Location of the Old Phoenix

If you want to retreat away from crowds, mass tourism, noise and wish to be in close contact with unspoilt nature this place is for you. Come once and you too are likely to visit us again and again.


What is so special about us?

  • The Old Phoenix can only be reached on foot or by boat. There is no sound of traffic and everything moves at a slow and laid-back pace.
  • The guests come here looking for peace so they are unlikely to be noisy themselves.
  • All our rooms have large balconies overlooking the Libyan sea.
  • Our food is simple, traditional Cretan fare, cooked daily from fresh local ingredients by the family.
  • Despite the quietness there is a whole range of things to do including lazing on the beach, snorkeling in some of the clearest waters in the Mediterranean, easy walks to serious hiking, canoeing and excursions by boat to the neighbouring villages.
