In a region protected by the Natura 2000 programme, the traditional residences of the Arodamos welcome you into a warm and friendly environment. The establishment's proximity to nature means that you will have the opportunity to discover the Cretan way of life in this region. You can participate in the activities at the farm, like wheat threshing, weaving, and bread and cheese-making, or go on some beautiful hikes or excursions on a bike or a donkey on the mountain trails. You will be able to discover the St. Irene Monastery, the chasms, the Agia Irini gorges and the Chapel of St. John all nearby.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The ecotourism and agrotourism complex that is the Arodamos is located at the top of a hill at 1,500m of altitude with a view over the plateau and the region of Malevizi. The lodgings are located on the Livadi plateau just under 7 miles from the village of Kroussonas and 19 miles from Heraklion. It is a region with beautiful landscapes and a protected biodiversity. The Psiloritis is one of Europe's 7 geoparks. It isn't easy to reach the lodgings because they are at the end of a rather long dirt road.
