Mild alternative ecotourism and multi-activity in rural areas, in order, the visitor to visit the place, the cultural elements, rural occupations, local products, come in contact with nature and the various activities in the countryside.

The space

This 19th century traditional home is located in the village of Merona in the “Paggaliana” neighbourhood and to reach it you walk through some narrow streets surrounded by huge rocks.

Built in traditional village style it has been recently renovated with natural materials such as wood and stone and has kept the original door-locks with interior soft furnishings of hand-woven materials dating back some 200 years.

Built upon 100m2, there is a courtyard complete with a traditional stone oven and the outside stairway leads you up onto the veranda offering one of the most spectacular views over the countryside of Amari and to Psiloritis mountain.

Ground floor was once the stable, store room and an area for treading the grapes is now renovated into a sitting room, kitchen, and WC all decorated in traditional style with stone floors and wooden beams. There is also a large fireside. An outside stairway takes you up to the first floor which accommodates 2 bedrooms each with its own private en-suite bathroom and fireplace.

Facilities include TV, Internet, Hydromassage, central heating. Daily maid service is available.

Over and above the unique atmosphere, my mother Mrs. Eleftheria will help give the visitor a village life experience by discovering the different lifestyle, customs and traditions of the region and dietary habits dominated by the use of olive oil, local herbs, vegetables and whole meal bread.

Guests can also visit nearby attractions of Amari such as antiquities Monastiraki (4Km), Ancient Sivritou (3,5 Km), Asomatos (5Km), Arkadi (9Km), Ancient Eleftherna (15Km), the beautiful villages of Amari, or a little farther Phaistos (40Km), Knossos, Mt. Psiloritis following the E4 hiking trail or the surrounding mountains. In case guests wish to go to the beach it is about a forty minute drive, either towards the Northern coast of Rethymno or to the South as well as visit neighboring beaches of southern Crete Moni Preveli, Plakia, Triopetra, St Paul , etc.

We spent 4 days in Manolis' house and they were incredible. The house is well furnished with taste and humility, in a traditional but beautiful way. We have been welcomed by a whole village, and felt part of the local life since day one! Every day we had the surprise of a new cooked surprise from Manolis' mother, who discreetly put it in the garden. We never have been so warmly and generously welcomed. Meronas as a small village but has 2 tavernas and a great restaurant, it is in the middle of the mountains and a lot of walks, and visits can be done from there. I couldn't imagine having missed this house in our trip. Thanks again to you Manolis and to your family and friends around who made our stay so special :)

As soon as we arrived Manolis greeted us with such warmth and friendship that I knew we'd found the right place for a week of rest. The house itself is beautifully and tastefully constructed and decorated in the traditional style and is located so that a panoramic view across the valley to the huge mountain of Psiloritis can be seen from the balcony rooftop. It was such a relaxing place, especially with Manolis' mama coming round with home cooked food many mornings and we felt like part of the village life. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Manolis' Eco House to anyone looking for somewhere quiet and relaxing to spent a few days or longer. Its a great base to explore some of the southern beaches and its also really easy to get to Rethymnon in the north. Having a car is essential though.
