Bleverde Estate
Reviewed September 1, 2013

After a wonderful visit to Villa Elia in 2012, we came back for another week in August 2013. This is something as a rule we never do, as I think a return trip can be a bit disappointing. But this was certainly not disappointing in any way. All the things we loved about Bleverde the first time (the view, the surroundings, the pool and the villa itself) were just as wonderful - and many improvements have been made with all new bathrooms, a new staircase linking the pool to the villa, and a lovely new outside dining area. I thought Villa Elia couldn't be improved upon, but it has been! For a tranquil holiday where the loudest noise you'll hear are the bells around the goats' necks, and you can feel the stresses of life slipping away, you'll struggle to do better than this.

I never though I could experience happiness so complete, mood so much lifted by the light, the scents and the sounds surrounding me, the beauty of the landscape and the purity of the air penetrating my whole being. Bleverde's gift to all three generations of us visiting last week, will be in our hearts and minds for ever.
Villa Levanda's architectural approach with the atmost respect to simplicity, tradition and comfort will be the setting of my dreams as long as I live.
My only complaint? when you are in true paradise, time flies! Yesss! Our week in the unique Bleverde setting went by way too fast!

We had a wonderful time. Everything was perfect. We spent one week in Villa Levanda with our children for a special birthday. The villa was absolutely beautiful, elegantly decorated with scrupulous attention to detail. The host, Maria was fantastic. Caring, helpful and always happy to answer any queries. The pool and gardens were stunning and the location in the hills afforded magnificent views. We have no hesitation in recommending Villa Levanda; in fact we would strenuously encourage a visit.

Our family stayed at Villa Elia for one week, It took half a day to the children to feel like home in this beautiful house. The Villa is new and has all modern facilities. It has a lot of charm due to the mix of wood and stone. Using the different terraces, you can enjoy the sun all day long and appreciate the magnifiscent views. The Bleverde Estate is situated above the village of Gavalochori, a few minutes drive from the sea. From there you can easily drive to very interesting destinations (beaches, historical towns, Chania, etc.) and there are really nice restaurants all around. We found the guide provided by the owners very useful and often based our daily trips on their recommendations.
We definitely will return to Bleverde!

We have just returned from a fantastic week at Villa Levanda, we were a family of 4.
Everything exceeded our expectations, and for my husband and I, it was the best villa we have ever stayed in!
The villa has been newly constructed by the owners, and they have done so with fantastic taste and style.Because they have injected some great art work and some personal touches, it felt more like a home than a holiday stay! To top this the location is magnificent, over looking vineyards and out to the sea! The best moment everyday was that magical view with breakfast.
The villa is walking distance to the village of Gavalohori, with a bread shop and a some tavernas.
The ride from the villa, over the back road to Vamous and then onto the coast is breath taking...a must even if you have no destination in mind!
We were very reluctant to leave what had been a perfect week for us, it was absolute paradise in every way!

Room Tip: The 2 .master bedrooms are both fantastic

We stayed in Villa Elia for a week and wished it could have been more.The villa is spacious, very attractive and well appointed, with a great pool - the kids (aged 15 & 9) loved it. The peaceful and un touristy village is a 10 minute stroll through olive trees, and the pleasantly relaxed beach resort of Almyrida is 10 minutes drive. All in all, this was exactly what we were looking for in put holiday.
