We have just came back from a wonderful vacation in south Crete, much of it thanks to the lovely place we stayed at.
Villa Ostria is most welcoming - comfortable, very nice designed and decorated and very cozy. Wonderful Betty is continently taking care of all the rest to give her guests the best hospitality ever (a treasures welcoming basket, fresh eggs from the farm, her own made fantastic Mille Feuille... etc.).
The farm is located in a beautiful area, spectacular views and very close to more than one lovely beaches.
Altogether, most most recommended!
Our two families (seven people in all) had a magical time at Oikos 1900 on our first (hopefully not last) trip to the island of Crete. The home had more than enough space for all of us and was equipped with everything we needed. I especially loved that the house has character and history while at the same time feeling very comfortable with modern conveniences (AC units in the bedrooms). We felt completely welcomed and well taken care of by our hosts who live right next door and are easily accessible for any questions or needs. The village of Gonia and surrounding area are incredibly charming and peaceful. The location near Rethymno was central enough to allow for trips to most parts of the island without too long of a drive. I am already dreaming of returning to Crete and would definitely stay at Oikos 1900 again!
