Interaction with guests
ArchonVilla is owned by Manya Kandanoleon and her family. It's an imposing designed building which constructed in 2008 for our family relaxation. It was made carefully by authentic materials such as stone and wood, with respect to the traditional Cretan architecture. In this way the villa remains cool even in the hot summer months. I am looking forward to welcoming you at the villa and I will be at your disposal during your stay. I emphasize on great hospitallity. It makes me really glad to have my visitors happy spending a beautiful time in the Villa and return home really refreshed.
