Eva and Yiannis could not have been more welcoming, they provided lunch on the first day, and as Yiannis was trying his wood oven for the first time, another wonderful meal was provided. All in all a great holiday, and as the pool is now heated, the two grandchildren were in it most of the time.

                                                                                      Villa Elia is the perfect place for a relaxing “getaway” with spectacular views and tasteful modern spacious accommodation. David and Lindi, the owners, met us on arrival and showed us around our accommodation. They were both a font of local knowledge having lived in Crete for many years. We booked for a week at the end of September and hired a car so we could explore the surrounding Cretan towns and villages. Crete is quite hilly so unless you are a mountain goat or like walking uphills we would recommend hiring a car. The car hire rates are very reasonable, especially late in the season and give you the opportunity to explore the scenic coast and mountains locally. Cretans are famous for their welcoming smiles and warm hospitality and there are many local tavernas within walking distance. Milatos is a local fishing port nearby with numerous excellent tavernas overlooking the sea specialising in freshly caught seafood and local Cretan dishes. Although there were only two of us Villa Elia can comfortably accommodate at least 6 in the three spacious bedrooms. The master bedroom was particularly impressive with modern en-suite bathroom and sliding windows leading onto a terrace giving a fabulous panorama. The other two bedrooms (one double and the other with twin beds) were on a lower floor and also had equally impressive and lovely sea views. These two bedrooms shared a spacious bathroom with a ‘wet room’ shower. The separate large utility room had a washer and dryer. The living room/dining area/kitchen was a large family open plan area with modern “L” shaped settee, six seater dining table and well equipped European kitchen. The combination of the vaulted ceiling and large sliding double glazed doors leading onto the front terrace gave a feeling of bringing the panorama into your room when fully opened. From the living room you can walk onto the side terrace with the swimming pool, Cretan pots, umberellas and recliners for those sun worshippers that would rather be lounge lizards with a good book and cool drink to pass the time away! We spent most of our time exploring the local countryside during the day, enjoying a sundowner on the terrace as the sunset followed by a meal in the friendly local Milatos tavernas. Overall an excellent location and family friendly accommodation that we would fully recommend to future guests. Thanks especially to David and Lindi for their warm welcome, local advice on the sites.

                                                                                      We were two and stayed here for a week in October 2016. From the street there is a lockable front door which leads to a small private courtyard with many plants in pots. The apartment is on the first floor and is reached by a flight of stone steps - when we stayed the lower apartment was occupied by a family member of Manolis and Evi. At the top of the steps is a small balcony with entrance to the living room and bedroom on the right, the kitchen and bathroom on the left. Further along the balcony is a spiral staircase to the roof terrace. The living area is very well decorated with its stone feature walls and has all necessary mod-cons, air-con, wi-fi, and TV, etc. The bedroom is well sized with plenty of wardrobe space and a very comfortable bed. The kitchen and bathroom are opposite the living area which means going outside to use these facilities. We didn’t find this to be a problem. The area is well lit at night with a light operated from the living room. The kitchen and bathroom are small but they are both manageable. We used the roof terrace a few times to relax in the sun with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine after a day’s sightseeing. The apartment is very well placed near the centre of Heraklion with most places being less than half an hour’s walk away. Eleftherias Square with its restaurants and cafes is about 10 minutes away, the Archaeological Museum is here too. The bus station is about 20 minutes walk away, and buses to Knossos and other major towns run frequently from here. The Venetian Walls are about 5 minutes away and the Venetian Fortress about 25 minutes. Manolis and Evi are excellent hosts, Manolis picked us up from the airport when we arrived in Crete. They are both very helpful and Manolis responds quickly to emails.
