Makrigialos Ierapetra - Sustainable Holiday
One, two and three room cottages.
Aspros Potamos, "White River" is a goupe of 10 holiday cottages steeped in nature and history, offering peace, tranquillity spirituality and simplicity. A place where the earth, stars and river reveal their true unadulterated beauty and magnificence. A place to restore the soul and the spirit and to dream.
Only sustainable electricity, no traffic, the silence only interrupted by the twittering of the birds, the soft chirruping of cicadas, the gentle babbling of the river as it flows down from the mountains past the cottages to the sea.
This is the place to seek nature, wonderful walks and a look back in history. A holiday with no footprints left in the environment and only renewable resources used. WiFi is included in the price.
