Villa Ella is set in an Olive grove above the beautiful fishing village of Elounda. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the Villa to Elounda village.
The owners right from the start were extremely helpful, we had in our group a 16 month old child and they made sure a cot with bedding and car seat were waiting for us on our arrival, they also arranged car hire with a local car hire owner who met us at Heraklion airport with a car and let us follow him directly to the villa,a great idea and well worth it if you are not familiar with the roads over there.
The villa itself is set on 3 floors, it's bright and airy, very well decorated and maintained to a very high standard. Plenty of towels were provided as well as all the bedding. Everything you need in the kitchen was provided. The garden area is beautiful full of herbs and flowers, the bbq with outside fridge and plastic plates etc. was a nice touch and they seem to have thought of everything. The pool is just the right size and was cleaned every few days.
The view from the villa overlooking Elounda was beautiful all though reasonably close to the village the villa was extremely peaceful.
The caretakers Ken and Barbara were extremely helpful and always on hand should you need them.
I would definitely recommend this beautiful property, I would say as it is open plan and has lots of stairs that maybe it wouldn't be suitable for anyone with mobility problems or families with small toddlers as our one was constantly trying to climb up and down the steps,however I am sure if you requested a stair gate of some kind well in advance this would solve the problem.
All in all we had a wonderful time, the locals are lovely and the tavernas are child friendly and reasonably priced,and they were very kind to us and our children.
