We have just returned from an amazing week at Elounda Island Villas. Leda and Costas are brilliant hosts, we were welcomed like old friends and really felt at home from the moment we arrived. The apartment we stayed in was very comfortable and in keeping with the rural location. We were impressed with the ecological […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
‘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 […]
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 […]

“Tranquil holiday in paradise! A real Cretan experience in rustic accommodation next to clear blue sea.” | Aug 2015 | Cornwall
A special family holiday for six adults looking for the real Crete. This place is truly rustic, including the option to eat Cretan homemade food at the Taverna or cook your own meals in the apartments. We could see the lively village of Elounda from our apartments, especially at night but experienced the peace of […]
There is no need to say much about how lovely the hotel is, this is evident from the photos on the hotel website. Even the beautiful views – day and night – can be gleaned from these photos. What really makes it though is the fact that the hotel sits all on its own, away […]
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.
