Fantastic villa with fabulous view! Great outdoor seating area. Villa spotless and beautifully furnished and very well equipped. Peaceful setting. Walkable beach, short ride into Agios Nikolaos. And many other beaches a short drive away. Agios Nikolaos is a buzzy, friendly, charming town. Antonis the villa manager was really helpful. Our return visit was as good as the first if not better! Missing the view already!

Mes 60 ans resteront à vie dans nos mémoires pour un séjour familial merveilleux dans une grande villa confortable, chaleureuse et adaptée à nos 4 générations.
Une vue formidable sur la baie. Merci à Antonis pour son accueil et sa disponibilité.
Merci aux chefs qui nous ont préparé des diners traditionnels grecs succulents raffinés et très gourmands pour ma soirée d anniversaire.
Un séjour que je recommande à tous.
On ne peut qu'aimer la Crète.

We stayed at this Villa in October 2019 and loved it.
The villa is a stunning, modern building with great outdoor space. There were six of us, but at full capacity of 11, there is more than enough space for everyone.
The fridge was really well stocked on arrival, as per other reviews and Nicos was a friendly and very helpful host.
The villa is located midway between Agios Nikolaos and Elounda. Both are around 10 euros in a taxi and both worth a visit.
We hired a car, which I'd recommend. Our first villa holiday and couldn't recommend this place more highly. We'll definitely consider another visit.

We had a wonderful week at Villa Bellelen in September. The villa is set back from the road, on a not too steep hill and is wonderfully private whilst being connected to the local area. Nicos met us on arrival and introduced us to the villa - and to an extraordinary 'welcome gift' of the best stocked fridge we had ever seen - enough food and drink for a family for a week!
The villa is beautifully designed and finished - with breathtaking views, spacious communal areas and yet a very homely feel. The poolside is fabulous - with a lovely shelving pool that stays warm all day, lots of very comfortable loungers and a brilliant shady spot under the trees (our favourite!) - a great place for a glass of wine before dinner as the sun goes down. There is a shaded table for lazy breakfasts - and even a sauna - which was surprisingly nice even in the heat! The airconditioning works extremely well throughout. The bedrooms and bathrooms are 5 star hotel quality - with more than ample storage and (again) beautiful finishes. The beds are comfortable and Nicos provides extra everything - robes, slippers, bedding, pillows, towels, beach towels. At the front of the villa there is a security gate and ample parking.
There are three beaches within a few minutes walk. Havanias is the closest - a ten minute walk downhill - and is a perfect Crete beach. It has some stones so beach shoes are helpful - but the sea is glorious - fish abundant and as a blue flag beach, it has toilets, first aid and sunloungers/umbrellas. It also has a fab beach bar - relaxed with great food and drinks.
There is a lovely taverna at Olga's just above the beach where we ate most evenings - a simple but delicious fare - and we also ate at the Meliti Hotel bar - again terrific value and views.
There is a fully pavemented walk into Ag Nik which takes about 30 mins to the centre where you can get anything that you might need.
We didn't need to use our car at all which was a pleasure - but most of all we just enjoyed sitting outside the villa looking at the wonderful views and swimming or reading!
We can recommend this villa very highly - and the generosity of Nicos was really examplary. He even gave us a parting gift of his own olive oil and honey!
The villa would suit anyone. The only note of caution is that the walk to the beach requires crossing a tricky and busy road - but it is very do-able with care
Thanks so much - we had a wonderful time!

This is as amazing as it looks on the pictures. The villa is stunning, in a beautiful location and although it is a little bit out of the way from Agios Nikolaos it's worth it as it is simply beautiful. Our welcome from Nikos the owner was so great and we were totally blown away by his 'welcome pack' which basically was a filled fridge with everything from fruit and veg, to beers, soft drinks and bottles of wine and raki! And he also thought of providing bread and eggs etc. What a star!
We have really loved the villa, and would happily come back in a heartbeat. Would have no hesitation in recommending this place. And when we left, Nikos gave us all a present of olive oil and honey, so sweet!

We were a party of six (all adults) and were specific in our needs for bedrooms and bathrooms. The villa was very clean, well-kept, and new. The common spaces were very generous in size, both indoor and out, and the aspect overlooking the Bay of Mirabello and Agios Nikolaos was quite magical. We are keen cooks and spent most evenings cooking and dining al fresco. The owner/host, Nikos Papadakis, went overboard to ensure that we were well looked after. He provided a "welcome hamper" which in fact was a fully stocked refrigerator and kitchen, a very welcome finding for us as we arrived early evening and after a very long travel day (14 hours). He checked in every few days to ensure that everything was to our liking and that there were no missing details. He accommodated a request for a different set of pillows for one of our party, made sure that there was always adequate charcoal for the BBQ. As a parting gesture, he provided each of us with a gift of local honey and olive oil, quite unexpected, and very generous in spirit. This property and the adjacent (also owned by the owner) would be a great spot for an extended family reunion or wedding. The only suggestion I could make would be to have someone who used the kitchen (ie was a cook) to review some of the supplies (a sharper knife for example) but this would be quibbling. I would certainly return.

Villa Bellelen is an spacious villa situated on the edge of Agios Nikolaos. Views across the Mirabello Bay are superb. The spacious villa is modern and very clean with fresh linen supplied three times during our seven-day stay. The large television has both Netflix and Amazon Prime. There are also smaller televisions in each of the five bedrooms. It is only a five-minute drive to the middle of Agios Nikolaos where there are numerous shops and restaurants. The villa's owner Nikos is incredibly kind and helpful, greeting us personally on our arrival and giving us a personal tour of the property as well as advising on good places to visit and eat. The nearest beach is only a short walk away. Overall, we had a hugely enjoyable week at this excellent villa.

The villa is even more splendid in reality, perfect for a family of varying ages.Inside is very beautiful and comfortable, but the star is the stunning pool and view, complimented with a great outside BBQ and dining area, where we spent most of our time. The owner was very thoughtful from start to finish; providing a substantial welcome pack, most welcome as we arrived very late, gave us gifts at the end of our holiday and helped make our last day relaxing. Though you can walk to a local beach we would recommend car hire.Taxis are readily available though. We have been to this area many times and there are plenty of places to explore; Elounda remains our favourite. Booking through Tripadvisor made the process straightforward and Superior villas helped organise hiring 2 cars, taking the stress away of a very late flight arrival. Have already recommended to friends... a wonderful holiday.....hope to return!

I stayed here with my husband, 2 children ages 6 and 4 and also some other family members in June, would could not have had better stay.
For a start the villa is spectacular just as you see on the pictures, the setting and the view are breathe taking. The location is great, a very short walk to the beach, my husband and I walked for around 30 minutes into the centre but used a taxi with the children. We also took a taxi to Elounda swell which is a small fishing village, taxis are easy to get from the Villa and are cheap to get around,
The Villa itself is large, spacious and well equipped, and decorated to a very high standard. The pool and garden area is lovely with comfortable loungers and lots of great outdoor seating for eating.
A huge credit really goes to the owners, Niko and his wife went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. We arrived to a full fridge of food and drinks which was most welcomed after arriving late and having small hungry children, we got to sample some of his own olive oil which me makes himself too which is too die for.
Niko even took us on a tour around the town the following day so we could get our bearings, which was fantastic to have a local show you the best places to eat also.
Overall the villa was superb and we will be retuning again in the near future for sure.
