Cretan Renaissance

Rated 9.7 in 261 reviews. 4 rooms.

Cretan Renaissance is hosted in a Venetian manor house, characterized by the Ephorate of Byzantium Antiquities and UNESCO as a historical monument to be preserved. Its construction is estimated somewhere within the period of Venetian domination upon Crete. The architectural approach and settlement of the building follow the stylistic principles of that historical era. History has proven an interaction between the two civilizations (Greek-Byzantine and Western-Roman) at that period of time, a conjunction which gave birth to the “Cretan Renaissance”; a great era for Crete where Literature, the Visual Arts and all kinds of Art came in bloom. The spaces of the hotel were renovated under the spirit of those years. The Suites and rooms are themed after the heroines of the most significant literary works of the era of Cretan Renaissance (Aretoúsa, Erophéle, Dolchétta, and Panórea). Decoration follows the aesthetic criteria of this era (16th century). Concurrently, a great emphasis has been given to the luxuries provided by a contemporary accommodation (Hydromassage Bathtub, Cocomat Mattresses and set of Pillows, Air-Conditioning, WIFI, Kitchenette, a 32’ TV and Security-box)
