Accommodation Description

· Barbecue · Swimming pool

From this hilltop glamping pod, guests will get all the best views that the Island of Crete in Greece has to offer—from the surrounding sea, mountains, and valleys to the property's own beautiful olive and fruit trees. This two-person accommodation is elevated above the property, giving guests plenty of privacy, especially as the hill is only accessible to those staying in the pod.

Inside the handmade pod, there is a double bed and a separate kitchen, which has a two-burner stove and a refrigerator. Other amenities include free Wi-Fi and all linens and towels (except for beach towels, unless staying for a week or more). Outside of the pod, guests will find the bathroom area, which includes a shower with sun-heated water that allows glampers to rinse off while gazing out at the sea. There is a shared pool on-site that guests have access to, as well.

On the pod's deck, guests can kick back and relax on the sun loungers, grill up some food on the barbecue, and enjoy a meal at the picnic table. Glampers will also enjoy the soothing smells of the lavender, thyme, and rosemary that are all around the exterior of the pod. Read More
