“Special House In A Beautiful Location.”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Villa Nikolaos in July and are already planning our return visit. The house has been lovingly restored and has a real rustic charm. The gardens are beautifully planted and really cared for, making days spent by the pool all the more special. It has beautiful views of the adjacent gorge. The owner Vangelis and his family were really welcoming and brought us fresh vegetables, eggs, olive oil and wine from their own farm. The house has a pizza oven and outside BBQ / oven which we used almost every night during our stay. The house is well equipped and soon felt like a home from home.

The village of Ancient Eleferna is a small very traditional Greek village which has a traditional taverna and cafe which are only 50 yards from the property. The village of Margarite was a short 5 min drive where you'll find a small grocery store which had everything we needed for our stay. It also has a butcher, bakery and cafe, taverna along with lots of potteries.

Kostas made the booking process really easy and was extremely helpful, recommending a good car hire company and even printing our return boarding passes for us and sending them to the house. We couldn't recommend this property highly enough, thank you for making our stay so special.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Really enjoyable week in the villa which is situated in the beautiful mountains of Crete far from the bustle of the towns. The owner made us very welcome and took us on a tour of the ancient ruins of Eleftherna, showed us the old village olive press, gave us homemade olive oïl, wine, grapes ... The villa is well maintained and has wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. All in all, an excellent Holiday.

“Wonderful Week”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Villa Nikolaos. The house is lovely, especially the outdoor areas and the pool. The view is superb and the countryside is rural and authentic. The owner, Vangelis took us on a fabulous tour of the ancient city and the Arkadi Monastery, and Kostas was very helpful in recommending destinations.
