Koutsounari Traditional Cottages

Welcome to an unforgettable journey to a time when a holiday meant authentic, innocent simplicity...

The houses

Your dream can come true!

The traditional settlement of Koutsounari is just 10 km from beautiful Ierapetra, at an altitude of 600 metres 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 our guests. Surprises like the finely woven curtains serving as room dividers draw the eye and add an ethereal touch.

Wouldn’t you like to surrender yourself to this place of your dreams?
