Villa Location
Villa Eleni is set amongst olive groves with a view of the Mediterranean in the distance. It is on the outskirts of the village of Pigi with a few shops and tavernas being just a short drive away. In the opposite direction is Adele Kambos Beach, which is also just a short drive away. The villa is a great choice for anyone wanting to experience Cretan village life. A 20 minute drive will take you to Rethymnon where there is a good number of shops, restaurants and a beach.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

There is a mini market and a supermarket in Pigi Village, less than 5 minutes' drive away. For a more varied choice go the vibrant market town of Rethymnon, which has several shops that range from designer to high street names.

Bars and restaurants

There are some local tavernas in Pigi Village which are ideal for experiencing real Cretan cuisine. Alternatively, in Rethymnon, you'll be spoilt for choice of where to eat. There's an array of fish tavernas and cafes around the small picturesque Venetian harbour, which are all lined along the waterfront where you can also see the fishing boats.


The closest beach to Villa Eleni is Adele Kambos which is a mix of sand and shingle with some sunbeds and umbrellas, just a short drive away. The sandy beach of Rethymnon and its clear blue sea is less than 6 miles away.

Family fun

If you are looking for a spot of competition, then why not take to the go-kart track or crazy golf course in Platanias and Adele Kambos? Bicycle hire is also very popular and a great way to explore the local villages.

Places of interest

There are many places to visit locally. The village of Vrisses is well-known for its cheese, honey and yogurt, which is produced locally in the area, a 35 minute drive away. Lake Kournas is a fresh water lake, surrounded by mountains and well worth a visit. You can hire a pedalo and enjoy the spectacular scenery.


The main 18-hole golf course is located just outside the resort of Hersonissos on the eastern side of the island.

Other activities

The Samaria Gorge is famous for its 10 mile trail and attracts many visitors every year. Rare birds of prey, the indigenous Kri Kri goats and extraordinary flora and fauna are just some of the reasons this is a protected nature reserve. It's also not for the faint hearted! Preparation and sturdy footwear are key to making it an unforgettable experience in a good way!


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Activities and things to do
Go Kart Tracks
There are several go kart tracks suitable for children in the resorts of Chania and Rethymnon. They are smaller tracks and smaller karts geared especially for budding Formula 1 drivers!
Scuba Diving
Registered Paddy scuba diving centres are available in many resorts offering diving in caves at night, wall diving, as well as deep diving. In-experienced divers can catered for at selected locations. A pick up service is available to the venue.

Ten Pin Bowling
There are two Ten Pin Bowling alleys in the Chania area for days when all the family want to escape the sun baked beaches.
The Crete Golf Club
As Crete is a very mountainous island, there is just one 18 hole golf course in Hersonissos on the east of the island. It has a desert style layout and is very well maintained. It would take about an hour and a half to get to the golf course and all equipment can be hired on site.

Beautiful villa set in an amazing location with very good standard of accommodation. The owners were lovely and Manolis turned up almost daily to manage the gardens and pool, and also to bring baskets of fresh produce from his farm. A wonderful welcome and great base for a holiday.

Customer Rating


Susan Dyer, 31-Mar-2015

Villa Eleni was idyllic. The views of the snow capped mountains and the sea cannot be captured well enough by camera and at this early point in the year we were surrounded by wild flowers and bird song. The sunsets were magnificent and once the sun had gone down we could watch the bats dipping down over the pool. We could walk into Pigi for simple shops and bars and a short drive took us to other restaurants and shops. The owners of the villa were very welcoming. It was easy to drive to many local attractions but we were so lucky with the weather that we didn't actually venture out much as we were very content at the villa!

This is a fantastic villa which is set in a quiet area but close enough to all the amenities. The owner is a fantastic host who cares about his visitors. The villa is comfortable and spotless and Manolis keeps providing fruit and vegetables for you to use. Probably the best villa we have stayed in.

We have used Villa Plus for many years now. Villa Eleni in Crete is by far the best villa that we have stayed in. The Rep Sally was brilliant with useful suggestions of where to visit. Manilos and Eleni the owners were perfect hosts and supplied a variety of fresh fruit and olive oil for us to use. The grounds are very peaceful and private.
