Lovely property in a lovely location. Couldn't have asked for more

5 of 5
Spent a week at Villa Ellie with the family (kids & grandchild) & had a wonderful time. The Villa had everything you would need (& more). Mandy & Tony the owners provided us with all the information we needed before & during our stay. Would highly recommend

Perfect Week in Plaka

5 of 5
Fabulous little studio cottage, perfect for two, with amazing outdoor space to relax, read and gaze across to Spinalonga island (read Victoria Hislop's The Island - it adds to your holiday). A few steps down to a lovely beach - pretty quiet in early June - and a stroll to all the restaurants within five minutes. Great location to walking, and to explore further if you have a hire car (Crete has great roads even inland in the mountains), with your own parking space next to the three locked, gated cottages. Can't recommend enough.
