We had a trip to the lake of Zaros where we found a road to Eleonas. We didn't know what is that place, but we were curious, went there, and found a little paradise. So we decided to have a lunch there. After it we decided to stay at Eleonas for two days, - and finally we stayed there for five fantastic days...
The land is beatiful, all the cottages are in the middle of the olive wood, there are many huge mountains, sheeps, cicalas and ofcourse the quietness… We advise you to take a trip to the Rouvas Gorge which is much more beatiful than Samaria or Imbros Gorge. We have never seen a fabulous land like this.
We took part of a cooking lesson with Manolis’s mum, who is the best cook of the world! We loved her food which was very delicious: soutzukakia, padakia, tirikeftedes, keftedakia, and the end of all our dishes: the raki with honey and cinnamon…
So, summarily the lovely cottages, the swimming pool, the taverna with the fantastic traditional food, and ofcourse the very polite and friendly staff were the reasons why we love Eleonas. Manolis is a fantastic guy, who always has smile on his face! We are very happy to know him.
If you want to spend unforgettable, relaxing days, choose Eleonas!
See you next year,
Lia and Laszlo
