Total bedrooms=4-5, bathroom/WC=4 The house also has a fine garden with a swimming pool under orange trees. A vine pergola is located just in front of the house and belongs to it. Parking space for two cars is available. Wherever you stand you can enjoy the splendid view, overlooking a broad green valley, the surrounding villages on the foothills, and beyond the peaks of the White Mountains. The house is designed to ensure privacy and peace of mind amid the majestic Cretan scenery. Gonia is a centrally located village on the island of Crete, 10 min. drive from the beaches of the north coast and 30 min. from the superb beaches of the south coast. Rethymno, with its lovely old quarter offers a variety of entertainment for every age and taste. The venetian-ottoman town is a must-see. Walking through the olive groves will bring you to the surrounding villages, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine under the mulberry tree among local friendly people. The rural area is ideal for hiking through gorges, olive groves and vineyards. Within a few hundred meters from the house you'll find a supermarket, pharmacy and a traditional tavern, where you can enjoy various dishes of the famous Cretan cuisine, cooked with fresh, locally produced ingredients.

The house is very beautiful, quiet and very clean. The sight over the mountains from the terrace is stunning. For a family of 5, everybody has his own room and bathroom. The garden pool is very relaxing. The pool is surrounded by fruit trees and vine with delicious grapes. The hosts are genuinely kind and ready to give the best ideas for hikes and visits to avoid crowded places. We discovered an authentic Crete and spent a wonderful holiday.

We came back this year after an exceptional experience last year. We spent some days at the end of July. The house is very well connected to the main sightseeings of the island and to the most beautiful beaches. Easy access from airport too. The hosts are very hospitable and approachable, always ready to advise you on the best places to visit, including restaurants. Found peace and relaxation in this not-so-normal summer. I strongly recommend it, we will come back for sure!

This place has everything you could possibly ask for! The accommodation is a spacious, yet cosy, house with tasteful decoration. It is located in a peaceful location, from where you can easily access Rethymno, and the amazing beaches nearby. I also really enjoyed the garden and its swimming pool. All in all, the amenities available make it ideal both for families and solo travellers. Lastly, the hosts have been extremely hospitable, and they made me feel at home, offering remarkable info on Cretan hidden gems and cuisine. Don't miss it!

The place was magical. An incredible house in a small village, with very nice traditional decoration and luxury features included. The swimming pool was a great place to relax and enjoy some drinks. The hosts were amazing and very hospitable with a lot of knowledge on the history of the area which was really interesting to hear. Can't recommend it enough, and will most certainly return!

Wir haben zu 8 Personen die Herbstferien in dem liebevoll restaurierten kretischen Haus in Gonia verbracht und uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Genug Platz für alle im Haus, auf der Terrasse und im Garten. Alles sehr sauber und gut gepflegt. Kostas und Fotini sprechen sehr gut deutsch, haben uns herzlich willkommen geheißen und standen immer für Fragen und gute Tipps für wundervolle Strände, Ausflüge und gute Restaurants zur Verfügung. Die Lage in Gonia eignet sich hervorragend, um von dort Ausflüge nach Rethymnon, Chania, Knossos, die Samaria-Schlucht etc zu unternehmen. Auch zu einem herrlichen Strand sind es mit dem Auto nur 15 Minuten. Für uns war es ein erholsamer und erlebnisreicher Urlaub.

Maison très agréable , une terrasse pour les repas , un jardin fermé avec piscine agrémenté de jolis arbres, oranger , grenadier , des relax , un grand barbecue ... et puis un hôte exceptionnellement accueillant , malgré notre arrivée tardive , une table pleine de friandises nous attendait ainsi que le fameux raki . En bref une excellente semaine dans une maison tout confort, au calme et bien située pour visiter une très belle ile .
