Photos could not reveal the quality of the outstanding, incredible hotel. The swimming pool was superb, the room was beautiful and breakfast was delicious. The owner’s family was helpful and accommodating. Amazing value for money. We would like to come back every year. The best hotel ever! Don’t miss it!

Wonder-woman is not just a Marvel charterer" The Mrs and I’s recent holiday to Crete was meant to be some serious R&R after a recent bereavement and work pressures. We scanned the internet via AirB&B and came across this delightful villa which is part of a small boutique hotel called Metohi Georgila, owned and run by Areti and her parents along with supporting smiles from her two beautiful and well behaved young daughters. To say we had a few issues getting to the villa would be an understatement, not because it’s hard to find or anything to do with Areti far from it it was all to do with the UK bank systems being down and rental cars …….. I digress. Anyway we eventually arrived and were warmly greeted by Areti and introduced to a fantastically well-presented villa complex. Areti speaks the most amazing English and explained all about the villa, local area and which restaurant’s where best to savour. The Villa is well proportioned and decorated in a modern yet regionally sympathetic style with every possible amenity including little extras of homemade cordial and biscuits. The rooms were immaculately clean and I am a bit of a perfectionist. The rooms all have vaulted ceilings and there was not a cobweb in sight. On our third day Areti even phoned the local vehicle hire shop and managed all the negotiation for us. We hired the bike and had two days of great fun but on the third day we were unfortunately involved in a serious accident, resulting in severe bruising to my chest and my good lady badly breaking two bones in one leg. This is when Areti AKA as Wonder-woman came in to being. She was devastated once she heard the news and within two hours later she was then in the hospital by our side (some 25Km away from the villa). With her came clean clothes, homemade snacks and a selection of toiletries all at her own expense. She then spent many hours comforting and consoling and just holding my Mrs’s hand even when she was asleep.  For the next 8 days Wonder-woman as I will now refer to Areti from now on it, came every day and spent 2/3 hours with us just to make sure we had everything we needed and to help with the language translation in order to make our experience of Greek Healthcare more straightforward. Note…. Please get travel insurance as Greece does not have the NHS, is extremely limited in resources but does have an experienced medical team. We owe many thanks for the warm respect and technical care shown to us.  Back to Wonder-woman, her family and their beautiful home open for you all to share. A heart felt thank you for all your support and your love. You are now a friend for life. We have remained in daily contact since returning to the UK and are planning to return to her fantastic villa with our close family and friends next year to get married and have the party of a life time with her and her gorgeous girls. See you very soon Wonder-woman xxx

Excelent place to relax, far enough from the the caos but close enough to the main attractions. The staff is very friendly. The swimming pool is great and the breakfast delicious. The smell of the different plants all around is great.

A lovely spot just off the main drag. Absolutely perfect pool area and very nice host. Fantastic place to stay if you want a quiet place to hang out. It’s also a short walk to the Maleme tavernas and beach, plus the bus to Chania stops very close by. Highly recommended.

My family (2 adults, 3 children aged 14,12,8) spent a lovely afternoon with Areti at her beautiful place at Metohi Georgili. She taught us how to cook 3 Cretan dishes, including a starter, moussaka and a dessert. Areti involved all of us in the preparation and we look forward to trying to recreate the dishes when we get home! We were given recipes for everything we made. We then had a wonderful lunch, including wine and fresh lemonade, and were invited to swim in the gorgeous swimming pool. I’d highly recommend this experience for anyone interested in cooking! Areti is warm, friendly, patient and incredibly generous and her home is just stunning.
