Your villa is a luxury base from which to never move a foot or ....
.... within 10 minutes you reach Elounda's sand and shingle beaches (with sunbeds to hire) and plentiful tavernas perched along the sea's edge. In high season, there's enough nightlife to keep teenagers (or adults) amused for a few days and nights.
Catch a boat from Elounda (or Plaka) across the lagoon to the rocky island of Spinalonga, with its Venetian fortifications and "sad" history as a leper colony. Please ... try and go early (or late) to avoid crowds.
Continue along the only north road out of Plaka that climbs into the mountains with an enjoyable view of the Gulf of Mirabelo. You are heading towards the Aretiou Monastery, one of the most important in the province during the Turkish occupation. This area can also be reached by the road out of Elounda, both routes giving amazing views of the area below.
Watersports are also available in Elounda and Agios Nikolaos. Take a snorkeling or scuba-diving trip and be amazed by the underwater ruins at the lost city of Olous.
Or maybe you would like to drive 5 min into Agios Nikolaos, a small town, was originally the ancient port for Lato, famous for its totally enclosed (and supposedly bottomless) lake- very pretty, now connected to the sea to form an inner harbour. The waterfront tavernas are not recommended!
Less well-known, smaller and more hidden than Lasithi, the plateau of Katharo is reached via a road (all curves) that begins at the crest of the village of Kritsa. A worth visit village as well.
