We have recently returned from a wonderful holiday in Crete, where we were fortunate to have
stayed at villa Metohi Georgila. We found it on the internet and booked into, Agapi, one of the five apartments that have been created in and around the original villa, for an eight day stay.
The villa was sumptuous, with beautiful gardens at different levels and lots of bird life at this time of year.
We were warmly welcomed by Areti who met us at the airport and took us to our charming,
spotlessly cleansed fully equipped apartment. The home made cake, fruit and drinks were a lovely surprise and very much appreciated.
Hiring a car is recommended but we enjoyed travelling by bus and hiring bikes.
This is a great area of Crete, lovely beaches,warm sea,delicious food and friendly people.
We would run out of superlatives trying to describe the villa,the scent from the jasmine round the pool was wonderful. The warmth we experienced from Areti and the family,small kindnesses and the professionalism of the enterprise made for an amazing, relaxing holiday.
- 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
