Beautiful Villa, Stunning Location

5 of 5
This was our first trip together to Elounda and everything about our time there was idyllic. Villa Zoe Maria is simply stunning. It was spotlessly clean, modern throughout and perfect in every way………even down to the freshly conditioned bedding and towels which smelt just like home! The patio area is well presented which allows you to enjoy the outdoor living in the sunshine all day. The location is ideal for shopping, the beach, eating out and the cocktail bars, which we tried a few! There were a number of restaurants recommended to us, many of which knew Sue & Steve very well and they made us feel extremely welcome including the odd free desert!! The locals are extremely friendly and they put us to shame as they speak perfect English. A big thank you to Rose & Fred for looking after us during our stay and a huge thank you to Sue for making the booking process pain free and also giving us perfect weather in the middle of October! Thank you Sue for everything, we will be back! Richard & Justine

Super charming, adorable house!

5 of 5
We stayed here last Spring on a trip for my birthday, it was perfect! The house is so cute, it's like something from a fairy tale. The views from the terrace are fantastic. Hanging out in Elounda was great fun. There's a beach right at the bottom of the hill and the town has loads of great places to eat and drink. The next town over is also lovely and not too far a walk (or a quick bus ride). We had a great time, I'd highly recommend it!
