The Thalori Traditional Village is a complex of fifteen traditional houses which were restored to reflect the particular style of vernacular architecture which was dominant in the host village of Kapetaniana

The Thalori Traditional Village is a complex of fifteen traditional houses which were restored to reflect the particular style of vernacular architecture which was dominant in the host village of Kapetaniana in the very old days.

Kapetaniana is a small village perched at an altitude of 800 meters on the Asterousia range, west of the Kophinas peak. It commands a magnificent view of the Libyan Sea and combines in harmonious ways the wilderness of the mountain and the serenity and benefits of the sea.

At the center of the complex there is a larger building which in the old days was associated with legends. It now is a common area offering our guests recreation and the opportunity to taste a rich selection of traditional dishes made from fresh, local ingredients that mother earth has been nursing in this area for centuries.

The position of the traditional village of Kapetaniana, at an altitude of 800 meters on the Asterousia hills, against the wide open space which forms the Libyan Sea, sets the conditions for a unique climate. When conditions are proper, clouds race to take interesting formations around the village and dissipate just as fast. Also, the visibility is so perfect that the eye can see very far into the horizon, which has a soothing effect for the body and mind

The heightened sense of beauty which is evident in the traditional village and the services available can keep satisfied even the most demanding guests who need to establish a starting point for their exploration of the island of Crete

In the construction and design of the THALORI traditional village particular emphasis was placed on the selection of the building materials and furnishings. The aim was to create and enhance the harmony among exterior and interior spaces.

The selection and design of furniture was particularly meticulous. The elements of stone and rock, traditional fireplaces, lofts and embroidered carpets create a very warm atmosphere which is both functional and relaxing.
