The owner of Eleonas obviously likes, no, loves his job and that is what you feel all over the place, starting with the cottages perfectly blended in the landscape, amidst a garden at the end of Rouvas gorge. By entering your room you get the impression "feel like home" hasn´t got to be an empty phrase. After discovering the Raki... More

The hotel was amazing, with a charming restaurant (probably my best food experience on Greece ), the breakfast is also amazing! The owners and all the staff were very friendly. The room we stayed was very comfortable, with a beautiful view, very peaceful. The only negative thing was location, it was our first time in Crete and it is far... More

Very nice place located on the top of a beautiful hill where you can go for long walks or borrow a bike to explore the olive plantation they have. The cottages were spacious and clean. The staff was friendly and they serve outstanding food for dinner. The only downside is the fact that it is quite isolated and far from... More

We've stayed a month ago for 5 nights with our 8 months baby. It's a perfect quiet place with special views and hospitality. Even when fully booked it's very quiet and special. We'd definitely come back again and would recommend to our friends this place. We've stayed in the stone cottages uphill which is quite difficult with a baby but... More

We stayed at the Eleonas 4 days. Its generous cottages are perfectly located between olive and fruit trees with balconies overlooking the surrounding hills and nearby mountain. Eleonas' Tavern has an inviting atmosphere and serves great homemade local food. We didn't feel the need to eat in the nearby village. We took an enjoyable afternoon local cooking workshop and thanks... More

Eleonas is a special place,... a real treat for anyone who loves nature and peaceful surroundings. We stayed here for three nights, and wish we could have stayed longer. Immediately upon arrival, Manolis and his staff will make you feel like you are being welcomed into a friend's home. The cottages are very comfortable and roomy, with great views of... More

Spent six nights here mid September as part of two weeks on Crete. This was by far the best accommodation with fantastic food in their own taverna. The cottages are very spacious, clean and private with lovely verandahs and views of the hills and towards the coast. Ideally situated for the Rouvas gorge walk up to ancient oak woods which...

We absolutely loved visiting Eleonas and just wished we could have stayed longer! The cottages are beautiful with great views of the mountains and surrounded by herb gardens. It was a lovely touch to have fresh fruit and a local bottle of wine as we arrived, along with Manolis' recommendations of what to do around the area. Eleonas is so... More

Eleonas is such a special, peaceful place and we had a wonderful seven nights here. There's something for everyone (as long as you're not looking for nightlife), whether you're into hiking and mountain biking, exploring beaches and bays of south Crete (though you will need a car) or relaxing by the beautiful pool at Eleonas where you can enjoy the...
