Hi Matej,

Have you tried Evolution? You can possibly even integrate Google
directly via Settings > Online Accounts and it should show up in
Evolution (haven't tried it personally and mileage may vary). 

I've used Thunderbird + Lightning in the past, but Evolution has really
great support for Calendars, Contacts, Tasks and Notes.

If you've used Evolution in the past and didn't like it (yes, there was
a time even for me), they've done a great job and works 99% of the time
without issues.

Hope this helps and best of luck!
