LUXURY VILLA WITH POOL - SUPERB ACCOMMODATION WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Elounda - Villa Ellie

3 Double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom, 3 bathrooms, 1 en-suite, sleeps 8

Villa Ellie is a detached villa in a rural location with stunning views over Elounda and Mirabello Bay. It is 10 minutes by car to Elounda where you will find bars, restaurants, shops and beaches. The villa boasts a secluded pool with shower, fridge and sun terrace, stone oven & bbq under a pretty pergola, outside dining area & flower gardens. The villa is on 2 levels - beautifully decorated and furnished open plan living area with TV, DVD player, music system and open fireplace, a fully fitted kitchen with dining table and a shower room all on the ground floor. The whole lower level is surrounded by shaded terracing and large windows look out onto the most spectacular views. Upstairs are 3 double and 1 twin bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. Three bedrooms lead out onto a sun terrace. Stone steps lead down from a large gated parking area through tended garden areas to the villa. The whole property and land are maintained to the highest standards whilst still feeling homely and comfortable

You need to see it for yourself!: We have been informed by previous guests that the villa is so much better than it looks on the website. There's only so much you can write or photographs you can take but until you see the villa for yourself, you don't realise how comfortable, spacious and pretty it is. So why not book your holiday with us and sample what other guests have already experienced. Everything you need for the perfect getaway is at the villa and if you find it's not, we will do our very best to get it for you.

Situated on the outside of a small Cretan hamlet, you can experience the serenity of the area around the villa. Take a leisurely walk along the lane running alongside the villa and you will see and hear nothing but birds and the occasional sheep, all the time having glorious views of Mirabello Bay and the mountain range across the water. Watch the mountains take on a beautiful pinkish hue as the sun starts to set in the early evening - a magnificent sight.

Locality: Within a short walk of the villa in the village is a small family run taverna which offers tasty Cretan food and local drinks. Everything is grown and made locally and if you would like something that is not on the menu, give them a couple of days notice and they are happy to prepare it for you. Pop in as well for a Greek coffee in the morning and get to know the locals passing by - they are always happy to wish you a good day. Sit and take in another view of the area - this time the surrounding valley with hundreds of olive trees scattered over the hills and the ruins of windmills from days gone by. One windmill remains working, having been renovated by the family and makes a wonderful sight when turning in the brisk north winds. If you like to walk, this is a great place to explore, with old donkey tracks taking you off of the main road and into the real countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We considered ourselves fortunate to find this villa and when we arrived, it was even more splendid than on the website - very very comfortable for 8 people. A magnificent home. We had a marvelous time and hope to return.

AMAZING VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
The villa was superb, immaculately clean and provided everything you could possibly want during your stay. We spent most of our time around the pool taking in the breathtaking views and enjoying the peacefulness. We went to the small taverna in the village which was great and we had some lovely meals there in a really nice atmosphere with the locals popping in and out. All in all, a wonderful relaxing holiday with a touch of luxury and lots of home comforts. Thank you to the owners for sharing their wonderful villa.

FANTASTIC VILLA IN STUNNING LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Ellie is a wonderful villa in the hills above Elounda. The pictures on the website don't do justice to the location. The views are simply stunning and the decor and quality of the villa surpassed our expectations - it was spotless, in great condition and well maintained while we were there. The owner is conscientious and very kind and we have nothing but good things to say about our week there. Highly recommended. Thank you.

SUPERB VILLA ELLIE

  • 5 out of 5
Just back home from a fantastic relaxing stay at wonderful villa Eliie. We were met on arrival by the very friendly care-taker Mandy who showed us round. There was a lovely welcome letter and a hamper from the owners with lots of things you need when you arrive somewhere on holiday along with many extras,( coffee, cornflakes, nibblies, fresh bread, wine etc. the fridge was well stocked with many bottles of water, a bottle of wine, a six pack of beer and some butter). Mandy gave us her mobile number in case of problems. She really is an asset to the owner as she takes such a pride in the smooth running of the villa. The photographs do not do it justice so I would advise anyone who is in need of a relaxing break to book the villa and see for yourself. There is a friendly local taverna which is easily walkable from the villa and we went there the first night as we were tired and did not want to venture out in the car. However the meze was so good that we went back several times. Cheerful Tony the owner looks after the pool and was always checking if everything was to our satisfaction. Another plus with the villa is the good free wifi. All in all our experience was much wonderful. hope to go back again!

VILLA ELLIE LACKS AIRCONDITIONING IN LIVING AREA

  • 2 out of 5
The house was very well looked after, clean, plenty of towels and all sorts of supplies. We loved the view from the terrace. We were very disappointed though to find out on arrival that the house has airconditioning only in the bedrooms. Due to its construction it gets boiling-hot in the living area when we were there, especially when there was no wind. The owner kindly provided us with a fan, but that didn't help. The last days there was wind and we could have air circulation with the terrace doors opened.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the time all of our guests take to write a review for their stay at Villa Ellie and any criticisms made are taken seriously and steps taken to address them where possible. We would like to point out in this instance that the detailed description of the villa does state that air conditioning is in the bedrooms only and would encourage all potential guests to thoroughly read the information on the website and to ask questions relating to any concerns they may have before they make the booking. We hate to disappoint any of our guests and strive to make their stay at Villa Ellie a pleasant one that fully meets their expectations.

AMAZING VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the Villa Ellie for a family holiday and the only response is a great big WOW !!!
On arrival Mandy was extremly helpful in showing us around and we were all amazed at the luxury we would be staying in for the forthcoming week. The owners provided every conceivable item that you would want.
The cleanliness of the Villa was exceptional, the location and the stunning views were such that you did not want to venture out.
The games and DVD's for the adults and children were excellent. The choice of music was geared for all tastes. The Bar-b-q area was amazing and the pool area was so well equipped with Li-lo's and rings for a real fun time.
Although I usually do not go back to the same place for a holiday, I would certainly revisit this Villa and recommend it to friends.
Congratulation, well done and a big thank you to the owners for allowing us use their fantastic Villa they should be very proud.
Thanks again to Mandy, we all had a fantastic holiday.
With kindest regards
Carol Thomas
