Guest house
At a unique mountainous landscape of Crete, the traditional houses Arodamos offer to the guests the opportunity to explore and enjoy nature, relax by the pool and participate in agricultural activities, such as the traditional threshing with the donkey, collecting eggs, vegetables and fruits from our organic harvest, milking animals, making cheese and bread, or just enjoy a ride around the plateau with a bicycle. Arodamos consists of six individual houses, made with respect to the environment, using wood and stone and their energy needs are covered exclusively by renewable energy sources. Arodamos is ideal for families, couples and groups of friends.

Wonderful traditional experience!
We didn't stay overnight as we just took an afternoon adventure to the taverna... it was worth everything and more than you could imagine. The traditional meal was outstanding, as was the warm welcome from Yianni, the owner. A spectacular view of Psiloritis, you truly feel like you are with the gods!

Mieux que le top !!!
Perchés dans les montagnes, les petits chalets en pierre d'Irini et Yanis ont tout pour séduire les voyageurs en quête d'authenticité. Des hôtes d'une gentillesse et d'une hospitalité hors du commun, un cadre fabuleux, une quiétude absolue, ont fait de nos 4 jours passés sur place des moments inoubliables. Nous ne pouvons que recommander cette guesthouse qui restera dans le top de toutes celles que nous avons visitées , et cela tout pays confondus. Merci Irini et Yanis pour ces moments partagés...

The best hospitality experience we had ever had.
Me and my wife spent 5 days in Arodamos and I am lost for words to describe this experience. The place is a family run guesthouse with several villas a pool and a taverna. All of which are exceptional. All the food and wine is being prepared by the family from the products they make on the farm. We ate there (breakfast, lunch and dinner) much more than we have planned as the food was delicious. But above all that the attitude and hospitality of the entire family that runs this place was extraordinary. We want to say a special thank you to Evi for all her tips about Crete and to Minolis for an amazing rock climbing hike and a fun evening filled with great music, a fun conversation and of course some raki. It was also a great to make homemade cheese with Yanis as well as playing with the local donkey and all the other farm animals. The only thing to be aware off (nothing to do with the place but with the satellite internet available in the mountains in Crete) that in this part of Greece in most places the internet connection is rather slow, it will be enough to check your emails and google but it won't allow you to do much else (like skyping or downloading larger files). Thank you all, and we will be definitely coming back and recommending this amazing place to our friends.

How to get there
Once you reach the village of Kroussonas (Κρουσώνας), follow the signs of Arodamos (Αροδαμός). The distance from Heraklion to Kroussonas is 20 kilometers and from Kroussonas to Arodamos 11 kilometers. In total you will need approximately 50 minutes. As a local community we wish to respect nature and not to destroy the natural beauty of the plateau, this is why the last 1,5 kilometer, once you enter the plateau, is a dirt road, accessible to all types of cars.
