One need never leave the balcony, unless its to get the afternoon sun on the balcony to the rear of the property. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bars and restaurants are all just below the balcony so one never had to go far for good food and drinks. Kitchen area well stocked with utensils etc. The resort itself is a delight and far exceeded expectations. Would recommend the apartment and resort to anyone and everyone. Avril Terry

                                                                                                We had a really fantastic stay at Villa Hermione. Everything about it was first class. A brand new property when we stayed there, it was spacious, clean, had excellent facilities and catered for everything we could ever want in a holiday villa. In fact, it is the type of place you wished you owned yourself and could pop to whenever you wanted to. It really felt like home. It is set in a large garden that is home to a variety of flowers, fruit trees and vegetable plants. We regularly enjoyed picking figs from one of the trees. As you walk down the terraces built into the garden it becomes a real surprise at just how big the plot stretches and, to the delight of my son, it also includes a half-size basketball court. The location is spectacular. Looking across the bay from the villa's top floor never got dull; you could spend an hour or so just taking in the breathtaking beauty of the view. Access to Agios Nikolaos was extremely easy as was Elounda and Plaka in the other direction. We ate out most nights and found the restaurants we went to were all of a good standard and happily accommodated the wishes of our children when they wanted something removed or added from what was described on the menu. I'd pick out Kanali in Elounda as being the best for all round combination of food quality (seafood) and location. On the odd occasion when we didn't want to drive, we could walk to a couple of local tavernas - Olga (turn left out of the garden and walk 200 metres) and Kri Kri Taverna (turn right out of the garden and walk for about 1k). To round off the holiday, Manolis (the owner) was absolutely superb and showed us a level of hospitality we've rarely seen. Always on hand to help and give advice from restaurants to shops....to anything. Nothing was too much trouble. He seemed to know everyone locally so knew exactly what to suggest or who to call when we had a specific need. Thank you Manolis! This was our first visit to Crete, which is a stunning island. We had a wonderful time. Hopefully we will visit again and, fingers crossed, when we do, Villa Hermione is available as that will be our first choice to go back to.

                                                                                                This holiday villa has everything - even better than the photos! We were met promptly by the hosts. The road is winding but we rarely saw traffic on it. We were shown around the villa with everything explained and a lovely welcome basket of food to get us started. Even though it was nearly midnight, there was no rush and time and care was taken to make sure we knew all we needed to know. To wake up to the stunning view down to Elounda really is something else. There are numerous places to sit and enjoy the view - the pizza/barbecue area on the mezzanine on the way down from the parking area, the breakfast area just outside the villa, the pool area and the sun terrace at first floor level. this is a villa that would really benefit from a floor plan because the amount of indoor and outdoor space is unbelievable. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the dishwasher and washing machine were very welcome for a 2 week stay. The lounge seating was very comfortable and the two sets of doors - one on the left to the outdoor seating and one to the right to the pool area - gave a welcome breeze on warm nights. The villa was exceptionally clean and all the bedding, linen and towels provided were to a high standard. All the bedrooms have modern air con units with a good range of settings keeping the bedrooms cool all night long. The swimming pool was kept clean and its location meant that there was always a shady area to sit in, in the afternoon and listen to the goats on the hillside next door. Again there were plenty of pool "toys" to keep 3 teens well occupied as well as the loungers and umbrellas. What really sets this villa apart is its stunning panoramic view and location. Whether its the villages below, watching the boat traffic on the water or the wildlife, you can lose many hours just being outside with shade for those that want it. There are around 60 steps down to the villa from the large parking area. it is exceptionally well lit and the stairs are wide and in good condition well laid out and not steep. I went up and down them several times a day with no problems at all and I am 50+ and very unfit! Elounda itself is the perfect holiday destination. Plenty of life during the day with some lovely local produce available and enough going on at night to keep everyone happy. The choice of restaurants is vast to suit all tastes and pockets. We would thoroughly recommend this villa.
