Velegrakis Nikolaos: "Fournes" Crete Island Hotel Tip by call_me_rhia
Crete Island Hotels: 157 reviews and 205 photos
A wonderful place run by two wonderful persons: Olga and Nikos. In this lovely house they have 4 bright cosy rooms with kitchenette - the only problem is to find it, since they don't advertise it. The story goes that they mainly rent rooms to friends and friends of friends from Germany, where they spent 35 years - we found it by asking around for rooms. If you decide to contact them be aware that they only speak Greek or German - and English will take you nowhere.
Unique Qualities: Olga and Nikos - who took well care of us: beer, raki and ouzo flowed freely - and they even cooked pastitio for us one evening. And every morning we had a wonderful glass of freshly squeezed orange juice waiting for us. We paid 25 euros for a double room - and the dinner and drinks were kindly offered to us.
Address: outside fournes village
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Fournes is about 15 kilometres from Hania (direction alikianos). To reach the guesthouse turn right at the bridge at the end of the village
