Amazing Greek Hospitality!
This place is just as advertised. Spotlessly clean with plenty of room to relax in. The front balcony has an ocean view. The back terrace is quite large and has a view of the mountains. There is a nice little beach just a short walk away.
Also, there is a little beach town within walking distance. We had dinner overlooking the ocean from a small Greek Taverna.
Our host and hostess were fabulous. They provided homebaked goods as well as fresh fruit, etc. We had so much that we never needed to go out for breakfast. That was a very nice touch. There is also a washing machine which came in handy as we were out of clean clothes when we arrived!
We rented a car as we wanted the flexibility. Gournes is in between Rethymnon on the West side of the island and Agios Nikoloas. Both were within easy driving distance from Gournes. We wish we could have stayed longer. We hope to return soon!
A lovely, clean, well presented apartment, enjoying views of the mountains and the sea.
After a short taxi ride we arrived at Villa Eva. The building is very well presented.
We were taken to the room by the owner and shown the amenities. A very nice touch from the owners on arrival was the huge plate of fruit, wine and Greek food.
Being on the top floor gives you a lovely balcony to the front with a table and chairs and views overlooking the sea.
To the rear is a terrace with chairs and sun loungers and views looking to the mountains.
We hired a scooter to enable us to get around more easily and to see more of the island. We would advise anyone coming here to hire transport as it is a little out of the way.
The owners are friendly and very helpful.
We were taken to the supermarket, treated to food and even dropped off at the airport when leaving.
All in all we would highly recommend Villa Eva and we thank the owners for their hospitality.
Great holiday location
We greatly enjoyed our stay in Villa Eva 1. It is well located, near a good and uncrowded beach and several restaurants. The apartment was very well appointed, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Eva and her husband could not have been more welcoming, with an initial tour of the area (very helpful), then providing generous hospitality with several excellent home-cooked snacks during our stay.
10 Days on the wonderful Island of Crete enhanced by our living experience.
There are not enough adjectives to describe the absolutely fabulous experience we have staying at Eya Villa 1. From the minute we were collected by Georgious and Natasha and meeting the most exquisite lady Eva, who we found out to be the epitome of a woman of Crete just wanting to ensure that all was well and provided almost everyday samples of traditional Cretan food and drink absolutely fabulous. The kindness and hospitality was exceptional and helped to make our first experience of Crete most enjoyable. As for the accommodation believe everything it says on the site five star rating all round. Will we be back? you better believe it wild horses couldn’t stop us. Efharista Eva, Georgious and Natasha.
Better even than advertised with hosts you would like to join your family
If, like me, you are looking for comfort, convenience and location look no further. Ten minutes walk to public transit into Heraklion, two minutes walk to a quiet beach, one minute walk to a discount car rental agency to gain access to anywhere on Crete whenever you want to go and good food again within easy walking. There is of course parking if you have a car longer term. All this without having to actually stay in Heraklion. Eva and Giorgio are treasures. You should stay here. I will be back and will bring family. I need also to note that the apartment is brand new, thoughtfully designed and s pleasure to come home to.
Fabulous Villa and Fabulous Hosts!
We had a truly wonderful holiday at Villa Eva. From the moment we arrived, the hospitality shown by the owners was fantastic. The villa is a short walk from the beach and there are plenty of Tavernas and Bars within easy walking distance. (We would highly recommend watching the sunset from Paradise Taverna with a glass of wine - nothing better to de stress you!) The villa is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need during your stay. There is a huge balcony at the back for relaxing in the sun or enjoying the stars from at night and also a smaller balcony at the front with a sea view, ideal for relaxing over your lunch! Eva's cooking is amazing - we have never tasted a better Moussaka! We were constantly treated to her delicious Greek dishes - in fact I think we may have ended up with more of her serving dishes in our villa than she had in hers! Would highly recommend this villa for a peaceful, relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable holdiay.
Villa Eva 1, 50 meters from the sea, is located in the fishing village of Gournes which is in the municipality of the famous Hersonissos in Heraklion Crete, in a very quite area, next to the CretAquarium.
