Villa Description
Swimming pool, pool terrace and sunbathing area

Your private infinity pool is nestled within the hillside facing the Aegean Sea, to make the most of the coastal views. There are plenty of sunbeds and space to relax, as well as a raised terrace to one side, with a small bistro table and chairs. The poolside chillout area has rattan sofas, which is the perfect spot for a sundowner. Plus, you'll have your own portable BBQ and can tuck into your grilled delights in the indoor dining area, while enjoying the same fantastic sea views.


The approach to Villa Elounda Pelagos is via a steep driveway, but it's worth it for the views at the top! There's room for 1 hire car in the parking area, which is shared with Villa Elounda Senses. Access to the villa is on the same level and due to the hillside location, you enter the villa via the first floor.

Due to the very steep incline on approaching the villa, mid-size hire cars only (Group 1C or 1D) should be hired.

Living space and terrace

The inviting open plan living area has large patio doors, which fill the room with natural light. There's plenty of seating around the flat screen TV, a feature fireplace, as well as a dining table and chairs. It's a great social space where you can make the most of the sea views. The well-equipped kitchen is tucked away in one corner, with everything you'll need for a comfortable stay. The adjoining terrace leads to a small L-shaped staircase with 14 steps down the pool area.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Whichever of the 3 bedrooms you choose, you'll wake up with a sea view - it doesn't get much better than this! On the first floor, there are 2 bedrooms - a double and a twin - both with access to a shared balcony and uninterrupted coastal views. Downstairs, on the ground floor, there is a further double bedroom with direct access to the ground floor terrace and steps leading down to the pool area. There are also 2 separate bathrooms - one on each floor. The bathroom upstairs is particularly spacious and sea-facing, with a corner bath, double sinks and separate shower cubicle.

This villa is registered and licenced by EOT Greek licensing association. This number is: 1040K123K0318000.

Villa Location
Villa Elounda Pelagos is located on the outskirts of Elounda, perched on a hillside, with incredible countryside and sea views. The resort is well-known for its 5 star hotels scattered along the coastline below. The centre of the resort is just a 15 minute drive away, with a sandy beach and a variety of waterfront restaurants and bars. Plus, Spinalonga Island, one of Crete's most famous tourist attractions, is also within 25 minutes' drive. You can get a boat across from the quaint village of Plaka, from Elounda Harbour or Aghios Nikolaos if you fancy a longer boat trip.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The centre of Elounda is about a 15 minute drive away, with a selection of mini markets where you can purchase all of your daily essentials. For a wider choice, the vibrant town of Aghios Nikolaos is around 20 minutes by car, where there is a selection of larger supermarkets to choose from.

Bars and restaurants

The seaside resort of Elounda has a small, attractive harbour with a variety of waterside restaurants and bars. The neighbouring resort of Aghios Nikolaos has a real cosmopolitan feel, combining traditional architecture with modern touches. Lake Vouilismeni is the centre point, lined with cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes.


There are a number of small beaches close by, including the Elounda Breeze Hotel Beach, just 500 yards away, which can be accessed via public paths that run through hotel grounds. The sandy beach of Elounda is also 5 miles away from the villa, with a variety of cafes and tavernas close by. Further afield, there are many more beaches to choose from including Ammoudara where there's water sports available, whilst further east there is the long sandy beach of Voulisma Beach, in Istron.

Family fun

A tourist train runs between Elounda, Plaka and Aghios Nikolaos, providing you the opportunity to sample some of the small local villages, as well as the magnificent views from the road running from Elounda to Aghios Nikolaos. Or there's the glass bottomed boat at Aghios Nikolaos, taking you around the surrounding waters of Mirabello Bay. You may be lucky and see one of the Caretta carreta loggerhead turtles.

Places of interest

The famous Spinalonga Island is just 25 minutes' drive from the villa and a trip to see this is a must. You can get a boat across from the charming resort of Plaka. This fascinating site has much of the village remains intact. Wander the cobbled streets, discover the history of Spinalonga and take in the panoramic views.

The Dikti Caves, on the Lassithi Plateau, are also worth a visit where myth tells us the Greek God Zeus was born. Plus, there's the Minoan Palace of Knossos, on the outskirts of Heraklion, as well as the newly renovated archaeological museum.


The main 18-hole golf course is located just outside the resort of Hersonissos. Or there's the 9-hole course at the Elounda Porto Hotel, which is closer to the villa.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.
