Inspired By Le Corbusier

Small can expand our horizons. Embracing simplicity and allowing for reflection and relaxation is what escape is all about and here, great design gets you back to nature. 

Far from the bustling tourist areas, these cabin rentals in Crete among endless olive trees, were designed by husband and wife team of artists to share the island’s peaceful beauty and sustainable “slow living.”

Inspired by Le Corbusier’s Le Cabanon, this duo of cabins celebrates minimalism and the sanctuary of nature.  

The simple box forms with facades of glass facing the views are composed of board formed concrete with wood accents and bold modernist lines.  

The all in one spaces feel both intimate and expansive, with clever use of the compact layout, and designed with a tasteful Nordic inspired style. 

Laze in the hammock listening to the cicadas or on the deck amidst incredible views of the mountains and the sea.

A second cabin is also available to rent next door. Meet the owner in our Journal section here.

Description

Placed on a top of a heel, above a garden of olive trees, these cabin rentals in Crete are the perfect way to disconnect in nature. 

The drive up the dusty winding road illustrates the level of seclusion you’ll find here. And it’s worth the climb!

Designed by a husband and wife duo and inspired by Le Corbusier’s charming cabin built for his wife, they both celebrate simplicity, and modern design and the beauty of the Mediterranean.

The all-in-one spaces are Brutalist concrete on three sides with a wall of glass facing the views and opening out to the terrace.

There’s a compact living space with a fully equipped kitchen, a pedestal sleeping area, and even a fireplace for chilly nights. 

From the terrace, the horizon spreads out in front of you with lovely views of the island landscapes and the Mediterranean in the distance.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Self check-in available, breakfast items included.  Wifi throughout, kitchen and bath amenities, on site parking.

AROUND

Known for its ancient history and natural beauty, Crete has something for everyone. From the cabins, the mostly agricultural land is still farmed with the olive oil harvest every November and several wineries nearby. Head down the hill to the closest beaches of Nopigia or Choni, two largely undiscovered spots. The ancient city of Rokka is nearby as as well as Polirinia, once an impressive city. 

The western coast of Crete features wild natural landscapes and two of the top ten ranked beaches in Greece: Balos and Elafonisi. 

A quieter less populated region, it stretches from Balos and Falasarna to Livadia, Elafonisi and the Krios peninsula in Paleohora and Kissamos to the north. 

The village of Livadia is a charming and traditional village and is located along the the seaside route of the European E4 hiking path. The historic old port town of Chania with its Venetian harbor, seaside palaces and busy resorts is about an hour’s drive, and the medieval archeological heritage village of Maroulas is situated just a few miles from the Venetian harbor town of Rethymno along the scenic northern coastline.

  • Polina, September 27, 2019

    A beautiful place to stay! Located within driving distance of incredible and famous beaches of western Crete, e.g. Balos is an hour away. Design quality is good and enables a greater sense of closeness to nature than other places in Crete that I tried. The views from anywhere, both outside and inside of the building (which is designed to dissolve such boundary), are exceptional!

    We spent amazing days in this beautiful house. Antonis led us to the house, which is located in the middle of a land full of olive trees, it’s wonderful. You feel immersed in nature. We really relaxed in this place. The house is very well-designed, minimal and comfortable, with everything you need. You could stay all day long on the hammock reading and listening to the cicadas, and be happy. Sofia promptly answered to every question, and Antonis immediately came to help us when we had a problem with our car. They left us a lot of local super good food. They are very attentive to the needs of their guests. We had a great time and if there will be the occasion we will return for sure!

    What an amazing place! Sofia and Antonis have built something truly unique in the middle of olive trees. Great views, very cool style and still so cosy! With all the fresh food left in the fridge you‘re sorted for breakfast which you can enjoy on the beautiful terrace. If you want to get away from it all and still be in proximity of the Crete’s best beaches, this is THE place to be. Don’t miss it – highly recommend!

    We don’t have words to express how in love we were with our minimalist sanctuary. My husband and I were able to completely unwind in this beautiful home amidst an incredible view of olive orchards, mountains and the sea. We fell asleep each night to quiet of the night sky and awoke each morning with daylight. We left feeling so inspired and relaxed. Our only wish was to have more time. We give our highest recommendation and cannot wait to return !!!
