About Jane Vogas
I renovated this house specifically with the idea in mind of creating the studio area to work and teach. Today I work in my ground floor flat and let others enjoy the studio and be inspired by it's unique ambience and superb views over the bay.
Why Jane Vogas chose Elounda
A holiday apartment with a difference. Quiet, spacious,close to the sea and the village, superb views.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Artist's Studio. Jane is a helpful and welcoming host and the accommodation lived up to our expectations. The views are excellent and the apartment has everything we needed.
The apartment was everything we hoped for; a traditional village house in a superb location.
We were attracted to the property by the pictures and the description on the website and also by the fact that we knew the location well as we have stayed in Elounda a number of times over the years.
The house sits on a hill in the old village of Mavrakiano overlooking Elounda, its harbour, the sea and beautiful mountains.
It totally lived up to our hopes and expectations and we had our thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing holiday in the most characterful and interesting of surroundings.
Jane, the owner was very welcoming and helpful and we very much hope that we are able to stay again.
Thank you Richard and Alison for this review, I am happy you enjoyed your stay. It was a delight to have you to stay with me.You are certainly welcome back any time.
Wonderful house with stunning views
We loved the house, the views and the warm welcome from Jane.
Sitting out and looking across to the mountains and the town was lovely.
It was everything we wanted and more.

Thank you for your nice words and I am so happy you enjoyed your stay, it was a pleasure to have you as guests
Great location , lovely home in excellent town
Great week had by the Willcox family. Glad we hired a car , saw some lovely places nearby . Loved elounda and the area . House was excellent with everything you need to hand , loved sitting on the balcony for breakfast and the outside area off the bedroom in the evening. Nice and windy , so not too warm but had the air con anyway which worked well at night
Thank you for your nice review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay, it was nice to have you as guests.
Lovely quiet spot with fabulous views
We had a lovely relaxing stay at the Artist's Retreat. The views are phenomenal - not conducive to leaving the property! Fortunately it's only a 10 minute walk to the town and the beach for a refreshing swim. We enjoyed BBQing our tea with a mountain view, and hope to be back in future. Jen and Chris
It was lovely having you as guests. So glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.
ARTISTS STUDIO - WHAT A TREAT
Thank you so much we enjoyed our stay
Magnificent views of Elounda Bay
'The Artists' Studio what a treat
Romantic, quirky, cosy so sweet
Top of the hill you stand so tall
It makes you appreciated life in all
The flowers, insects, birds and bees
Rustling leaves on pretty palm trees
Your walls I bet hide a story or two
Balcony views crystal waters so blue
Sound of the locals fill the air
Breathtaking views shed a tear
Morning sunshine fills your bed
'This is the life' it must be said
If you're lucky enough to rent this place
It'll deliver a smile upon your face

Thank you so much for making our holiday a good one. Lady Jane who lives downstairs the owner of the Studio is ever so kind and she will wash your bed sheets, towels and beach towels (all of which are provided) as and when required, your own attire can be washed with the help of a washing machine in your studio. The bathroom is quaint with plenty of spare towels to dry yourself after a lovely hot shower everyday with a gismo showerhead that changes colour, blue when cold and red when hot, gadget but wise, this I rather liked. Good if you have children with you on your holiday, just shame they would spoil it as this place needs to be lied back and enjoyed. Ample cupboard space to hide toiletries and a shelf for your false teeth! Quirky little kitchen where everything had its place, condiments provided, two hob electric cooker, oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, sandwich toaster, cutlery, pots and pans, everyday essentails under the sink, iron and ironing board. TV in bedroom with DVD player and plenty to watch also stereo in the lounge with plenty of CD's. Air conditioning with timer, fan & turbo boost facility (now an optional extra) worked a treat on those hot nights. Oh! & Thank you! for the complimentary Welcome bottle of wine & water with some bread & milk, nice touch. Would definately return one day even though I did leave some smalls in the laundry basket (how embarrassing) Cheers to a good life!!! x
Located on a small hill close to the fishing port, Mavrikiano offers a unique view of the Mirabello Bay. Mavrikiano is part of Elounda, about 70 km East of Iraklio, the capital of Crete, and 12 km north of the nearest biggest city of Agios Nikolaos. The fishing port with its colourful boats is the centre of the popular holiday resort with numerous posh accommodations. Bordering is the main square, where plenty of taverns invite you to try local specialities and fresh fish. The small village offers shopping facilities, a bank, a post office, a pharmacy and medical care. It is also the ideal starting point for hiking tours and trips of any type. It is located between Elounda and Spinalonga Island - a former leper colony, which is known today because of the film version of the bestseller 'The Island' was shot here. Between Elounda and Spinalonga there is regular boat service. Pretty beaches and romantic bays invite you to unwind.
