I stayd here 4 yrs ago with my daughters and parents. We booked 3 days before going. Was very cheap. It's a beautiful place and Penelope is a lovely woman she and her family made us feel part of her family. Her mum makes amazing cakes. We were there two weeks and loved ever part of it. Would go again...

Our first impression was what a lovely little complex, traditionally Greek, with cockerels cock a doodling and a backdrop of hills and the most amazing view of Mirabello! I was just waiting for Anthony Quinn to pop out to say hello! Seriously, if you want a back to basics Greek experience then Penelope is the place to be. You will...

We got back from Penelope (Pinelope) last night, so I thought I'd get it down while I remembered. Much of what I wanted to write has already been written - I'll agree with pippaluc wholeheartedly - this is a little gem that I'm sort of loathe to share.... To sum up our own observations - yes, it is basic. There's...

We've just spent two lovely weeks at Penelope. It's wonderfully peaceful and quiet, the only noise coming from some chickens, goats and occasional dog barking. Some people said that they found the cockerel and / or the dogs a problem, but we didn't. It is slightly up the hill with a great view down into Elounda, and across the bay...

We arrived on the outskirts of Elounda and were dropped off by the coach following a 2hr transfer (said 57mins in the brochure); it sounds awful but was a pleasant journey on a lovely air-conditioned coach. Penelope met us and took us to the accommodation in her car as the bus can't get up the narrow road, and the cases...

Having spent a week in the pinelope appts elounda I have to say the stay has been very good. The rooms although basic are equipped with everything you need. There is air conditioning at a small daily cost. The pool is of a reasonable size and only 1.5 m deep all over so is ideal if cannot swim well. Also...
