This is an experience like no other. So special, it’s in a league of its own.
Vangelis is in his ‘element’, the dishes he serves you throughout the trip are simply stunning; delicious snacks, seafood, cakes, raki, organic wine, meat, vegetarian options and local chocolate treats.
You can fish if you want to, you can swim in the sea. You will see Spinalonga close up and get to hear Vangelis’s legendary pirate stories. The leper history behind this Island is so interesting and the true facts are ‘eye-opening’.
Of course, the best bit is the surprises you will encounter along the way that always raise a smile and you will have life-time memories that many say make it their favourite trip.
Every Monday, Yannis an amateur astronomer, comes at the Heights and with our robotic telescope you can see the Moon, stars, planets and many other objects in the Universe.
Yannis will answer any question you have
Every Tuesday we have a wine gourmet evening. We chose the best Cretan wine varieties accompanied by traditional home made fresh dishes. Each time Natalie will run through the very interesting history for each wine variety and this night is always great fun and often with surprises even for the most experienced connoisseurs.
Vilana, Vidiano, Dafni, Thrapsathiri, Kotsifali, Liatiko, Malvazia, Plyto, Mantilari, Muscat of Spina and many more unique cretan varieties. A journey through taste and history.
One of the most striking things about Elounda heights is the beauty of the gardens; the flowers, the trees and the plants. Vagelis’s pride and he will take you through the many varieties and their uses.
Of course, the tomatoes, basils, herbs, grapefruits, carobs etc are ingredients towards the tasty dishes you will eat throughout your trip but you also get to see the master in action in the kitchen. Vagelis makes marmalade from the oranges, oil from the olives, raki from the grapes etc. Apparently Raki cures all ailments and is the answer to everything; one thing is for sure, you will learn so much and be inspired.
