What a fantastic villa. Peaceful except for the lovely sound of sheep bells occasionally. Great pool and local town so friendly. Perfect for a family or couple to stay with all facilities there. Would recommend to anyone!!

About the neighbourhood
Agia Galini is a very attractive small harbour village with some nice beaches, nice shops, two pharmacies and a doctor! there are many nice bars and restaurants in the town, particularly on the harbour. From 2013 there is also a newly constructed 'ancient' Greek theater and cultural centre on the hill overlooking the harbour.

Close to the historical sites of Faestos, Triada, Gortys and Spili, it makes a good setting for the romantic, historian, exercise fanatic, and sailor! There is a sailing school run by an English couple, and soon there will be a scuba diving centre. There are classes for art and handicraft, as well as birdwatching.

The town has car hire, bike hire and tourist facilities, including coach trips to other sites on the island. There are also boat trips to other ne...

How to get there
Airport: Heraklion or Chania: 80.0 km
Ferry: Heraklion or Souda Bay: 80.0 km
UK - Most major charter airlines serve Crete, either Heraklion or Chania airports (equidistant from Villa Eleni), and Easyjet also serves Heraklion from Luton, Manchester and Gatwick, and Chania from Stansted. Jet2 flies to Heraklion from Manchester, East Midlands and Leeds. RyanAir now serves Chania from Stansted, East Midlands and Birmingham, and Monarch to Heraklion from Birmingham. Alternatively there is a very good service via Aegean Airways to both Heraklion and Chania from all over Europe.

For other European countries consult AirBerlin, Easyjet Swiss, Germania, and RyanAir from Italy and Germany.

For car hire we recommend Eurocars for the best service but all major car hire companies operate locally and arrange airport pick-up.
