AirCon is provided as is heating for the winter. The lounge area boasts an open log fire in winter. TV is provided. The Villa has a secluded pool and garden.

Sailing and diving are close by in Ag Galini.

This are is renowned for dolphins and the historical story of Icarus and Daedelus. Villa Eleni is very secluded, not overlooked and has excellent facilities. A car is required.

Superb place to stay in Crete
Jun 2019

A well appointed villa, with pool, set in the hills above Agia Galini with superb views to the south over the islands and the LIbyan Sea; very private and quiet by day and night.
