Gouves, Heraklion

Welcome to the traditional Cretan hospitality !!!

1932 ... 2018 near a century the history of this place.

120 acres of vineyard made with love and passion.

The central point of the vineyard is the house where the caretaker lives day and night throughout the year. Slowly, the land’s little house (Metohi) becomes a meeting point for the whole area.

Worker, stranger, passerby friend, will always find a glass of cool water from the well or a tsikoudia ( raki ) to rest. Even in the 2nd war, the first major battle at Pelekita is on the bridge, 50 meters west of the vineyard.

35 whole years of vineyard, raisins, joys, sorrows, dreams ...! But gradually the vineyards are abandoned and their place is taken by the olive trees. In the summers, we are retiring to the Metohi. A bunch of children flood the place with laughter, play, carefree life and the evenings with restful sleep under the stars ...


Then we grew up, schools, studies, career ... abandonment!

2014 and the youngest of the family, Stella, decides to give life again to the place she loved as a child and to create with the same passion and patience and and persistence of his grandfather and father a special hospitable place that offers the visitor simple, authentic, delicious dishes of the Cretan cuisine...

Like old good times!!!
