We have recently returned from Villa Meltemi (owned by George Aretakis - www.eloundavillascrete.com) - our third visit. The villa was yet again perfect, clean, fresh, wonderful pool overlooking the Mirabello Bay - you cant wish for more. A car is needed but we are more than happy to drive backwards and forwards to this 'haven'. The villa is cleaned every day by a lovely lady, pool cleaned and there are many treats popped into the villa by George's beautiful wife - Despina.

This part of Crete is so beautiful and the people on Crete are so incredibly friendly and helpful we just cant wait to return.

By way of recommendation from our own experience (but frankly this area is just full of the most wonderful restaurants offering superb food at very reasonable prices) on this trip we would like to give 5 out of 5 to the following:

Christofyllis - Akti Pagalou - Agios Nikolaos - they offer an unbelievable list of meze to chose from - dont be fooled into thinking four of you will need 12 x plates - the portions are very generous and just delicious and the prices are very reasonable and the waiting staff are incredibly helpful and friendly.

Maria's in Plaka - one of the earliest restaurants in this very special village opposite Spinalonga (once a leper colony) - Victoria Hislop wrote her wonderful book with the story of the Island. I digress - we had THE most wonderful meal here - proper Greek food beautifully cooked, Greek music (a must for me!!) very reasonable - fish, lamb, calamari, just wanted to put it in my suitcase and bring it home.

Thalassa Restaurant, again Plaka - they have just opened recently - great fun, right on the sea front, full of fun and colour and a wonderful menu.

We also has a very nice meal in Poulis in Elounda which juts out to the sea - big menu which sometimes make us nervous, needless to say my lamb Sharma I think it was called was fantastic, my cousin loved her moussaka, and the other two were very happy as well!!

Oh yes - and you have to visit the Bakery off the main street into Elounda up a little side road - her baklava is the best on the planet, bread amazing and I always fill the freezer with a selection of their little ice cream lollies on sticks from pistaschio/caramel/strawberry/nut - and so the flavours continue.

Please go there - it is just a wonderful place to visit and stay and you will be made more than welcome.

Book now - the weather is always fantastic in this area.

Room Tip: This is a villa so I cant recomment any particular rooms!!

We stayed in this villa at the end of September 2009. We travelled through Plora Travel (George Aretakis - owner of company and villas with his beautiful wife Despina). www.eloudavillascrete.com or [--].

We were met at the airport and taken to our hire car and then followed him all the way to the villa (good hours drive but well worth it!!) - wonderful service!

On arrival we walked into the entrance to be greeted by the smell of lemon chicken wafting through the kitchen, we were really hungry and this was great to find, along with wine and various other bits in the fridge. We unpacked and settled in and Despina arrived with maps and full of fantastic local knowledge, restaurant ideas, where to go etc - her cousin has a gt taverna on the sea overlooking Spinalonga and the food was to a good standard and lovely waiters.

The villa itself was absolutely perfect for myself and my husband and 20 year old son. We slept upstairs with large bedroom, ensuite shower room and HUGE balcony overlooking the sea. Our son slept in an equally nice double room downstairs with full windows onto the terrace with chairs and table resting by the sky blue swimming pool (complete with shower) - his bathroom was great as well. They provided lovely fluffy white towels, gowns, pool towels, delicious soaps, shower jell etc (Korres - one of my favourite brands!!).

The outside of the villa was for this villa (grass areas with the other 2 villas) was around the pool area with a covered area with tables and chairs and BBQ (make sure you check this is clean before you start cooking - our new neighbours nearly set fire to a tree when they lit theirs because off all the unwashed fat on it!!).

Fatima, the maid, came every day to clean and did a superb job and she came in with various Greek delicacies as the week progressed and was always happy and smiling and very helpful (even with my minimal knowledge of Greek!!).

So, yes - I would absolutely recommend this villa or one of the two either side, which looked equally as inviting. You do need a car. We ventured to Plaka and Elounda for meals out, Agios for more action!! oh! and for self catering their is a Lidl in Agios, which saved us a lot of money on supermarket shopping.

After some more adventures this year we hope to return there one day.

Room Tip: George loue ses maisons à la journée, au W.E., à la semaine. La ville 4 personnes nous a couté pour une semaine fin Mai 2015, environ1500€.
