Arolithos is a unique traditional private Cretan village. It is built on the slope of a mountain, in the wild landscape of Crete. The village is a popular sightseeing in Crete. It creates memories of past times to the older people, while it shows to younger guests the simplicity and the beauty of the past.
Arolithos is a family run business. Our aim is to resent the Cretan tradition, the ethics and customs of the region, the architecture and the values of Cretan people. Arolithos is a hotel that represents a Cretan village with its various aspects, such as the workshops of Cretan arts, the shops, the hotel, the tavern, the restaurant, the Folklore museum, the church, the traditional oven, the cafeteria and the cafe. Crossing the narrow streets, our visitors will have the chance to see the genuine
Traditional weaving on looms and the handmade embroidering. At the restaurant we organize the popular Cretan nights, a show with folklore dances and music from all over Greece. At the weekends are organized several social events marriages, baptisms which are related to local people who celebrate for a special occasion. At our restaurant we also host receptions of special groups incentives.

The hotel is open all year round. the folklore museum is a cultural collection of great interest because of the variety of the exhibits and their close relations to the civilization of Crete.
