If you wish to write, paint, live...come to the fairytale old village of Kato Mixorouma, and stay in a stone-built cottage in a garden flooded with flowers and trees on the bank of the river full of ducks and gees, and let the singing of the birds and the splashing of the river rock you to sleep and calm you. The property contains two small cottages, approximately 50sq m each in a 1000 sq m lot. The cottage in this ad has a small but practical kitchen, a living room with fireplace and a bathroom which is access through the living room and is semi open air. The sleeping area for 2, is on the built-in mezzanine. The cottages are quite simple, but appropriate. Mrs Angela, the owner, will offer true Cretan hospitality during your stay.

The History of Kato Mixorouma

The village is in a very calm place surrounded by mountains right on the river. It is in the old historical village of Kato Mixorouma where very few people currently live, as the new village is built about 200-300 meters away. The village has old houses of traditional cretan architecture, which we are now in the process of trying to get the state to fund in order to preserve and define it as a traditional village. Here is a little bit of history….The settlement of Kato Mixorouma is referenced in the first known recording of settlements in Crete by Fr.Barozzi in 1577 and in the Basilicata in 1630. It is also referenced in the Turkish census in 1659 and in the Egyptian census in 1834.

The Kato Mixorouma is built on the north bank of the river which starts in Spili, running year round with lush vegetation dominated by trees, willows, myrtles, oleanders, reeds and citrus. The spectacle that the visitor sees is impressive. The beauty truly captivates the senses. It is a picturesque village with stone houses of special architecture with three mills which (despite the ravages of time) are characteristic monument of the life of the local residents combined with the exploitation of natural resources.

One of the three water mills had multiple uses as it was used in parallel as a flour mill, olive mill and a fabric mill (to create more coherent fabrics). All water mills are located in the same building with three separate wells. So the village soon became an innovative industrial center of the time and we can understand the importance of Kato Mixorouma in the local economy and its contribution to the further development of the region. Similarly, the vegetation along the river gave the raw material for the basketry craft to be developed and become an exquisite craft. Villagers still create lovely baskets in Mixorouma.

Hints & Tips from the Owner:
There is a supermarket, bakery and plenty of "kafenia" (traditional coffee shops) located at about 200m in the new village of Mixorouma. About 2.5km away, in Spili, you can find everything you need from services (post office, bank, pharmacy, health center etc) to coffee shops, super markets, taverns and more. From Kato Mixorouma you can explore both the northern and southern part of the island, the beautiful coastal towns of Ag. Galini, the famous beaches of Triopetra and Agios Pavlos, Preveli lake and monastery, the breathtaking Kourtaliotiko gorge, the less known beaches of Ammoudi, Sxinaria, Damnoni and lastely the cosmopolitan village of Plakias. The city of Rethymnon is about 20km away for plenty of nightlife options. For the most adventurous, the E4 trail, which begins just next to the cottage, will eventually lead you to the magnificent Preveli lake!

The house is in hilly woodland - surrounded by the divine elements of nature- sunshine, flowers, a stepped garden, river , birds( particularly geese) and occasionally hungry felines. The house is charming and antiquated- but things work- i.e. electricity and hot water. This is a perfect retreat near the lovely village of Spili. With a car parked in the nearby abandoned and atmospheric village- you are in a position to escape to a place of tranquility- but it is frankly easy to go to different beaches and places of interest. One of the main attractions is Angela herself.

Angela, we loved your little piece of paradise. From the moment we entered the garden, we were in awe. So beautiful, so romantic. Flowers in bloom everywhere, level after level of places where we can sit and read or just relax. Love the sound of the river at night. Food at the local traversa " Petrokofino " is incredible- just 100 metre walk. Thank you so much!!! Anne-Marie and Doug

Jeder der was spezielles ruhiges sucht im einige Gänge runter zufahren ist es sehr sehr schön. Die Anlage befindet sich am Flusslauf rund um Bäume. Nachbaren gibt es nicht wirklich. Es ist 5min vom Zentrum entfernt. Wer was sehr romantisches ruhiges sucht ist hier bestes bedient. Es gibt die Möglichkeit selber zu Grillen und Kochen. Die Küche ist bestens eingerichtet. Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen. Es gibt sehr viel in der Gegend zu entdecken. Mit dem Auto ist man schnell an den Stränden wo es kaum Menschen gibt.

Angela's "paradise" is very special. It is only a few minutes drive from the main road but it is tucked away with birdsong and the river the only sounds. The terraced garden is full of trees and flowers and although we didn't use it, the built in barbecue would be perfect in high summer. Inside the house is well equipped but be aware the mezzanine bedroom level has very limited headroom. The shower room is partially outside and would benefit from a bracket so you can stand under it rather than hand held. But if you're looking for somewhere completely different to the mundane routine of life and you want peace and quiet, Angela's house is perfect!

Angela is very helpful and a really postive person I'm not sure this place is suitable for everyone, but for me and my partner it was all that we could wish for. On the one hand Angea’s rustic cottage is in a remote area in the mountains, where the only sounds you will hear is water flowing in the brook, the chirping of birds and sometimes the bleating of sheep or the geese calling for some corn. On the other hand, it is just three minutes form a small town with a well-equipped supermarket and some really good restaurants, and 15 minutes from the beach.

Angela es encantadora. Nos recibió con una mousaka casera deliciosa. Lo más interesante de la casa es su enorme terraza llena de plantas y flores y la paz que se respira en el lugar pues se encuentra realmente en plena naturaleza. Gracias por todo Angela!
