In the centre of the historic, listed village of Archanes, a few kilometers from the Minoan Palace of Knossos, lies the Kalimera Archanes, a cluster of three traditional houses dating back to the early 19th century. Located at the end of a pedestrian street leading to a picturesque, private garden, the original period furniture and decorative elements add to the distinctiveness of the property. Built of stone, wood, and time-honored materials from the Cretan land, the restored houses respect the historical characteristics of the village, aiming to create a home for all who pass through; such is the time-honoured tradition of Cretan hospitality.
The first wines produced in Greece were made in Archanes, and the oldest piece of fabric was discovered here by archaeologists. Known as an ideal base for explorers and travelers keen on discovering the identity of an island with a history that is as rich as its culture, Kalimera Archanes, with excellent cuisine on offer and a maid service provided, is the perfect base to discover Crete whilst feeling at ease on an island that played a major role in the development of Western civilization.
