We have just enjoyed a week in Leonidas House which is very quaint and rustic. The view from the upstairs terrace is stunning and the outdoor kitchen is a bonus as cold drinks are on hand and a simple meal can be cooked outside. The photo's on 'The Traditional Homes and Villas of Crete' website are slightly misleading as they feature other properties mixed in with it (2 photo's are the wrong way round!) and we were disappointed that the pool featured on this page does not relate to Leonidas house. But it was still very homely & unusual. It is a pleasant walk into Elouda town, down a winding lane and lots of steps through the village or down the hill and along the shore- both lovely ways to start the day. The nearby taverna is full of locals who made us feel very welcome & we enjoyed their food (see 'The Hope' review)
