40 km away from Heraklion, at the foothill of Idi Mountain and just at the entrance of Zaros canyon, the traditional houses of Eleonas are located within a 2 hectars property full of olive groves and other plants to make you enjoy your holiday in Crete, in a place next to the nature.

It is composed of 10 houses with a loft and 10 houses at one level, all built with respect to the local architecture and scattered in a natural verdurous environment of unique beauty.

At the farm’s entrance, you will find a lobby-reception which is located at the main building, a cosy bar-living room with a fireplace as well as one traditional tavern where you may taste the best traditional specialties, cooked with the most pure and fresh ingredients from the farm’s garden, including the olive oil which is of their own production. 

Breakfast, which is served in the same room, is also home made and rich. When the weather is good the pension’s external areas are designed in a way that you may rest and enjoy the natural landscape with a home-made specialty or breakfast.

Do not miss a refreshing dive into the pension’s swimming pool!

Customer Reviews

Schroeder S. / France / May, 2016
Séjour merveilleux dans un très beau site de montagne en pleine nature. Une équipe très professionnelle et pleine d'attentions . Des services et un restaurant impeccables. Plein de possibilités d'excursions très variées (côte, archéologie, gorges etc ...) Merci Manuel !

Hugues T. / France / July, 2012
Manoli est aux petits soins comme l'ensemble de son personnel et particulièrement en restauration. La qualité de l'hébergement demeure avec un environnement naturel intact. Les 20 habitations qui composent la propriété sont harmonieux et de très bon confort. Lors de nos échanges avec Manoli, nous lui avons dit que nous espérions qu'il n'augmente pas sa capacité d'hébergement car la tranquillité et la convivialité au restaurant et en piscine en pâtiraient.  Donc, parfait !

Patricia L. / France / October, 2007
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour à ELEONAS ZAROS, l'accueil est très bien. Nous avons particulièrement aimé le petit déjeuner traditionnel et le dîner du soir et recommandons cet endroit.

Lidia D. / France / September, 2007
Nous avons particulièrement apprécié notre séjour à Eleonas Zaros en septembre. La maisonnette nous a beaucoup plu car on pouvait profiter de la terrasse à l'étage supérieur qui nous procurait une jolie vue sur les montagnes environnantes, celle inférieure était parfaite pour un peu plus de fraicheur car ombragée par des rosiers et d'autres jolies plantes. Le calme jour et nuit, un endroit parfait pour se relaxer. La nuit tombée, les étoiles et les constellations se dessinent et on a presque l'impression de les toucher ! Je recommanderai ce lieu à mes amis et ma famille sans hésitation.

Christophe & Nathalie D. / France / August, 2007
Grâce à vous et pour la seconde année consécutive, nous avons passé un excellent séjour . Vos hébergements sont de très bonne qualité et l'accueil parfait. Une mention spéciale pour Eleonas Zaros où nous avons trouvé une belle piscine et un cadre magnifique.

Famille Dominique B / France / August, 2007
L'ensemble Eleonos Zaros est très bien conçu, et agréable pour un séjour familial. L'accueil était chaleureux et les employés avaient aussi à cœur de rendre service.
