owner and manager of the garden of zephyrus

Hi, I 'm your host!

I'm the owner and manager of this place. I'm also a journalist and an expert in tourist information about Chania area. In my free time, I'm a musician and a songwriter, I like gardening and reading books.

I think I know why you are here: you are here because you want to really get to know this mythical island and you want to feel it as if you were a local.
Well, that's my goal too, and what I think I can offer is a personal approach to welcoming and caring for people, meeting the needs of my guests, making you feel at home. And to provide the knowledge and information that will introduce you to the local way of life.
We Cretans have an ancient culture of hospitality and it is no coincidence that the leader of the ancient gods, Zeus who was also the patron of hospitality, grew up in the mountains of Crete.

Τhis is something that defines our personality and our cultural identity.


So welcome, don't be shy, have a chat with me! I am always available!

Giorgos Gypakis
