Overview

About the property

Picturesque village & location! Free wi-fi! Restaurant in walking distance!

Eleni’s Stately Home has been built with great care on the family’s home grounds. It is a destination which combines the class of a renovated mansion and the dreamy environment of the village.

This summer turn away from the busy touristy places in exchange for a quiet retreat, where you will have a chance to meet with the locals, who still live their traditional lives. Stress of daily life, traffic and tension are instantly replaced by serenity and a pace that will send you back in time to a forgotten life revolving around relaxation. Here, you’ll have a unique experience that enriches body and soul. Gaze upon the wide horizon, breath the fresh country air perfumed with the scent of wild growing herbs and relax among colours and perfumes…

Layout

The size and space arrangement of Eleni’s Stately Home, make it ideal for big families or groups of friends, as it can accommodate up to nine people, while its design ensures total privacy and comfort!

Outside Area

The serenity of the village makes the high walls that surround this property fairly unnecessary, but to guarantee the utmost privacy, it features a romantic and spacious courtyard of outstanding beauty, hidden from the sight of anyone passing by.

In Eleni’s Stately Home you most certainly enjoy staying outdoors! This truly beautiful house has an amazing swimming pool .4 meters deep, which dares you to refresh yourself anytime you wish and offers peacefulness and calmness.

Furthermore, beautiful flowers make the terrace even more appealing and the surrounding big trees offer shade during the mid day heat.

The ample outdoors sitting and dining areas and barbecue facilities at the terrace provoke you to avoid the interiors and try al fresco dining! Also, a small garden inside the property, provides fresh organic vegetables for your meals!

From the courtyard, an external stone-built staircase leads to a decent sized terrace on the upper floor. A wooden pergola offers partial shade and a small arrangement of garden furniture allows guests to retreat from the rest of the group, if preferred.

Ground Floor

The ground floor of the villa is L-shaped. Entering the villa, you’ll see the fully equipped, open plan kitchen with the adjacent dining area. Moving on, you’ll meet the living room area with its open fireplace, which creates a unique atmosphere. On this level you’ll find one double and one twin bedroom, both with en-suite bathrooms. All rooms of the ground floor have doors that offer direct access to and from the back of the courtyard, providing privacy and undisturbed sleep for all parties.

First Floor

From the terrace, guests enter the open plan living area that consists of a small -but very tastefully decorated and fully equipped- kitchen, a dining table for four guests and another bathroom. The living room area consists of two comfortable sofa beds and a lovely loft-type bedroom with a double bed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beginning of September we had a wonderful week in this beautiful villa which is situated in the small village of Episkopi Milopotamos (http://goo.gl/maps/msKX5). The villa is clean, with all the necessary features (hair dryer, washing machine, washing machine, coffee machine, etc.) and decorated with lovely details, so that you feel right at home. On the terrace on the top floor you can see the mountains and has morning and evening sun. So is ideal for a morning coffee or raki Good night. The outdoor area with garden and pool is beautiful. Vis-a-vis the seat has a pomegranate tree surrounded by a small stone wall, where you can also sit down. The pool was for us to swim an optimal size for a little and feel refreshed. The barbecue area has apart from a grill and a Pizza-/Brotofen, and even a third Station, where you could still shoveling coal on it. So is also suitable for larger groups. Moreover, with firewood and all necessary facilities. In the morning the village is a bread of each bus (honks), as well as a vegetable sundry car (Music playing) supplies. There is also the village Garazo (approx. 10 min. By car) 2 supermarkets, which we recommend here the upper, which is run by a nice couple Cretan. The people in the village are very nice, it's helpful to speak a little Greek. We can highly recommend this villa!

A diamond of a find

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, a truly authentic villa in a small village/hamlet, very quiet, a little oasis once inside the gate. We met with Valia, a lovely lady and very focused on us having a lovely time. We loved the location, a great place if you really want to see/live the Cretan life, rather than feeling like a tourist. Great property, everything you could ask for and more.

We will be back Valia, thank you for treating us so well.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house is very private and comfortable.

We enjoyed cooking in the outside oven, resting by the pool, or just relaxing in the beautiful garden.

Everybody has been so nice with us, always ready to help and give suggestion.

The food in the taverna was very good!

It's the perfect place to relax, if you don't want anybody around, but at the same time a good start to discover the island. Thank you we hope to come back!

Une très belle villa et une attention de tous les instants de la part des propriétaires

  • 5 of 5

La villa est située dans un petit village de l'arrière-pays. C'est un bonne situation pour découvrir une partie de l'île (De Héraklion jusqu'à La Canée (Chania) en passant par Rethymnon, ainsi que l'intérieur montagneux). La maison est très belle et très fonctionnelle. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et très attentifs au confort de leurs hôtes. La présence d'un taverne juste à côté de la villa permet de déguster des plats simples et typiques et évite de passer trop de temps à préparer les repas. C'est vraiment un endroit que nous recommandons !

Throughout the area the visitor is invited to walk in a region of particular natural beauty, to admire important monuments and to experience the customary local hospitality. We are pleased to offer our delightful region for excursions or holidays, combining naturalist and archaeological routes that, in their total, constitute an important 'map' of experiences.

Both of them are sandy with clear blue water and ideal for kids, as they are shallow and well protected from winds. The beaches are organised and equipped with sun beds, umbrellas. Water sports are also available.Even further to the east, there is a small cove with a pebbly beach, ideal for seclusion and snorkeling.
