Kouriton House

Boutique hotel in Margarites

Bunches of dried herbs and flowers dangling from the wood-beamed ceiling welcome you to this gem on the northern outskirts of Margarites in Tzanakiana. The beautifully restored stone-built manor was built in 1750 and now offers seven rooms, each with a kitchenette.

Owner Anastasia Friganaki is a wealth of local knowledge and demonstrates traditional methods of making honey, picking herbs and greens, and cooking Cretan and Minoan cuisine.
