...innovative holiday proposal
A "refuge" nestled on the mountainside with splendid vistas to Arhanes and Mt. Yuhtas
In 1890, it was an old Cretan mansion. In 2000, it was fully refurbished and transformed into a place of absolute relaxation and rest. Carried out with respect and the intention to maintain the traditional style, renovation work preserved the stone-walls intact, at the same time reshaping all rooms and common areas with old construction material, including rocks and wood supplied from the surrounding natural environment.
The outcome of the refurbishing efforts will satisfy even the most discerning guests: six exclusive rooms decorated in the old Ottoman "oda" style, distinguished by traditional architecture and unpretentious luxury, in harmony with the space and the history of the mansion.
Accommodation is beyond comfortable. The rooms are appointed with a wide range of modern amenities, including kitchenette with oven, air condition, Satellite TV, radio, fridge, safe and hair dryer.
Villa Arhanes' innovative holiday proposal is not exhausted in the architecture and decoration of its areas, it also includes an array of simple, tasty and healthy meals.
The breakfast features organic local products, while the restaurant serves delicious Cretan specialties.
The sea is not very near, but the hotel's swimming pool cum hydro-massage offers guests a cool experience in its waters while taking in magnificent views of imposing Mt. Yuhtas.
Villa Arhanes provides guests with a unique opportunity to come in contact with tradition, nature and the local people, to enjoy palatable delicacies exclusively created with pure ecological products.
Villa Arhanes is distinguished for its simplicity and traditional ambience; it is an ideal year-round destination for soul-searching and relaxation away from the daily "hassle and bustle".
