Everything about this place is simply wonderful. Vasilis is an excellent host, very knowledgeable about things to do in the area and how to get there. He is also an excellent musician. Usually on Thursday evening, he and friends present Cretan music and show the instruments and how they are made and work. And he is serious about his music... More

Dalabelos Estates is a group of beautifully done cottages on a family farm with all the amenties: swimming pool, wifi, and a great restaurant offering traditional cretan specialties. Vassilis and Maria are great hosts. She prepares all the wonderful food and he plays (and sings) the music of Crete, literally, after dinner. Vassilis also knows the area perfectly and offers...

We stayed at Dalabelos for 10 tranquil, sunny days in September. The location and views are beautiful, we loved waking up every morning and taking a swim in a pool overlooking the farm with the sea in the distance. The mini apartment was well equipped and had a lovely balcony. It was cleaned daily and consistently throughout our stay. Our... More

We have just got home having spent our last 5 nights in Crete at this wonderful place. Yes it does have its draw backs like all the steps, it's built on the side of a hill, but it has a lift, and easily managed slopes. We had a cottage with balcony with the most amazing views of the surrounding countryside... More

We spent 3 days at Dalbelos Estate and really enjoyed it. It is the perfect retreat to explore this region. Too much to do around for only 3 days, though. The rooms are spacious and decorated with taste and the view from the balcony and the pool is breathtaking. The food was excellent, we had breakfast 3 times and more... More

If you're interested in experiencing the real Crete - a sum of all good the island has to offer as a whole - then you need to stay with Vassili and Maria at the Dalabelos Estate. It's breathtaking, it's raw, and it is the depiction of Crete on one beautiful private estate. Vassili is a host that will go above... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Agro-Tourism and Eco-Tourism at the Dalabelos Estate, Rethymno, Crete. We are open all year round Welcome to the agro-tourism complex of Dalabelos. You'll find us off the crowded tourist trails, but nearer the plowed land, the flying of the seagulls and the vast starry sky. The Dalabelos is located near the Angeliana village, on a hill overlooking the Cretan Sea, 5 km to the north coast of Crete, at a 23 km distance from the town of Rethymno, 80 km from Chania and 55 km from Heraklion and the Knossos palace at the foot of the legendary Mount Ida. Our hotel features 10 stone-built modern and fully equipped studios of a total capacity of 30 persons. The buildings merge harmoniously with the surrounding landscape and visitors are seduced by the serene culture of the Cretan countryside. Under the shade of our restaurant's spacious courtyard, overlooking a superb scenery, you can enjoy traditional Cretan dishes, prepared from products of our farm. If you wish, you can even attend courses on cooking, bread kneading and traditional confectionery. The farm counts 1000 trees, a vineyard, an orchard of more than a 100 orange, mandarin and other fruit trees, a great number of wild trees, herb bushes and vegetable gardens. Quite a lot of poultry and peacocks, as well as some goats, two dogs, a donkey and a horse live among the orange and olive trees. In the central courtyard there is also a small stone amphitheater, and on the first floor above the restaurant there is a spacious hall often used for cultural events or seminars. The Dalabelos area enjoys a very mild climate, due to the sea breeze coming through the olive groves to cool the hot summer days and to temper the cold winter nights. We recommend it as an excellent place for hiking and as an ideal resort for creative people who seek inspiration in the peace and harmony of a beautiful environment- both natural and man-made - especially outside high season. Dalabelos is also fully equipped with facilities for disable persons. ... more   less
