Truly unspolit place with natural beauty!
We came here over 15 years ago In my opinion it is the most tranquil and picturesque place we have been to . We stayed in Villa Elofansi, there is another along side called villa Livadia similar to Villa Elofanisi. There are now boutique villas too. Villa Elafanisi is perched ontop of a hill overlooking the lovely sea. There is a bar within walking distance of the villas which sell amazing crepes and lovely breakfasts made by Mike who is so helpful .
If you want to to recharge your batteries this is the place for you.
The sunsets are amazing, only a small amount of light pollution to watch the stars is something else.
Nothing is too much trouble for the owners, they even chat to you at the bar .
As other reviews have said it is rocky but there are lots of places you can find to swim around, some places are very private. If you like sand you can go to Elonfansi beach but beware it is very crowded.
There is a small mini market around 15mins drive away, we did our shopping on the way before we arrived.
Sometimes people have reservations about going back to a place a second time but we did’nt ,we thought it was even better and plan to return a third time.
If you want to experience genuine Cretan hospitality this place is for you.
