Traditional hotel for Relaxation and Rejuvenation

On the slopes of a hill with a view over the Mediterranean, in the middle of an olive grove and next to the oldest olive-tree in the world, there is a two hundred year old historical building, which we have converted into the traditional hotel "Elia".

You can search and search for a word or phrase to describe Elia - but you won't find it. You'll have to go there to discover its innate powers of natural serenity. You may want to ponder on your description as you silently sway in one of the hammocks which hang beneath the huge oak trees in the grounds, fed by the underground streams which make the whole of Elia particularly verdant.

A quick glance at the visitors' book tells you that peace is the overriding feeling people take from Elia -that and the memory of an exquisitely-restored farmhouse with its nine enchanting suites This place has offered a peaceful refuge to the members of the Cretan resistance during the stormy history of Crete since 1860.

But today such conflicts are almost impossible to imagine as you gaze our from the raised quests' veranda where you can take breakfast, or swim in the pool  which looks out over this fertile land and onwards to the bay of Kolimbari.

Each of the nine suites has its own character and is decorated with antique furniture and objects d'art - all for harmony with a peerlessly placid environment.

Traditional wholesome food is served, using only local produce, and the entire operation is run by the gently people of Elia, who meets quests and explains how to benefit to the full from your stay at this unique heaven.

A walk around Elia is itself an experience. Wander around the ruins of a Venetian house, sit on the stone benches with their panoramic views or simply wandering through the olive groves and orchards which encircle the main building. Upon your return you may have booked one of the many themed holistic treatments offered here, including use of the Sauna, an aromatherapy massage or a Jacuzzi with rose petals and jasmine oil, and relax of course by the gorgeous swimming pool with spectacular views of Kolimbari and the valley below. 

A short walk from Elia is also the oldest living olive tree in the world, some 2,500 years old. The guests of Elia are advised on a series of walks which can be taken from here, some guided, which can lead to waterfalls, hilltop Byzantine churches- or simply to enjoy rural Crete at its finest.

Near to "Elia", are the beaches of Kolimbari, Falasarna and Balos or a drive through the mountains will take you to the south-coast, famed for its beaches and where you can also take a whale and dolphin-spotting cruise.

 

In order to make our hotel more Eco friendly, whilst enhancing the comfort of our guests, we have made some significant changes for the present season.
We have installed a brand new hot water system that runs totally on solar energy (even on cloudy days!); New energy conserving air-conditioning units (noiseless too!); as are the new completely noiseless eco friendly mini-bar fridges. We are also installing up to the moment televisions in all the rooms; not forgetting a refurbishment of our pool furniture!
Come and see for yourselves!
Contact us for special offers and we look forward to seeing you soon!
