We got a transfer from the airport which was easy and quick. The food was delicious and the general ambiance was so relaxing. I would love to go back! Thanks again for... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here recently. It is about a 15 minute drive outside the town centre and was a little bit difficult to find st first as we arrived when it was dark. Aside from that minor complication, we were very happy with our choice. Bruno is the owner of the riad and is a great character who... More

Spending time with family is always special, so finding a fantastic place to travel away together for New Year has made this New Year very special. From the moment we were met at the airport to the heartfelt send off by Bruno & the staff, we were treated to a wonderful time. The setting is both rural and peaceful with... More

Many thanks to Bruno for his wonderful hospitality. We enjoyed his beautiful home/riad. Always charming, attentive and welcoming to his guests. We enjoyed the two pools, views, vistas, free/fast wifi, and the conversations we had with Bruno.

There is always the apprehension that when you return for a second Christmas to a location that you REALLY liked, that it may turn out that your memory has exaggerated the delights. Fortunately not: Bruno - the same welcoming and attentive host, the same amazing rooms, the improved facilities - the pool is now heated, however a different chef but... More

After a hectic few months at work, it was wonderful to unwind with Bruno and his staff at Gonatouki. It's a beautiful villa with lots of space, well kept and two great pools. The food was lovely too - thank you all!

I've been there with a group of friends, and we felt like home, with so many activities to do around (horse riding, quad, golf, visits etc.), the people there can advise very nice adresses.

The most memorable feature of Villa Gonatouki is certainly the impressive size of the villa with its many different communal rooms and places to relax. Moreover a 23 m long pool offers exceptionally good options for swimming. Food is served whenever and wherever wanted in or around the house. During our stay Bruno, the acclaimed host and owner, was on... More
