Cretan hospitality

Lean back, relax and enjoy our hospitality and the fascinating sea view while experiencing your culinary and wine journeys.

The Greek word filoxenia, consisting of the words φιλώ (filó=like, love) + ξένος (xénos=foreigner) refers to our caring and catering for those visiting our home.

Cretan Cuisine & Cretan hospitality at a glance


Gastronomy is a compound word made up of two authentic, ancient Greek words: γαστήρ (ghastír=stomach) + νόμος (nómos=law, rules).

Gastronomy is, therefore, the art of experiencing quality food, which includes the selection, preparation and servicing of fine dishes.
