4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms
The Residence 4 bedroomed villa OverviewThe Residence 4 bedrommed villa is a charming, design-led villa in a peaceful spot in Elounda, Crete. It's the perfect combination of solitude, tranquillity and luxury. An intimate setting in a prime location – overlooking the azure Aegean and sweeping bay below – this is a family-friendly holiday at its finest. Looking out from your private pool terrace or bedroom, see if you can spot the crumbling Venetian Castle on the island of Spinalonga – the setting for the bestselling novel ‘The Island’.
Perhaps the best way to describe this villa would be glossy and sleek. Residence 4 takes its style cues from Greece, Carpath and Syria, and is decorated by a designer in calming earthy hues. It features hand-picked local art and hand-crafted wooden furniture. Large windows and doors throughout the villa give you that extra feeling of light and space, and let you truly make the most of those sweeping sea views. Air conditioning comes as standard – perfect for when you need some reprieve from the warm Mediterranean sun – and there’s plenty of seating options, both inside and out.
This villa has a spacious, open-plan living, kitchen and dining room with comfy sofas and everything you’d need for a self-catering stay. The four stylish en-suite bedrooms – two queen and two twins – can sleep up to eight, and each comes with a marble bathroom. Outside, the lounger-lined private swimming pool takes centre stage and looks as if it is spilling straight into the sea. Here, you’ll also find an alfresco dining table – perfect for catching a sunset while sipping a glass of local wine.
The best of both worlds – the villa’s in an intimate spot, yet you have access to the resort facilities, inclusion a supersized outdoor swimming pool, kid’s pool and a delicatessen mini market. When you’d like to go exploring, the area’s best beaches are on your doorstep. The villa is also close to the charming fishing villages of Plaka and Elounda. At the latter, there’s a marina lined with cafes and tavernas, as well as markets and shops. From here, you can hop on a boat to Spinalonga Island.

The Residence 4 bedroomed villa LocationElounda is a picturesque coastal village on the 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 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 feel like exploring other further, Santorini is also 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.
