Modern Self-Catered Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach All Bedrooms En-Suite

The Residence 3 is a luxury, three-bedroom villa in Elounda. This idyllic spot in Crete is backed by tree-dotted mountains and overlooks secluded Mirabella Bay, whose soft sands are lapped by turquoise waters. Set in the hillside, the villa holds a prime place looking out to the Venetian Castle on the island of Spinalonga – the setting for the bestselling novel ‘The Island’ – and the Aegean below.

Sleek and minimalist are the buzzwords at this family-friendly retreat. The villa’s decorated in calming earthy hues features hand-picked local art and hand-crafted wooden furniture and takes its style cues from Greece, Carpath and Syria. Large windows and doors throughout let you make the most of those sweeping sea views. Air conditioning comes as standard – perfect for when you need some reprieve from the sun – and there’s plenty of seating options for the whole family.

The Residence three bedroomed villa combines privacy, elegance and luxury design. There’s a spacious living room, with comfy sofas, the three stylish bedrooms – two double rooms and a twin room – and three marble bathrooms featuring a bathtub and a separate rain shower. Outside, you’ll find the star of the show – the lounger-lined U-shaped private swimming pool. Plus, there’s a terrace big enough to host a large group of friends and preserving privacy at the same time. The pool looks straight out to the sea.

When you’re not relaxing here, the area’s best beaches are on your doorstep. The villa is close to the charming fishing villages of Plaka and Elounda. Water lovers can go snorkelling in the bath-warm waters, or if you prefer things a little livelier, there are plenty of water sports to get to grips with. There’s also a marina where you can sit in a café or taverna, and soak up the scenery, as well as markets and shops. From the marina, you can hop on a boat tour to Spinalonga.

Prices charged include half-board meal plan, for full-board prices please enquire to our Concierge team, concierge@oliverstravels.com.

What you should know…

  • There are other villas nearby, however, Residence 3 is surrounded by a stone wall and is private
  • One of the rooms is located further across the second living room. While this is great for privacy, it needs to be considered when travelling with children

Lying east of the capital Heraklion is Elounda, a picturesque coastal village on the idyllic Greek island of Crete. It’s encompassed by picturesque hilly terrain and overlooks the shores of the curving Mirabello Bay. With soft sandy beaches, quality local tavernas and a welcoming atmosphere it’s a perfect place for couples or family-friendly holiday. The main beach holds Blue Flag status and has clear and calm waters that are ideal for swimming. Its sands are next to the promenade and the harbour so that you can grab lunch during the day. Tavernas, cafes and restaurants line the village’s boat-dotted marina, too. Here, you can spend lazy afternoons watching boats bobbing in the water over a cooling iced coffee or try local Greek cuisine like mezes and grilled octopus.
Elounda also offers regular markets, where you can pick up everything from fresh fruit to local cheeses. It’s a great chance to pick up some Greek delicacies for a picnic lunch on the beach.

For fun day trips, a visit to Spinalonga Island is a must do. Although the island is now completely deserted, the crumbling ruins of the Venetian fortress still stand. Boat trips leave for Spinalonga from Elounda harbour. If you want to explore a little further, Santorini is only a short boat trip away. You’ll find plenty of cafés and restaurants along the seafront. Head into the capital, Fira, and wander the cobbled streets. The beaches at Perissia and Kamari, which have also been awarded the Blue Flag, are also a must visit.

For more offshore adventures, Elounda Lagoon is a great place to go, too. It boasts clear waters where you can spot shoals of shimmering fish and explore underwater wrecks –whether you’re an experienced diver or a laid-back snorkeller.

The Residence 3 provides a perfect family-friendly stay – the villa’s grounds and pool area are privately enclosed with a stone wall, making sure that children can play in safety and in sight. It’s part of a resort so you have access to a big swimming pool, kid’s pool and mini market, too.

The small fishing village of Elounda is within reach, where there are family-friendly restaurants and a Blue Flag beach. There’s also plenty of picturesque walking and cycling routes around the island.

For more family-friendly day trips, there’s a splash-ready waterpark nearby. The region is also known for its snorkelling and scuba diving – with shoals of fish to spot and sunken ruins to explore. From Elounda harbour, you can hop on a boat to Spinalonga Island where kids young and old can discover the crumbling ruins of the Venetian fortress there and learn more about Crete’s colourful history.
