Elounda is perhaps one of the best cosmopolitan Villages in the world, situated to the east of Crete, 7 km from Agios Nikolaos and 70 km from Heraklion. At Mavrikiano, the beautiful Traditional Village that overlooks Elounda and its Bay, are built these Old Stone Traditional Houses. Their owners feel immense love and gratitude to their heritage, thus the need to revive and preserve the past, but at the same time modernizing them to fit the requirements of the present times. They believe that it is an expression of a most dear affection for the preservation of old times, a small token to those who kept our identity intact against the monstrosities of new buildings one nowadays sees everywhere constructed, with little taste or respect for the environment. Nowadays the thinking living creatures feel the urge to return to nature and to their roots and these Stone Houses are a part of the tribute to our Ancestors and their contribution to today's World.
