The beauty of simplicity

Since 1990, an old mansion in the “Alonia” neighborhood south of Agios Ioannis has been converted into a mountain refuge offering overnight accommodation and food to mountaineers who wanted to visit the highest peaks of the White Mountains.


Where the road ends…

Over time, Alonia was transformed from a one-room retreat into seven separate bedrooms, maintaining the same atmosphere and philosophy: A place of tranquility but at the same time a starting point for winter and summer excursions in the surrounding mountains.

The White Mountains

…the trail begins.

The White Mountains are a mountain complex that covers most of the prefecture of Chania.
Together they form a paradise of special natural beauty with amazing alternations of beautiful beaches, cliffs and deep canyons, centuries-old pine and cypress forests, ending in an eerie alpine landscape with countless high peaks.
It hosts many endemic species of flora and fauna.
