Key Features
We aim to provide you with a good quality property in Crete with good finishes. We believe our specification to be the best value available.

All our property in Crete is designed from the start for energy efficiency and low maintenance, with cavity walls, insulated roofs and solar panels.

We provide oil-fired central heating and air-conditioning in our larger houses (100 sq.m.+) and those intended for permanent occupation.

In our holiday homes and smaller properties, we provide air-conditioning units (with built-in heating for cooler periods of the year) to living rooms and bedrooms. Central heating pipes can be laid in the floor for future connection, if needed.

All doors and windows are double-glazed for comfort. All door and window frames are draught-stripped and have mastic seals.

Extra facilities such as additional water storage are provided as required.

We give you an extensive range of tiles, wood colours, kitchen units and work surfaces to choose from. If you prefer another choice, you only have to pay any difference in cost.

As part of our commitment to good service, we supply you with a “house book”, giving you details of equipment fitted, and names and telephone numbers for us and local suppliers so you can always get service and spares after the guarantee period.
