Villa Eleonas is a lovely stone villa in a small Cretan village. It is fully equipped and has a private pool and a barbecue on site. It can comfortably accommodate up to six people in the three bedrooms - one downstairs and 2 upstairs. As for the location, it is a serene and rural environment, perfect for a rejuvenating break from daily life. The closest sandy beach is a short drive, about 10 minutes while other facilities such as restaurants and mini markets can be found in great proximity.
Our villa is consisted of a 2-storey house with a lot of outdoor space. In general it is a very comfortable house which is designed to be convenient and practical. It can be accommodated both in winter and summer as there is heating and air-conditioning in every room. The pool is operational from March to November while the fireplace can be used in winter months. Everything in this house has been done out of love and having our guests’ needs, safety and comfort as a priority.
Starting with outside, there is a parking space, a private pool ( 7.5m x 4m and 1.70m maximum depth), a stone barbecue and a lot of seating options for our guests to relax and enjoy their meals while outside. For the pool area we have provided 6 sunbeds and some sofas under a newly built pergola. There is also a dining area outside the living room which is also covered by a wooden pergola. Upstairs, there are 2 big verandas with sofas which can be accessed both from inside and outside the house. In general we really value the view of White Mountains which look stunning all year round as well as the nearly pristine environment that surrounds our villa and hope to offer our guests the chance to get the most out of it.
The main house is comfortable and equipped with all the necessary amenities. Downstairs, there is a big living room providing a sofa and 2 armchairs, a dining area as well as a fireplace for winter time! The kitchen is fully equipped with a cooker, a big fridge, a dishwasher and a cosy dining area. Apart from the living room and the kitchen, there is a bedroom and a bathroom downstairs. The bedroom has got a double bed and a huge wardrobe. The room is spacious enough so upon demand we can place a cot in this room. The bathroom has a bathtub and a washing machine.
Upstairs there are 2 twin bedrooms and a shower bathroom. The single beds of each room can be turned into one double bed upon demand.
The guests have full access to the property. Everything is private and there are no shared facilities.
Upon arrival we welcome our guests offering a welcome basket and show them around the house. We can be contacted through phone or e-mail anytime and for any reason.
Here are some comments some of our previous guests have made:
"After a busy 3 days in Athens, Marianna's place was the perfect escape. It's beautiful and plenty big enough for me and my husband and 4 young kids. When we arrived there was bread, garden tomatoes, grapes, fresh eggs, bottled water, milk, and a few other things especially for us--I've never been welcomed so well to an airbnb. It's in a quiet, peaceful town--we enjoyed many walks to the nearby market and cafe (1 mile away). The fenced land around the villa was great for my kids to run around and ride bikes that were provided. They loved the pool and the view of the mountains. We enjoyed several days at nearby beaches. "
"We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Eleonas . The facilities are great, & the villa is stocked with everything we needed. It made such a difference. Marianna met us at Vamos a local village & we followed in our car to the villa as its a little tricky to find the first time but easy after that. There was fresh bread,milk,water cheese pies (delicious) waiting for us on arrival & lots lots more. The location is perfect. Quiet, private, & secure. The villa & grounds have lots of character & feel very Greek.. Olive trees, goats, fruit trees, vegetables & chickens. We were delighted to be provided with lots of this fresh tasty produce by Marianna's father who looks after the grounds. The pool is fantastic surrounded by beautiful flowers & the views of the mountains from the BBQ area are wonderful. It is a very child friendly villa. Our 2 young boys loved the pool, the space to run around safely,the wildlife including big friendly grasshoppers resting by the pool, colourful butterflies & feeding the goats in the evening.. Overall a fantastic villa & extremely helpful host."
"The first impressions of the property were fantastic, beautifully decorated to give a mix of the local Cretan tradition and a modern family home. The villa was full of added luxuries, and the attention to detail meant that right from day one we were made to feel right at home. It was sparkling clean, perfectly maintained, and both the villa and the pool were serviced whilst we were there. Marianna, the owner, could not have done any more to ensure we had everything we needed from the very start, we were even greeted to the property with home picked strawberries, freshly baked Cretan style vegetables, and home made Cretan biscuits. We had wine, milk and cheese in the fridge as well. Marianna was always at hand to other advice and information about the area and the best places to visit. We can not say enough good words about her. The villa has everything you need to have a perfect stay in a stunning part of the island. I have come home and already have recommended the villa to friends and family, whilst already planning to revisit next year. Thank you very much Marianna for everything you and your family provided for us, and we hope to see you again soon."
