Villa Location
Villa Elounda Senses is located in the upmarket area of Elounda, well-known for its 5 star hotels scattered along the coastline below. The house is nestled on the rocky hillside with a bird's eye view of the surrounding scenery. You can watch the helicopters and luxury yachts dropping anchor in the nearby turquoise bay. The village of Elounda offers a wide choice of shops, bars, restaurants and sandy beach, all around a 15 minute drive from the property.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The centre of Elounda is about a 15 minute drive and has a selection of mini markets that stock all the day to day necessities. The town of Aghios Nikolaos is around a 20 minute drive from the villa and has a selection of large supermarkets with a more varied choice.

Bars and restaurants

There is a wide selection of bars and tavernas in Elounda to that suit all tastes. The harbour at Agios Nikolaos has some waterfront restaurants where you can enjoy anything from a light bite to a more traditional Greek Meze.


There are a number of small beaches close by which can be accessed via public paths that run through hotel grounds. The beach in Elounda is a man-made sandy beach which has nearby cafes and tavernas. Further afield in Ammoudara is a well organised beach with sunbeds, umbrellas and watersports. Continuing further east, in Istron is Voulisma Beach which is a long and sandy. Or, Aghios Panteleimonas Beach that is shingle with some pebbles and has been awarded a Blue Flag in recognition of the clean water.

Family fun

Take a ride on one of the 'Little Trains' which run between Elounda, Plaka and Aghios Nikolaos. Various excursion routes operate, taking in some of the small local villages, as well as the magnificent views from the road running from Elounda to Aghios Nikolaos. The glass bottomed boat in Aghios Nikolaos allows visitors a glimpse of the marine world in the surrounding waters of the Mirabello Bay. You may be lucky and see one of the Loggerhead turtles locally known as Caretta Caretta. About a 45 minute drive away are the go karts in Hersonissos and horse-riding at Arion Stables.

Places of interest

Spinalonga is an absolute must! This tiny island has been made into a TV series as well as a novel by Victoria Hislop. Take a small boat from the tiny village of Plaka or for a little longer trip, the harbour in Elounda and visit the island. For those who enjoy local history, jump in the car and head to the furthest Eastern side of Crete to Zakros. The Plateau of Lassithi is a verdant agricultural area in the mountains, the produce of which is sold throughout Greece, as well as abroad. The Dikti Caves are also worth a visit. Cloaked in mythology, these caves are supposedly where the god Zeus was born. Take the time to visit the island capital of Heraklion. The Minoan Palace of Knossos is on the outskirts of the town and the new renovated archaeological museum is well worth a visit.


The main 18-hole golf course is located just outside the resort of Hersonissos. More local there is a 9 hole at the Elounda Porto Hotel.


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.

Activities and things to do
A trip to Spinalonga should not be missed. This is a very small island near to Elounda which was a Leper colony until the 1950s. It has more recently been brought to our attention as the setting for Victoria Hislops 'The Island'. Take a ferry from either Aghios Nikolaos, Elounda or Plaka and visit the island and the village. Restoration projects have been gong on for some time and shops and houses can be seen in some semblance of their original state.

Horse Riding Karteros
Horse riding is available at the Riding Academy of Crete in Karteros in just over 14 miles from Hersonissos.
Labyrinth Park
As the name suggests this is a maze where the objective is to find the centre and the Minotaur, then find the escape route!! Its great fun for all the family and the route is changed regularly. It's a 3D maze with steps and bridges too just to make it more interesting! Along the way visitors will learn more about the myths and legends surrounding the famous Minotaur of Knossos.

There is also a mini golf and cafe, too for less energetic explorers. Children can also have a go in the pottery workshop where Minoan items are reproduced. An eco-garden with aromatic Cretan herbs, fruit trees and vegetable garden are all cultivated to ecological standards.

Aquaplus water park is split into two connected sections,one for adults including the extreme slides and the other beng for children.The slides are set amongst gardens full of cretan trees and exotic flowers.The park offers from 50 slides, games and catering facilities.They use a cashless bracelet scheme and have a system setup to reduce the waiting time for the slides.Sunbeds and umbrellas are included in entry price.
The Crete Golf Club
As Crete is a very mountainous island, there is just one 18 hole golf course in Hersonissos on the east of the island. It has a desert style layout and is very well maintained. It would take about an hour and a half to get to the golf course and all equipment can be hired on site.
Villa Elounda Senses Customer Reviews

Emma Ridgley, 08-Sep-2018

This was our third Villa Plus holiday and yet again we were not disappointed! The villa was exactly as seen on the website. Very clean, comfortable and well appointed. The views were incredible, and the location was great. You definitely need a mid-range hire car at the very least to negotiate the hill though!.
