Renowned for its genuine warmth and friendliness, the elounda mare proudly upholds a tradition spanning twenty years of excellence in courtesy and cuisine. Honoured in 1988 as the first member in Greece of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux® association, the elounda mare hotel exudes the refined qualities that characterise such distinctive properties. Built as a Cretan mansion, the hotel is a jewel of traditional architecture and design, with gems of antique furniture and artwork adorning the halls and accommodations.
Ideal for families is the Minoan Palace, a new unique four-bedroom beachfront villa ideal for families, with a 76 sqm master bedroom and three additional spacious bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms and walk-in wardrobes.
