Description

EOT-GNTO registered

The house of the Skalidis family was built in 1900 in the heyday of the traditional settlement of Gonia. Following recent restoration work it now fully caters for modern household needs, while its architectural style remains unspoiled.

The stone-built house is constructed on two levels. Through the courtyard you enter the ground floor, with a fully equipped open-plan kitchen, a spacious dining and sitting room with TV and fireplace, a bathroom/WC and two bedrooms, one of which has a double bed and en-suite bathroom/WC. Both bedrooms are airconditioned.

From the veranda of the upper level, you access a large airconditioned room that includes a cosy mezzanine area with two beds, and a separate study. Two sofas in the sitting area can also accommodate two people for sleeping. Another bathroom/WC connects with the same space. From the veranda you also enter another bedroom, with A/C, a double bed and en-suite bathroom/WC.

Total bedrooms=4-5, bathroom/WC=4

The house also has a fine garden with a swimming pool under orange trees. A vine pergola is located just in front of the house and belongs to it. Parking space for two cars is available.

Wherever you stand you can enjoy the splendid view, overlooking a broad green valley, the surrounding villages on the foothills, and beyond the peaks of the White Mountains. The house is designed to ensure privacy and peace of mind amid the majestic Cretan scenery.

Gonia is a centrally located village on the island of Crete, 10 min. drive from the beaches of the north coast and 30 min. from the superb beaches of the south coast. Rethymno, with its lovely old quarter offers a variety of entertainment for every age and taste. The venetian-ottoman town is a must-see.

Walking through the olive groves will bring you to the surrounding villages, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine under the mulberry tree among local friendly people. The rural area is ideal for hiking through gorges, olive groves and vineyards. Within a few hundred meters from the house you'll find a supermarket, pharmacy and a traditional tavern, where you can enjoy various dishes of the famous Cretan cuisine, cooked with fresh, locally produced ingredients.

“Entspannung pur in einem traumhaften Ambiente”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2016

Das Haus ist mit viel Liebe restauriert und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Lage ist angenehm ruhig. Trotz Busanbindung empfehle ich unbedingt einen Mietwagen, um die schönen Strände zu erreichen. Fotini und Konstantin sind aufmerksame Gastgeber, die perfekt deutsch sprechen.

“Super relaxed stay in laid back property”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2016

We have stayed in the house for the second time (never done before - identical holiday destinations) and it was well worth it. The hosts are warm and welcoming, the place is in perfect condition with all conceivable amenities. The pool is well looked after and separated from the house and terrace which is a strong plus with little children as you never have to worry who jumps in next by accident... To us September is a great month to visit Crete, Gonia might not be the hottest spot on the island but if you're seeking quietness, the sea close by (approx. 8 km, easy if you have a car), a tavern you could dine every evening, and if not eating out, a property with large kitchen and space to easily take four parties (as equipped with four separate bathrooms) Oikos1900 is your place. We might even come back a third time...

“Perfect for a relaxing holiday”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2015

This house is full of charm and character, having been beautifully restored. It exceeded all our expectations, being spacious, clean and well equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the shade of the citrus trees in the garden before cooling off in the pool and we also made good use of the barbecue. The house is in a quiet village location with lovely views from the terrace over the surrounding countryside, with the benefits of a local shop, cafe and taverna within walking distance. A car is essential, but it is an easy drive to more grocery shops as well as Rethymno and the north coast beaches. The south coast is about an hour away, with stunning scenery and quiet, pretty beaches. Our lovely hosts gave us a warm welcome, greeting us on our late night arrival with Cretan food and drink, including fresh produce from their garden. Throughout our stay they were available to answer questions and give advice, without being intrusive. They went to a great deal of trouble to ensure that we had an enjoyable and memorable holiday. Overall, we couldn't have asked for more.
