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.

Fantastic time,perfect house

5 of 5
We were delighted to stay in this very authentic Greek house, extremely comfortable,especially the beds. The view was just amazing,every morning I just loved to sit out with my coffee and marvel at the view. The house was very well stocked , e.g lots of towels , kitchen equipment, a good coffee maker!. We will be returning. I don't think anyone would be disappointed.
