You feel like you're far away from everything in the middle of the sea, yet you are only a 10 minute walk away from a bustling village. Marianna
My mother´s wish for her 60th birthday was simple: a greek paradise – The big surprise: We found one: “Elounda Island Villas” at Spina Longa The whole family, 3 generations(!), stayed at “Elounda Island Villas” for 2 weeks – and the whole family loved it! We loved to experience the warm-hearted atmosphere of the tasteful […]
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 […]
A sunny, light breeze wafts through the balcony into our bright open bedroom, I pad down the wooden stairs and make coffee, returning to watch the morning sea with some fresh watermelon. That or a morning dip in front of our villa, I have neighbours but I don’t feel them, the beach is quiet and […]
What a beautiful spot; your very own island retreat with views over the causeway to elounda itself. Lena and her parents are great hosts and make amazing smoothies and omelettes and the best greek salad. Beautiful beeches moments away. Worth every euro and more!

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
This is a really special place. Not just because of its wonderful location but because of the welcome held for anyone lucky enough to find themselves staying here. The only accomodation on this island, tethered to the mainland by a narrow bridge linked to a causeway, these beautiful, simple villas are the perfect place to […]
‘We arrived at Elounda Island Villas at night (drove from Heraklion Airport). Even though we knew our accommodation was on a little island, outside the town of Elounda, we were charmed by the surroundings and the immediate proximity of the very calm stretch of sea water…The decor is rustic and simple, but in perfectly good […]
We returned here for our honeymoon and we have never returned to a holiday destination, however much we enjoyed it, which speak volumes about this spot of beauty and its owners. This time we had villa number 10 (I think), an apartment with different levels and a big rooftop balcony with sun loungers, a table […]
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.
