Cheap property in Crete for sale, with stunning views of the famous Psiloritis mountain. The old traditional house has two floors of 60m in total, on a plot of 75m...
 
As typical for the Cretan architecture and tradition, the house for sale was built by using local stone and wood. This traditional property can be converted into lovely home with nice country views, suitable for holidays or for permanent use.

There is also a yard of 15m on the back side of the house, where one can enjoy the spectacular views of the landscape and the Psiloritis mountain range.

This is an ideal property for those wishing to be within reach of the major town of Rethymnon but want to experience real Cretan village life.




Location


The Amari province is often seen as the heartland of Crete and the repository of its culture. Its capital Amari is surrounded by tranquil, unspoilt villages. From the legend of Zeus to the horrific bloodbath at Moni Arkadiou, Crete's tormented history took shape under the shadow of the looming Mt. Psiloritis. You will need your own transport to visit this province which is poorly deserved by public transport, although there are three buses a day from Rethymnon to Amari.


The Amari valley can be reached either from Rethymnon or from Agia Galini. This region harbours around 40 well-watered, unspoilt villages set amid olive groves and almond and cherry trees.


Moni Arkadiou is an impressive 16th century monastery. In 1866 the Turks sent massive forces to quell insurrections which were gathering momentum throughout the island. Hundreds of men, women and children who had fled their villages used the monastery as a safe heaven. When 2000 Turkish soldiers attacked the building, rather than surrender, the Cretans set light to a store of gun powder. The explosion killed everyone, Turks included, except one small girl. She lived to a ripe old age in a village nearby.


The villages of the Amari are mostly small and are gathered around the slopes of the hills. There is a road that runs through most of the villages and completely circumnavigates the valley. It is truly a wonderful place to sit and imagine the millennia that people have lived here since Minoan times five thousand years ago.


The people of the Amari are the most friendly that you will find on the island and if you speak with them you will most often find yourself laden with fruit to carry home. The gift of fine and noble people.
