Location description from owner

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”

Reviewed 25 Dec 2012

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”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2011

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
