Greece has taken all precautions at a very early stage to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. This has resulted in relatively few people in Greece being infected with covid-19 at this time. As you begin to consider planning your next summer vacation, we are offering our guests a flexible “book now, stay later” policy, aiming to make your experience easier and more accessible.
As life is gradually getting back to normal, our guests’ health and comfort remain our highest priorities in Elounda Olea. Elounda Olea consists of a small team of permanent employees that is carefully instructed with the new stringent practices on Covid-19. Our villas and apartments are designed to provide fully secured and well-maintained private spaces, while hygiene and cleanliness are a very important aspect of our service. In order to safeguard our high standards, we are enforcing some additional measures that will remain in effect for the whole season.
Please find below a list of information on our villas, along with plans and routines that we enforce in order to ensure the health, safety and maximum well-being of our guests and team members:
· All our villas and apartments are private and autonomous with separate individual entrances and thus guarantee no physical contact with other guests.
· All villas & apartments are self-catering and fully equipped, enabling guests to avoid unnecessary public contacts.
· Daily maintenance of the private pools and shared pool and disinfection through chlorination is carried out by certified professionals.
· No physical contact with public indoor spaces (reception, lobby etc.) is needed during arrival and stay. Guests are welcomed in an open space and led directly to their villa/apartment.
· To date, Crete has 10 cases of Covid-19 and the area of Lasithi only 2 cases of Covid-19.
· There is a strict 24 hour unoccupancy gap between check-out and the next check-in.
