Superior First Class Traditional Hotel. Just 15km south from Heraklion, in the traditional Cretan village of Archanes
The rooms are actually renovated old houses in one of the time-forgotten neighbourhoods of the village. They are luxuriously appointed, with fine antique furniture, full kitchens and marvellous bedrooms and a fireplace in some. Most of the houses can accommodate up to 3 guests in a master bedroom and a sofa in the living room and some others can accommodate up to 6 in 3 different bedrooms. Expensive carpets, curtains, bedspreads, fine porcelain and crystal items add to the unique and luxurious character of each house, and of course amenities such as satellite TV and air conditioning comes as standard.
The houses are self catering and there is no breakfast or dining facility as such.
A short stroll from the main road takes you to a journey through time via narrow cobbled alleyways and past an old Byzantine chapel. The cluster of houses are surrounded by a tall wall, and entering through a small portico the guests enter the gardens, around which the houses are built. They are 2 storey earth stuccoed stone built 19th century village houses with many of the original features still intact.
The owners will welcome you in the master dining room of their own house and treat you like an old friend.
This is a true gem of a property, traditional, timeless. Cretan hospitality at its best in the most astonishing setting, this is about making the most out of your stay in this fabulous island (10/08 EP)
