Elounda Gulf Villas and Suites is located on the north eastern coast of Crete just 2.5kms away from the village of Elounda and you can enjoy the ultimate in indulgence and elegance in this family-run concern. It is one of the most famous resorts in Greece renowned for luxury accommodation and is a favourite holiday destination for world famous celebrities, movie stars, political leaders and other world class artists. Elounda itself is still a fishing village with a picturesque harbour as well as a magnificent view to the bay and the traditional stone windmills going all the way to the Alykes (salt-pans). Built on the southern coast of Mirabello Bay, 1km west of ancient Olous (or Olounda), to which it owes its name, this was the place chosen by the legendary figures of Minoan Crete but now it is favoured by the historical figures of our times. Olous was among the most important one-hundred cities of ancient Crete and flourished during the first Byzantine period. The history of Spinalonga goes all the way back to ancient times when it guarded the port of ancient Olous, but was declared a leper colony in 1903 until 1957. Spinalonga’s history has been documented in several world-class novels, among which the recent best seller ‘The Island’ of the award winning author Victoria Hislop. Agios Nikolaos which has plentiful shops and restaurants is only 7kms away.
With its scenic location overlooking the magnificent Gulf of Mirabello, Elounda has been known as an exclusive retreat for those who wish to have an extensive range of facilities close at hand, but prefer a more refined atmosphere to that found in many other resorts. Elounda is home to some of Crete's finest hotels and it is appreciated that most of the guests prefer the privacy of a villa or a suite to the formality of a hotel. The Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites are a perfect solution as they offer a level of luxury that is normally only found in the finest 5 star hotels combined with the freedom and independence that only villas can offer.
