O Mikros Kosmos

Sivas, Crete, Greece

This "small world" on the south coast of Crete is a place to feel good, relax and be inspired. The host couple, both interested in many things and cosmopolitan, have created their own little world here - with a balanced mixture of comfort and minimalism. Eleven bungalows are beautifully embedded in the landscape in the middle of an olive grove. The stylish buildings have been designed to create a small pretty agora (market place) while each bungalow offers plenty of privacy.

A saltwater pool, the year-round SPA with sauna and the gardens invite you to relax. When strolling across the property you can admire olive, orange and lemon trees, observe insects and birds, enjoy the view from the hill or draw ever wider circles on the laid out paths. Guests are invited to explore nature while respectfully enjoying it. It is a resort for adults who want to take a break and/or attend exciting seminars with like-minded people.

In the evening you can sit idyllically under the largest and oldest olive tree and, in addition to good Greek wine and beer, you can also order Cretan snacks and salads. In addition to the peace and quiet, the fine beds from the Greek company CocoMat, which works exclusively with natural materials, ensure a particularly restful sleep afterwards. In philosophy, the microcosm is the human image of the divine universe on a small scale - here one feels part of the whole and is very close to the stars.

ArchitectureThe architecture of the bungalows is intended to consciously level the boundaries between inside and outside with sliding doors and house corners made of glass, so that the view of nature and the transition to the outside on the terrace is possible without hindrance. The slightly overhanging roofs offer protection against sun and rain and convey a cozy feeling of space. The design focus was on making the houses look airy and light, with lots of glass and a monochrome color scheme.

FoodA rich breakfast buffet with specialties from the region. Each bungalow has its own coffee maker, kettle and small fridge.

EnvironmentThe required energy is generated with the own photovoltaic system on the parking lot roof. Water is heated with solar collectors. Used water is biologically treated. In the garden there are only plants that can also be found in the surrounding area.
