    Ferry: Heraklion or Souda Bay: 49.7 mi
    UK - Most major charter airlines serve Crete, either Heraklion or Chania airports (equidistant from Villa Eleni), and Easyjet also serves Heraklion from Luton, Manchester and Gatwick, and Chania from Stansted. Jet2 flies to Heraklion from Manchester, East Midlands and Leeds. RyanAir now serves Chania from Stansted, East Midlands and Birmingham, and Monarch to Heraklion from Birmingham. Alternatively there is a very good service via Aegean Airways to both Heraklion and Chania from all over Europe.

    For other European countries consult AirBerlin, Easyjet Swiss, Germania, and RyanAir from Italy and Germany.

    For car hire we recommend Eurocars for the best service but all major car hire companies operate locally and arrange airport pick-up.

This property is situated at the lower end of a hillside with both excellent views as well as lots of privacy.
The house offers sufficient space and comfort,
The kitchen is well equipped and the open plan living room features a balcony for having breakfast and late afternoon drinks. That is as long as the wind does not blow. In he latter case the poolside terrace is a better choice.
The village of Agia Galini is close and offers sufficient choice of restaurants and shops.
We did quite a lot of walking, but needed to create our own walks using Google Earth to find the back-roads and paths. One nice walk goes from Agia Galini to the west along the top of the cliffs overlooking he sea. You have to find it by yourselves though, since it is not indicated.
To the west here are also lots of remote beaches, which in October you will have to share with almost nobody.
In short: a good place for dolce far niente interspersed with bouts of activity, be it walking...

The Villa is great and quiet and very restful. You can sit and look out over bay all times of day knowing you are close enough to everything but on your own to enjoy the peace and relaxation of a holiday.

We enjoyed so much are going back again this year.
