Whether you are a couple who dreams of a romantic relaxing holiday, a family who enjoys the beauty of nature, breathtaking views and the warm hospitality of the locals, or a group of friends who want to explore somewhere different but still stay together and be at an only 20 mins drive away from the night life of Chania city centre or Platanias, our studios will meet your needs! The strategic position of the location will offer you a vast choice of short drive day trips to the famous beaches of Ballos, Falasarna, Elafonissi, Paleohora and much more! The local people are very friendly and will be happy to sell their home produce such as fresh eggs, homemade local fresh goat cream cheese, homemade thyme honey, fruit, vegetables, raki and rakomelo.

Hello, my name is Evienìa/Ευγενία or Eugenia.
Let me give you a little background information on the meaning of my name. The prefix "eu" in ancient Greek means "good, well, true, genuine" while "genos" means "genes". There is however another word in Greek "ευγέvεια- eviènia" which means "politeness" which sometimes people confuse with the spelling of my name or even the pronunciation(if they are not Greek speakers) by placing the accent on the wrong syllable. People who know me often make reference to a Greek saying "όνομα και πράγμα" meaning "name and reality/fact".
I have learned to grow up with this "word mixing or word play" and as such I have tried to see up to the connotations of my name by trying to always be an example of "good genes, genuinity, truthfulness and politeness"
I am Greek and have lived for 41 years outside Greece! 17 years in England and 24 years in Italy.
However, I have recently decided to repatriate and now live in my lovely island of Crete!
Although Greek by birth, my long experience of living abroad, the extensive travelling opportunities, together with the fortune of meeting so many people from around the globe over the years, make me feel comfortable living with different cultures and at home in a variety of contexts.
I can speak Greek, English, Italian, French and I am currently learning Pashto!
I am the mother of two "polyglot" daughters who I have tried to raise as "world citizens". What a rewarding experience this has been!
I am an educator and linguist by training and profession. I hold a Bachelors of Arts(B.A) in French and Italian, a Masters degree(M.A) in Applied Linguistics and a Post Graduate certificate in Education(PGCE) from the University of London.
In 1995 I founded a Bilingual international school in the north of Italy, the first in its kind, and have directed the school till June 2016.
I have been a consultant to help other bilingual programs develop both within Italy and abroad.
I am an advocate of bilingual and multicultural education.
I have been invited to present at numerous international conferences on the topic of Bilingualism and Bilingual education!
I now work as a professional consultant, teacher trainer and family advisor.
I love children, learning about other cultures and languages.
I am thoroughly enjoying hosting people from both Greece and other parts of the world at our studios since I love meeting new people and learn from them!
In my free time I enjoy cooking, gardening, embroidering, swimming and travelling of course!
My life moto is "lifelong learning"!
