Dalabelos Estate – Wellness retreat in Crete Greece
A rejuvenating experience in Dalabelos Estate Greece
Located in the middle of Cretan land, Dalabelos estate is a top holistic agrotourism complex in southern Europe (Rethymnon Crete in Greece), designed to provide a unique wellness retreat along with a luxurious experience. Aggeliana village is on a small hill on the northern coast of Crete Greece, around 5km away from famous Cretan beaches and at the foothill of mountain Ida (Psiloritis).
Mountain Ida Crete
The word “Ida” means lush and dense vegetation. Another etymology of the word “Ida” is “sight”, meaning that from the top of the mountain the visitor has full sight of the whole Cretan island. The whole region is ideal for wellness and wellbeing retreat as Ida is full of waters, gorges and caves. The morphology of the land with the hard stones and narrow passages explains why this place was the place that the spiritual human could turn into deity according to ancient Greeks.
Dalabelos Estate is a complex of 10 studios, cottages and luxury apartments, a concept based on the healing properties of the land, the music and the food.
Staying in our wellness resort is not only about accommodation. While you will find yourself comfortable enjoying our cottages, luxury rooms and swimming pool, you will feel invited to participate in Dalabelos Estate concept which is an experience in itself.
Food plays a key role in our resort.
