The villa is well equipped, has superb views, a pleasant pool and 2 good sized bedrooms, both effectively with their own bathroom (one en-suite and one with use of the main bathroom). The garden includes a handy barbecue area with all the basics including a kettle type barbecue which worked really well. There are 2 balconies, both accessed from the bedrooms, 2 nice patio/ seating areas with tables and chairs. Location wise the villa is about a 10 minute pleasant but steep walk from Elounda. The approach by car is also very steep and narrow with the locals’ inventive parking making it a bit of a roller coaster ride! There is room to park two cars but manoeuvring is tricky and anything bigger than a Ford Focus or similar would be verging on impossible to turn around. Overall though the parking is better than most in Elounda. For those not in the know, it is a good location from which to explore North Eastern Crete. 2 ‘must dos’ are Spinalonga with the ferry just 10 minutes walk and the lovely hill village of Kritsa with nearby gorge walk, Roman site and lovely church. This is just 20 minutes drive.
All in all a lovely villa and a great location for an October holiday.
Excellent villa in wonderful location
Fantastic view of the bay of Elounda from a modern and clean villa with all you need, including sufficient poolside privacy.
10 minute walk down into the centre of Elounda, 2 minute walk to local taverna and restaurant with spectacular vista.
Had no need to trouble the owners, but they maintained sufficient contact to ensure that we were OK.
Crete is our favourite island. This is the best villa we have found. We have booked this villa for next year already....
Thank you very much Tim for your fantastic review and for also booking again with us next year. I think you love Elounda as much as we do
The perfect house....what a view!
Perfect location with perhaps the best view in Elounda!
The house had everything you could need and was immaculate. We all loved the pool and can’t wait to visit again!
Thank you so much for such a fantastic review Leo, Kay and Family.
So glad you enjoyed your holiday and more to the point loved our Villa - we totally agree we have the best view in Elounda - a view we will never get tired of.
Hopefully we get to hear from you again the future.
Enjoy the rest of your summer

Beautiful Villa with amazing views
My family and I have just returned from a weeks stay in this gorgeous villa. The villa itself was spotlessly clean and had everything you could want for a comfortable stay. The pool was a good size and perfect for a swim after a long day out sightseeing. The location is amazing and pictures don't do the stunning sea views justice. The village Mavrikiano is very traditional and pretty, we loved The Hope restaurant just down the road and Elounda town is a short walk away where you can find a great choice of restaurants. We ate out every night and the food was always fantastic. We fell in love with Elounda and will definitely be returning to this wonderful villa!
So glad you all enjoyed Elounda and of course the beautiful Villa Bpuganvilliea .
We are often told the photographs don’t do the beautiful views justice. A view we will never get tired of.
Hope to see you Susan and your family in the future.
Enjoy the rest of your summer
We have just returned from two weeks in the fantastic Villa Bourganvillea in Elounda, Crete.
The villa is spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished and very well equipped.
Sharron (the owner) was brilliant throughout the booking process and very responsive to our questions. The villa is about 45 minutes from Heraklion airport and Sharron arranged for a private taxi transfer to pick us up so that we could sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We were met at the villa by the housekeeper who explained how a few things worked and also dropped off a few provisions that we had requested (via Sharron) to get us through the first day or two.
The villa is located on top of a hill with stunning views over the bay. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the views from the pool terrace, including sun loungers, an outdoor dining table, a rattan suite and there are further chairs on the two balconies that are accessed from the bedrooms (for even more spectacular views over the bay). All of the furniture in the villa (both indoors and outdoors) is modern, clean and stylish and we enjoyed sitting in different locations at different times.
The pool, whilst not huge, is big enough to splash about or cool off in but the views more than make up for it anyway.
The hill up to the villa is fairly steep and a little narrow towards the top but we walked up and down it most days (mainly to walk off some of the huge dinners we ate!). If you are hiring a car, you will want to make sure it is not too big but otherwise, it’s perfectly accessible.
Elounda itself is a charming place, absolutely full of restaurants, tavernas, cafes and bars. There are a number of shops too, selling everything from the usual tourist stuff to some quite interesting boutiques, jewellery shops and local produce. There are also a few supermarkets which are really stocked (with lots of familiar brands if you want them).
Whilst the village has a great atmosphere in the evening, it is not loud or rowdy at all. It really did feel very safe at all hours.
I must mention the local people too. We travel quite a lot but I don’t think I have ever been anywhere where everybody was so nice. It really was noticeable!
There are literally dozens and dozens of places to eat and it would take far too long to name all the great restaurants...To be honest, I don’t think there is a bad one.
We had a brilliant time at the villa and would not hesitate to return (in fact, 8 am sure we will).
Thank you Glynn and family for a fantastic review. So happy you loved Elounda and Villa Bouganvilliea - such a great pleasure that we have had such happy guests. Hope we will hear from you all again soon
Très belle vue (encore mieux que sur les photos). Villa très confortable et très bien équipée. Excellent séjour.
Thank you very much Loic for your five star compliments, we work very hard to ensure our guests have a first class experience at Villa Bouganvilliea - we hope to accommodate in the future , enjoy the rest of your summer
