Overview

About the property

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.

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

I think everything has already been said about the villa so I will keep it short.

Absolutely lovely villa, incredibly well maintained and spotless.

Thank you to Marianna, Nikos and their children for their generous hospitality. It was a pleasure to meet you all and sample the many dishes at your restaurant just around the corner from the villa.

Beautiful immaculate house - perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay at Villa-Gonia. We wanted to stay somewhere quiet and peaceful so we could relax but also stay in a location where we could access all the places we planned to visit in Crete. Villa-Gonia ticked all those boxes and even more!!

To start, the owners, Marianna and Nikos are the most kind, helpful, generous and friendly people you could ever hope to meet. We were treated like family and we felt so genuinely welcomed and looked after. We loved eating at the fantastic taverna they own down the road, and the food was delicious.

Next, the house is absolutely immaculate and has everything you could possibly need on holiday. The house is spacious and it works well for a small family or a larger family. The pool was beautiful and our children had a great time mucking about in the water.

We hired a car and had planned to travel to lots of different places in Crete. The house is about 15 minutes away from Rethymno - a great old town to explore and it is about an hour and a half from Heraklion airport. We went to some beautiful beaches in the south of Crete and they took about 45 minutes to get to. We loved basing ourselves here and driving around Crete through lovely little villages and through truly amazing landscapes. We saw so many amazing things on our adventure around Crete. And at the end of the day, we returned to our lovely house, where the sky was full of stars and we could rest our tired bodies in absolute peace and quiet.

We loved staying here and I highly recommend it as a great base for your adventure in Crete. Thanks Marianna and Nikos for making our stay so wonderful and memorable. We had a wonderful time in Crete and it has a special place in our hearts.

Much love,

Rachel, David, Xavier and Olivia

A perfect villa for a great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent vacation thanks to this beautiful village house in Gonia, newly built, white, wide, clean, modern, tranquil and Well equipped. The friendly and welcoming owners are also run a charming tavern in the village. The villa is surrounded by olive trees, pomegranate, lemon, raspberry bushes, and figs. An excellent base for trips on the island. Wish we could stay more. Crete at its best.

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.
