relaxing break

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful villa with the WoW factor. Had a great family holiday here, if I could make one improvement it would be that the pool would be heated, we went in April and really was too cold to use :-( other than that we had a great quality time with the family. Thank you

Spectacular Villa and pool, friendly and helpful staff, (car essential)

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a stunning Villa! We arrived very late eve due to a flight delay but we're still met near the Villa and shown around. First and lasting impressions are fantastic, it's a stunning property, the pool, garden and bar/barbie area outside are really well kept and lovely. Inside the two lower bedrooms are massive and luxurious with doors leading straight out to the garden and pool. The next floor up is the living area and kitchen again these are fantastic with a covered outside area to sit as well. The upper floor bedrooms are smaller but well equiped. Its a quirky design almost as though it was two mirror image sides joined together, there are several small stairs to the various levels (without handrails) and there's plenty of space and various shower rooms and it's well equipped. The view out to sea is fantastic, it is located about 2 miles from the sea on a hill which appears to be an expanding residential area (currently with lots of empty plots). Because of this transport is a must to get shopping etc so car hire would be recommended although Taxis might be an alternative if you don't wish to drive! We had 7 in our family group and everyone loved it, the pool is lovely! The cleaning team called midweek to sort the Villa and pool and we're great, nothing was too much trouble.

We would recommend this to anyone wanting a quiet relaxing holiday, it is a great base to explore and also has everything you need if you wish to just chill and stay at the Villa. Enjoy!

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful stay at Villa Bella Elena. We went as a group of 10 for my 30th birthday and I could not have asked for a better holiday. The Villa was pristine and had everything we needed for our stay. The area is peaceful and serene, it has stunning views! You will need a car to get around or use the local taxi drivers who were all very helpful and friendly. Crete itself is a beautiful location. Thankyou to the managers who were on hand to help us with anything we needed. We would highly recommend staying at the Villa.

Wunderschöne Villa mit tollem Service

  • 5 of 5

Es geschieht sehr selten, dass das Haus, das man gemietet hat und nur von den Vermieterfotos kennt, in der Realität noch schöner ist. Unsere Erwartungen wurden übertroffen. Die Aufteilung des Hauses ist perfekt, wenn man in einer großen Gruppe oder Familie in den Urlaub fährt. Alles ist sehr gepflegt und wurde während unseres Aufenthaltes 2X/Woche gereinigt. Der Blick vom Balkon ist einmalig. Die Abwicklung im Internet und der Service vor Ort ist grandios. Wir wurden an der Autobahnabzweigung abgeholt und zum Haus geleitet. Dort standen Getränke, Obst und Gebäck für uns bereit, um uns die Ankunft zu versüßen. Jederzeit würden wir wieder diese Villa mieten.

Vielen Dank für Alles an das tolle Team!

We were lucky enough to stay here for a week in August, it indeed was a luxury villa and the owners had thought of everything.

The kitchen was full of local delights as well as herbs, spices and oils. The outside BBQ area was a hit and many an evening was spent with a glass of bubbly waiting for dinner to be cooked.

The bedroom suites were great, very comfy beds and everyone enjoyed the jacuzzi baths! We were 2 families with 5 children, the villa and outside area was so big nobody was on top of each other.

An added bonus was sky tv so we didn't miss out on the Olympic spirit!

The photos really are a true picture of what to expect.

Nikos, who showed us around, looked after us throughout the week nothing was too much to him. He even accompanied us on a trip to the local Drs which he arranged staying with us until he was sure everything was ok.

A car is essential and the villa us only 5 mins drive from the beach with a selection of restaurants and shops.

I would highly recommend a visit and hope to return in the future.
