As you are trying to find Eleonas for the first time you will wonder what you've got yourself into, driving through the narrow village and country roads, occasionally duking it out with a oversized Zaros water truck. But you will be glad you did! The location is a beautiful hillside retreat with views of the countryside. The accommodations are modern... More

We found Eleonas on TA and thank you everyone who recommended it because it was just wonderful. Truly international clientele (which made it fun as we were there during the World Cup/Wimbledon - not that football was on in the TV all the time). Manolis and his team do everything possible to help. They provide suggestions for local walking trails,... More

What else can be written about this wonderful hotel that hadn't already been said- it's truly wonderful and Manolis and his staff should be very proud. Our room/suite was amazing. Very spacious with separate lounge area great for our toddler to sleep in. Large bathroom and also kitchen area with sink, hot plate, coffee machine and full size fridge. We... More

Just back from a great week with Manolis and his team at Eleonas. In short, we loved our mezzanine cottage, the food in the taverna, the olive grove setting, and the pool. But the best thing about the whole place is the people. Manolis, Mando, Efrem and everyone behind the scenes really work hard to make you feel welcome and... More

I was skeptical to not stay on the beach while visiting Crete with our family of two small children, esp since the Cretan mountains look like California or Arizona. Immediately entering the facility it was a showstopper. What a gorgeous and lovely place! There is nothing wanting, even beautiful beaches are 30mins away! So unique and capturing the essence of...

Am amazing week. Eleonas combines a majestic physical environment, way out in the magnificent mountains of central Crete, with am attentive hotel environment that far surpasses any 5 star establishment that I have been to. The cottages are idyllic. Modern amenities but traditional architecture. The views from them are out of this world. If you aren't able to climb steep... More

The attention to detail is exceptional and it caters for all requirements, families, walkers etc. The set up of the individual cottages in the midst of olive trees and fragrant herbs is wonderful - you have complete privacy to relax, a fabulous...

After spending a wonderful week of walking (and climbing up the steep slope and the 80 steps to the uppermost cottage no. 9) at and around Eleonas, it is easy to share the multitude of positive reviews, leaving mine at that. But I would like to go one step further. Success doesn’t come easily, it is hard work. Behind all... More

This is a very special small family business in the olive-tree covered hills of central Crete. Besides an organic farm and garden, it consists of several beautifully constructed and extremely comfortably furnished traditional stone cottages that climb up a hill landscaped with fragrant herbs and flowers, dotted with olive trees. The birdsong envelopes you. We stayed in a "mezzanine loft"... More
