Host review score

Το ΑΡΧΟΝΤΙΚΟ είναι ένα συγκρότημα παραδοσιακών διαμερισμάτων 4 αστέρων. Αποτελείτε από 4 ευρύχωρα διαμερίσματα με αυτόνομη είσοδο το κάθε ένα και διαθέτει μεγαλο ηλιόλουστο κήπο και αυλή για την άνετη και ασφαλή φιλοξενία των επισκεπτών. Βρίσκεται στο κέντρο του παραδοσιακού οικισμού Αρχανών, στους πρόποδες του ιερού βουνού Γιούχτα. Κτισμένο το 1893, αποτελεί ένα αντιπροσωπευτικό δείγμα της τοπικής αρχιτεκτονικής. Στο πέρασμα των χρόνων, το Αρχοντικό διαδραμάτισε σημαντικό ρόλο στην ιστορία των Αρχανών. Το 1897, κατά την επανάσταση των Κρητικών, χρησίμευσε ως στρατώνας και Διοικητήριο του Τάγματος των Επίλεκτων Κρητών με διοικητή τον φρούραρχο Ιωάννη Νταφώτη. Στις αρχές του 20ου αιώνα κάλυψε τις ανάγκες της κωμόπολης των Αρχανών ως δημοτικό σχολείο επί σειρά ετών. . Έχει χαρακτηρισθεί διατηρητέο σύμφωνα με απόφαση του Κεντρικού Αρχαιολογικού Συμβουλίου Ελλάδος.Όλοι οι χώροι του ΑΡΧΟΝΤΙΚΟΥ είναι διακοσμημένοι με σκαλιστές αντίκες, κεντήματα της εποχής και χειροποίητα έπιπλα. Στην πανέμορφη εσωτερική αυλή που είναι τοποθετημένες πέτρες πελεκισμένες στο χέρι από τους ίδιους τους μάστορες που έχτισαν το σπίτι. Μέσα σε μια πανδαισία χρωμάτων και αρωμάτων.
Η Άννα και ο Μανώλης οι ιδιοκτήτες φροντίζουν οι ίδιοι να είναι ευχάριστη για τους επισκέπτες η διαμονή από την πρώτη στιγμή της άφιξης έως την αναχώρηση
