‘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 […]
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 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 […]

We had a warm welcome and Lida and her family did everything to feel us comfortable and home. The café is nice located and it offers good and fresh food. We certainly will come back. Doris, Sabine and […]
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 […]
Discovering Elounda Island Villas and Cafe Bar was the day I fell in love with this very tranquil location, it met all my expectations of what a family run, well presented establishment is all about for the traveler to Crete. A relaxed atmosphere complimented by friendly and efficient staff, the cafe bar/tavern offers a place […]
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
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.
