Villa Mirabello is a luxury 3 bedroom villa built on a hillside in the small village of Plaka near the famous resort of Elounda. It belongs in the Elounda Maris Villa Complex and offers superb views of th Spinalonga island, the Elounda Bay and the blue sea that invites you to surrender to daydreaming, far away from the bustling city life.
The elegance of the spacious and stylishly furnished 3-bedroom villa together with the warm and welcoming atmosphere create the feeling of refined luxury. The villa is surrounded by a rock and herb garden that spread their aromas in the air and has a private pool and spacious terraces.
A common drive way leads to all three villas (Villa Imperia, Villa Castro and Villa Mirabello) but each villa has its own private parking space.
As you enter the villa you’ll find an open plan area where the living room, dining area and the kitchen is. The living room has a balcony offering wonderful views or the sea and the island of Spinalonga.
Two steps lead up to the two bedrooms, one double and one twin, and a bathroom with a shower. Both bedrooms have access to balconies.
Another staircase leads from the ground floor to the pool level where there is a master bedroom, one WC, and the wellness room with the Jacuzzi. The wellness room and the master bedroom have access to the terrace, pool and garden all offering breathtaking views of the Mirabello Gulf and the island of Spinalonga.
Each of the Elounda Maris Villas (Villa Imperia, Villa Castro and Villa Mirabello) has its own private swimming pool, terraces, lawn and herb garden, a BBQ and outdoor furnished areas.
The only difference between them is that Villa Imperia had a larger outdoor area, Villa Mirabello a slightly smaller one and Villa Castro the smallest of them.
Villa Imperia is on the top right, Villa Castro in the middle and Villa Mirabello on the left.
The views of the sea, mountains and island of Spinalonga are stunning from all three villas.
The villa is a great property in a wonderful location overlooking Plaka although it is a steep climb up the 100m driveway to the property! Lovely pool, large patio area, nice dining area with great view, and inside the villa was well laid out. Availability of daily cleaning was certainly an unexpected luxury. Despite being one of three close villas, privacy was certainly not a problem at all as due to the design we were not overlooked. Our only small issue was the small number of pots/pans and limited crockery (e.g. we had to buy our own mugs as there were only small cups available!).
Plaka itself is a lovely resort with a village atmosphere. There are numerous restaurants to try and a number of friendly bars. Plus of course the island of Spinalonga is a short 10 minute boat ride away and well worth a visit, especially if you have read The Island by Victoria Hislop!
Overall a very enjoyable stay and we would recommend both the villa and Plaka. We will be returning!

5.00 - ”Un endroit à rêver!
Nous avons pleinement pu profiter de notre séjour à Plaka! L'accueil était chaleureux comme tous les gens que nous avons pu rencontrer pendant nos vacances en Crète. La villa Mirabello super avec une vue exceptionnelle, grande terrasse et magnifique piscine. Toute était propre et la femme de ménage passait tous les matins. En plus, la plage et l'idyllique village de Plaka accessible à 5 minutes à pied.
Si je dois mentioner un point moins fort: l'équipement de la cuisine, services et vaisselle devrait être completé. Et le chantier bruyant à proximité sera certainement bouclé quand on reviendra.

5.00 - ”Relaxation guaranteed....”
When my daughter and I and my two grandchildren left Villa Mirabello last year we knew we wanted to return ... and so we did. Couldn't wait to get there.. This villa certainly lives up to its name . It's location is superb ... One of three high quality villas , it sits in a elevated position with a breathtaking view across the Bay of Mirabello towards the beautiful island of Spinalonga and within five minutes walk of the unspoilt fishing village of Plaka. The minute you walk in you begin to relax . The villa is immaculate and has everything. You could possibly need down to luxury bathrobes and slippers and lovely little touches like essentials in the fridge fruit and water plus a box of biscuit from the owners bakery means that whatever time you arrive you will not go hungry ! The owner Kostas is lovely and couldn't be more helpful , nothing is too much trouble . The villa and pool , which is just beautiful are cleaned regularly and there are plenty of loungers and areas of sun and shade so everyone is happy ! Plaka itself is perfect , relaxing and quiet but with lovely tavernas and shops including a perfectly adequate supermarket with delightful owners .. In fact you need go no further if you just want to rest but I would recommend you get out and about and see this beautiful part of Crete ., it has everything .. Elounda is a bustling fishing port about ten minutes drive away and Agios Nikolaos should not be missed ! The island of Spinalonga is my absolute favourite though ...ia short boat ride from Plaka and totally mesmerising both fictionally and historically ! Again , we cannot wait to return ...will be counting the days ! ol Th
