We had a great time here in this restored old village. It is a bit remote in the mountains. We love that. Just a few rooms, a nice pool, great view and refreshing wind in the mountains. You have to drive through the hills. Easy to get in a normal car (we had a Citroen c1). We ate in the... More

Beautiful village built in the traditional Cretan style, this is truly a one of a kind experience. The houses are cosy and comfortable and the fireplace was set up ready to be lit. The staff are friendly and the views magnificent. The only thing we were not 100% happy with was the food at the restaurant which we did not... More

Very warm welcome. We stayed 4 nights, had once breakfast and 4 times dinner. The beautiful house had two terraces - well placed to enjoy the environment. Unfortunately the heavy showerhead had no suspension to shower comfortably. That was the only minus point. We preferred to do the breakfast ourselves because we like the typical German breakfast. For dinner we... More

Thalori is fantastic and great owners! As mentioned by many other reviewers this village is on a mountain. In order to reach the location make sure you have rented a proper car, especially if you are with 4 or 5. We ordered a Golf-like car and got a Fiat punto 60hp which was a disaster. This is a unique location,... More

We had marvellous Cretan hospitality in this beautiful place. I stayed two nights as part of a group tour. On our first night we sat drinking, talking with the owner (Marcos) & listening to him playing his mandola until around 2am; the next afternoon Marcos & his father gave us a long tour of the area, meeting locals (including the...

The highlight of our tour around Crete - this place is magical. Nail-biting drive up the mountain to get there, a traditional village where 14 houses have been beautifully combined to form a resort, we were greeted by roaring fire, meat cooking on spit, mandolin player and the honest warm hospitality of the hosts. If you bring some food with... More

I have just returned from a 15 day stay here. I found the hospitality of everyone in the place to be exceptional. Perhaps if a previous reviewer had spent a little time to find out people's names and attempted a little Greek she would have had a different experience. The two waiters are called Yannis and Costas and often played... More

We went to stay in September. The weather was great, not too hot. The wind blew strongly at times, keeping the temperature down. The new swimming pool added a beautiful touch. The water temperature was closer to 10° than to 20°. It seems a great spot to go walking from. There are three people who speak English. An elderly gentleman... More
