Spinalonga Villas 8 LocationSpinalonga Villas 8 is nestled in a wonderful spot that strikes just the right balance between remote and populated, on the craggy northern coast of Crete, in the beautiful Elounda region.
Elounda is a well-heeled holiday destination with a smattering of fishing villages, local style tavernas and a few luxurious spa retreats. Elounda village was formerly a pretty fishing village overlooking the wonderful Mirabello Bay, is today a stylish holiday destination, attracting royals, celebrities and dignitaries.
Not overly crowded with tourists, it brims with local flavour, offering a spectacular coastline and clear waters. Many of the little surrounding villages are worth visiting: Mavrikiano, Plaka, Skisma, offering a trip inland through the mountains and a window into traditional Crete life, while the archaeological past of the region is intriguing.
Around the Elounda region, guests can spend days exploring unknown, pretty beaches, hidden coves and caves, or jump on a boat to visit the island of Spinalonga or enjoy an indulgent day at ones of the region’s well-heeled spa resorts.
The peninsula of Kolokitha offers magnificent strolls, while the two most important archaeological sites of Cretan history are unmissable when in the region: the relics of the ancient sunken city of Olous and the Venetian fortress on the island of Spinalonga.
