The traditional ecotourism village "Thalori" is located in Kapetaniana, the highest village of the Asterousia Mountains in southern Crete, overlooking the Cretan Sea.
It was inspired and created by a young couple who, together with a group of 15 people residing in the village and the region, are the soul of the ecotourism village "Thalori". The guesthouse opened its doors in 2007 and it follows a philosophy that supports sustainable development, which is a mild form of tourism.
“Thalori" consists of 20 traditional houses that are an integral part of this hospitable village, preserving their Cretan architecture and combining traditional aesthetics with contemporary comforts. The guesthouse restaurant serves Cretan dishes made from pure local ingredients and cooked with love by village women working in the guesthouse. The raw materials used are mainly produced in the "Thalori" farm at the village and at nearby villages.
Guests can go hiking on marked trails, swim at beautiful local beaches, visit and participate in animal care work at the guesthouse's farm and even milk the sheep and goats to make fresh cheese. They can go mountain biking or horse riding and there are also climbing fields, via ferrata and canyoning routes in the area.
Against the backdrop of the sacred peak of Kofinas and the blue Cretan Sea, experience authentic Cretan life at Thalori, in an ascetic, rough and beautiful landscape, in a corner of the Cretan land with a centuries-old history and unspoiled nature.
