The Old Kafenion is located in a traditional Cretan house built in 1850. It offers 3 luxurious rooms. The character and the decorative elements of time are preserved. Combined with the tight materials and bright colors, a warm elegant atmosphere is created. Each morning you are invited to a delicious breakfast. Located at the foot of the Psiloritis and only 6 km from the beach this is the perfect base for trips combined with a relaxing beach holiday.

We stayed in the lovely village of Lagolio in mid-June 2016 at around E100 per night per room (2 pax). It is very close to many of the archaeological sites and a convenient spot from which to explore the beaches in the Matala area. Caroline and Eddy are very kind and hospitable and have built a delightful home with a pleasant pool in the middle of the village. The room we had was a little dark for lack of windows (Cretan "cave" homes are often like this) but was very cool, mostly in a lovely grey screed texture, spotlessly clean and beautifully air-conditioned. The breakfasts were adequate and sufficient; all the guests (at the time we were there two other Belgian couples) eat together. Perhaps a little more variety in the food could have been introduced from one day to the next, but this is just a small quibble. We were grateful for the early coffee and rolls which we had on our last day, much earlier than the usual breakfast. All in all a very good choice, if a little conservative, with really kind hosts. Thanks for making our stay so pleasant and memorable! Brian & Roger

If you are looking for a beautiful oasis to pass your holiday, great hospitality, a cosy bedroom and an ideal base for exploring southern Crete, The old Kaphenion is the place to be. Carlyn and Edwardakis, your hosts with Belgian roots are fully integrated in the local community and therefore can provide you with the best tips for trips, lunch and dining places in the neigbourhood and other places to see or be. Moreover Edwardakis serves every day a lovely breakfast and he and Carlyn love to entertain you with the local history and stories. You absolutely need a car to get around and also this can be taken care of by your hosts. We spend a splendid Holiday in Lagolio and will certainly be back for a next stay and maybe participate with Edwardakis to a local running event.

Enchanting stay in the Old Kafenion, a beautifully renovated house with respect for the original features. Lagolio is a quite, non-touristic village at about 7 km from the coast. Excellent location for exploring the area. Every morning we enjoyed a gourmet breakfast with home-made delicacies. Eddy is very generous with useful tips and touristic information and Caroline makes your stay as comfortable as possible. Caroline and Eddy you are fantastic hosts ! We'll keep your address in mind!
