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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
‘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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
“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 […]
‘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 […]
The place is in a great location, overlooking the bay of Elounda. It’s around a 15 – 20 minute walk from civilization, along the shoreline and therefore making it perfect for that quiet getaway. The hosts, Costa and Lida were lovely; very warm and welcoming. They are on hand until 5pm every day to answer […]
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.
