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 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 […]
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 […]
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! Alexis, the Netherlands, August 2012 Overall, there has been a very […]
‘What joy to arrive here from our home in Boston, Massachusetts via England and Athens hot and dusty and to be handed a banana smoothie. It really was bliss, and our villa no. 2 was a very happy home for 10 days. We walked miles every day, swam, hired a boat and explored, and ate […]
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! […]
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 […]
‘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 […]
We stayed in a traditional island villa with great views from the balcony. Peaceful location on the opposite side of the bay from where the village and all the action and noise is. The villa is fully equipped for a relaxed and comfortable stay. The cafe serves snacks and breakfast and Leda and Kostas are […]

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.
