The People of Paleochora

There was a time when the only people who lived in Paleochora were Greek. When Paleochora used to be a small village with fishermen and – a few – farmers. Most of the fishermen originated from Gavdos island, located just opposite of Paleochora. The locals were hard working people, trying to survive from the First and the Second World War. Many of these people moved to Paleochora from other villages of the Selino area, in search of a better life.

The summer of 2020 at Aris hotel

This year, due to the COVID-19 virus that is spreading over the planet, we all have to make changes in our daily, monthly and even yearly routines. It has affected most of the aspects of our lives. By now we have all had a chance to freshen up our knowledge regarding the importance of personal hygiene and keeping a safe distance to one another in all kinds of environments. In Greece, especially on the island of Crete, there has been a very limited and highly controlled spread of the pandemic so far, especially compared to the rest of Europe. We at Aris Hotel are taking all precautions available to keep it that way and because of this – and because of recent extensive renovations of our premises – our hotel is a superb choice for anyone who wishes to visit our beautiful village this summer.
