Talisker Greece, Crete

Talisker is a uniquely beautiful, sophisticated villa set in rural surroundings on the exclusive Elounda Peninsula. The award-winning architectural design, clean lines, uncluttered comfort and elegant wooden-decked terrace around the infinity pool, induce absolute calm and make the very best of a quite superb position, looking out over the sea of an almost unimaginable blue with the majestic mountains of Eastern Crete in the distance.

The very spacious and airy interior reflects the overall spirit of the house with its restrained, under-stated luxury. Due to its location, this magnificent villa offers complete privacy but also easy access to the local beaches and restaurants. Lively Elounda is a short drive away, whilst Agios Nikolaos, a small and very stylish town with some first class restaurants and boutiques, is only 10 kilometres down the coast. By contrast many quiet, traditional villages, with small tavernas, lie in the hinterland whilst the famous Minoan ruins at Knossos are just an hour's drive away.

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide.

We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

Grading Criteria:


Position, view, serenity, privacy


Space, style, furnishings and interiors


Property enhancements


Proximity to beach, restaurant and shops
