Been there from Rethimno is about 2 hours of driving. A perfect spot created by Antonis with traditional small houses made by stone and fully organized with wc and heat! A small venue is offering breakfast and dinner, All youu need for pure adventure trip around the area. Contact me for hiking tours and suggestions.
The owner is very kind, the rooms are clean and simple, the nature around is wonderful (ask antonis to guide you for a nice walk), the food is wonderful and the prices very resonable.....Very nice weekend there, i will go again!!!!!
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!
