  • We climbed to Aptera, a town dating from the 5th century BC with substantial ruins - Roman cisterns, a classical Greek theatre and temple. On the very edge of the hilltop was a crumbling Turkish fort. From here must be the most stunning views across the Bay of Souda and the Akrotiri peninsula ,and to the fortified island at the mouth of the bay. Legend has it these islands were formed after a musical contest between the Muses and the Sirens. Defeated, the Sirens plucked off their wings and flung themselves into the sea to become islands.

Muses’ commands impressive views across Souda Bay over its garden and a pebble beach in front, and is only a stone’s throw to the small sandy beach at Kalami.

Standing alone, Muses is a traditional Cretan family house of great charm. It is stone-built which means it remains cool in the summer and kept warm during Spring and Autumn evenings with its cosy Cretan fireplace.

Muses’ is a spacious and comfortable house. The outstanding views can be enjoyed from the house or from the sitting out areas in its own garden, ideal for dining, relaxing and sunbathing. 

Open plan kitchen and dining room; living room with Cretan fireplace, ground floor twin bedroom with air con and adjoining bathroom with shower.

Upstairs double bedroom with air conditioning, en-suite bathroom with shower and balcony with stunning sea views.

Nearest cafe and taverna (seasonal opening) 1 mile (uphill walk). Kalives with its tavernas, beautiful sandy beach, shops, supermarket, bank and post office 5 minutes drive away.

The pebble beach below the house  is ideal for swimming and relaxing and the sandy beach, with a jetty from which to plunge, is only a few hundred yards away.
