Welcome!
ACCESS and parking: dear guests, as many properties in Elounda, our villa is built on top of a steep street. Please keep this mind when you will rent a car. Small cars are always easier to use in this area, like Suzuki 4X4 or any of these kinds, Big cars, will have trouble accessing the narrow streets of Aghios, and are too heavy to go up steep streets and hills.
You have your own private parking space in front of the house, but getting to the house will be much easier if you rent a smaller car. 5 years of experience taught me well!!!

We had a very relaxing stay at Villa Hellios. The views were amazing - as we'd expected from the photos.
We were impressed by the welcome even though our flight had been delayed and we arrived in the early hours of the morning. The villa is well appointed and thoughtfully furnished and we were made to feel at home. It's a short walk into Elounda and the harbour but a quite a steep hill for the last hundred metres or so on the return journey - good for working off those extra calories after dinner.
I'd definitely recommend this property to friends.
thank you for all those nice things about the villa!
we are so pleased you felt like home! this is really what we are working for!
all the best and happy new year !
Lovely views and Elounda is a great location. Villa is very comfortable and really well presented.
Lovely villa. Fab views and a cosy, secluded place to stay.
Kitchen could do with better utensils and kitchenware but otherwise a really lovely place.
Thank you very much !
So happy you had a non ce holiday !
Yes you are right !

New stuff are on their way !
Hope to have you back next year !
A gorgeous bijoux villa
A beautiful compact bijoux villa with stunning views and gorgeous pool and terrace area. It is tucked away and sufficiently private but you are still able to see what's going on in the busy little harbour below. There is a wide choice of friendly well priced restaurants within walking distance and the neighbouring locals are very friendly. The Bluebay Crete Management organised a meet and greet and could be contacted if needed. We had a wonderful week here and will definitely return and recommend to friends and family.
lovely villa ,just like the photos ...No mention of the hill though !!! wow what a hill . It made every trip fun , just like a roller coaster !Thanks to Laura for our little gifts , much appreciated and also the welcome pack think that is a must if you are thinking of booking your holiday there ....you will love the wonderful views.Don't forget to wave to the dear old lady on the corner too .If we return to Elounda we would choose the villa again .

The perfect location
Absolutely stunning Villa. We travelled in November - a little later than normal - and it was therefore important to us to have a few home comforts. The Villa didn't disappoint. Beautifully appointed, lovely decor and very comfortable. Plenty of seating areas for eating, reading or sunbathing with sun or shade to suit from dawn until 4pm. Extremely comfortable bed - often hard to find in Greece. Loads of storage space and very well thought out rooms. Well equipped kitchen which had everything we needed to self-cater. Only one small comment - there were no soup/cereal bowls - but there were some lovely big cups which sufficed! We wouldn't normally need bowls in Greece but as cornflakes were provided in the welcome pack, we thought we may as well eat them!! Super views both front and back. Extremely quiet location. Central heating was used for a few of the evenings and was very effective. A real bonus for us was the internet access - a "must have" item when you run a small business - this was fast and worked on demand every time. The location itself was great and provided a good base for exploring the local area. Centre of Elounda is only 10 minutes walk away and the town has every facility, plus some lovely back-streets, hill walks and beaches within a reasonable distance. You could easily manage without a car, but the slope up to the village wouldn't suit everyone. One tiny point which didn't affect us but might affect the less agile and is worth knowing is that there is no hand-rail on the stairs. We would thoroughly recommend this Villa to anyone and hope to return in future years.
Thank you for your nice comments! Come back anytime!
We are happy that our guests can now enjoy the internet connexion, as it was really something they were asking for...now its done!
About the stairs we will definetely think about it,although its our first comment on that subject, but, it can greatly improve the stay of many guests.
Thank you Liz and doug!
Mavrikiano is a typical Cretan village,2mn from the colourful town of Elounda, where there is all you can wish to spend the best holidays ever: 'blue flag' beaches, water sports, local tavernas, typical 'kafenion' (cafés), seafood restaurants, bars, pubs, disco nights, shops, souvenirs, jewellers, bookshop and newsagents, supermarkets, latest fashions stores, all day dining, departures from the famous island of Spinalongua... Elounda is only 9km from the Cretan 'Saint Tropez': Aghios nikolaos, where you will discover (day and night) the Cretan way of life in the summer! The pedestrian streets are famous for their shops and restaurants, market on Wednesdays will give you a taste of local products and maybe you will find time to visit Kritsa only 15mn drive from Aghios, one of the most exquisite Cretan village ever seen.
rent a and visit the Lassithi region, the monasteries, the oil farm, the archaeological sites so close to Elounda.
Other Activities: Cruises to Spinalongua, jet ski, fishing cruises, blue flag beaches, archaeological sites, museum
