October in Elounda

5 of 5
When we now are back home again we have lots of pictures and good memories from staying nearly three weeks at Villa Mavrikiano. We were sitting at the terrace at sunrise and sunset, looking at the changing colours of the sea, sky and mountains through the day, Hearing the "dook-dook" from the boats for Spinalonga. The sea was near by, we had our own swimming pool, the center of Elounda was a five minutes walk away. There we went to the market for buying fresh vegetables, or for a nice dinner in the evening. Agios Nicholaos was also a short trip away, by car or by bus. We have lots of good memories and hope to come back. Greetings from the Norwegian guests.

Beautiful accommodation with a great view!

5 of 5
This apartment really was a lovely find in Agios Nikolaos - it was contemporary, spacious and very comfortably furnished - would highly recommend it. Manolis and Maria, the owners, were welcoming from the moment we arrived and had thoughtfully provided breakfast for the next morning as well as other items of food and drink to welcome us. The view from the balcony makes the apartment too, as it looks directly over the little beach and out to sea and is literally across the road. The walk into the centre of town from the apartment takes about 10 minutes but there are restaurants very near to the apartment too and a great diving and watersports centre (Pelagos). Manolis and Maria have thought of everything and it made our stay all the more pleasurable for it - wouldn't hesitate to book a return stay if we were in the area again.
