the stone house on the hill

Hello! Bonjour! Καλημέρα!

Caminada, is the Greek word for chimney.

*

It is the nickname
for the last bit of a small mountain above the village Anydroi,
in the South side of Chania area, near Palaiochora, in Crete.

*

It is the last home
on the top of that small mountain,
among two gorges
and facing
the sea.

    Hello
    I am an old woman who in 1976, stayed in Anidri and regularly visited Bob and Carol who lived for a year in the Caminada. Your pictures are so reminiscent of my own(long since lost) photos from that summer. Good to know it all carries on. Such a beautiful place -I am too scared to revisit as I would hate for it to have changed.

    All the best to you

    • Dear Carolyn,
      Such an amazing message to receive from you. We were profoundly moved by it, by the continuation of love in this place. We never met Bob and Carol but we will ask for them at the village.

      We would love it to welcome you to the village and Caminada again. The place may have changed but not too much. It is still a valuable piece of paradise.

      Thanks so much for reaching out to us. Love & bless.

      Alex & Ben
