little information about this lovely area where not all the animals are
mistreated! See pictures of an animal friendly village in the hills,
Pano Elounda (scenic page 2 - more piks) at suzisunflowers .
Elounda enjoys views over the bay of Mirabello and the Venetian Salt
Pans are fantastic! The famous island of Spinalonga is a short hop
away. The short boat ride can be taken from Elounda village itself or
by a short drive to Plaka, approximately 4 km from Elounda. Last year
we had a 'happy train' trundling up and down to Plaka, the cost was
6euros return, hopefully it is still running this year! Plaka is well
worth a visit, an extremely attractive little fishing village with some
very nice tavernas, a wonderful place to have a quiet drink with
Nikolaos is approximately 15 minutes away.
Heraklion Airport about three quarters of an hour. Situated near some
of the most famous 5 star hotels in Greece, it still enjoys peace and
tranquility. Some of the 5 star hotels offer scuba diving, if you are
interested diving with Poseidon.You can also find scuba diving in
Aghios Nikolaos, not so far to go to dive with Poseidon!!!
A car is definitely recommended.You can rent a scooter or bike, but
some roads are steep and although relatively good are typical Greek
country lanes! If you rent a scooter or bike, you must take a helmit
and wear it, the fine is large and the police are clamping down on this
You can get a direct flight from the UK to Heraklion airport during the
summer months, some of you may wish to take an extended holiday in the
winter. The climate is extremely mild here due to Crete's southerly
position! Crete is the most southerly islands of all the Greek islands!
Unfortunately, at the moment, the flights are not direct and are via
Athens. The plane from Athens is approximately one hour and about
Elounda Heights is the home of the Friends of the Animals, the
Filozoikos, the local animal welfare charity, give a thought to the
sometimes abysmal conditions of these animals and perhaps give a little
help with their fund.
