Elounda

Elounda is the nicest cosmopolitan play not only in the island of Crete but also in the entire Aegean Sea. This area is much acclaimed for its outstanding establishments in a magnificent natural environment. For these reasons, its fine Resort hotels, listed below, proudly belong to the exclusive category of the Luxury Hotels of the World.
Elounda is a world renowned tourism resort located to the north of Aghios Nikolaos, having an indented coastline, shaded beaches, crystal clear  seas, and a tranquil and heavenly environment. It is 10km distance from Aghios Nikolaos (Capital of Lasithi Region), and the cutting along the side of the road affords you the opportunity to admire the spectacular view of Mirambello Gulf and Korfos village. The village is built on the southern coast of the Gulf of Elounda Crete, 1km east of the ancient settlement of Olounda, from which it has taken its name.  This used to be the favored place of legendary figures from Minoan Crete and of historical figures of our times.
The four villages of Elounda Crete are spread out along the lower slopes of the approach to the Massif. Pano and Kato Elounda village, Mavrikiano and the new settlement of Skisma, the port of Elounda, bask in the glorious sea as it opens up before them offering its beauty and charm. This sea glows like a sapphire under the azure light of the sky, rose-hued in summer afternoons, silvered on moonlit nights. It is a sea whose light infuses you gently but swiftly, having the power to touch you emotionally. To float in this sea or to observe it from further away is like dreaming with open eyes.

This peaceful sea was used as a stop-over and refueling point during  the period between both world wars by the UK’s Imperial Hydroplane Service. The divine creator, in joyous and happy time of inspiration and joviality, did not skimp here with the colors, the lines or the boldness of combinations, giving a magical impression to the landscape.  Here, lovers of the art of cinema, of the graphic arts, of music and poetry find an exceptional sight. Elounda is a place-name that is easy to pronounce, but difficult to describe. It is a place that can only be experienced personally, to live forever thereafter in your dreams.
