Seven kilometers away of the beautiful beach of Episkopi you will found Arcus Suites, a whole neighbourhood of old Venetian stone mansions of the 14th and 15th century, located in the heart of Argyroupolis, Lappa in Rethimno. The entire complex of buildings was declared in 2005 by the Ministry of Culture as «Preservable archaeological monument». Since then the mansions and the environment space renovated with respect for the style and architecture and created 5 independent suites. All the suites retain their architectural features and fascinating atmosphere of the Venetian people, their predecessors. Ambitious dome, stone arches, burrstones, axes, arches, stone fireplaces, wooden floors and ceilings, interior gardens, cobblestone courtyards emphasize and highlight the charm.

We (2 adults and 12 year old son) stayed here for 3 nights in August 2019. We discovered Arcus Suites by chance when visiting the village a year before, we looked at it online and decided to have part of our 2 weeks in Crete here. The rest of our holiday was spent in south and north coastal areas but the bit that has really stayed with me is the relaxed and very peaceful feeling that you get when staying at Arcus in Argiroupolis which is away from the coast. A completely different sound and rhythm. The 2 bedroom house on 2 levels was lovely, everything we needed and very well designed, furnished and equipped. (We did no cooking.) We had breakfast personally delivered every morning which was enormous, fantastic, far too much for us, the kittens waited for us to give up. Really nice bathroom and enjoyed having a luxury bath. We slept very well. Our 12 year old son adored the cats and kittens. He also really liked the pool (though smaller than we expected). He didn't make the most of the breakfast as he only eats bread and honey in daytime hours when out of UK. He was 80% happy with the wifi (said it was better upstairs) so it must be amazing and not happy with the choice of TV channels. We didn't really get to know the couple who run Arcus Suites, they are very discreet but they do really know what they are doing. Thank you. I would have liked to see the other houses. The gardens are lovely and extremely well kept. The village of Argiroupolis and the local area is lovely, there is quite a lot to see and do (unless you have a 12 year old). Our son was not interested in the 2,000 yr old plane tree or the ancient tombs and didn't want to go on any walks. We walked down the hill every night to the Lappa Tavern which we really loved on all 3 nights, really relaxed, good standard and very good value. Our son only eats pork souvlaki on Cretan evenings and he was exceptionally happy. We adults very pleased with the food and we really looked forward to going to this tavern, it has quite a lovely vibe. After coming home we discussed the most enjoyable part of our holiday and for different reasons we agreed that it was Arcus Suites. I would come here again and will also look at other houses/lodges in the group which is called Cretan Unique Lodges.

Wow, this small hotel hidden behind the village small houses is just a must when you stay here in this small mountain village. The suite is old fashioned and very large. We found absolute everything we needed and more. Spotless clean! Very nice small pool, we had it for ourselves. We ordered breakfast that was served on our patio. We had a wonderful stay!

Beautiful villas in a quaint small village in the mountain area. Brought back memories of the Lake District in the UK. Staff is very knowledgable about the area and knows the best places to go (and to avoid). If you’re looking for a proper Crete experience without the throngs of yobs from all over- this is it. Very romantic place with a stillness that is ideal for those looking for some time away.

Arcus suite is a really nice place to stay ! A marvelous garden with a swimming pool and a very huge suite with full kitchen and a jacuzzi in the bath room. We loved this place where we stayed for 3 days.

Outstanding accommodation in a picturesque village and a great central place to explore the surrounding region. We had a lovely mini apartment with a private balcony overlooking the gardens. Fully equipped kitchen - fridge freezer, dishwasher, coffee machine, oven & hob, microwave & crockery & cutlery. Lovely spacious lounge area with stairs up to the mezzanine floor and bedroom with good wardrobe space and very comfortable bed. Whole apartment has excellent air conditioning as well. My only slight disappointment was our 'private' balcony was overlooked by the window of the adjoining apartments bathroom which reduced the privacy of half of our balcony and at times when the window was left open we could hear what was happening & said in the bathroom as clear as if we were there inside with them. There may be some sort of privacy 'curtain' inside the bathroom but I just felt we were being watched / seen when someone was inside the bathroom. Hotel highly values is environmental responsibilities and very proud of its solar panel system. Appeared to be no system to plastic pollution/ recycling. You are asked to consider when you have bedding or towels changed and there is a lovely system for leaving a 'green card' on your bed if you are happy for it to be made up without fresh clean linen. A great read when in the area is The Girl Under the Olive Tree by Leah Fleming as the main story is about that area during the First World War and even mentions surrounding area
