experience the serene quietness and the tremendous panoramic view. Under
the hotel stretches the Lagada Valley with the Apposelemis River crossing
through, above the hotel rise the red coloured peaks of the Dikti Mountains.
Birds of prey, like the Griffon Vulture, glide along these peaks.
The estate is surrounded by protected Kermes Oak forest and olive groves
stretching down to the valley. On the estate many protected trees and
flowers can be found, like different types of beautiful orchids.
The country hotel suits its surrounding as it is built with real natural
stones collected from the land it stands on, giving it a robust and
natural look. The hotel has a neo-classic style creating a romantic
atmosphere for long summer nights.
The main building houses the reception and a romantic bar with a large
balcony on witch you can drink your Greek coffee or Rakí. In the main
building you also find the Panorama Restaurant with its large terrace
overlooking the riding place and the valley. The restaurant serves the
Cretan diet which is famous for being healthy and the use of olive oil.
The olive oil is our own produce by the olive grove of the estate.
