Villa Elounda Megali has an excellent location; nestled in gentle hillside amongst mature gardens and olive trees, it offers guests peace and tranquillity. Despite the feeling of serenity, the ever-popular town of Elounda is just a short car journey away and boasts a range of fantastic amenities, including restaurants, shops and bars. A little further along the coastline is Agios Nikolaos; this buzzing resort offers a wider selection of amenities as well as fabulous nightlife.

The contemporary villa has been beautifully and thoughtfully designed and combines luxury interiors and furnishings with earthy tones and natural materials, creating a high-end yet comfortable finish. Villa Elounda Megali can accommodate up to sixteen guests across eight spacious bedrooms. On the ground floor is the main open-plan living accommodation, comprising living and dining areas, the high ceilings and French doors let in natural light, creating a huge sense of space. There is a fully-equipped kitchen which has all the necessary modern amenities. Also, on this level is one of the double bedrooms, with separate external access and an en-suite bathroom as well as direct access to the terrace. Upstairs, on the first floor, are a further two double bedrooms, both boasting en-suite bathrooms with private terraces from which the sea views can be enjoyed. Going back downstairs, on the lower ground floor are three more double or twin bedrooms again, both boasting en-suite bathrooms. There is also a further double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and patio doors leading to the terrace area. A handy gym is also on this floor and boasts a stepper, bike and weights machine as well as a table tennis, perfect fun for all ages!

Outside, the private pool is the perfect spot from which to soak up the serene surroundings and impressive panoramic views. For those wishing to indulge in some al fresco dining while in sunny Crete, there are helpful dining facilities. In between Villa Elounda Megali and its sister villa, Villa Elounda, are pathways leading through the untouched vegetation. There are numerous rest areas and hammocks, perfect tranquil spaces to relax under the shade if the olive trees while enjoying a good book.

The hidden private playground is in between the two villas. Close enough for easy access, but at the same time quite remote and hidden. It is barely visible from the villas due to the surrounding vegetation and terrain. Children playing there cannot be heard from the villas, but at the same time, it is less than five minutes walk to get to it along footpaths from either villa. It is convenient for families who will love to use it as much as possible, yet simultaneously invisible to guests without children.
The playground equipment is a Finish design called Lappset.
The playground has:
    Mobile Seahorse suitable for ages 2+
    Balancing beam suitable for 3+
    Swing frame with one Cradle seat suitable for 1+ and one Rubber swing seat suitable for 3+
    Seesaw for two suitable for 3+
    Climbing frame suitable for 4+
    Timber House suitable for 2+
    Abacus suitable for 1+
There are also carefully designed shaded areas for the parents.
