For sale in the hillside village of Embrosneros: This charming old stone house is located just on the edge of the village and is surrounded by trees, shrubs and friendly neighbours. It is, at the moment, just one room with mezzanine platform and kitchen alcove.

Interesting features include one huge arch running across the house, a smaller arch in front of the kitchen chimney and a stone sink but there is always the possibility of many others waiting to be discovered.

Approximate land size 400sqm.

The house will require full renovation including a septic tank, bathroom, kitchen and new roof. Estimated cost for the renovation including the purchase of the property is 120,000 euros plus building permission fees.

Embrosneros is a traditional hillside village famous for its castle, the cheese factory and more recently the fabulous stone amphitheatre which is used by actors and musicians during the summer period. A taverna which serves light meals and snacks all year round is located close-by and kafes and a bakery can be found in the village centre.

Vrisses is the nearest large town which offers the services of a physiotherapist, shops, banks, petrol station and quite importantly a regular bus service to Chania, Rethymno and Heraklion.
