We spent an idyllic 10 days with Lida and her family in July and couldn’t really ask for much more from a real Cretan experience. The location is near perfect – on the small islet opposite Elounda itself enjoying lovely views across the bay, especially the fantastic sunsets, from the good size roof terrace (big […]
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.

‘I was looking for a relaxing retreat that was safe for me as a solo female traveler and Elounda Island Villas was exactly what I was looking for. Leda arranged for a cab to be waiting for me, all I had to do was step off the plane and I was taken to paradise. The […]
The views from our balcony here were the most stunning of our whole stay in Crete – I frequently found myself on the balcony just staring at the sky and the water. Very simple, basic accommodation and the unique setting adds to the sense of ‘escape’. Owners/managers were extremely nice, as were other guests, some […]
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 […]
Unspoiled natural beauty, peaceful surroundings and wonderful people. This is Elounda Island Villas for me. I stayed here last Ocotber and definitely will come back. The cost to stay and eat here is affordable, I even could say cheap. But the value is high. Stayed October 2013, travelled with friends
if you’re looking for a rustic Greek holiday, Elounda Island Villas is the most incredible, charming and beautiful location. It’s the only accommodation on the Island; therefore, very peaceful and relaxing. We rented bicycles and cycled to the local beaches each day, which we found unspoiled and wonderful. Leda and her family add to the […]
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.
