The prefecture of Lassithi occupies the far-eastern part of Crete and is divided into eight municipalities.
It has a variable and contrasting landscape, home to endless sandy beaches and wonderful mountains. Elounda and Agios Nikolaos are the closest major towns, definitely worth-visiting, as they are known around the world for their beauty and where guests can find all kinds of daily amenities, restaurants and cafes.
Pure C Estate is located only 7km away from the vibrant town of Agios Nikolaos and just 17km away from Elounda, both offering a big variety of bars, cafes and restaurants for all hours of the day.
The vicinity of the property to some important Cretan must-see attractions such as Knossos Palace, Spinalonga islet and Mochlos traditional Cretan fisherman’s village is also a significant asset making it an ideal holiday base.
Plaka is located opposite the entrance of the Elounda lagoon, in one of the most beautiful spots of the entire island boasting wonderful views to Spinaloga. You can find several traditional taverns and lovely old houses, which give you the impression that time has stopped a century ago.
A visit to Spinaloga is also a must. The history of the island still inspires awe. It has been a Venetian fortress; a castle colony; a rebel refuge; a place of exile for lepers; a communication link with Cairo during the Second World War. The island had been well fortified by the Venetians during their presence in Crete. From a structural and architectural point of view as well as given the aesthetics of the landscape as a whole, the island still retains an unsurpassed beauty.
