                                                              We booked the Villa Emotion for our wedding and wedding holiday and we were not disappointed! We had an exceptional week, amazing ceremony and a party in the most beautiful setting you can imagine! Views to die for with a stylish and eye catching decor! The most frequent comment on our wedding day from our guests was, “Oh my god, how amazing is this villa and the views!!” In spite of having some drama with our wedding planner and coordination on the day, our guests were so impressed by the villa that luckily they did not fully notice the imperfections and mistakes. Every detail in the villa has been personally and specially selected by the owner Pascal, art lover and a true passionate! Since we booked our holiday well in advance, we were privileged to see the amazing transformation of the villa from the architectural design to the stunning finished product. I must say we were totally amazed how communicative and supportive Pascal was... Absolutely incredible! He totally cares about his customers... Knowing that it was our wedding, he made the process easy and stress free, catered to our needs with exceptional attention and care. For that, we want to thank him again! Pascal, thank you for your support and making our special day amazing... We cannot wait to go back! For an unforgettable extraordinary experience, we highly recommend a stay in Villa Emotion!

                                                              We stayed here for two weeks in August. The villa is very high quality, and we were very well looked after by Rose & Fred who kept the villa and pool clean throughout our stay. Towels and beach towels are changed regularly, which makes you feel like you are in a 5 star hotel. The location of the villa could not be better. You are literally 2 minutes walk from the beach and the harbour where there are numerous restaurants and bars. A final word for Sue, the owner, who was helpful and in contact from our first enquiry and made the whole booking process very straightforward. We loved this villa and we will certainly go back.

                                                              A lovely villa in a great location.

                                                              We had a fantastic holiday staying at the Villa Minos. The villa was very modern and well equipped with everything you would need for your stay. It was also immaculate and bed linen and towels were changed twice a week. As we arrived very late we were told by Rose where key was and obtained it without any problems. Rose had also left us some water, milk and juice in the fridge, which was very welcome.. The pool was a bit bigger than we expected and you could swim a few strokes to each side or just relax on the lilo, which we all loved to do during our stay. We also enjoyed the views, especially at night, looking over the town of Elounda was beautiful. In the town there were lots of restaurants to choose from. Olios was our favourite as they catered very well for two vegetarians. We would definitely recommend this villa and hope one day we can return.
