This was the best place we stayed in Crete! The guesthouse is located in a very beautiful village, surrounded by impressive mountains and lots of olive trees - very calm and quiet place. It's a traditional village with some old houses. The guesthouse rooms are perfectly built with very good materials, which makes a very nice feeling. The rooms are spacious, super clean, have comfortable bed, perfect temperature inside, amazing view from the window and from the terrace just outside of the room. Owned by a local family - very nice hosts, that can also give you advise of what to do around. They also make delicious Greek food! The common area, where the taverna is, is very nice and it's a good place to meet other guests. Highly recommended place to stay, if you look for a village experience, nature, tranquility, excellent food and convenient room. Good hiking options all around the village. Fair prices for accommodation and food - great value for money. We hope to go there again !

A great place with just the mountains and the silence surrounding you. The rooms are clean, comfortable and traditional with a terrace to each one of them. We loved everything with this place and the lovely host couple is always there to provide food, knowledge about the area and company. This place is like food for the soul!

We stayed for 2 nights in May. Tranquil setting between the mountains and the sea. Lovely home cooked food. Alonia gives you a lot of love and doesn’t ask for much in return- it’s incredibly good value for money. Antonis and Anna run a magical little retreat. One of the best places to stay in Crete.

Great place in a great location if you like the outdoors or hiking. Within a couple of hours you get to enjoy stunning views of the Libyan Sea from the South of Crete. The owners are very laid back and friendly, the meals they prepare in the evening are traditional hearty meals that suit the cold temperatures in winter. The water in the shower is always hot. There is no central heating but a wooden stove that needs to be replenished with wood every now and then but it keeps the place very warm. Rooms are simple but very tidy. This is the place to go if you want to enjoy the surroundings...we did three four hour walks in three days, trails were near but quite different. My nine year old daughter was leading our walks and she didn't complain but once. We were told that there are shorter walks but we didn't try them this time. I totally recommend this place.

Alonia is one of the best places to be in southern Chania. There are many hiking trails to explore, starting right from the guest house. The owners, Anna & Antonis, are very friendly & interesting, and Anna's cooking is delicious! Highly recommended!
