CRETE - Greece
The natural amphitheatre at Elounda Hills is carved into the ancient rock of Crete, embedded in the fabric of Greek culture that is built upon thousands of years of rich mythology and tradition.
It’s the perfect setting for a resort that sets the new standard for luxury Mediterranean living.
