“Relaxing among the Olive Trees!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Eleon Residence, also called "Surrounded by Olive Trees," is a beautiful villa about 10 minutes outside of Rethymnon, Crete. The villa is located in a quiet area, and is surrounded by olive trees with a lovely view of the mountains and the countryside. The garden is beautifully landscaped with a very nice pool. Don't expect to get a great deal of exercise doing laps in the pool, but instead enjoy the peace and tranquility of the villa and the area. Be aware that the pool is probably not well suited for small children as it is 1.6m throughout, without a proper shallow end. Good exercise for me though, as I was treading water most of the time... and a good way to burn off all that wonderful Greek food and wine! The outdoor furniture is beautiful and comfortable. We had breakfast outside every morning by the pool with fresh bread from the bakery 5min from the villa.

The interior decor, is also very tasteful, modern yet traditional. The stone walls give the villa a very "old world" feeling of warmth and hospitality. The kitchen/dining area is very nice, and complete to do just about any cooking. We didn't cook, but preferred to enjoy the local Taverna's on the beach, also about a 5min drive away. The bedrooms are also big and spacious with ensuite bathrooms. The shower in the master ensuite bathroom is very small, but this wasn't an issue for us, as we chose to use the shower in the bathroom on the main landing instead.

House keeping is every other day, and is excellent. There is a washing machine, (no drier) and a dishwasher. The wifi worked perfectly throughout the house, and there were plenty of electrical sockets. Television channels were limited, but who's there to watch TV anyway?

What really makes this villa special however, was the amazing hospitality and service offered by Katerina, the owner, as well as by George at SimpleCrete.com who arranged the booking for us. George, who is located in Chania, helped us find the perfect villa for our family and was incredibly helpful and responsive from beginning to end with whatever we needed to arrange our trip, including the car rental. Once we arrived in Crete, Katerina, was our local contact, and is also the owner of the villa. She did everything she could to make our trip perfect and to make sure that all of our questions and needs were answered. She even made sure that we had a stocked fridge upon arrival complete with fruit, vegetables, cheese, eggs, yoghurt, wine and her own self produced olive oil! Both George and Katarina speak perfect English.

I would highly recommend George at SimpleCrete.com and Eleon Villas, "Surrounded by Olive Trees" for anyone traveling to Crete. They are wonderful people and truly know how to look after their customers. Thanks George and Katarina!
