We spent two nights at this unique hotel/village, which is at the end of a scenic and hair-raising, windy mountain road! The view over the hills to the water is stunning and there are many hiking trails in the area. Our room had probably been someone's village house on the "main" street. There was a bedroom up rather steep stairs,...

We stayed for two nights and wish we had booked for longer. Traditional village houses sympathetically updated into fine holiday accommodation. Simple but delicious food available in the central restaurant. Absolutely breathtaking views, perfect peace and quiet. A hike to mount Kofinas to see the griffon vultures is not to be missed and the beach at Agio Ionassis is amazing...

The restored village of Kato Kapetania in the Astouria ranges is the most picturesque location for a fabulous retreat. Popi and Marcos have created the opportunity for a beautiful experience in this amazing landscape. The villas are clean and comfortable and fabulous. The views are stunning. The hikes are rugged. The sea is fresh and clean. We spent three nights...

We only stayed here for one night as a stop over on our tour of Crete, which was not enough to really appreciate the surrounding areas and beauty of this place. You really are very high up here and the views from Thalori are truly amazing and beautiful. We had driven from Kato Zakros a long drive and this is...

We stayed at Thalori retreat for 6 nights. Leaving this wonderful place, that was also a stage for some of the best hospitality we've ever had, was very hard. Thalori is one of the best setups to spend a relaxing time. Adjacent to Mt. Kofinas (1231 m) and to Agios Ioannis bay, one can enjoy hiking, horse riding, swimming and...

We were a party of four, who split two great rooms for 3 nights. We enjoyed Popi and Marcus' hospitality, the simple but great food and the breathtaking views. The beach is also amazing, and so was our short hike to Mt. Kofinas. Highly recommended!

Inadequate presence of the staff and costumer care, inadequate room installations, very expensive, in the middle of nowhere (no shops, no mini-markets, no nothing), no decent outdoors activities planned. It doesnt worth the trouble ascenting on the mountain. Definitely not visiting again.

We were in Thalori for 3 spectacular nights. Popi and all the staff were friendly, accommodating, pleasant and always smiling. The guest house was very clean tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The views magnificent and allowed some much needed downtime. We highly recommend to anyone looking to meet a more authentic Cretan experience.

We spent 3 nights in Thalori and we enjoyed very much our stay. We were staying in the new room in a little 5 units cottages detached from the main "resort". The view from the terrace was just amazing ! Markos and his wife Popi are great host. When we arrived a young girl Katerina welcomed us. Because the village...
