the visitors must have their mind of the soft furnishings of hand-woven materials dating back some 200 years and general equipment of the house....

Our stay at Eco House was magical. First, the town of Meronas is
lovely - a return to a simpler time and simpler life. Everybody
seemed to know us after a couple days, and the people could not have
been friendlier. Meronas is a good central base for visiting sights
all over Crete from the little villages in the Amari valley to
Rethymno, Iraklio, Chania, Mt. Psiloritis and even the southern
beaches (which we saw from the mountain but didn’t have time to
visit). The house itself is wonderfully restored and appointed and
offers a truly unique layout. There are three bedrooms, three
balconies, a courtyard with 19th Century doors, and interesting
connections and features throughout. Plumbing (2.5 bathrooms) and
heating are all modern and easy - only the best parts of the 19th
Century are preserved.
As others have mentioned, Manolis’s mother did indeed bring over
still-warm breakfast treats and even hot eggplant dish for dinner one
evening when we’d been out all day. She’s a delightful woman full of
smiles and friendly greetings. We wished we spoke Greek so we could
have talked with her and asked her for some recipes.
We wish very much to return and spend weeks rather than days in this
beautiful house and beautiful town.
Thank you for your good words, it s our pleasure to serve.
You have a wonderful family, appreciated and watched the house. we will be glad to come back again
Great place to stay for a Getaway in Crete
The house was perfect for us, and the host Manolis was awesome. He and the rest of the people in the town of Meronas are very welcoming and showed us a great time in Crete.
The house is very well kept and extremely charming. Great courtyard with a brick oven, and two other rooftop outdoor spaces. The house is great for a long stay, and great for groups - or a couple like us that wanted to get away from everything. Manolis and his mother kept bringing us their homemade food which was excellent, and Manolis had great recommendations on things to do in the area.
The house is located in the middle of the Amari Mountain region of Crete. Great views of the landscape, and centered in the region. The roads to the village twist and turn, but once you get there it's worth the drive. The town has two cafes where the locals gather for drinks, and the Taverna doen the street has amazing food!
Overall this was a great experience.
Thank you so much. We did not do anything more, we feel like our own people, it will be our pleasure to see you again !!!
In love with Meronas!
We loved everything about the home, our hosts and the village experience. Manolis and his mother are kind and generous in every way. Meronas Exo House is a gem and more lovely than the pictures can convey. The construction was a labor of love which is felt in every corner of which there are many. A perfect family place or for a group of friends. We will return!
It was a wonderful experience staying at the Meronas Eco House, even better that we expected. We were there for 11 days and really got to experience the beautiful Cretam mountains and wonderful hospitality of Meronas.. MAnoli and his mother were friendly and generous. We wish we could give it ten stars. Bill and Jan
Sehr liebevoll restauriertes Haus mit viel Liebe zum Detail
Sehr nette Vermieter, die uns mit einem vollen Kühlschrank, reichlich Obst und einer Flasche Hauswein begrüßten. Ein toller gutgeschützter Innenhof lädt zum Verweilen ein. Die Innenausstattung ist bestimmt auch bei kühlem Wetter(hatten wir nicht) eine Bereicherung. Der Vermieter hat prima Tipp s für Ausflüge in die Umgebung. Eine Terrasse zum Sonnen, eine zum Frühstücken und eine zum Lesen, was wünscht man sich mehr? Und oben drauf gab es morgens und abends sehr unaufdringlich ein Teller mit kretischer Hausmannskost hingestellt, von der Mutter des Vermieters. Fazit: Auch wenn der Weg zum Meer etwas weit ist unbedingt empfehlenswert!!
