The perfect package with flights included

Stunning views at a luxury villa in beautiful Crete, with your own private pool, flights and transfers, plus a host of thoughtful extras

The nine Pleiades Luxurious Villas, individually styled by acclaimed designer Olyvia Syskou, occupy a picturesque hillside location on Crete, overlooking the Mirabello Gulf. The nearest towns are Elounda and Aghios Nikolaos, on the coast by the edge of Lake Apatos - fabled to be a favourite bathing spot of goddesses Athena and Artemis.

With standards you'd expect to find in a five-star hotel, the villas edge into the lead when it comes to privacy and holidaying at your own pace. The creamy neutrals of the tasteful high-end interiors contrast beautifully with the brilliant blue of the sea outside. Offering a private pool, terrace and garden – as well as the option of arranging a chef and butler to prepare your meals – staying here means you really don't have to face the outside world if you'd rather not.

Although it is worth venturing out to the nearby resort town of Aghios Nikolaos, which holds strong to its traditional roots, with a fine collection of tavernas and restaurants offering delicious local fare and fresh-out-of-the-net seafood. A series of nearby secluded coves and beaches is also worth investigating when you have a spare afternoon.

Whether you come as a couple or a party of four, these elegant and contemporary villas offer more than enough space for everyone and an excellent range of facilities. Kitchens are fully equipped. Bathrooms are en-suite. And the Mirabello Gulf views are nigh-on life affirming.

Good to know

Your transfers include shared coach transfers between the airport and Agios Nikolaos, and shuttle taxi transfers between Agios Nikolaos and the hotel.
