  Arhontiko in Arhanes Descripion

 ARHONTIKO is 4-star traditional apartment building. It is situated in the centre of Arhanes –Heraklion -Krete, a traditional town built at the foot of the sacred mount Jiouktas.
Built in 1893, it is a fine example of  19th century inland Cretan architecture. It played an important role throughout the recent history of Arhanes. During the Cretan revolt against the Turkish rule, in 1897, it was used as barracks and headquarters of the Regiment of Select Cretans under the command of Ioannis Dafotis. In early 20th century it accommodated the needs of the community of Arhanes for an elementary school for several years.
Arhontiko has been restored with care and respect to its original architectural elements, thus giving a new meaning to ‘traditional’. The CACG [Central Archaeological Council Of Greece has characterized ‘Arhontiko’ as a Protected Traditional Building.
All of ‘Arhontiko’ interiors are fitted with antiques, old embroideries and handmade furniture. The beautiful enclosed yard is decorated with stones that are hand-carved by the very stone-builders that raised the house. Amidst an abundance of flowers and a multitude of colors and scents, the visitors can enjoy their coffee, tsikoudia and many more beverages made from the unique wild herbs gathered from the sacred mountain of Jiouktas or taste a thousand …and one treats prepared with care by the house owners.
