Next to the house is this traditional working outdoor oven. It is rather large for guests to use, so the owners have provided a more modern wood/charcoal barbeque nearby.

View of the gallery bedroom, features two double beds. Smaller single bed underneath. Think of this as a very large bunk-bed arrangement!

<<<

Gallery top bedroom area is accessed with these wooden steps. They are steep, so probably not ideal for very young children, who would be better suited to the smalled lower bed you see here.

Master bedroom at the top of the house, features grand hand-made bed from solid oak.

The private balcony from the master bedroom has this spectacular view of Gavalochory village and the mountains.
