Customer Reviews of Arolithos Traditional Cretan

Property Description

AROLITHOS is the unique traditional private Cretan village. It lies just 11 kilometers away from Heraklion, along the old national road connecting Heraklion with Rethymnon.Built on the slope of a mountain, in the wild Cretan landscape, the village is a feast for the eyes, evoking memories from the past of older generations as for their way of living while revealing the simplicity and beauty of old times to younger generations.AROLITHOS is a family - run business. It was implemented with great passion and love for Cretan tradition. Its goal is to bring Cretan tradition, the customs and habits of the region, the architecture and the values of Cretan people into relief, through a project that will stay alive for a long time to come.AROLITHOS complex could be characterized as a reconstruction of a typical Cretan village including various departments such as: Hotel, Restaurant Tavern, Traditional Cafe, Modern Cafe, Museum of Rural History and Popular Art, Traditional houses, Ceramics, Woven Textile, Old Blacksmith's, Shops with cretan products, Church. In Arolithos, the hotel rooms are arranged in small “neighborhoods”, scattered all over the premises. Each of them has its en suite bathroom, a refrigerator, as well as a TV set and an air conditioning system. Moreover, the rooms used in the winter have a fireplace that could be used on request. The rooms provide basic equipment while being of a traditional style. Most of them have balconies or courtyards, where our guests have the opportunity to enjoy the garden view or the view over the surrounding hills. The reception of the hotel is 24 hours opened from May to September. From October to April it is opened from 8 am to 11 pm. Please inform us about your arrival time.The restaurant of Arolithos is equipped with a spacious dining hall used in the winter, until the weather permits the use of the village square. This hall accommodates 300 persons and it is divided in three tiers. The restaurant mainly operates for gala nights, social events (wedding receptions and christenings), corporate events, formal VIP dinners etc. The above-mentioned hall can also be used for the organization of art exhibitions, as well as for corporate product promotions. During the summer season, such occasions take place at the sprawling village square, whose capacity is 1500 persons. The square is naturally shaded by trees. At the same area lies the church “Analipsi Kiriou” (dedicated to the Assumption of our Lord), which celebrates forty days after Easter. During the said celebration, a fete takes place in the village. For many years now, Arolithos has connected its name with the phrase “traditional Cretan wedding”. Hundreds of couples from the district of Heraklion, as well as from other regions of Crete have had their wedding reception in “Arolithos”. Moreover, their largest majority has exchanged marital vows during a wedding ceremony celebrated in the church of “Analipsi Kiriou”. For those wishing to have such events organized, they should contact the person in charge, so as to discuss the details together and carefully plan the event. On the day of the wedding reception, a colorful party takes place to the sounds of Cretan or Greek music. There is a wide array of wedding receptions depending on the client’s request. Thus, one has the choice of a typical traditional Cretan wedding reception, a wedding reception that includes traditional Cretan cuisine combined with folk music from other regions of Greece, or even sumptuous receptions where traditional Cretan cuisine is served.The conference hall has been designed to serve conferences meetings and seminars of a limited number of participants. Its capacity is up to thirty personsMoreover, there is a reception area for coffee breaks. It is equipped with an overhead projector, a slide projector and a paperboard. Additionally, one has the option of hiring any other audio-visual equipment upon mutual agreement. The room is air-conditioned, with a lightning system equipped with dimmers. Alternatively, the room can be darkened using the window stores. The room can also be used as an art exhibition hall.EVENTS – ACTIVITIES The activities available in Arolithos are related to popular art and nutrition.
