Elounda, Lasithi Prefecture, Crete
Set in its own grounds in an elevated position overlooking Spinalonga Island and just 500 metres easy walk to the delightful village of Plaka, Villa May has its own private leisure pool, heated Jacuzzi, air conditioning in bedrooms and Wi-Fi all in the rental cost.

Peaceful surroundings with views of Spinalonga, and only a stroll from Plaka village with it's beach and restaurants. Short drive to Elounda. My wife and I spent two weeks here in July / Aug 2014 and balanced days by the pool with tours of the region. We've been to Western Crete in the past but were still stunned by the...

Just to say we thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay here. The villa is well appointed with everything you could possibly need and more, especially loved the garden, views and pool area.

We had a lovely ten days at Villa May. It was exactly as described in the ad. The only problem was the building work that started a few days into our break. The noise usually stopped just after lunch but was extremely loud while it lasted. Shame the builders felt the need to do it in the summer season but...

Management response:

We are sorry that a construction at Plaka seafront was taking place at the time of the visit. This is out of character with the area, as can be seen from other feedback. What little construction there is, has always taken place between November and March each year in the 7 years we have owned the property.
