Situated on the exclusive Gulf of Mirabello - approximately an hour from Heraklion airport - the Villa is in an elevated position overlooking the Mirabello bay. Set in its own quiet grounds with a 400 metre walk to a choice of Tavernas, supermarket and the blue flag beaches and sea.
Whilst on your doorstep are the two best known resorts on Crete. Agios Nikolaos, a lively harbour town with an excellent variety of sophisticated shops and waterside cafés, together with Elounda - a 10 minute walk away along the front,- a pretty fishing village and harbour, boasting some of the world's most famous five star hotels, alongside romantic waterside tavernas and restaurants.
Beyond Elounda is the unspoilt fishing village and beaches of Plaka, from where you can take a boat trip to the famous fortress island of Spinalonga, once inhabited by the Venetians in the 15th century and later used as a leper colony up to 1957. For Golfers there is a championship course about 40 minutes away at Hersonissos.
The Crete region
Peaceful yet set on the outskirts of the quiet traditional village of Mavrikiano the villa has its own car parking area protected by electric gates.
So whatever pace of life you enjoy there's plenty to see and do; the archaeological sites of Lato and Knossos, the traditional handicraft village of Kritsa, the14th century Byzantine church of Panagia Kera, the region's meandering walking paths, boat trips, Blue Flag - (Water Safe) - beaches and water sports and of course sampling the local cuisine.
Maybe visit the abundance of waterside and harbour cafés in Agios or Elounda to while away a few hours by watching the world go by. Or maybe watch DVDs on the 300 channel LCD satellite television which gives you programmes in every European language.
Alternatively just bring a good book and enjoy the quiet and the views when you go out through the patio doors into the garden which has outside terraces and grassed sun-bed areas surrounding your own swimming pool which looks out over the Bay.
Also within easy reach, travel a short distance by the coastal road with its amazing scenery to Agios Nikolaos and Plaka, two contrasting towns in opposite directions both worthy of a visit.
Plaka just 6 km away with its charming and hidden shops & restaurants from where you can look directly out to Spinalonga, the most famous isle on Crete and wonder at its remarkable history.

"Beautiful Villa with lovely view!"
WE have just returned from our holiday in Crete, where we spent the first of our two weeks in this villa. The villa is kept beautifully clean by Rose and Fred, and since we were arriving very late at … More
Ah, too much luggage and Adults for the little car, yes the little hill is quite steep but luckily only short, bet you enjoyed driving up it the rest of the week? And i think you will agree that the views, the tranquility but yet close to Elounda town are worth it. We, together with Rose and Fred, are happy to hear that you enjoyed your week with us and thank you for taking the time to write the review.

"Great Holiday, Lovely Area & People, Amazing Views."
Spent 11 nights in Villa Minos in May with husband & son and had a lovely time. The villa is just as the pictures show & all amenities are just as described. We know the area so knew the Villa was up … More
Thank you for your kind review and are pleased to hear that you had a good holiday. We are sorry to hear that our neighbours had a large family staying there, which is surprising in a two bed villa, nevertheless we are now putting in works to further increase our privacy. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you visit Elounda. Andrew
