Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Konstantinos met us when we arrived and gave us a warm welcome. The property has been beautifully renovated and is full of character but yet has all the modern conveniences you could wish for. There was an array of nibbles/snacks waiting for us upon arrival and bowls of local fruit left for us to enjoy now and again. Konstantinos has a wealth of information on where to go and what to see throughout not just the local area but the whole island. The village of Gonia is a perfect base whether venturing far or staying close to the villa. Local stores and taverns have all you need within walking distance or a short drive into Rethymno lets you enjoy all the delights of a larger town, plenty of places to eat, shop and party. This was our first time holidaying in Crete and we would definitely return to Oikos 1900.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely,well equipped villa. The views are stunning and we loved eating outside in the shade while enjoying these. We ate mostly at Elpis in the village square and we appreciated the warm welcome and great food there. The hill to the square is a bit of a challenge,but there are other ways to go to avoid this if you want to.
Norman and Dawn were so helpful right from the start and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed so that we could really enjoy our holiday.
