaxation and sensual enjoyment. Colours that highlight the traditional whitewashed walls and built-in sofas of stone that pop with bold colour selections in fabrics and cushions provide a warm welcome for all guests.

The settlement comprises little neighbourhoods of single buildings and extends throughout the village. The complex has been built with the utmost respect for the local architecture and natural environment. Lean forms, primitive natural materials and the patina of time create an air of authenticity. Collectibles and books on art, literature and design round out the homey atmosphere of the accommodations.

Each residence has a living room with a decorative fireplace/hearth, bedroom, kitchenette, bathroom and private veranda. The furnishings are understated and reflect Cretan tradition, combining with carefully selected objects to provide balance and serenity within the built environment. The traditionally white walls with practical inserts reflect the abundant Mediterranean light that shines through the small windows.

Rare collectibles contrast harmoniously with utilitarian works of art. Each dwelling is configured and decorated differently, but all aim to make visitors feel right at home. Each residence provides unique features and imaginative use of space to make your stay special.
