Spent a week in room 8, fairly high in the "village" of traditional self contained cottages. Excellent facilities, very private, clean and calm. Family run, Manolis owner and front of house, able, caring and involved in arranging everything you could want. Climb to top cottages easiest if you are fit, but worth the views. Food is great and fresh, genuine...

Stayed 10 days and had half board package including car hire (so easy one stop booking). To start met at exit door of airport arrivals with a great welcome and taken to car on road immediately outside (nearer than any car hire depot). Car immaculate, new Nissan, sat nav already setup for hotel, absolutely no hassle, and off within minutes....

The cottages are on a hill outside Zaros in a green secluded area, with beautiful views over the neighbouring hills, mountains and valleys around. There are several walking options for various distances and degrees of fitness. All the interior and exterior spaces are clean and well tended with taste and care. We enjoyed Urania, our nicely decorated cottage and we...

Just spent a week at Eleonas and had a marvellous experience. We stayed half board and were very pleased. The location is breathtaking with views of the mountains and valleys from the two chalets we occupied (we were so impressed we extended our stay!). Manolis is the perfect host and he has created a brilliantly restful and calming experience. The...

We returned again, second time, this time with two other families. Needless to say they returned in love with the place and with the perfect host / owner - Manolis. If I had to name my number one place in the world, this would be it.

My husband and I stayed at Eleona's for a week at the start of April. We wanted to have a relaxing escape and we certainly weren't disappointed. Eleona's is situated right up in the hills, away from the touristy places. All you can hear are monastery bells and sheep and goats wandering past. The scenery is breathtaking and the layout...

An almost surrealistic location: the nature is great, but also the human work done there: small cottages with amazing architecture and nice decorations, but the best is the park - small alleys, nice vegetation, a very well organized place - congratulations! Relaxing atmosphere, the food was very good, but the biggest asset of the property is the staff: all of...

Together with my wife and son I had one of the best hollidays ever! This place has it all! Beautifull nature, pitoresk view on the mountains, pool, super playground outside and inside, startingpoint of several hikings (2nd photo), superfriendly staff that does everything to comfort everybody, comfortable appartments with terasses,...

I would literally move in here and live here if I could. Ok, I guess the best way to say it is that Eleonas is a really special place. The owner has put a tremendous amount of care and love into every aspect of this little cottage resort. It feels absolutely tucked away, up in the mountains outside Zaros, the...

We like to visit new places, so searched the internet for a holiday that would match our experience of Eleonas back in 2014. After a lot of research we just couldn't find anywhere in the Mediterranean/Southern Europe that offered a similar kind of holiday and the same value for money. The whole package is just right for families or couples...
