The property is perfectly situated in a very safe area in eastern Crete directly on shore /beach (round pebbles) in the Gulf of Mirambello, exactly opposite of the marvellous antique Venetian fortress of Spinalonga ('The Island') directly beside the old fishers village of Plaka. The village with his unique Cafes and Fish taverns is a short stroll on the road behind the beach away from the property. A bus-stop is close. The small main village of Elounda is by bus less than 10 min away, the slightly larger pitoresque town of Agios Nicolaos with its unique lake and shopping streets about 25 min. In this realm touching the sea and a beach with crystal clear warm water you will find the place to feel home and fill your soul with sunshine and the spirits of antiquity. The hillside Villa is located directly on the sea above an unpaved road that follows for miles the coastline though uninhabited Cretan nature offering splendid views over sea and mountains. The hiking path E4 starts close-by.
