One could think the road stops in Xora Sfakion but it is definitely worth going to Anopolis for its numerous hikes and activities around. We found Anopoli rooms right after descending from the white mountains. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable with a nice balcony. The hotel/taverna is family owned, Kostas and his family have a deep knowledge about the mountain and its surroundings (trekking, caves, history) and can organise trips. A ton of documentation is also available there. The food we had was always a blast, so fresh, tasty and generous. Most of the type using local produces. Definitely the best food we have eaten in Crete. Could have easily spent a week there and hope to go back someday!
We stayed overnight in Anopoli rooms for the third year! The rooms are very spacious and modern bathroom with hairdryer too! The food is excellent. Try the stuffed courgette flowers, Anthos...absolutely delicious. Lamb with potatoes in the oven is hard to pass by. Traditional wine and raki to finish... Well worth a visit. They also do uplift to the Pachnes mountain which is a real day to remember.
A very nice taverna with rooms run by a family. You get there the real and anthentic ambiance of a Creatn village. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. The food cooked by the mother and the grandmother is delicious, very fresh and really local. Costas , his brother and his sons will do anything for you to make you happy. It is a fanstatic palce for ski touring or hiking in the Lefka Ori mountains.
..... and suddenly I found myself in Anopolis Sfakion! The tavern "Anopolis" appeared in front of me! the smell of the food , cooked by the landlords chewed me and I stopped to ask , if I could eat something and rest! Katsikaki tsigariasto , home-made cheese " mytzithra " made from their lovely grandmother, vegetables from their garden that brought their children at the time, and the smiles of the whole family, made me stay for 5 days instead of 24 hours !! They have rooms, above the tavern, with incredible view, crystal clear, huge rooms and brand new bathrooms !! Smart decoration, fine organization and positive energy !!! They even have service with 4x4 wheels , for the excursions around " Lefka Ori " ! Don't miss it !!!!!
My room was actually a separate small apartment with a kitchen and it was a short 5 minute walk away from the main building and restaurant. Everything was new and clean, a quiet place surrounded by nature. WiFi was exceptionally fast and stable. The host was amazing! He insisted that I give him a call if I needed anything. One night it was raining and he drove me back from the restaurant to the apartment in his car, even though I said it‘s not necessary. I would highly recommend this place! 😀
