Location description from owner

The Lasithi Prefecture region

Crete is the most southerly island in Europe and offers visitors a superb climate with many Blue Flag beaches and warm seas. The Cretan people are wonderfully hospitable and most people in the resorts and larger towns speak very good English. The island is steeped in history and offers many fascinating archaeological sites, museums and places of interest to visit.

The scenery is spectacular and there are several gorges that can be visited. The size of the island offers a great variety of excursions and almost all interests can be catered for. The Cretan cuisine is excellent offering fresh fish, local lamb which grazes on wild sage and thyme and a great selection of locally grown fruit and vegetables. The Cretan diet is thought the healthiest in Europe.

Elounda

Elounda is a fishing village originally made famous as the star of the TV series "Who pays the Ferryman" and the Disney film "The Moonspinners". The island of Spinalonga is a short boat trip from the harbour, recently featured in Victoria Hislop's bestseller "The Island" this former Venetian Fortress and Leper Colony is definitely worth a visit. The quaint village of Plaka is 5 kms down the road (an easy bike ride) and is a great place for a walk a swim and a fresh fish lunch. Elounda has a couple of blue flag beaches and several interesting walks. There are a good range of shops, bars,restaurants and tavernas and a couple of nightclubs.

The regional capital Aghios Nikolaos is 7 Kms away - easily accessed by bus or taxi and this is definitely worth a couple of visits. by day take in the Port and Marina, browse the shops, visit the art gallery and museum and have a swim on one of it's beaches. By night there are many bars restaurants and late night venues to tempt you.

“Great all round place to stay and no need for a car”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2016

Villa Ella sits in a large private plot in a very quiet location just 10 minutes walk from the small town of Elounda with a good choice a shops, beaches, and boat trips which met all our needs for a weeks holiday. The unusual layout is on three floors, with Kitchen/Sitting room on the top floor, 2 bedrooms and shower room on the middle floor (a double and twin) and a large twin on the ground floor with bathroom. Worked well with our teenagers. Clean, well fitted out and with great views. It really suited our family. English spoken widely throughout. We used the local bus and found timetables on the stops (as well as on-line) and remarkably they ran on time. Good support and communications with the owners in the UK and with Ken who looks after the Villa. Suggest you ask for really clear directions and a map because it's a relatively new build and not easy to find in the dark. Good value for money and although the pool is small (c.4-5m) it's pleasant. Thoroughly successful experience and strongly recommended.

“Fantastic Holiday”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2013

We had a fantastic time. The villa is ideally laid out with a lovely interior, having the lounge/kitchen on the top floor giving lovely views of both the bay and hills. The villa has a large garden with a nice area for eating outside, both garden and pool are well looked after. It is an ideal distance from the town to walk off all the food and drink, you really are spoilt for choice with all the bars and restraints.
