Anemos Elounda Luxury Villas
Reviewed 25 June 2014

W e were a party of 6 ladies, who havw visited elounda several times , we opted for the villa as we like freedom to eat out and come and go as we pleased. My sister booked it (good choice) as usual. We found the villa lovely with georgeous views over the bay, you could sit here all day and watch over the sun rise and fall. Despina appeared with goodies that we all loved, she was very entertaining with her stories. The villa had everything you could have wanted . It would be helpful to have brochures of things to do and takeaway menus if you need to stay in and chill. The villa is only 5 mins from elounda by taxi so is very handy. We hired cars to come and go, there is an Lidl supermarket about 10mins away so you can stock up on wine and fresh fruit. All in ala a lovely peaceful holiday in a lovely setting, ps a hot tub overlooking the bay would be really special.

Room Tip: all rooms ok top room better views

Yet another fantastic stay, stopped now in meltemi and the avra, what ever your situation George and Despina can cater for you, book it and you won't be disappointed. Views to die for from all three villas , great pool areas, barbecue facilities, sun beds etc, daily maid service, kitchens are great for your breakfast, lunch or dinner, a car is recommended but cost only € 6 into town where every restaurant will serve you a great meal, have not had one bad one during our six stays in elounda, previously stopped in all the 5 star hotels in elounda but you can't beat the privacy of your own 5 star villa

There are three villas under the Anemos umbrella, all are independent and private of each other.

We stayed in Avra which consists of a villa with a twin on the ground floor and a double with en-suite shower room and large balcony on the first floor. The villa has views of the sea, a large garden with very nice dining area and good sized pool with ladder steps.

Avra also has a separate two bedroomed apartment underneath the villa which has its own entrance with no view of the sea but has sliding glass doors to an outside seating area with table and chairs adjacent its entrance door. This apartment would be ideal for extended family or teenage family members, as they still have use of the pool, garden etc.

There is a car port for all villas which gives shade too. Anemos stands for winds in Greek and there can be a good breeze at this area of the island. Some days it was quite strong but laid on a sun bed didn't effect us! We just kept the pool inflatables/toys safe overnight and when we were out exploring.

It is located between Agios Nikolaos and Elounda, only 3 minute drive east of Elounda or 10 minutes west of Agios Nikolaos.

We booked this with George and he was charming, all communication by email, it almost seemed a shame not to meet him, however Despina was lovely, welcoming us with a glorious hot lemon chicken meal on our arrival evening with a large Greek salad. She came by a number of times in our fortnight stay dropping treats in for us. George arranged for somebody to meet us off the catamaran from Santorini - with our 206 car hire which was included in the villa rental - and we followed them to the villa instead of us trying to find it in the dark with instructions.

We were only disappointed to find that there was no BBQ as quoted on their website and we had to buy and build one on our second day so that we could enjoy outdoor cooking. The website also states there is a CD player with lots of CDs, there wasn't so that or an iPod speaker would be helpful. There is A/c in every room though the unit for the top floor bedroom isn't as efficient as the others. A lovely lady comes six days a week and there is a chap who tends to the pool and gardens but is gone early.

Elounda has a two small supermarkets in the square. Agios has a Carrefour and Lidl just off the outer ring road. There are a couple of bakeries located near the hospital in Agios which were very well stocked with delicious food. The street market in Elounda isn't worth going to on Friday and the Agios Nikoloas market on Wednesday is good to stock up on fruit and vegetables. We found the stall holders to be the most friendly in the whole of Europe!

We stayed in the smaller two bedroomed villa which was perfection. Top location and beautiful view of bay from every angle of the pool. Brilliant service with everything you need for a cool chill out week in the Cretan sun. Loved it and thanks to George and Despina..we will return for sure.

We returned from Villa Meltemi a week ago owned by George Aretakis and his lovely wife Despina. If you are looking for peace and quiet, wonderful views and more and total luxury go to their website - plora travel. A car is needed which George will organise for you through his company, first timers are met at the airport and escorted all the way to the villa - we are old timers now and just leave the airport, collect the car key and are on our way - fantastic. We travel around a lot to Greece/Spain/Italy et al and to be honest with you after our first visit working with George and experiencing their amazing villas we just cant keep away.

Not for people looking for chaotic nightlife, this is the joy of the Elounda/Agios area, seriousl chill out place. Wonderful restaurants - I will be writing a separate piece on some local restaurants,cafes we found this year and try and encourage people to buy from the local people in the hills.

Have a look - I just cant say anymore than how wonderful the villas are and the privacy and wonderful pool and the maid who transforms the villas back every day to how we found them!

We have just returned from our second visit to Anemos villas. This year we stayed in villa Notos.All the villas are beautiful, but Notos has the best views. The view really does take your breath away. Every morning it took me by surprise as i opened the blinds. The villas are immaculate. The welcome you receive from despoina is wonderful, as is the meal she has waiting for you on arrival. Crete and Elounda are wonderful, but we found it very hard to tear ourselves away from the pool and the wonderful views of the bay. The villa is decorated in a very modern minamalist style., the bedroom furnishings are gorgeous. The kitchen has everything you need if you feel the need to cook. We never did! A car is essential as the beach and tavernas are not in walking distance. Elounda is only a 5 min drive where there are an excellent array of restaurants. We tended to do a large shop for essentials in lidl which is in aghios nikalos. Very cheap! I cannot recommend these trio of villas enough. the view, the island, the hospitality we cant wait to go back. We ve found our own relaxing little corner of paradise!

Room Tip: Villa Notos has the best views and rooms, but Meltemi is equally beautiful

We stayed for one week at the end of June in Villa Notos and had a fantastic time. George and his wife Despina were very welcoming and incredibly helpful recommending restaurants, beaches and places to visit, nothing was too much trouble. We were met at the airport and then upon arrival at the villa we were greeted with a lovely home made meal, wine and water which was just what we needed after our journey. The villa itself was perfect with everything you needed and amazing views. Elounda is a great place to stay with plenty of tavernas and nearby things to do. We will definitely be recommending to our friends and hope to visit again soon.
