“Off the beaten track” Carol T Hannover, Germany August 2013
Elounda Villas was just what we expected and needed. A quiet relaxing holiday! An ideal place especially for couples and families with young children – a little beach for little feet just in front. It is not suitable for people looking for luxury, pools and all-round service etc., as the word “Villa” may suggest. This is a rustic secluded place with a friendly caring owner and staff without being obtrusive. Tasty choice of breakfast and snacks are available and can be taken on the lovely terrace overlooking the bay. An evening meal is also possible, however, for the most served far too early. Elounda town has all required restaurants, shops and other amusements and is a walk of approx. 15 minutes. Don’t forget your torch, it is rather dark later. A rough walk and you are in the reach of a couple of rough beaches and other possible bathing areas. But it is a dream for snorkeling – these coves are the nursery for all types of fish etc – wonderful. Sitting with an evening view across the bay is breathtaking and romantic – can be loud sometimes when the bass travels over the bay from Elounda. Exclusive view of some firework shows is also yours for the free.
