We have been to Elounda before but wanted somewhere different to stay than on our last visit. We chose Markakis Apartments on the recommendation of Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The apartment was clean, suitably equipped and well positioned in the town, being a 5 minute walk to the town centre and the harbour side, but quiet and private. The owners were very helpful - fed us from a family barbecue they had one evening - but not intrusive.
We hired a car but this is not essential as all amenities are within a reasonable walking distance. The apartments are positioned on a steep road but not too far up. We would gladly go back and will do so again.
