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! […]

We stayed here for 10 days in Aug 2012. We got the apartment at the end of the raw, which really gives the feeling of being alone on an Island. The apartment is very spacious (we were with 2 kids) and the design is simple and relaxing. What we like most is the generous hospitality […]
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 […]

A relaxed atmosphere complimented by friendly and efficient staff, the cafe bar/tavern offers a place […]
The Elounda Island Villas where everything we were looking for and more. A quiet rustic Greek experience on paradise. All our expectations were exceeded. Lida and her staff were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The little beach across the road is the best kept secret! The accomodation units were simple, very traditional […]
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
‘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 […]
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 […]
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.
