Best place on Crete! Beautiful Traditional houses! Amazing view on the sea and mountains. Delicious homemade Cretan food, fresh fish and Lamb on the fire. The owner Markos is a great host and tourgide. We did a boattrip and had some free hours at a private cove. Amazing!!!! Kids loved the pool and the off-road rides in Markos' jeep. I... More

Beautiful mountain village, takes you back in time... Thalori/Markos has done an excellent job restoring an almost abandoned village to a now gorgeous traditional Cretan village. All individual apartments have been lovingly restored (all are different) and are very charming, the grounds are equally as beautiful. The mountain top setting and views are breathtaking. You can takes a walk through... More

The surroundings are amazing. For a short stay is perfect. The apartments are a wonderfull combination of old with new. The pool is beautiful and the view dreamy, but the water was so, so cold. We stayed for 10 day there. It was to long. The beaches are so far away, at least 30 min by car. We were with... More

Beautiful idea and well-executed. The rooms are charming stone houses; ours had a bedroom upstairs and a balcony with amazing views of the mountains and the sea. Clean and thoughtfully designed. The town is far from everything—the nearest supermarket is a steep 20-25 minute drive down the mountain. So it's an ideal place to relax and sit by the pool... More

Beautiful place , great food, great views ...the owner had a great vision to make it true. The only thing I didn't like was the poor service in the restaurant ,very slow, and the prices are a little bit high. Beautiful place for every season !!!

You can believe the photo's. It is really very nice. Hotel rooms are individual houses in the village which are fully restored. The comfort of bed and shower were not maximal in our room. It was an extraordinary experience. The views are spectacular. The village is half an hour drive distance of other civilization. The sandy dirt road to the... More
