Elounda S.A

The Family of Spyros and Eliana Kokotos have been in the hotel business all their lives. Spyros Kokotos, an architect, has been specialised in hotels since working during his studies at the National Technical University of Athens, while Eliana Kokotos was literally born in the hotels that her father, Elias Sotirchos, managed and owned. The two founders of the Elounda tradition met in Crete during the late 1960s, a time when tourism in Crete was in its nascence, and bought land in Elounda with the intent of developing the best holiday destination in the whole country of Greece.

Resort-affiliated private homes are one of the best investments in holiday real-estate, as the resort offers services in terms of both annual maintenance and daily conveniences like food and beverage, maid and pool cleaning, gardening, etc., while the owner of the property, together with friends and family, enjoy the various facilities of the Porto Elounda Deluxe Resort: beach, golf, spa, bars, restaurants, tennis, childcare, water sports, and much more.

These private homes are arranged in an inter-connected complex with private road and only a couple hundred meters from the resort. Driveways and garages allow guests to use their private vehicles for their transportation needs, while the resort also arranges transfers with its own vehicles. The location of the residences is such that it allows unhindered views over the resort and to the limitless expanses of the Aegean Sea beyond. The elevated perspective ensures both privacy from outside views, as well as between each of the residences.

The Elounda Emerald Villas are a gorgeous complex of six private homes, enjoying elevated sea views, splendid serenity and seclusion while at the same time enjoying privileged access to the Porto Elounda Resort as an option.

All this in one of the most privileged locations in Greece, rich in natural beauty, optimal year-round climate, archaeological sites, agriculture and rural life, breathtaking hiking and rock climbing, the Cretan cuisine, and, of course, the Aegean sea, with its limitless sailing and water activities. Whether owning a magnificent residence right on the water’s edge within a top-tier luxury resort, the Diamond Residences, or owning a private villa with spacious gardens and mesmerizing sea views, the Emerald Villas, the opportunity to own some of the most amazing real estate in Greece has now been made available at the country’s top luxury destination, Elounda, Crete.
