The Residence 3 bedroomed villa OverviewThe Residence 3 is a luxury, three-bedroom villa in Elounda. This idyllic spot in Crete is backed by tree-dotted mountains and overlooks secluded Mirabella Bay, whose soft sands are lapped by turquoise waters. Set in the hillside, the villa holds a prime place looking out to the Venetian Castle on the island of Spinalonga – the setting for the bestselling novel ‘The Island’ – and the Aegean below.
Sleek and minimalist are the buzzwords at this family-friendly retreat. The villa’s decorated in calming earthy hues features hand-picked local art and hand-crafted wooden furniture and takes its style cues from Greece, Carpath and Syria. Large windows and doors throughout let you make the most of those sweeping sea views. Air conditioning comes as standard – perfect for when you need some reprieve from the sun – and there’s plenty of seating options for the whole family. The Residence three bedroomed villa combines privacy, elegance and luxury design. There’s a spacious living room, with comfy sofas, the three stylish bedrooms – two double rooms and a twin room – and three marble bathrooms featuring a bathtub and a separate rain shower. Outside, you’ll find the star of the show – the lounger-lined U-shaped private swimming pool. Plus, there’s a terrace big enough to host a large group of friends and preserving privacy at the same time. The pool looks straight out to the sea.
When you’re not relaxing here, the area’s best beaches are on your doorstep. The villa is close to the charming fishing villages of Plaka and Elounda. Water lovers can go snorkelling in the bath-warm waters, or if you prefer things a little livelier, there are plenty of water sports to get to grips with. There’s also a marina where you can sit in a café or taverna, and soak up the scenery, as well as markets and shops. From the marina, you can hop on a boat tour to Spinalonga.

The Residence 3 bedroomed villa LocationLying east of the capital Heraklion is Elounda, a picturesque coastal village on the idyllic Greek island of Crete. It’s encompassed by picturesque hilly terrain and overlooks the shores of the curving Mirabello Bay. With soft sandy beaches, quality local tavernas and a welcoming atmosphere it’s a perfect place for couples or family-friendly holiday. The main beach holds Blue Flag status and has clear and calm waters that are ideal for swimming. Its sands are next to the promenade and the harbour so that you can grab lunch during the day. Tavernas, cafes and restaurants line the village’s boat-dotted marina, too. Here, you can spend lazy afternoons watching boats bobbing in the water over a cooling iced coffee or try local Greek cuisine like mezes and grilled octopus.
Elounda also offers regular markets, where you can pick up everything from fresh fruit to local cheeses. It’s a great chance to pick up some Greek delicacies for a picnic lunch on the beach.
For fun day trips, a visit to Spinalonga Island is a must do. Although the island is now completely deserted, the crumbling ruins of the Venetian fortress still stand. Boat trips leave for Spinalonga from Elounda harbour. If you want to explore a little further, Santorini is only a short boat trip away. You’ll find plenty of cafés and restaurants along the seafront. Head into the capital, Fira, and wander the cobbled streets. The beaches at Perissia and Kamari, which have also been awarded the Blue Flag, are also a must visit.
For more offshore adventures, Elounda Lagoon is a great place to go, too. It boasts clear waters where you can spot shoals of shimmering fish and explore underwater wrecks –whether you’re an experienced diver or a laid-back snorkeller.
