Eco Villa-Gonia with garden and pool 8km from Rethymno (town)

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
Villa with 3 bedrooms (6+1)

During the designing and the construction of the villa we applied principles of ecological design to minimise the energy needs of the house and ensuring comfort in passive ways. In this way we have constructed a house which satisfies our guests’ demands and everyday needs by providing: The incorporation of the building in its surroundings. The thermic comfort bath in summer and in winter. The cooling of the villa (with out air-conditioning), heating and hot water. And finally, excellent conditions of natural of artificial lighting.The villa is 186 m²., built with an indoor lift. Upstairs there are three bedrooms with double and single beds, bathrooms and spacious verandas with a view of endless greenery that extends to the peaks of Lefka Ori.(White Mountains). On the ground floor there is a spacious sitting room with satellite TV, a fireplace and a comfortable sofa.Well-organized kitchen, combined with a cosy dining room. All bedrooms are equipped with Coco-mat mattresses and linen.

Location - Excursions: Katikia Gonia is located just 8km from Rethymno, in the village of Gonia. The Green landscape surrounds the house and the view towards the mountains of southern and western Crete is superb. The surroundings are perfect for hiking in gorges of wild beauty, green paths and along charming streams. The fertile olive groves and vineyards provide a great track for your running, your cycling and your short hikes. In the surrounding area, there are hospitable small villages where you will be able to taste the famous Cretan hospitality of the friendly people of this place. A cup of coffee under a mulberry tree together with the people of the village, or reading your book will be images return to you after your holidays. The northern beaches are just a fifteen-minute drive away, and the exotic southern beaches are a thirty-minute drive, so guests are spoilt for choice!

Owners traditional Taverna: At our traditional taverna, just a few metres from the villa, you will have the chance to taste the original traditional Cretan cuisine in the way that only ‘our mother’ knows how to cook.

A fantastic place for relaxing ...

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here before and liked it so much that we came back for our honeymoon! It's immaculately clean and beautifully designed.

A lovely swimming pool for cooling down from the welcome heat. A short walk to gather provisions. Everything that you need is here - you just supply the food and drink and relax ...

We can't recommend it highly enough! And we will be back

Fantastic villa - very nice and quite

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this villa. Everything was perfect. The house is of very high quality and has everything you need. The location is in a very quite and small town - perfect when you relax but also not too far from nice restaurants, taverns, etc. in the area. You have a very nice view from the roof terrace of the surrounding area. I can only recommend this villa to everyone who wants to have a fantastic time with family or friends on Crete.

A fantastic villa with perfect hosts to match

  • 5 of 5

Firstly this is my first review. I felt compelled to write something as I read many reviews prior to going and thought to myself, really? could it be that good? In short yes it was.

I'll start with the accommodation - Absolutely first class! Nothing would look out of place in a 5*+ hotel. The overall finish and decor are brilliant. Although we were quite nervous about my son breaking anything, which fortunately he did not. When we arrived the fridge was stocked with essentials, there was washing up liquid, washing powder and anything else that we could have wanted. The villa is very spacious having three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen/diner, utility room, large open plan sitting room with a dining area. There is also a balcony off every bedroom which was a lovely feature.

Outside the swimming pool was lovely our daughter spent most of her time in there and it was very clean. The garden is also well stocked with fruit tress.

In the village there is a mini market, petrol station and the owners also own the local tavern. The village is easy to find and is located centrally, we managed to drive some 500-600km with ease.

The owners Marianna & Nikos were amazing hosts. They were not intrusive, but were always on hand if there was a problem. We ate at their tavern and the food was some of the best we had all week. They were so generous and kind. We arrived as guests and left as friends.

The only negative was the fact we had to come home.

I would highly recommend this villa for anybody.

Perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very wonderfull holiday at Eco Villa! The villa IS as beautiful as the foto's suggested. We could not find any flaws to the villa. We stayed with three adults and two small children, and all had an equal fun holiday. Marianne and her family are really nice and make you feel at home. Their taverna is within walking distance (very convenient with small children!) and very nice indeed! We hope to go back someday!
