We were looking for a quiet place in Crete and we found some place really special.
The location is amazing! the views from the bedroom, the restaurant…just great! Calm and very cozy! The owner and people working there are so nice! We got many recomendations from them of things to do, places to visit, restaurants to go…everything to make our stay very comfortable and get the best from Crete…thank you! We would love to come back
We have just returned from an amazing week at Elounda Island Villas. Leda and Costas are brilliant hosts, we were welcomed like old friends and really felt at home from the moment we arrived. The apartment we stayed in was very comfortable and in keeping with the rural location. We were impressed with the ecological aspects of the villas, for example generating electricity from solar panels, using fans and fresh air instead of air conditioning.
Our apartment had a large verandah with a view over the sea and the town, a lovely place to sit over a drink in the evening and good for sunbathing.
There are lovely walks around the hillside and the walk into town for dinner in one of the many good restaurants takes about 15 minutes.
Leda’s breakfasts set us up well for the day, we particularly enjoyed yoghurt with the fabulous local honey – in fact we asked Leda to get us a bottle of honey to bring home – a taste of Crete on our breakfasts in Lancashire.
We loved our time at Elounda Island Villas and hope to be able to return soon.
