Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from 10 great days at Villa Bougainvillea. We were met at the airport, as arranged by Sharron, and deliverd to the villa. The villa, garden and pool are all as advertised and first class, very comfy beds and an early morning swim, a real treat. The welcome pack was very generous and appreciated. A short walk to The Hope taverna, where we ate most evenings, a 10 minute walk to the town, plenty of choice of restaurants around the harbour. We had a super holiday highly recommend.

Villa Bouganvillea is the most perfect escape

  • 5 out of 5
The villa is just as described and better. As a family, with teenage girls, we all loved the facilities. Every aspect of the villa made our holiday one of the best. Sunbathing by the pool with the most stunning views was perfect for feeling totally relaxed. The location of the villa, at the top of the village, meant we had the most beautiful walk through the village taking in the vernacular architecture. We enjoyed the walk up because of the thought of a refreshing dip in the pool! We hired a car for four days but found walking and buses easy. We struggled to get the 1L car up the hill on the first try but soon mastered it. The tavernas in the village and Elounda provided great places to eat! Not one disappointing meal. Two of the family are Coeliac and all the tavernas were great at understanding and caterinvg for the special dietary needs.
The care and attention the owner, Sharron, gave to ensuring we had a smooth trouble free holiday was exceptional. There was regular communication and friendly response to any questions prior to going and during the holiday. The taxi transfer from and to the airport was pre-arranged by Sharron and meant for an exceptionally easy arrival. The recommended Eagle Car Hire was great, the car was delivered to the Villa and very reasonable hire rate.
We would love to go back to Villa Bouganvillea and will be recommending it unreservedly to people we know.

Fantastic Villa, with beautiful views.

  • 5 out of 5
We booked Bouganvillea for our honeymoon and we were not disappointed! It is a fantastic Villa in a really lovely location. We ate really well in the three Taverna's local to the Villa and recommend visiting them all, a special mention to The Hope and Kantouni which were both so hospitable and catered for our vegetarian and vegan diets, without any problem and gave us lots of little extras to try at no extra cost. The food was lovely and so was the Raki!! We would recommend Friends bar in Elounda for fantastic cocktails, Dimitri makes a mean Mojito and Cafe Med? just before the Ferryman was great for an afternoon beer looking over the gulf to Spinalonga. Sharron was great at keeping in contact with us from our booking to our arrival and also sent us a lovely wedding card, which was really thoughtful. Can't wait to go back and have recommended it to all our friends and family!

Beautiful Bouganvillea in Marvellous Mavrikano

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from beautiful Villa Bouganvillea, It was absolutely fab with everything we needed. The outside was as comfy as the inside and the views were by far the best in the area. The village of Mavrikano where the villa us situated was an authentic Greek village with some great photo shoots!!! It also hardcore the advantage of having a little taverna run by a lovely young Greek couple called 'The Hope' with absolutely yummy food!!!
With Elounda 5 minutes down the hill with all the bars and resteraunt and buzz you need without being commercialised what more do you need from a relaxing holiday!!!!!!
We'll be back I'm sure time & time again now we have found this little gem of a place. ?

Without doubt the best villa in this location

  • 5 out of 5
We did have a lovely holiday at this stunning villa and the Eagle car rental firm was excellent. The small car worked well around the local roads. They even picked us all up from the airport!!
We may have been lucky not to have any children in the adjoining villas as it was peacefull most of the time. Obviously, getting up the hills to the villa would be a major problem for people with walking difficulties. We did find it difficult to buy good quality food from the shops (both in Elounda and Ag Nik) so we BBQ'd one night but gave up after that.
Nevertheless, the Megaro restaurant was outstanding for chateaubriand and sea bream and the Babel bar for cocktails was excellent. The Mediterranean bar (near the ferryman) is great for early evening cocktails and to see Spinlonga light up at 9pm. The local beaches were not good so we tended to drive north of Ag Nik for the best beaches. The Bouganvilliea had stunning views, was very well equipped with excellent outside space compared to its neighbours. Without doubt the best villa in this location. The welcome pack was first class and saved us trying to find food etc on the first day. Highly recommended. Thank you Sharron

Ticks all the right boxes for Greek Island lovers

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Elounda at Villa Bouganvilliea the last week in October having been impressed by it's pictures and descriptions in the brochure. We weren't sure what to expect weather-wise from Crete at this time of year but the sun shone brightly throughout our stay and temperatures averaged mid-seventies every day and it was mild enough not to wear a coat in the evening... so perfect really.

First impressions on arriving at the Villa Bouganvilliea was how modern, airy and immaculately clean it was but the real jaw dropper was the view from the balconies and sun terrace which offer a spectacular panoramic view of the bay (dawn is absolutely stunning!). Facilities at the villa are all modern and in good working order and it's located up a gentle hill that's a pleasant stroll from the local village, Elounda. We immediately fell in love with Elounda due to it's traditional Grecian feel, good range of bars and restaurants and blue flag beach. The locals are also a friendly bunch and typical of true Grecian hospitality we were offered the usual delightful extras with drinks and meals (extra dishes and liquors) but what really touched our hearts was how they welcomed us into their village get together for yet more food and drink as we were there for closing night for their season.

The food was excellent everywhere that we ate and would definitely recommend family-run Despina for good quality traditional food. It's clear that the owner, Antonis, takes great pride in his dishes. We found a nice local in Bar Eden for pre-dinner drinks and banter with the staff there and one evening took a short taxi ride to Plaka, a nearby fishing village where the waiters told us all the gossip and shared photos of celebrities who had also recently visited (Rhiana and Lady Gaga no less!).

It wouldn't be a complete review without mentioning the nearby island, that was an old leprosy colony, Spinnanlonga; made famous in Victoria Hislop's book 'The Island'. We hired a boat for the afternoon and took a tour around the island and to some secluded beaches and bays for some deep sea swimming and we even got a very unexpected discount which was a real bonus at the end of an amazing afternoon, thank you Captain Yannis!

Anyway, I think the above sufficiently captures our fantastic stay at Bouganvilliea and needless to say we'll be returning next year...and probably the year after that. We're massive fans of the Greek islands for their beauty, food and convivial hosts

One of my best holidays in a long time...

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment I arrived at Villa Bouganvillea I felt an immediate sense of relaxation. The Villa is immaculate and the views really are stunning. During the evenings we wondered down to Elounda and were made to feel incredibly welcome by the restaurant and bar owners… I would highly recommend Villa Bouganvillea and Elounda.
