ARHONTARIKI is a Cretan manor house built in the early 20th Century. It was renovated recently, in an effort to hold on to what is left of the Cretan traditional architectural style. It is constricted with rectangular chiseled stones, it has an interior living space of 240 square meters, and the two floors are connected with an interior wooden stairc.The swimming pool with jacuzzi is located in a well manicured lush garden, providing a comfortable, tranquil, relaxed environment for the guests. Our villa can accommodate up to 8 persons with a large fully equipped kitchen, a play room with gym facilities and a hammam can spoil you. The windows and balconies in each floor give a panoramic view to Kissamou cape and the hills surround the village. It is furnished with aptest and simplicity with Cretan antiques, reflecting the personal taste of its current owner.
Arhontariki takes its name by the special room on a monastery where the monks host their valuable visitors.
We are Fotini and Giannis Xirouchakis and we are delighted to be able to live in this beautiful island CRETE with our two children. Fotini’s family has owned this old house for over 100 years and 14 years ago we made a decision to restore the villa as a rental property.
We wanted the opportunity to be able to meet people from all around the world and thus get to know different cultures and the traditions of many countries.

Arhontariki is a beautiful traditional Greek villa with loads of character. We had a fantastic two week holiday here with our 5 month old, it had everything we needed to make our holiday stress free.
The villa is very clean and well equipped with a fantastic pool and beautiful gardens. Fotini and John made us very welcome and did everything they could to ensure we felt at home and enjoyed our stay.
There are plenty of lovely beaches nearby and a taverna next door that delivered us traditional Cretan food.
I would recommend this villa to families and groups of friends.

We stayed in the villa for one week in August and had a wonderful relaxing time there. The facilities are excellent and the service is wonderful. We felt very spoilt.
The owners, Fotini and John are very friendly and helpful, and provide a spotless accomodation with lots of outdoor equipment.
We also walked to the two nearby tavernas, and returned to the Garten bar restaurant twice. Nearby in Kissamos we also liked the Cellar taverna on the sea front.
We had a relaxing and wonderful holiday in Villa Arhontariki. We want to thank for trustful and excellent service. The location was very good and there were lots of interesting places to visit nearby. House was very beautiful and nice and we especially liked that cleaning of the house was included to the price. In house and yard we had our own space and peace. Yard and swimming pool was also very nice and suitable for little children. Terrace was a nice place for having dinner and if you didn't want to make dinner you could always go to the Taverna next to the house and have a lovely and tasteful dinner there. Lots of good memories and looking forward to visit this house again. Thank you Fotini, John and Nicky!
We have been for a week last August and it was one of the best vacation we have enjoyed from. The house is beautiful and you can feel someone thought about every little detail to make you comfortable. The cleaning lady comes every day! which is a real treat.. The house next door is an excellent tavern so whenever we did not feel like cooking, wonderful food was 1 minute walking away, Falacarna beach which is simple & beautiful is 20 minutes drive and is worth the effort, the terrace of the house when we usually had dinner is beautiful & comfortable and i could go on forever..indeed it was a perfect holiday...
