We were looking for a small self-catering property with lots of history and originality that offers the creature comfort of a luxury boutique hotel. Metohi Georgila more than met our expectation! The place is beautifully restored and tastefully furnished. I loved how each room has its own theme and showcases specific antiques. The rooms are spotless and are cleaned daily.
What made our time there truly memorable is Areti and Harris. They treated us like guests of the family and brought us fresh baked treats and harvests of their garden. We enjoyed our time there so much in 2010 that we went back in the summer of 2011. When I told my 5 year old that we were going back to Crete, he asked whether we were going to the hotel where the nice man by the pool had brought him a juice and a plaster when he hurted himself. Even a 5 year old knows it when he sees great service!
So, we may even go back for a third time next year!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Metohi Georgila is a quiet resting place, built in 1908 by Dr Styliano Georgila, a personal friend of Eleftherios Venizelos. This house was not only a home, but also a shelter of hospitality for his friends and family. Years later… wanting to continue the warmth and the generous Cretan hospitality, which by the way our family kept for the last three generations, we reconstructed the building and we created 5 independent residences. Our inspiration wasn’t the need of a business, but the joy of offering and sharing. ... more less
