Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Angelos House for 12 days and found it to be a really well equipped, comfortable, and relaxing place to stay. This house really does have a lot of feature that ensure a happy stay for a family. The people in the village are very friendly and there are some great places to eat just down the road in Episkopi. The location is very good for travelling around the North West coast and has easy access to the South as well. Nikos is a great host and ensures the Villa is kept clean twice a week, great bbq area on the roof, and the spa area is lovely (spa bath takes an hour to heat up). would thoroughly recommend.

Comfort & Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed 3 nights at this amazing property. While the weather in November was rainy and cool, the house was warm and comfortable. There are many high-end details, much care was involved in the renovation of this historic building. In better weather, would have loved to explore this quaint village more. Great hospitality from the owners. Would definitely recommend.

3 nuits très agréables

  • 5 of 5

Un accueil chaleureux avec un repas typique concocté par la maman du propriétaire, une maison impeccable et très agréable, un petit cadeau au départ qui nous a beaucoup touché...bref...une adresse où il faut aller les yeux fermés.

Merci beaucoup

Archontiki remains a village of neighbours and friends beyond the reach of the Rethymno coast mass tourism and is particularly recommended for guests who appreciate villa vacations for the access they provide to the local culture and the unpolished charm of this old cretan village where locals gather in the squares. Walk to the local tavern for a superb local meal of beautifully presented dishes accompanied by an exceptionally friendly atmosphere or enjoy a regional evening cafe to the local kafenion where the locals gathering.

The beach Episkopi is located really close, 10 minutes by car, in a fertile valley with lowlands. It is a long beach, which is sandy and shallow, like most beaches of Northern Crete. It is very well organised, since there are many hotels, restaurants, taverns, bars and all the amenities one could need. In the western part of the beach you can find places with lifeguards, showers, changing rooms, umbrellas, snack bars, water sports, etc., perfect for children. However, given its large size, you can certainly find a quiet spot, especially in the eastern part. Lastly, at the beginning of the beach on the east side there is an opportunity for naturism.

Then you could visit the neighbouring village of Argiroupolis, with its springs and lush vegetation…a taste of Cretan paradise, breathtaking view for your eyes, calming water sounds from waterfalls for your ears and divine taste for your mouth!

Moreover, Lake Kournas is also located in close proximity. A beautiful freshwater lake in the midst of a mountain backdrop, you can sunbathe around the lake, there are sun beds, or if you prefer, go swimming in the lake, hire a pedalo (it takes about an hour to get all around the lake) or enjoy a meal in one of the plenty restaurants around the lake. Also, a tennis court could be found in Kournas area.

Furthermore, Petres beach is located at the eastern end of the vast beachfront of Episkopi It is named after the imposing Petres Gorge that finishes here. All around there are some facilities such as, restaurants, a diving school, etc. In the main cove of Vythos, which lies north of the others, there are umbrellas and it is less sandy. The rocky seabed is ideal for fishing and snorkelling.
