Agro-Tourism and Eco-Tourism at the Dalabelos Estate, Rethymno, Crete.
We are open all year round
Welcome to the agro-tourism complex of Dalabelos. You'll find us off the crowded tourist trails, but nearer the plowed land, the flying of the seagulls and the vast starry sky.
The Dalabelos is located near the Angeliana village, on a hill overlooking the Cretan Sea, 5 km to the north coast of Crete, at a 23 km distance from the town of Rethymno, 80 km from Chania and 55 km from Heraklion and the Knossos palace at the foot of the legendary Mount Ida.
Our hotel features 10 stone-built modern and fully equipped studios of a total capacity of 30 persons. The buildings merge harmoniously with the surrounding landscape and visitors are seduced by the serene culture of the Cretan countryside.
Under the shade of our restaurant's spacious courtyard, overlooking a superb scenery, you can enjoy traditional Cretan dishes, prepared from products of our farm. If you wish, you can even attend courses on cooking, bread kneading and traditional confectionery.
The farm counts 1000 trees, a vineyard, an orchard of more than a 100 orange, mandarin and other fruit trees, a great number of wild trees, herb bushes and vegetable gardens.
Quite a lot of poultry and peacocks, as well as some goats, two dogs, a donkey and a horse live among the orange and olive trees.
In the central courtyard there is also a small stone amphitheater, and on the first floor above the restaurant there is a spacious hall often used for cultural events or seminars.
The Dalabelos area enjoys a very mild climate, due to the sea breeze coming through the olive groves to cool the hot summer days and to temper the cold winter nights.
We recommend it as an excellent place for hiking and as an ideal resort for creative people who seek inspiration in the peace and harmony of a beautiful environment- both natural and man-made - especially outside high season.
Dalabelos is also fully equipped with facilities for disable persons.
