Daydream while gazing at the olive-strewn hills and the deep blue of the Cretan sea in the distance. Start your day with a dip in the large swimming pool, and float on your back to look at the star-filled summer sky at night. This is Villa Elisavet. This big stone-walled house is located up the hill from Sisi, a small fishing village on the northern coast of Crete in the region of Lasithi. It can accommodate up to 11 people, and each room has a traditional-inspired decor. There is a built-in barcecue and a wood-fired oven for you to enjoy with friends and family. The villa is owned by a family that also runs the nearby restaurant, ‘Paradosiako’, where tourists and locals alike flock to throughout the summer season, in order to enjoy delicious home-cooked local cuisine and game. Villa Elisavet is a true gem not to be missed.
