A 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 friends!

Aghios 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 regulation! 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 75euros. 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.
