This renovation project is situated in the village of Petres, Askifou, Sfakia.
Petres is one of the 4 villages which makes up the settlement of Askifou – the others being Goni, Kares and Ammoudari. Askifou is situated in a ‘bowl’ in the mountains, dominated by the imposing ruins of the castle and is served by the excellent main road from Vrysses to the North and Chora Sfakion on the South coast. The extensive beaches of the North coast and the resorts of Kalyves and Georgeoupolis are both approximately 10 minutes from Vrysses. Chania and Rethymnon are both around a 30-minute drive away. The area of Sfakia is well known for its exceptional mountain and coastal scenery, its colorful history and its enduring cultural heritage as well as the hospitality and generosity and friendliness of the inhabitants.
This home was built in 1940 and has a traditional ‘sterna’ or cistern which was used to collect rainwater.
There is a piece of land of 272m2 adjacent to the property, which is included in the sale. All in all a property with a lot of potential and well worth seeing.
