The 4-star traditional apartments lie on a hillside overlooking Archanes & Youhtas sacred mountain. This original Cretan mansion was built in 1890 and was renovated during 2000 and 2015. The foundations of this old house, its stone walls (60-80cm thick), its frame and woodwork have remained intact. We have tried to respect and preserve the architectural arrangement of the apartments and all other spaces using old building materials to obtain all the amenities that are necessary for a comfortable accommodation, attractively restored into just 6 exclusive apartments. It is an alternative proposal of vacation, for people showing sensitivity for nature, relaxation, exercise, nutrition with pure local products, entertainment and communication with the local people, and time for reflection.

Stayed for 2 nights during a recent road trip in Crete. This was very "different" accommodation ( but in a good way!). The apartments are rustic and built on the site of old farm. They are simply furnished but have everything you need for a comfortable stay and there is plenty of room ( ours had 3 bedrooms) so suitable for a group of people. The main bedroom was was accessed using some very steep stairs which would not be suitable for anyone who has difficulty walking and the bathroom is downstairs. Friendly welcome from the staff and the apartments are set around a nice pool. Easy downhill walk to the centre of Archanes which is a foodie heaven.

We went with my family because of a wedding at Archanes. We only stayed for one night and we regret it. The rooms where nice and clean. We found nothing missing from the rooms and it was well organized. The staff was super friendly and I will try to repeat my visit again. The children really enjoyed the pool and the fact that the yard was closed helped to not be afraid of losing any of the kids.

The location is great to explore Knossos and surrounding area of Heraklion. It is away from the busy city. It is a quite oasis of calm. The apartment is simply beautiful. The village of Archanes is easy to access by bus from Heraklion for 1.90€ and the bus will take you to Knossos as well. So all in all a perfect location and a lost beautiful oasis of calm. A real Gem.

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Archanes. We had a two bedroom villa which had plenty of space for two couples and a baby. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was fantastic and set us up for days of exploring the area. We would definitely stay again!

We stayed in Villa Archanes for the duration of our three day stay in Archanes in August. Upon arrival we were greeted with soft drinks and delicious local grapes by our incredibly welcoming host who also provided us with recommendations on which local restaurants to visit. We made note of the recommendations and were incredibly glad that we did (Zen of Crete was a particular highlight). We were shown to our apartment which had a lovely view of the mountains and some complementary Raki. The apartment was spotless, spacious and had incredibly comfy beds! Before venturing out to eat, we made use of the seating area outside which overlooks the stunning pool and the beautiful plants. Of all the accommodation we stayed in during our two-week trip around Crete, this was the most memorable and I would definitely stay again.

Had an amazing stay at the Villa! The host is very friendly and always happy to help! It's a peaceful and quiet location that has all the amenities you would need. The pool is a major plus for this place! The bed was so comfortable that my boyfriend even said he had one of his best sleeps here! Overall 10 out of 10 and will definitely stay at Villa Archanes again (even if it's just for a good sleep!)

Open hearted hospitality, big breakfasts, in a beautiful little town. Excellent local restaurants in the nearby town square where you can view how a community can live in harmony. Highly recommend. Leftidis was a gracious host with immaculate English.

I stayed in Villa Archanes for 4 days and I had a great time! The villa is very nice with a small swimming pool in the yard (see photos)! The owner (Vassilis) and the staff (Eleni) have been very nice, friendly and helpful throughout my stay! The apartment was very nice with all the necessary amenities! Archanes is a very nice and alive village, and at a very good location: away from the city of Heraklion, but close enough to be there in 10-15 mins drive, close to the archaelogical place of Knossos, and on the mountains. It feels that you are in an island, it is relaxing and you enjoy the Cretan hospitality! I will definitely visit again and I will stay at Villa Archanes again!
