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.
