The Stone House of Karavostassi + ( Istro)

3 Apartments (Restored House)

On the edge of one of the three pretty beaches at Istro sits this rustic solid stone house with three apartments. This old thick stone walled house, which once was a warehouse is surrounded on three sides by the sea. Today, building is no longer permitted so close to the beach, so a waterfront house like this is very rare. To the left of the house are two tiny sand and pebble beaches and further over on the right side, is the long beach, with its sandy background of trees from which the Stone House takes the name of Karavostassi.

The word roughly means the place where the boats anchor. The village of Istro, which is 1,5 km away can be reached on foot by walking across the beach and through the olive groves. The house has three deceptively spacious maisonette apartments brightly decorated in a really delightful simple Mediterranean cottage style. There is a large stone terrace in front of the house, with outstanding views of the bay and Karavostassi beach. The terrace is divided into three different areas, for each of the three apartments, and each is supplied with patio furniture:
A: Open style maisonette for 2-3 people with a small kitchenette and living room with a sofa bed, which is located on the ground floor. Above there is an open sleeping gallery with a double bed and bathroom/WC.
B: Open style maisonette for 3 people with a small kitchenette, a living room with a sofa bed and a bathroom/WC. Upstairs there is a sleeping gallery with a double bed on a slightly raised platform, as well as a single bed on the lower level.
C: A maisonette for 4-5 people with a small kitchenette, a living room with a sofa bed and a bathroom/WC. On the upper level there are two bedrooms, separated by a wooden wall. One bedroom has two single beds and the other has a double bed.
This house is ideal for those seeking a relaxing holiday in natural surroundings and will provide an unforgettable holiday. A car is recommended.
