Villa JASMINE-Olga Elinika
4-5 persons self catering
Jasmine is decorated in a blend of traditional and archaic motifs including objects of exceptional interest. Truly an Aladdin’s cave.
The spacious front aspect lounge, full of byegone curios of all kinds and descriptions, with its open fireplace and stone arch is a delight. An archway leads to the two bedrooms (one double and one twin), a bathroom with half-size bath & shower and wc. It has a separate breakfasting kitchen with full-size cooker & fridge. There is even a lemon tree sited outside the Kitchen door. The huge front aspect sea-facing verandah is surrounded by fragrant flowers and herbs. The breathtaking views across the bay and enveloping mountains and framed by intensely red hibiscus flowers and crimson bougainvillaea leaves.
The Gulf of Mirabello
This is an area of magnetic charm-straight out of a Cretan picture book. It has some of the most beautiful scenery and unspoilt countryside on the entire northern coast of Crete. The curving coastline is interspersed with pocket-sized coves. On its shores are the cosmopolitan resort of Aghios Nikolaos and the picturesque fishing village of Elounda. The ancient little village of Elinika lies a ten minute ride away from both these resorts and is surrounded by fruit orchards and olive groves. Here village life has remained unchanged and unhurried.
