Enchanting stay in the Old Kafenion, a beautifully renovated house with respect for the original features. Lagolio is a quite, non-touristic village at about 7 km from the coast. Excellent location for exploring the area. Every morning we enjoyed a gourmet breakfast with home-made delicacies. Eddy is very generous with useful tips and touristic information and Caroline makes your stay... More

A perfect B&B. Beautifully renovated. Great hospitality. Clean and comfortable rooms with the feel of a boutique hotel. Very well cared breakfast. Lovely garden with pool and sunbeds. A spectacular sunset from the roofterrace. Non touristic village, close to the sea. We spend a great week. Enjoying several beaches and villages as well as Lagolio and the Old Kafenion.

Our first holliday in Crete was a very nice experience not only because South Crete is a very beautifull region of this island with friendly people, but also because The Old Kafenion is a really good Bed&Breakfast. An authentic and comfortably restaured house in a small village, 7 km above the coast, with a great view, beautifull rooms, nice swimming... More

The Old Kafenion is set in a tiny village part way up a mountain. The whole place has been sympathetically restored and retains its... More
