Sitting in the Dikti Mountains in the Pelekano Forest, this quiet mountain retreat is perfect for getting close to nature in comfort.

The Pezoulia Mountain Cottages are built of traditional materials - it is as though they are hewn out of the mountain side itself. Rough stones and thick wood, thick walls and solid foundations. These impressive mountain dwellings are complete with the character of Crete.

These mountains and forest tracks are great for trekking, walking, climbing and bird watching. The vegetation is a mix of  oaks, maples and plane trees, with the principal tree being pine pinus brutia. Set in the village of Selekano just 30 km from Ierapetra, Lasithi.
