Villa in Elounda 4, Lassithi
Villa in Elounda 4 || Sleeps: 8-10 || Bedrooms: 5 || Bathrooms: 5
This villa is built on a hillside overlooking the gulf of Elounda and the island of Spinalonga just a few kilometres north of Agios Nikolaos, the capital city of the prefecture of Lassithi in eastern Crete. It is one of the most famous resorts in Greece renowned for 5***** accommodation and is a favourite holiday destination for world famous celebrities, movie stars, political leaders and other world class artists.
Elounda is still a fishing village with a picturesque harbour as well as a magnificent view to the bay and the traditional stone windmills going all the way to the Alykes (salt-pans). Built on the southern coast of Mirabello bay, 1km west of ancient Olous (or Olounda), to which it owes its name, this was the place chosen by the legendary figures of Minoan Crete but now it is favoured by the historical figures of our times. Olous was among the most important one-hundred cities of ancient Crete and flourished during the first Byzantine period. The history of Spinalonga goes all the way back to ancient times when it guarded the port of ancient Olous, but was declared a leper colony in 1903 until 1957. Spinalonga’s history has been documented in several world-class novels, among which the recent best seller ‘The Island’ of the award winning author Victoria Hislop.
