Eleni's Stately Home has been built with great care on the family's home grounds. It is a destination which combines the class of a renovated mansion and the dreamy environment of the village.

If you are looking for a tranquil very remote location, this is your happy place. Completely away from the tourist track, tucked away in a beautiful village. The villa has recently been renovated in a rustic way to provide modern conveniences .

We chose Eleni's because we wanted a charming historic villa in a quiet spot not too far from the coast and not too far from Rethymnon or Chania.

Additional amenities & feature info
The ground floor of the villa is L-shaped. We enter the villa from the fully equipped open plan kitchen with the adjacent dining area and living area with its open fireplace. From here, we enter the first bedroom with two single beds and en-suite bathroom. The bedroom has a door that leads to the back of the courtyard. Opposite the beds, along line with the wardrobe, is a door that leads to the other bedroom which again has its own bathroom and a door that leads to the courtyard. In other words, each room of the ground floor has its own direct access to and from the courtyard to provide privacy and undisturbed sleep for all parties. Both bathrooms consist of shower, sink and toilet.From the courtyard, next to the door that leads to the kitchen of the ground floor, is an external stone-buil... more
