Snuggled high on a hill in eastern Crete is Adrakos Apartments which overlooks the Elounda Gulf and the Mirabello Bay. It’s a place I dream about regularly! It has everything you could want in terms of the BEST in Cretan hospitality and culinary delights thanks to a kafenio and taverna on site. (Costas is a fantastic cook!) Add to this a Jacuzzi, swimming pool, natural therapies and yoga classes and you have the best holiday imaginable. I was lucky enough to watch Costas and his family lovingly build this place in the early 1990s. Named after his grandfather, Adrakos means “Man with the strength of body and soul”. This place has body and soul and more. And this is the view from every balcony of every apartment and studio and is quite simply, to die for!
