It's always lovely to hear that guests have enjoyed their holiday in our villa. I was pleased to hear that you can still hire the little motor boats to explore the bay. Thank you for taking the time to review.

About the neighbourhood
Elounda is a very attractive small town which has grown up around a traditional fishing village. The picturesque harbour caters only for traditional boats and is at the centre of the town. There is also a sandy, public beach which provides safe swimming and watersports nearby. Elounda has very many bars, cafes and restaurants which cater for the family market. A few bars stay open until late with a disco. The hotel developments around the town are low rise and blend into the surroundings.
The Island of Spinalonga was made famous recently by Victoria Hislop's novel, 'The Island' and it was the last leper colony in Europe. Many of the buildings are now being restored and regular boat trips can be taken from Elounda or the neighbouring village of Plaka.
