Activities Hiking


21 kms away from Rethymnon, at the beautiful traditional village of Argyroupoli, renowned for its springs and its waterfalls, the charming houses Arcus invite you to share real moments of relaxation and pleasure in an environment of total calmness. The Deliyannaki family will welcome you with unique warmth.

This family property that dates back to the 15th century has been termed “a scheduled archaeological monument” and has been revamped according to ecologic principles (a photovoltaic system and ecologic colors). The beams, the domes and the arches tarnish the villas with the unique atmosphere of another era. 

A big green, in full blossom and well-landscaped garden with some shady parts is at your disposal. At the center, there is a swimming pool with sun beds and sun umbrellas where you can spend time with your family or friends. 

A barbecue, a traditional oven and a pergola that has been designed as a traditional Greek coffee-house are at your disposal. You can taste a wide range of cold Cretan dishes and relax at any time of the day. 

In the morning, you can choose between three different Cretan menus for breakfast, salty or sweet, made with organic and local produce.

Loic P. / France / September, 2022
Un séjour très agréable. La suite Kidana est très spacieuse, très calme et bien aménagée. L'accueil est charmant. Le petit déjeuner, servi en chambre, est complet et composé de bons produits. La piscine est particulièrement agréable au milieu d'un beau jardin.

Wolfgang S. / Germany / October, 2021
Great place to relax in an awesome environment. Are all’s well renovated old Venetian stone house of the 14/15th century. It is located in the old mountain village Argyroupolis (Ancient Lappa) which is 15min near the seaside and 30min to Rethimno by car. Good stay for hiking tours in the area or drive 30/60min to sights like e.g. Prevelli, Imbros, etc. Good service by Elenni and Janis which are nice hosts.

To see / To do

Walk around and explore marked trails, accompanied by the owners, qualified guides or on your own, starting from your place of stay or within 10 km.

The springs and the waterfalls that are located at one edge of the village are of great interest and attract many tourists during the summer.
This place is uniquely enchanting. In this calm environment, you will be rejuvenated and you will also find many taverns with tasty Cretan food.

Take a stroll at the old port and the stone-pebbled streets of the old city of Rethymnon.
Visit the nearby villages that are intensely picturesque and authentic and swim in the clean water of the Episkopi beaches, approximately 7 kms from Rethymnon and Georgioupoli and 11 kms from Chania.
The most beautiful beaches are located on the south part of the prefecture and these are the Plakia, Rodakino and Preveli beaches.
Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy the view from the Preveli Monastery.

It is worth visiting the famous Arcadi monastery and the Margharites village that has a center of traditional pottery.

Many of the paths on the surrounding hills are perfect for trekking and you should definitely visit the Kourna Lake, the only natural lake on the island.
