Guestbook comments from the manager

We would like to express all our sincere gratitude for the lovely short week we spent in Crete at Elia under your careful and tender supervision and very professional support of Peter and Anne.

These pleasant feelings as well as aromas of your fabulous garden and warm spirit of the villa will keep in our hearts during the cold winter. Looking forward desperately to come back to this small piece of Paradise to meet you again next summer time!

Peace, privacy and a gastronomical delight

  • 5 of 5

The property was impeccably presented - a home away from home. Maria could not have been more accommodating regarding our enquiries of the area. The owners, Danny and Penelope have created a little slice of Greek heaven for the visitor. Definitely a re-visit!

A beautiful house! A scenic location!

  • 5 of 5

Such a relaxing autumn break in the beautiful Villa Elia. Waking up in the morning among olive groves with the subtle sounds of nature has been a unique experience. Our batteries are totally recharged for the winter ahead. We loved the character of this stone house and its comfortable furnishing. The service and cleaning were excellent and the people so nice and friendly.

The views are simply amazing! The sunset breathtaking. We want to go back!

The Ideal Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The Bleverde Estate ticks all the boxes for an ideal getaway, tranquil, authentic, sun-drenched and with amazing views of the beautiful Cretan countryside. We very much enjoyed nearby villages which offer plenty of charming, high quality dining and shopping options. with the beach and the Cretan mountainous hinterland lies within a 30 minute reach the estate comes with a wide variety of day-trip activities.

Both villas on the estate are in excellent state and well-served by the local caretakers. Excellent tourist guides are provided.

Superb serviced luxury villas in Crete. Bleverde is known for its tranquillity and privacy. It combines remoteness from vacation flows with closeness to Gavalochori village, one of Crete's well kept secrets. Bleverde Estate spreads over a plot of 8,000m2 and is surrounded by olive groves and overlooking the picturesque village of Gavalochori. Inspired by its mesmerizing surroundings, Bleverde estate is an artistic addition to Gavalohori sun bathed valley. Once in Gavalochori, the Folkor museum of Gavalochori is a site seeing worth your visit.

Villa Elia and Villa Levanda are Bleverde's luxurious accommodations with private pools and breathtaking views of the olive groves and distant Mediterranean sea.

Bleverde is far enough to ensure privacy and tranquillity but close enough to be part of the traditional and welcoming Gavalochori village life. The tavernas in the village are in short walking distance, and the lovely beaches of Almyrida are only 4 kms down the road.

Other Activities: Healthy cretan nutrition
