Built on a hillside, overlooking the sea, in an estate full of olive and fruit bearing trees, a historic two hundred year old building has been converted into the traditional guesthouse “Elia”. The serene atmosphere of the surroundings characterise the guesthouse. Each one of the nine suites has its own character and it is decorated with antiques. Guests may swim in the pool gazing at the sea or enjoy the traditional flavors of Crete. The beaches of Kolymbari, Falasarna and Balos are very close to the hotel.
The buffet style breakfast at the Elia includes fresh local products such as “myzithra” cheese, “dakos” rusks, homemade cakes, jams and pies, as well as a selection of fresh fruits from the garden and from local farms and groves. Guests can enjoy their breakfast either at the stunning veranda overlooking the sea view or in the verdant gardens. Breakfast is available anytime upon the guests’ request.
