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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
We can absolutely recommend this little paradise, if you are looking for a nice, authentic, romantic, peaceful and relaxing place with breathtaking views where to spend your holidays! Perfectly located directly by the sea and run by the very friendly host Lida & her parents, this is the perfect spot from where to explore 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 […]
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 […]
“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 […]
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 […]
We spent 5 days at Elounda Island Villas and loved every minute of it… it is definitely not for everyone but if you do your research and are looking for clean, quiet, no-frills accommodation and be treated like family, this is your place… if you are looking for the comforts of cookie-cutter hotels (Marriotts and […]
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.
