We spent two wonderful weeks at Villa Elia in September 2016. As everyone has said the villas, the village and the local food were all perfect. We find Crete to be a truly enchanting land of kind and generous people, good beaches and so much really great food. Location, location, location! Everything you might need is nearby and Bleverde Estate... More

Despite travelling a lot, I've never written a Tripadvisor review before now. I've never felt it was worth it. Until now. We had the most blissful week in Villa Elia on the Bleverde Estate. Absolute heaven. The surrounding countryside is so Greek, it's almost a cliche - goat bells, olive groves, scented flowers; the local village is crammed with tavernas... More

I wondered whether to add my review as it would say pretty much what has been stated time and time again. This is a full blown top notch ultra fab villa. Spacious, clean minimalist (de-cluttered). Scorching heat outside in June but cool inside with panoramic valley views. Sizeable pool with lots of seating. There were just two of us in... More

It was a real joy to stay in Villa Levanda - it was everything we hoped for and more. There are loads of things to do and places to visit in the area, but mostly we just stayed at home and enjoyed the many pleasures of this beautifully designed and appointed house.

This villa actually exceeds your pre visit expectations from the lovely photos, as it is bigger, more spacious, better appointed, better located, and simply perfect in every way than you could imagine. From the light fittings, artwork and facilities to room sizes, linen, balconies, views and furniture, you simply can't fault this villa. A very generous welcome basket of goodies... More

Villa Levanda is one of the nicest villa's we've ever stayed in. It has a beautiful airy lounge and kitchen on the top floor with great views.

I'm delighted to say that Villa Levanda is probably the best villa we've stayed in anywhere. From the preparatory, helpful emails from the owner Penelope, to the enthusiastic suggestions from Maria, the host and owner's sister, everything is done exactly right. The villa itself is of the highest spec, with a cool, well appointed, open plan living area and spacious,... More

My husband and I spent a week at Villa Levanda and it was just wonderful. Maria met us at night in the center of Gavalochori and guided us to the villa.

These are two beautiful villas perched on a hillock overlooking a small valley of olive groves. Beyond the olive groves nestles the charming village of Gavalochori. Each of the villas has its own pool. The interior of each is finished with sublime taste to the very highest quality. One is modern in style - with clean lines and contemporary art.... More
