Very nice. Lots of space indoors and outdoors. Well equipped kitchen where we some days cooked our own food. Very helpful guy who helped with all we needed. Like arranging the fireplace so when we came home all we had to do was to set fire to it. Or suggesting where we could eat in the Village. We were there...

We were there in early October and loved it. The room was very comfortable and simply but elegantly furnished. It's very quiet and about about a ten minute walk to the square where there is a good choice of restaurants. Vasilis takes great care about the comfort of his guests and is most helpful with his advice. We took the...

This establishment offers very nice units grouped around a central pool. The units are nice and clean and full of character. The property is located high above Archanes, but there are no views, neither from the units nor from the pool area. It's a ten minutes walk to the very lively village. The owner of the place is exceptionally friendly...

Wow! What a lovely 3 days, Archanes is a real authentic Greek village. What a treat staying at Villa Archanes, the rooms are charmingly decorated with an original Cretan theme, giving a homely feel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 4-star traditional apartments lie on a hillside overlooking Archanes & Youhtas sacred mountain. This original Cretan mansion was built in 1890 and was renovated during 2000 and 2015. The foundations of this old house, its stone walls (60-80cm thick), its frame and woodwork have remained intact. We have tried to respect and preserve the architectural arrangement of the apartments and all other spaces using old building materials to obtain all the amenities that are necessary for a comfortable accommodation, attractively restored into just 6 exclusive apartments. It is an alternative proposal of vacation, for people showing sensitivity for nature, relaxation, exercise, nutrition with pure local products, entertainment and communication with the local people, and time for reflection. ... more   less
