Living in a place like Lithari is unique. I love to stay next to the fireplace in the evening and listen to the fire while reading one of my favourites books. The place has a unique essense that only those who stay can understand. However the house is magnificent also in the morning. For me waking up early in the morning is something ideal when staying in Lithari.
First thing in the morning when i wake up I prepare my coffee. I love the smell of French coffee in the morning. I will then take my cup and head to the balcony. I enjoy to stay in the balcony listening to sound of birds. I will stay there for at least 15 minutes to enjoy the silence.
A morning run or hike is what follows. I will head down to the centre of the village and i will run towards the mountains. While running you always meet shepards and farmers in the village. What I enjoy most is that time seems to stop in our village. People are more relaxed when working next to nature.
After I finish my run I will come back for a hot bath and I prepare breakfast. Using traditional cretan products, cheese, eggs tomatoes and fresh bread I make my first meal of the day. I like to eat on the balcony and relax from the morning run.
Finally i grab my book and i get out of the house. On the right side of the door there is a rock which is perfect to sit and enjoy your reading. The sun now is in front of me and my body enjoys the calmness as I go deep reading my book..
Enjoy your Stay
