House in Crete available in return for a house in Cambridge.
I require a minimum of one bedroom preferably within cycling distance of Cambridge for myself and a friend. I would be prepared to look after pets, including horses.
I am an associate professor with the University of Maryland, I also work term times in the department of biochemistry and will be sharing the accommodation with a musician. Although we need to be in Cambridge during term time, we are flexible outside of term time, so short swaps would also work.
We have a three bed-roomed stone built villa in Crete, situated in half an acre of land. It is situated in a village 15km South West of Chania, in a small village in the foothills of the White Mountains. It offers the quiet life with stunning views of the mountains, hundreds of kilometers of un-spoilt walks and Agia lake, which is a major stopping point for migratory birds. It is a perfect place for writing, holidaying, anyone with an interest in archeology, geology, nature or just relaxing; or using the fast broadband connection, to work from home!!
The village has a tavern and the local town is just 4 km away with supermarkets etc. The Ventian port of Chania is only a twenty minute drive away with all the facilities of a city. Chania airport is a 40 minute drive away (Ryanair fly direct from Stanstead in the summer months); use of a car may also be possible.
