We are a team of young talented individuals that aim in providing alternative experiences to the travelers of our island. Our philosophy is to showcase the best Crete has to offer through a series of experiences that underline the true, authentic and original spirit of Crete. We believe that Crete has a soul that is not portrayed in the conventional tourism models. The mentality of our excursions is based on three major axis that highlight Crete as a destination besides the sea and sun.These are Gastronomy, Environment and Culture.

Stratos Villas overlook the opposite hills, which resemble an endless natural rock garden. Trees, bushes and herbs grow among the rocky scenery. The small river, just 100m away from the villas, is inhabited by frogs, turtles and crabs. This peaceful scenery makes our villas the perfect place to relax and revive your mind, body and soul.

Beautiful, cozy apartments created with love and respect to tradition, with all comforts, are awaiting to welcome you in a dreamlike stay. Each apartment has its own traditional name and has a history behind it.
The moment you arrive on the hillside of the country hotel you immediately experience the serene quietness and the tremendous panoramic view. Under the hotel stretches the Lagada Valley with the Apposelemis River crossing through, above the hotel rise the red coloured peaks of the Dikti Mountains. Birds of prey, like the Griffon Vulture, glide along these peaks.
The estate is surrounded by protected Kermes Oak forest and olive groves stretching down to the valley. On the estate many protected trees and flowers can be found, like different types of beautiful orchids.

If lying lazily on the hammocks or on the armchairs reading, makes you bored, if swimming and enjoying the sun on the beach sounds dull, if exploring the sea-bed or fishing is not your style, if you are not interested in using the gym because you want an activity closer to nature, then don’t forget to take your best climbing boots with you.
Outside the apartments there are over 30 big trees, such as pine-trees, carob trees, horse chestnut ficus trees, arocarias, fig-trees e.t.c. During high noon, they provide those who enjoy swinging on their hammocks with their cool shade...
