Elounda Villas was just what we expected and needed. A quiet relaxing holiday! An ideal place especially for couples and families with young children – a little beach for little feet just in front. It is not suitable for people looking for luxury, pools and all-round service etc., as the word “Villa” may suggest. This […]

‘A truly delightful place to stay and exceeded our expectations….The accommodation was simply furnished on 4 levels with 3 balconies, one of which had the sun all day. The bathrooms were of a great standard with none of the Greek toilet smell you often get in hot climates. The cleaner came in every day and […]

It was a perfect location ( even if we hadn’t a car), the family run premises were delightful, typically Greek, and the owners were very friendly, pleasant and extremely helpful. The home cooked food on site was delicious, especially the homemade ice cream, and we wished we could have stayed longer than the 3 nights! […]

After 4 year of holidays in the Elounda/Agio Nicolaios area we found THE real wonderful and perfect place to spend our most precious time of the year -> It´s Elounda Island Villas. The location is very special opposite to Elounda city (whereas it´s just 5 min to walk there), surrounded by nothing but sea, meadows […]
We stayed 4 nights at this wonderful place. The apartment was the far end unit, with only goat pasture beyond. It is very large, with a terrace on the ground level and a balcony on the bedroom level, both facing the bay and Elounda, which is only a kilometre away, but the location is completely […]
It is the perfect place for the most relaxing vacation. Being there already three times I recommend the place for those who seek to relax from the everyday hassle. The food offered is home cooked and very tasty. If you happen to see that they offer dolmades do order them, they are perfect. The family […]
Lasithi is the eastern of the 4 counties on the island of Crete. It is renowned for its mild climate and its overlapping combinations of morphology, from the green plateaus up in the mountains, to the majestic coastline on the north around the Gulf of Mirabello and the south east arid part that dips in to the heart of the Mediterranean Sea.
Elounda is located at a cove on the coastline of the Mirabello Gulf. As it is overlooking the north east part of Crete and the beautiful deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea, it also engulfs the peninsula of the Island of Elounda or Kolokytha as it is alternatively known. On the one end of the longish peninsula there is the sunken city of ancient Olous…and on the other the remains of Spinalonga, a Venetian fortress that carries prior and later local history.
Kolokytha is another name for the peaceful Spinalonga peninsula that stretches within the gulf of Elounda. A beautiful and protected spot, with walking paths and beaches all around, monuments from ancient and most recent cultures. It offers a relaxing and soothing effect to its visitors and also to the biodiversity it sustains. Not inhabited at the moment, yet it has been at the past and still now some very few buildings exist and are maintained.
