We guarantee an exciting dive in the heart of such a traditional Cretan village, in stone houses with character, which is ideally located for visiting the wonderful region of Lefka Ori. The houses of Patriko Traditional Stone Residence are comfortable, tastefully decorated and furnished in traditional Cretan style.
