What an amazing stay, the villa is exactly as in the pictures, the swimming pool is 1m70 at the deepest, so great even for tall people.
The beds are really comfortable, we had great sleeps, the neigbourhood is really quiet so that helped.
The villa has sun all day, and seing it set behind the mountains is a beautifull sight.
The villa is high in the hills and is facing the seaside, we had great breakfast on the terrace, beware of the sun, getting a sunburn is a lot easier then you would think as the temperatures never went bellow 20° once the sun is up.
The kitchen is fully equipped, and you have the basics waiting for you in it (salt pepper, oil, vinegar, spices, coffee... )
The supermarket is 5mn away down the ill, in a village by the sea, the local food is really nice but they stock a lot of foreign products like peanut butter, maple syrup and magners ciders.
But what made our stay perfect is the help we got from Aurelia and Stavros, they were always available, and helped with whatever we needed with smiles and a great attitude.
We are already thinking of going back and bringing along family and friends.
You won't regret booking it, it's a great find !!!
Me and my partner spent 7 beautiful days in Villa Bellaelena. Its an amazing property, very clean, comfortable, beautiful interior and amazing view in a truly quiet neighborhood. The pool and the jacuzzis are perfect!
We had no problems during our stay, thanks to Nikos, who welcomed us as we arrived.
Its only a 5 minute car ride into town, where everything is accesible, and it's very close to alot of great locations.
We would reccomend this property to everyone.

We have just got back from a glorious week at this property. We were a bit apprehensive as there were no reviews but trust me, it is as good as the pictures show! The villa is beautiful, it's very peaceful and everything you need is supplied. It is a little too far to walk into the town but it's a 5 minute drive and supermarkets and shops are everywhere. Taxis are pretty non existent as they are mainly based in Heraklion Airport and don't want to come out for a small fare but George the owner of To Kima restaurant picked us up and dropped us back one evening,To Kima also has a small beach on the crystal clear water where the villa has an agreement for free sunbeds and parasols with table service from Nicolas. Food is good there too! We even had food from other local restaurants delivered which made things easy when we didn't want to drive.
The villa is stunning, we spent most days by the pool and several evenings making use of the large barbecue and bar area, table football and table tennis provided too. There is air conditioning in every room and good wifi throughout including smart TVs. This place has everything and more!
Niko the caretaker was in contact when needed and met us on the slip road off the motorway to take us to the villa the evening we arrived so we didn't get lost in the dark, he even provided a few grocery items we had requested free of charge, half way through the week he organised the pool cleaning and a cleaning service. He couldn't do enough to help us and his English is very good.
There were only 4 of us staying and we enjoyed every minute but the place would comfortably provide space for 2 families or groups of friends wanting to holiday as the two sides of the villa are identical and very separate with enough bathrooms for everyone! The area is very safe and very quiet with a lovely view to the sea. Needless to say we didn't want to leave and as the place is only 15 minutes from the airport it makes travelling to and from it effortless. This place is a must if you are looking for a quiet relaxing and fun holiday and we are looking to return next year.
