Once the site of the ancient city-state of Olous, the town of Elounda, on the north-east coast, dates back to 1579 when it was developed by the Venetians as a fortified port. Today, it is a well established and exclusive holiday resort in the Bay of Mirabello, close to both the delightful holiday centre of Agios Nikolaos and the old Venetian island of Spinalonga.
The property consists of 18 Villas all with private pool with
Jacuzzi and some with private spa facilities (gym room, sauna, steam bath),
1-3 bedrooms, and 10 elegant Suites (1-2 bedrooms).
One Villa has four master bedrooms.
They have been featured in numerous magazine articles for their architectural style and sumptuous interiors. The rooms open to shaded outdoor dining areas and spacious sun terraces with quality wooden sun beds, and panoramic sea views. The 3-bedroom villas have individual swimming pools (with jacuzzi) varying in sizes from 30 - 60 square metres. The 4-bedroom villa has a larger swimming pool with jacuzzi (16 x 4.5m), and a gym. It also has a private garden and parking space for two cars.
The interiors have been individually decorated and furnished with great taste, with marble or wooden floors and modern, comfortable furniture. The marble bathrooms have jacuzzi baths, make-up mirrors and hairdryers. In the 3-bedroom villas, the bedrooms have air-conditioning, and the 4-bedroom villa has air-conditioning in all rooms. Each villa has satellite TV, VCR, a hi-fi system, a computer/Internet connection and a safe. Additional services include bathrobes and toiletries in the bathrooms, change of linen and towels three times a week and a welcome fruit basket, wine and mineral water.
