We stayed at Eleonas hotel on a beautiful olive farm at the beginning of June and loved every minute of our three nights there. Because I don't drive and my partner had decided that he did not want to drive on this particular holiday we decided to take the bus from Athens to Rovies.....big mistake! Although the scenery along the way was lovely it seemed to take forever to get there as the bus goes through lots of little villages. However, when we arrived many hours later, tired and hot we were greeted at the bus stop in Rovies by the delightful, smiling face of Marina. She kindly transported us in her car up to the hotel and we had a feeling of serenity and comfort from the moment we set foot on the hotel grounds. Our room on the 1st floor was all that we needed, two beds, an overhead fan, a clean bathroom with delicious smelling shower gel and shampoos...made with olive oil, and a decent sized balcony with a wonderful sea view (as promised!). There was also a small area with a fridge and kettle and tea. We opted to eat at the hotel every evening and the food was delicious...made and served by the CHARMING hosts Marina and Stefos. Sadly they were rather busy so initially they were not able to chat much but on our last night we were invited to join them for a family meal which was such a priviledge...a warm, cultured and interesting family. Stefos has a great sense of humour! Eventually we gave in and hired a small car with the help of Marina and visited some of the rather charming villages close by (like Limni and Ilios), although wwe would have been quite happy to just stay at the hotel, soak in the country air and read and relax. We were sad to say goodbye and know that we will return one day. I can highly recommend this lovely hotel.
