We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Thalori. The facilities are top notch with an attentive staff and breath taking views. We have travelled all over western Crete and found this place one of our favorites. Our room was huge, really a small apartment. The decor was beautiful, the design and furnishings were well done and very attractive. The infinity swimming... More

We didn't stay in this hotel, just visited the restaurant. You're up in the mountains and with a gergeous view on the mountains and sea. I got an extremely relaxed feeling when I was there, it was so peaceful. (mind you it was high season in august) The service was very good and really friendly, and they have a beautiful... More

My wife, son and step daughter recently visited Thalori. We had a fabulous time. It is like going back in time but taking the modern luxuries with you. The houses have been wonderfully restored but with the addition of bathrooms and kitchens, in keeping with the architecture of the buildings but allowing 21st century living. The infinity pool area and... More

Thalori @ Kapetaniana is the best experience for those who want to feel the old and traditional way of Cretan lifestyle. I visit Crete since I am a child. Every summer for the last 38 years. This year I spend 2 days at Thalori and felt like being at home again with my grandparents. The little houses are very well... More

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
