Spinalonga Villas 8 is a striking ochre-toned home, crafted with a local touch, together with an uber-luxe and contemporary twist, brimming with designer flair and sumptuous outdoor living potential.

Executed in the local style, with local stonework, elegant cloistered balcony, beautiful pergola and traditional terracotta tiles; this is a romantic idyll, a serene haven of quality and style, with sublime sea views across to the mysterious and historically rich island of Spinalonga.

Finessed with the ultimate stylish outdoor living, with a sleek infinity pool and verdant foliage, fragrant plants, indulgent day beds and elegant parasols, this Mediterranean gem is a jewel in the crown - sparkling seas, stunning coastline, access to local life and craggy hills.

Stepping inside, guests would be forgiven for thinking they had stepped into the glossy pages of an interiors magazine, its airy spaces are executed with open plan living in mind, with exposed stonework, high ceilings, avante-garde artwork for a splash of colour and chic accents of teal offset by natural timbers. A designer’s touch runs through this home at every turn, with eclectic and bold colour choices, understated luxury and chic designer verve, from glossy olive greens in the kitchen to cobalt blues and steely greys. Neither over glamorised nor glitzy, this achingly cool home is ideal for entertaining, for rocking pool parties or relaxed barbecues on balmy evenings overlooking the bay.

Serene accommodation cossets 10 guests in uber-luxe surroundings, with touches of sheer decadence, including the free-standing bathtubs, stunning walk-in showers and simple yet luxurious bedrooms, finished with lavish fabrics and unusual artefacts, brimming with character and style.

With an array of outdoor spaces to choose from, guests have ample choice for evening drinks or morning coffee, while Spinalonga Villas 8 blends the best of local charm and authentic Crete style within a fully serviced environment.

Individual, sleek, cutting-edge and stunningly natural, this home offers a memory-making retreat on a little slice of Mediterranean heaven.

What you should know…

  • Layered gardens, some stone surfaces steps and unfenced pool, so little ones will need to be monitored
  • Some hotel services may incur additional fees, as well as an added layer of pampering and luxury!
  • A car is needed to enjoy this beautiful stretch of coastline, there is plenty of parking at Spinalonga Villas 8, and you can opt to get your rental car delivered to your villa
  • Elounda is known for its pretty finishing villages and dramatic coastline but doesn’t have much on offer by way of nightlife

Spinalonga Villas 8 is nestled in a wonderful spot that strikes just the right balance between remote and populated, on the craggy northern coast of Crete, in the beautiful Elounda region.

Elounda is a well-heeled holiday destination with a smattering of fishing villages, local style tavernas and a few luxurious spa retreats. Elounda village was formerly a pretty fishing village overlooking the wonderful Mirabello Bay, is today a stylish holiday destination, attracting royals, celebrities and dignitaries.

Not overly crowded with tourists, it brims with local flavour, offering a spectacular coastline and clear waters. Many of the little surrounding villages are worth visiting: Mavrikiano, Plaka, Skisma, offering a trip inland through the mountains and a window into traditional Crete life, while the archaeological past of the region is intriguing.

Around the Elounda region, guests can spend days exploring unknown, pretty beaches, hidden coves and caves, or jump on a boat to visit the island of Spinalonga or enjoy an indulgent day at ones of the region’s well-heeled spa resorts.

The peninsula of Kolokitha offers magnificent strolls, while the two most important archaeological sites of Cretan history are unmissable when in the region: the relics of the ancient sunken city of Olous and the Venetian fortress on the island of Spinalonga.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

This charming home is an ideal base for families with children, with the very best of a five-star hotel, with access to amenities as well as the seclusion of a private home, stunning outdoor living and stylish indoor spaces.

Heading around the Elounda region, children can enjoy boat trips in the beautiful bay to the islands, water sports including snorkelling and sea kayaking, long and lazy days on stunning blue flag beaches, horse riding, mountain trails for biking and hiking or a wander around the little fishing villages and local markets.

For older children, a visit to the island of Spinalonga will be fascinating: the last leper colony in Europe, only closing its doors a mere 60 years ago, there is a regular boat service from both Plaka and Elounda.

Children and baby equipment is available on request and may carry a fee, please request at time of booking.
