The villa is even more splendid in reality, perfect for a family of varying ages.Inside is very beautiful and comfortable, but the star is the stunning pool and view, complimented with a great outside BBQ and dining area, where we spent most of our time. The owner was very thoughtful from start to finish; providing a substantial welcome pack, most welcome as we arrived very late, gave us gifts at the end of our holiday and helped make our last day relaxing. Though you can walk to a local beach we would recommend car hire.Taxis are readily available though. We have been to this area many times and there are plenty of places to explore; Elounda remains our favourite. Booking through Tripadvisor made the process straightforward and Superior villas helped organise hiring 2 cars, taking the stress away of a very late flight arrival. Have already recommended to friends... a wonderful holiday.....hope to return!
I stayed here with my husband, 2 children ages 6 and 4 and also some other family members in June, would could not have had better stay.
For a start the villa is spectacular just as you see on the pictures, the setting and the view are breathe taking. The location is great, a very short walk to the beach, my husband and I walked for around 30 minutes into the centre but used a taxi with the children. We also took a taxi to Elounda swell which is a small fishing village, taxis are easy to get from the Villa and are cheap to get around,
The Villa itself is large, spacious and well equipped, and decorated to a very high standard. The pool and garden area is lovely with comfortable loungers and lots of great outdoor seating for eating.
A huge credit really goes to the owners, Niko and his wife went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. We arrived to a full fridge of food and drinks which was most welcomed after arriving late and having small hungry children, we got to sample some of his own olive oil which me makes himself too which is too die for.
Niko even took us on a tour around the town the following day so we could get our bearings, which was fantastic to have a local show you the best places to eat also.
Overall the villa was superb and we will be retuning again in the near future for sure.
A delightful, relaxing, beautiful place with breathtaking views..it's great if you are looking for peace, quiet and privacy + good location, close to beach (less than 5min), everything in walking distance (around 20 min). Villa is beautifully designed,equipped with everything you need, spacious rooms, extremely comfortable beds with quality linen. Very welcoming and friendly owners Nikos and wife , everything was more than perfect, thank you!! Will stay again :-)
Our stay at Villa Bellelen was absolutely perfect. Our hosts greeted us upon arrival and gave us a quick tour. They were so fantastic and provided us with a list of places to visit, things to do and restaurants to eat at. We arrived to a fully stocked kitchen including beer and wine - exactly what we wanted to get our hands on after our travels. The villa is perfection. What you see in the pictures is spot on! I visited with my partner and our families and the space was exactly what we were after. There was ample room for privacy and great spaces for us to all spend time together. The kitchen and living room are open concept which was perfect for spending time together and the outdoor dining area and BBQ was perfect for late night dinners and drinks around the pool. The villa is brand new with amazing amenities and finishings which made our vacation feel even more luxurious. The views of the sea are breathe taking, the pool and surroundings were surreal and the sun sets were out of this world. There were a total of five (5) of us staying in the villa and we all agreed we would come back again. We were very surprised and happy to find out that we had cleaners come every other day to change our bed linens, towels and to do a quick tidy of the villa. We also had a pool boy come every two days to ensure the pool was cleaned. We literally had to do nothing other than relax and enjoy our time together. We were happy that we had rented a car as it made getting around the island much easier and allowed to see the different areas of Crete and explore the local culture. Regardless of where you stay, we felt that a car would be needed in Agios Nikolaos. When we left the villa our hosts provided us with a small departing gift that was local to the area. Overall, we highly recommend this villa for a group of friends, or a family (with or without kids). We cannot wait to go back!
