The building that now forms Alcanea dates from the Venetian period and was the office of the Greek revolutionary and statesman, Eleftherios Venizelos, for 24 years.
It was fully restored during spring 2011 with great sensitivity to the preservation and conservation of the building's architectural heritage.
The enchanting complex of terraces and patios, the well-preserved hand-carved stone facades, the colourful ceramics, the elaborate woodwork and decorative elements all maintain a perfect balance between tradition and modern comforts.
