Please note not suitable for people with walking difficulties or children

Please note due to the many original design features, and the care taken to retain the original character of the properties during restoration, the Traditional Homes of Crete are not suitable for those with mobility/balance issues or for children. Care should be taken when on roof terraces/balconies/mezanine floors and and staircases, as some properties have open staircases and elevated floors. Some roof terraces and balconies have low protective walls or railings with large gaps. These features have been kept to allow guests a true experience of the way Cretan people lived over a hundred years ago.
