Moti n'était malheureusement pas disponible pour notre arrivée et départ mais tous nos échanges se sont bien passés. Une chose à savoir qui n'est pas précisée dans l'annonce et qui peut avoir son importance : les deux zones de couchage (la chambre et le salon) ne sont pas connectées, il faut sortir de la maison et descendre un étage. Idem pour la salle d'eau et le wc qui sont au bout du balcon.

                                                                                          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.

Upon arrival the Villa was in immaculate condition, a set of fresh towels were laid out for us and a bottle of water was stored in the fridge. The villa was furnished to a high standard and was very well presented like a 5 star hotel! We would like to say a big thank you to Rose and Fred who came and greeted us during our stay, this made us feel even more welcome! We were extremely impressed as the villa is located within a minute walking distance from the beach and the central square of Elounda where there are a range of boutiques, restaurants and bars. Everything is right on your doorstep, you couldn't ask for anything better! We would highly recommend going to the Olio restaurant as the staff were very friendly and the Pizzas were to die for!! Finally, a massive thank you to Sue who looked after us and was always on hand if we needed any help!! We would definitely go back! Andrew & Hannah
