We have just returned from an amazing week at Elounda Island Villas. Leda and Costas are brilliant hosts, we were welcomed like old friends and really felt at home from the moment we arrived. The apartment we stayed in was very comfortable and in keeping with the rural location. We were impressed with the ecological aspects of the villas, for...

This was our first visit to Elounda island visit and I am not able to praise this place enough. It has has a certain charm that is very hard to create. Do not expect total luxury, but if you want a relaxed, friendly and welcoming place to stay then this is for you. Leda and Costas are amazing people, they...

We visited one more time the Elounda Island Villas and it was again a unique and unforgetable experience. We had a cosy apartment with a spectacular view to the bay, a spacious veranda and lots of time to relax. We let ourselves to the hospitality of Litha and Costas and their easy going personalities. Bonus: the renovated kitchen, bathroom and...

This location is perfect for a quite relaxing holiday with style. The apartments are cleverly designed to make the most of the space, while modern they have the feel of traditional Cretan architecture with lots of bare wood and old style shutters The owners Leda and kostas are very friendly and accommodating and quick to resolve problems with the toilet...

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for the good words and thank you even more for the negative part of your review because it gives me the opportunity to inform other guests for this year's changes. The cookers are now relapsed with new ones and there are new, softer and larger mattresses on beds. We hope that you also will...

Stayed for 2 weeks with 2 other relative/friends staying for part of this. Lida, her parents & husband Costas are kind and unobtrusive. The food is amazing and Lida cooked us food in the evening or provided us with some to be reheated. We witnessed the most amazing storm but otherwise the weather was glorious. This is a good location...

We went to this lovely place as a recommendation off the beaten track, but in easy walking distance of Elounda. Great food, good priced drinks, pleasant friendly helpful staff, a lovely little art cafe - seemed to be the only building on the island, except the small churches. This is exactly the sort of independent self catering place I'd like...

What an amazing place to have a good quality & good priced lunch. Quiet and beautiful environment. Very friendly owners. With one of the best views too! We were shocked that more people weren't Eating there, although we understand that their accommodation was fully booked. Will certainly be returning:0)

We spent a week at Elounda Island Villas in July 2016 and what an amazing week it was! The wonderfully designed and maintained villas are located 10-15mins walk away from the main village in beautiful surroundings, like a little oasis by the sea. There is a lovely little cove just in front for swimming with very clear waters, ideal for...

As a family we have been holidaying in beautiful Elounda for 21 years, and whilst we love the village atmosphere and have always stayed there, we have never stayed at the stunning Island Villas, but our holidays would never be complete without that walk over the causeway to have coffee and cake with Lida.
