The Arolithos Traditional Village Hotel occupies a cluster of buildings on the mountains outside Heraklion. Built in the late 80's, it has been purposely designed to reproduce an authentic Cretan village and much care has been taken to recreate the atmosphere of times gone by.
Dazzling white houses with pretty turquoise windows host several old-fashioned shops, including a blacksmith. In the bedrooms, modern amenities are cleverly blended with traditional. The local tavern organises Cretan nights with mouth-watering Greek food and folk dances.
Arolithos Hotel is a private property and is owned by the family of Mr. Saloustros.
Arolithos Traditional Cretan Village is situated 12kms outside the city of Heraklion and it represents a Cretan village or the 20th century. In the ''Village'' there is a hotel, a restaurant, a cafe, traditional houses and a folklore museum.
It offers 36 rooms with all the comfort: singles, doubles, triples.
