The Crete region
The Prefecture of Lassithi lies in the east of Crete, offering gorgeous beaches, and a huge, lush plateau, covered in archaeological treasures and beautiful places to walk. This quieter region of Crete is the perfect place to take a top class beach holiday, yet still be able to immerse yourself in the traditional way of life.
Awarded no less than 32 European Blue Flags for the cleanliness of its many beaches means that whether you go in search of a blissfully secluded cove beach or a large, sweeping beach adorned with beach bars and endless facilities, you are almost certain to find a clean, safe beach. The larger beaches are almost certain to offer water skiing, sailing, windsurfing and diving opportunities, as well as the chance to go deep sea fishing off the shores of the island. There are also a variety of scuba diving centres scattered across this side of Crete.
The inland regions of Lassithi are also quite remarkable. Towering sandstone cliffs are scoured with deep valleys and deep, blue lakes, making it the ideal location for hang gliding, hiking, climbing, caving, mountain biking, fishing and walking, and catching sight of eagles and falcons.
Elounda is quietly becoming a renowned tourist resort on the coastline of Lassithi for all the right resons.
Tranquillity can still be be found with stunning shaded beaches and crystal still waters giving you a magical mix of Greek charm, yet with modern facilities and a great number of activities on offer.
After a day at the villa, on the beach or in the water snorkelling, Elounda town is particularly good place to sample that famous Cretan cuisine. A lively bar /restaurant or a quieter taverna by the harbour is your choice.
The Ancient city of Olous was settled in Minoan times and today its ruins can be found in the sea after they subsided or sunk because of an earthquake or possibly volcano eruption on Santorini.
Within easy reach, travel a short distance by the coastal road with its amazing scenery to Plaka and Agios Nikolaos, two contrasting towns in opposite directions both worthy of a visit.
Plaka just 4 km away with its charming and hidden shops & restaurants from where you can look out directly onto the Bay of Mirabello & Crete's 'jewel in the crown' the Isle of Spinalonga, ' Isle of Tears' the most famous isle on Crete and wonder at its remarkable history. Once a Venetian fortress and in recent history a former leper colony up to 1957, Best selling book 'Island' by Victoria Hislop, Spinalonga is the actual Island
and soon to become a World Heritage Site.
Hard to resist dipping in the crystal clear sea from the pebble beach or driving up into the hills to look down over Spinalonga and the whole bay through to Elounda, a dramatic view.
Plaka is an ideal village for walking as it is quite flat and perfect for ambling around. For the more adventurous there is also the opportunity to walk the coastal cliff paths affording wonderful views of the village and surrounding mountains where eagles and falcons are often seen.
Agios Nikolaos (9km) on the other hand is more vibrant with its fine array of shops and restaurants and much more. Ask any taxi to take you to 'the Lake in Ag. Nik' , this most charming feature connected to the sea by a straight channel in its natural surrounding of red rock and trees will attract and mesmerises you.
At the small open air theatre by the lake locals & visitors alike can often enjoy musical & dance presentations.
You will find the 'Square' at the centre of town with its memorial surrounded by orange trees, where from here in every direction you will find something of interest be it the towns shops, its beach, the lake or the Marina.

"A piece of paradise"

"Great family holiday"
In one of Crete's most exclusive areas with a wide choice of luxury accommodation, Villa Anatoli stands out for its spectacular views, large garden and private tennis court. We've stayed in many similar villas in the Med and this one was particularly modern, clean, comfortable and well equipped. The access track is quite typical and there's no need for a 4x4, but a car is essential. Spinalonga is well worth a trip and take an early boat from Plaka to avoid the crowds and heat of the day (take water as none is sold on the island). The crystal clear waters around Plaka are stunning, but show pictures of sea urchins to the kids so they know what to avoid (we didn't and the local doctor says that she spends every day picking spikes out of kids' feet!)

"Amazing Villa Fantastic Location"
We have just returned to rain drenched UK from a fantastic week at this Villa. Everything from booking, meeting the property manager in resort, welcome pack, mid-week cleaning and the daily visit from the friendly English pool cleaner called Chris was exceptional. The villa surpassed its description and the views were to die for. Elounda itself was quiet but there were a large variety of restaurants and the shop keepers were friendly and helpful.
Don't be put off by the steep drive to the villa, after just one trip your confidence grows and avoiding potholes becomes the norm. It's a minor negative especially when you reach the fantastic villa at the end. A four wheel drive vehicle would be beneficial. Overall we had a brilliant time and would definitely return again.

Great location. View is sensational, without another building in sight. Well serviced, spacious villa. Tennis court a big bonus, pool unheated so bit cool at this time of year! Problem with hot water… More
