    Amazing quality home built by the architect owner. Such a privilege to be able to stay in such a nice property. Nice local taverna and great location for exploring other areas like Archanes and Mount Juktas.

Host review score
Electra Boutique Villa is located in the picturesque village of Elia, 12km southeast of Heraklion in the hinterland of Hersonissos. Set on a hill at an altitude of 230m, this perfect getaway invites you to experience the charm and authenticity of Cretan hospitality, in an environment that offers peace and tranquility. The building that now forms Electra Boutique Villa dates from the post Ottoman period and was the residence of the priest to the village for almost 40 years. It has been recently renovated to the highest standards and traditionally restored in order to create an elegant boutique-style villa with modern amenities and facilities.
Elia is a beautiful village spread over a verdant, green slope with aromatic plants, colorful flowers and with ancient olive trees. The village is mentioned in writing for the first time in documents of the Ducal Archive of Chandakas, Elea, in 1373. Hidden in Cretan nature and just 4.5km from the seaside village of Kokkini Hani the whole area is rich in history. The primary Minoan Palace of Knossos is a 20 minute drive, while the Skoteinos cave, explored by Sir Arthur Evans, the archeologist who also excavated Knossos is less than half an hour away. Whether you are seeking history and culture, a family retreat, or a chance to relax and explore this unspoiled destination, Electra Boutique Villa is your ideal Greek island destination.
