Without doubt the best villa in this location

We did have a lovely holiday at this stunning villa and the Eagle car rental firm was excellent. The small car worked well around the local roads. They even picked us all up from the airport!!
We may have been lucky not to have any children in the adjoining villas as it was peacefull most of the time. Obviously, getting up the hills to the villa would be a major problem for people with walking difficulties. We did find it difficult to buy good quality food from the shops (both in Elounda and Ag Nik) so we BBQ'd one night but gave up after that.
Nevertheless, the Megaro restaurant was outstanding for chateaubriand and sea bream and the Babel bar for cocktails was excellent. The Mediterranean bar (near the ferryman) is great for early evening cocktails and to see Spinlonga light up at 9pm. The local beaches were not good so we tended to drive north of Ag Nik for the best beaches. The Bouganvilliea had stunning views, was very well equipped with excellent outside space compared to its neighbours. Without doubt the best villa in this location. The welcome pack was first class and saved us trying to find food etc on the first day. Highly recommended. Thank you Sharron

Ticks all the right boxes for Greek Island lovers

We stayed in Elounda at Villa Bouganvilliea the last week in October having been impressed by it's pictures and descriptions in the brochure. We weren't sure what to expect weather-wise from Crete at this time of year but the sun shone brightly throughout our stay and temperatures averaged mid-seventies every day and it was mild enough not to wear a coat in the evening... so perfect really.

First impressions on arriving at the Villa Bouganvilliea was how modern, airy and immaculately clean it was but the real jaw dropper was the view from the balconies and sun terrace which offer a spectacular panoramic view of the bay (dawn is absolutely stunning!). Facilities at the villa are all modern and in good working order and it's located up a gentle hill that's a pleasant stroll from the local village, Elounda. We immediately fell in love with Elounda due to it's traditional Grecian feel, good range of bars and restaurants and blue flag beach. The locals are also a friendly bunch and typical of true Grecian hospitality we were offered the usual delightful extras with drinks and meals (extra dishes and liquors) but what really touched our hearts was how they welcomed us into their village get together for yet more food and drink as we were there for closing night for their season.

The food was excellent everywhere that we ate and would definitely recommend family-run Despina for good quality traditional food. It's clear that the owner, Antonis, takes great pride in his dishes. We found a nice local in Bar Eden for pre-dinner drinks and banter with the staff there and one evening took a short taxi ride to Plaka, a nearby fishing village where the waiters told us all the gossip and shared photos of celebrities who had also recently visited (Rhiana and Lady Gaga no less!).

It wouldn't be a complete review without mentioning the nearby island, that was an old leprosy colony, Spinnanlonga; made famous in Victoria Hislop's book 'The Island'. We hired a boat for the afternoon and took a tour around the island and to some secluded beaches and bays for some deep sea swimming and we even got a very unexpected discount which was a real bonus at the end of an amazing afternoon, thank you Captain Yannis!

Anyway, I think the above sufficiently captures our fantastic stay at Bouganvilliea and needless to say we'll be returning next year...and probably the year after that. We're massive fans of the Greek islands for their beauty, food and convivial hosts
Owner's Response: Thank you Jill - glad you had such an amazing time and also for such a perfect review, look forward to seeing you next October - Sharron & Adrian

From the moment I arrived at Villa Bouganvillea I felt an immediate sense of relaxation. The Villa is immaculate and the views really are stunning. During the evenings we wondered down to Elounda and were made to feel incredibly welcome by the restaurant and bar owners… I would highly recommend Villa Bouganvillea and Elounda.

Villa Bouganvilliea Mavrikiano Alounda Crete

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
,My wife and I have just returned from seven wonderful nights in Villa Bouganilliea it is very clean and was equipped with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The pool area is great with stunning views of Alounda and the sea. On arrival we were met by Lynn the housekeeper who was very friendly and made us really welcome. The walk down to the harbour through Mavrikiano past the Hope Taverna highly recommended try it only took ten minutes and only fifteen minutes back along the sea front and up the hill. Elounda has a pretty harbour with loads of places to eat or just to have a drink. We would like to thank Sharron who was great and very helpful and kept in touch with us throughout our booking and up to the week of our departure. Brian and Angela
