As a family we have been holidaying in beautiful Elounda for 21 years, and whilst we love the village atmosphere and have always stayed there, we have never stayed at the stunning Island Villas, but our holidays would never be complete without that walk over the causeway to have coffee and cake with Lida. Believe me when you get there... More

We are just back from a very beautiful week at Lida's villas. The whole family made us very welcome, with just the right amount of help and advice while letting us have privacy and peace to enjoy the villas and their surroundings. We did not have a car and Lida organised transfer for us from Heraklion which was a very... More

We stayed at Elounda Island Villas in June. The situation is great, very peaceful with the clear sea immediately outside. It was a joy to swim amongst the tiny fishes after the numerous walks across the causeway to Elounda. It was very hot whilst we were there so we opted to sleep in the lower part of our accommodation which... More

Almost reluctant to review this magical place as I would always want to come back to the peace and calm. Located a 10/15 minute walk away from the main town on its own island this is a really special place to stay for some peace and quiet with great hospitality and care from the team. The rooms are delightful set... More

We recently had a week here for the first time, and what a fabulous location it is to stay and enjoy Greece by the sea. What can I say in praise about this location that has not been said before? We had a fabulous time and Lida, her family and her staff do run the place so efficiently. The in-house... More

We were thrilled with our stay. The location is absolutely perfect. Its like you're hidden away in your own little peaceful oasis but loved that we were just a short walking distance from nearby swimming spots and the main town of Elounda. The rooms were decorated simply, spotlessly clean and comfortable with fabulous sea views and breezes. The owner Leda... More

After long and hard research for accomodation we found Elounda Island Villas and were so glad we did! We loved the peaceful location away from the crowds yet walking distance into Elounda village (ca 25min). You have the benefit of the beautiful view over the bay across to Elounda and many times we enjoyed the evening sun on our terrace... More

We returned here for our honeymoon and we have never returned to a holiday destination, however much we enjoyed it, which speak volumes about this spot of beauty and its owners.
