In a pure and quiet coast of Crete, we have The Old Bus-residence and its Art Studio, next to the sea, overlooking the horizon from sunrise to sunset.
Suitable for travelers who are looking for something magical, who want to connect to themselves and the land, this IS the place!
Away of terrorism you can find peace and clearness of mind.
As there is really nothing around but nature, sea, sky and imposing rocky hills, it really offers a space to simply 'be', watch the stars, be quiet and connect

The Bus is in northern coastline of Crete, just an hour and ten minutes drive from the Heraklion Airport. Once over the mountains the winding road leads you down to secluded beaches, clear waters, stunning views and the welcoming smiles of Dora and Giorgo.

*An accommodation with history*
In the year 2000 we met this old bus, (Mercedes from '60) it was abandoned in a paddock.
We decided to bring it down to this untouched coast.
We pulled the bus along the narrow winding road with a bulldozer which lifts the bus to take the turns, it was an adventure...
It was being done our "Magic Bus" for our dreamland...
We worked a lot to transform it into a home.
For years it was our retreat from the competitive world.
The Old Bus, this land, the sky, the sea and the infinite was our "door" to escape from the "peoplemade" reality...
Now we are here to serve this land, and the Bus for hosting people who are attracted by the power of the Old Bus coast.
Our Bus feels so happy to transport people to magic... "Away with the fairies"...

In this place we live and create in recent years, we manufacture everything alone and we revive what useful the sea brings out. All outdoor furniture is made by driftwoods (woods which found at the beach) and of course they are hand-crafted.
We live here all year long, we learn to exist without the comforts of an organized society, to be as more independent as we can...
We are the only permanent residents in the area.

The bus is a piece of art work, the space is big, clean and bright.
Connected (with internal entrance) is an elevated room - studio, with panoramic view over the sea, which can be used for yoga, meditation, writing etc.
This studio has also its own entrance - exit.

The art studio is an airy and bright room, with glass all around and two large windows for fresh sea air, there are unique artworks there, a table, chairs, a long bench - table to work on and a comfort bed - sofa where you can relax and observe in night the starry sky (there is no electric lighting in the whole area, only the cities lights far far away on the coastline). Also at night you can create a very romantic atmosphere with the "Fairy's lights" that adorn this room.

Up to 4 people can be accommodated in The Old Bus and in the studio. In The Old Bus there is one double and one single bed and in studio there is a bed (200x90cm) that is also used as a sofa. These spaces are intended exclusively for guests.

In the back part of the bus you will find a closet and the cabinet with all the equipment for the kitchen. It's exactly next to the back door from where you exit to be led to the gas hobs for cooking and the sink.
This combination is very functional and gives you the possibility to cook in contact with the nature.
This outdoor kitchen is well designed to be protected from the wind and cold but not to lose the view and the feeling to live outside...

There is seating area in front of the sea (North site), down of the elevated studio.
Seating area and hammocks overlooking the sea, in South site, outdoor of the Bus, near kitchen area.

Next to the outdoor kitchen there is a small outdoor toilet with shower.
There isn't hot water, the sun warms it, but in summer the cool water is refreshing. In winter we boil the water and make shower..

There is no electricity supply network in the area. To cover your needs, we have power supply with solar panels (photovoltaic).

There is Wi-Fi internet, is good enough, but the way of our connection doesn't give us unlimited internet. It means that you must use it economically in MB consumption, not video watching.

We are away from the noise, near the peace of nature.
Without daily oppression, away from competition, you perceive a different reality that cooperate more harmoniously with our existence.
It will be a great pleasure for us to share this life experience with people who looking for the peace of mind, adventure in nature and like to travel to the endless horizon.

Is blessing:
-To live on a peaceful coast, in the middle of nature, and have the opportunity to disconnect from the logic of the world we created and connect to nature...
-To have the possibility to be in 38 minutes to the civilization.
-To have the opportunity to live by the sea on a coast in northern Crete and be away from tourist development
-Safe in your Bus - home,
in an area without electricity supply network, to watch the most bright starry sky, the sunset... "trip to the endless horizon"...

You can find The Old Bus in the map if you write in your search: The Old Bus Anogia 72400.

Neapoli, Anogia, i-Greece

Here, there are no shops and markets, only nature and vastness.

The closest town for your supplies is Neapoli at 17 km, the road from Neapoli to The Old Bus is narrow with turns and it's about 38 minutes driving.
At the last 1,5 - 2 Km some parts of the road are paved with asphalt and some are paved with cement.
About 150m at the end of the road is dirt road.
Usually the people, who staying at the bus, drive this route by simple cars

The place is wild and pure, with clear sea.
The beach has stones and rocks. There is a small bay just below the bus which has very easy access to swimming.
Also a short walk, on the road, has a pebble bay!
And with little climbing you will find a unique bay, for a deserted swimming!
You can find this point in internet map with the name "Anogeia beach 72400"

With great pleasure we will show you this land, walking!!!

A little further of the Bus (5 minutes walking), on the wildest coast, at the east, there is a beautiful gorge.
If you love to walk on rough terrain it is a very interesting route, through the gorge, that reaches out to metochi (small village) Peronides.
There's a legend, from the old people who lived in around area, that the gorge was inhabited by elves.
In the part of the gorge near us, there are two interesting caves, and here you can see some vultures flying in the sky. They have their nests in the mountains around.
You can find this gorge in internet map with the name "Faragi Malliari Anogia 72400"

At the end of the gorge, over imposing rocks, an amazing and powerful seaside viewpoint.
You will find this point in internet map with the name "Timotine beach Anogia 72400"

In 2 km. 26 minutes walking to the east of the Bus there is more wild nature, you can find a church there.
You can find this spot in internet map with the name "Church Agios Nikolaos Anogia 72400"
This part of the coastline is wilder without houses or other buildings, except the old church.
The dirt road stops at the church, but we can walk on paths along the coast and discover the wildest face of Crete's coastline...

The landscape, a canvas of sky and sea...
And The Creator... a Painter, who paints! ...

You can enjoy the sunset in the sea horizon during the summer months, in the ending of spring and beginning of autumn. The sun rises from the sea from late May till mid July.

In autumn the weather usually is calm and you can swim up to November.
For those who enjoy the cool sea they can swim in the winter if it's not so cold. We know this from experience.

If you want to visit tourist places there is Milatos beach to 14 km, 30 minutes.
Between the Old Bus - Milatos beach route, you will find Milatos Cave.
It is a big cave, with a church in it, and has history from the years of Turkish rule
Also, closer, you can find picturesque small metochia (very small villages), Kounali is 8 km, 17 minutes and there is a tavern there. You need to have car for this.

If you like the magic and the mystery, high recommended experience is the walking under the starry sky. We know this land very well, we can walk with you in the night, without lights and introduce you in its magic energy.
Being surrounded by starlight (and without electricity lights around you) is like walking on a road in space...
And if you want to connect with yourself, we can become invisible, and let you travel in infinity...

We taught for ten years drawing, painting and construction to children and adults, have experience of many materials to create artwork with imagination and always connected our creations with dreamy worlds.

We know how to collect food from nature. Always with respect.
