Arolithos

  • The delicious fruits of cactus in arolithos

Arolithos, the traditional Cretan village, is a thematic and multiuse park. Its philosophy is based on the Cretan culture & traditions. Since 1988 the main goal of Arolithos is to gather and maintain the traditional elements of Crete as they used to be the beginning of the 20th century. It looks like a mountainous village with stone made houses and little streets. The main material such as stones and wood with the natural environment with the trees and the plants, give the visitors the chance to travel in time and feel the atmosphere of a village of past times.

In the village our visitors may see the folklore museum, the old houses, the workshops of arts, the markets with cretan products, the coffee shop. In the tavern one can taste dishes of traditional Cretan recipes and also to enjoy local wine. In summer season we organize several music and dancing events in which one can amuse himself and have an unforgettable memory of Greek night.

In Arolithos we also host many people in the traditional hotel with rustic rooms for special interest guests. For their own benefit we have also created a swimming and relaxation area with panoramic view over the valley.

In Arolithos we also organize several interactive workshops related to nutrition and arts. Cretan cuisine workshops, dancing lessons, wedding rolls, bread kneading, komboloi and mosaic are some of the most popular workshops. Visiting the village of Arolithos and participating in an interactive workshop, our guests have an experience of Cretan culture and a great memory of the island of Crete.
