There is also a bedroom with double bed and a WC / shower. On the first floor, there are 3 double bedrooms, sharing a bathroom with bath. All the bedrooms have their own balcony.

Villa Gonia operates the whole year. It is an ideal place for families with children, friends, honeymooners, who are looking for peace and relaxation in the countryside near the unspoilt Cretan environment and away from noises and crowded places. This villa can comfortably accommodate 7 persons. A car is considered to be essential in order to be able and explore the area and the island of crete.

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!

The Rethymnon Prefecture region

Discover the beautiful prefecture of Rethymno. Rethymno is the main city of the prefecture and one of the most important of Crete. It is a beautiful city divided into the Old Town and the New Town.

The Old part is composed of old buildings and paved narrow alleys. A Venetian fortress is overlooking the town. The area proposes a beautiful sandy beach.

Climate: the climate of Crete is probably the mildest in Europe. The strong northwesterly wind, the meltemi, moderates even the hottest months of July and August. Rainfall is rare during the summer months. Autumn is Crete's mildest season, when temperatures are often higher than in spring. The mountains that run across the island act as a barrier to the weather, often creating different conditions in northern and southern Crete.

Rethymnon

Gonia Village is the next village after Prines area in Rethymnon. One hour by car from Heraklion or Chania and only 15 minutes from the sea or 15 minutes from the bustling big town of Rethymnon with its wide variety of tourist amenities.

Prines area used to be an important place during the Venetian occupation and the church of St. Nicolas dates from the 13th century. All the necessary shops can be found in the village, such as 2 supermarkets, a traditional kafenio and a taverna. The village itself is surrounded by olive trees and is ideal for people who like less crowded places and want to be close to a very rich nature.

"Perfect family holiday"

We are a young family with 3 kids - 6, 8 and 10 years old - and had a wonderful stay at Gonia. The house is newly built, the furniture and design were very tasteful and high quality. The house was always clean and taken care of. We always rent villas for the family in our summer holidays, and this time we were positively surprised. All electronic devices in the house were high-end quality, all kitchen-electronics from Miele, for example. We liked that very much. The pool was perfect, the garden small but big enough. The only little disadvantage was the missing air conditioner. Marianna told us that the villa is somehow ecologically built with special air-circulation. In the nights we opened the windows, it was ok for us. But the really positive thing was the little tavern from Marianna and Pedro, the owner family, 200m away from the villa. The food was perfect, our kids loved it so much. We also loved the owner family who were very guest-friendly and hospitable. Gonia is in the center of Crete and therefore well located. To Rethymno, the most beautiful city beside Chania we had a 10min drive.

"Great hosts & beautiful house"

Thanks Marianna & Nikos for your warm welcome, we felt like being part of your family. Your villa is just amazing, beautiful with all modern equipment, We really enjoy our holidays in Crete, you have been always present & reply to all our questions. It was a real pleasure to eat several times at your taverna where we discover the real traditional cretan food, it was the best place from all the other places we went. The villa is really like the pictures and we haven't been disappointed at all by the villa and the services you provided during our 3 weeks stay. A big THANK YOU for all your hospitality. Karine, Eric, Massimo, Celia, Anne-Laure, Maxime & Valentine

Thank you for your kind words.Maybe we see you again. Friendly, Nikos+Marianna+Petros+Mery
