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.
The Aghios Nikolaos / Elounda area
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.
