Arhontiko Suites

Arhontiko is a traditional apartment building situated in the center of the historic village of Archanes, situated 400m high at the foot of Mount Giouktas. Built in 1893, it is a classic example of 19th century inland Cretan architecture at its best. It has been restored with great care with respect to the original architectural elements and has therefore been named as a Protected Traditional Building.

Arhontiko features 4 independent suites of 70m2 each, consisting of two levels with an interior staircase. They are fully-equipped and can accommodate 2-4 persons comfortably. Each has a fireplace in the spacious sitting room and a vintage brass bed in the bedroom. The interiors are all fitted with antiques, hand-made furniture and Cretan handiworks. The enclosed courtyard is decorated with stones that were hand-carved by the very stonemasons who erected the mansion.
