We had the best time staying at Elounda Island Villas. It's peaceful, beautiful and Lida and her parents are great. The location is far enough away from the touristy city of Elounda but close enough to walk to get dinner and drinks at night. The best beaches and snorkelling are only minutes away and Lida will give you tips on... More

For those who look for a romantic stay, this is the place. The villas are really beautiful, with a great view over Elounda. Lida is the greatest host who will do whatever she can to help you make the most of your stay. If it's packing your lunch to take to one of many amazing private beaches, arrange a boat... More

Elounda Island villas are idyllic and in a beautiful peaceful location. Ours was lovely, clean and stylish with a balcony overlooking the sea. Lida who runs the place is an efficient and charming host as well as an artist. Her mother cooks beautiful food in the little cafe which is open from 9-6. Snorkelling from the small beach right outside... More

The peninsula on which the appartments are situated is a beautiful area for walking, swimming and snorkeling. It is quiet, has wonderful views on the bay, sea and mountains on all sides, and yet is within easy (walking) distance from a village with harbour, shops and restaurants. The appartment we had was delightful, with simple, but stylish layout and furniture... More

My wife and I spent a delightful week at Elounda Island Villas (EIV) with our daughter and her three small children. We were hoping for somewhere quiet, simple but comfortable, with easy access to a safe beach, and places to eat, as well as self-catering facilities, and we were not disappointed. Far from it! EIV exceeded our most optimistic expectations.... More

We only spent 3 nights but would have stayed longer! A "rustique" charm, excellent services (and a very good restaurant nearby, Kanali), several beaches within walking distances - and the city of Elounda far and close enough at the same time to get the best of it. We would highly recommend Elounda Island Villas for the ones who enjoy nature... More
