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.
