Some years ago the family decided to purchase a very old and run down building in the village where they live, quite close to their own home. After an archaeological survey was made on the building, it was found that it dated back to the 15th century Venetian period and is now registered as a historical building. Many parts of the building very clearly show distinct Venetian features similar to those found today in the Fortezza castle in Rethymno.
After a period of five very long years of careful renovation work, the results of this was well worth every effort made and this magnificent building was finally brought back to its original features ad thus the Casa dell’Aristea a traditional guesthouse was created.
