About this location

The Lassithi Prefecture region

Crete – the southernmost island in Europe has “everything”! Its bountiful variety of features includes mountain villages, long sandy beaches, rocky bays, beach-bar-boogie & nightlife. There are magnificent mountain ranges, water-sports, tranquil locations and clean swimmable seas. Bathed in clear sunlight much of the year, the climate is one of the best in Europe. The largest island in Greece, it is understandably a most popular travel and vacation destination.

Crete also has a magic radiance – truly! There is the supreme quality of the light here, the sharp rugged mountains meeting openly with clear seas. There is an abundance of wildlife, plants & flowers that are unique to the island. Breath in the ever-present scents of wild herbs, taste fresh fruit, the best of the world's olive oil and healthy, delicious cheeses. Enjoy the delight of sipping a Greek coffee at the roadside in a mountain village, the excitement and spillover of weddings and occasions, the history, the people and the world-sourced visitors. It is also a historian's and archaeologist's paradise.

Crete has a people noted for and conspicuous in their hospitality and tradition of welcoming visitors. The traditions and culture offered in music, art, food and crafts play a large part in this picture. It combines European ways with the uniquely local.

Because Crete is the largest of the Greek islands, it offers both developed tourist areas with resort hotels and also quiet coves, hidden beaches and invigorating mountain villages and plateaus that reward the discerning world traveller. Wondrous moments, those memorable combinations of time & place that provide you with enriching experiences, are yours - here - if you explore the island.



A traditional Cretan village on the coast of the southeastern Crete. The village is built across the beach, and there are many wonderful and quiet beaches around it. The main beach is full of people in summer time and there are watersports, bars, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets & souvenir shops.

The nature around is beautiful with the southern Cretan Sea, the mountainsite, and the natural forest on the north. You can also have the possibility to visit three traditional Cretan villages, and two archeological places in the village (the Minoan and the Greek Roman villa).

Beaches: There are five separate beaches in the immediate Makri Gialos area.The main beach, which is blue flag accredited and which stretches eastwards from the harbour for half a mile, provides golden sand and safe shallow bathing. There is on offer a range of water sports facilities in the summer season.

Nightlife: Makri Gialos is one of the quieter, less developed destinations in Crete, more suited to couples and families. The walk down from the complex at the eastern end of town is dotted with bars, restaurants, tavernas and most establishments also front onto the beach. Soon after passing the Gecko Bar you reach the harbour area, a pleasant place to stroll around, with its own patch of sandy beach and collection of waterfront bars, tavernas and restaurants standing side by side.

Culture: Makri Gialos itself is a small town of around 1000 inhabitants who originate mostly from the surrounding villages. It wasn't all that long ago that the town was just a scattering of store houses and fishermen's cottages, and even today the local economy is based as much, if not more, on agriculture as it is on tourism. The area has been inhabited for centuries and is home to Minoan and Roman ruins, the former dating as far back as 1400 B.C. More 'recent' evidence of habitation can be found at the Kapsa Monastery, perched on the hill side four miles east of town, and believed to have been founded in the 15th century. Contemporary culture is represented by timeless traditional Cretan villages, such as Pefki and Agios Stefanos, which dot the mountain sides.

Walking: With coastline to the south and mountains to the north, there are plenty of opportunities to explore. Coastal walks over sand, shingle and rock are possible east and west from Makri Gialos itself. About 11 miles from Makri Gialos, and at 4500 feet the highest peak in the area, Afendis Stavromenos affords stunning views of eastern Crete and can only be reached on foot or by 4x4. For the only slightly less adventurous, gorge walks can be found at Pefki and Pervolakia, both around four miles from Makri Gialos.

Scenic Drives: Every road out of town is a scenic drive, either along the coast or up into the mountains. Our site manager can give you detailed route schedules, including where to go, where to stop for the best views, and where to visit.

"Best family holday yet!!"

We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Grapevines in June this year. The villa was perfect. You could want for nothing. Our 2 and 1/2 year old was in heaven. He learned to swim in the beautiful pool, had dvd's for lazy mornings and evenings courtesy of Robbie and Jules's girls (Thanks girls!!). It really was home from home. Rosemary was always on hand for help and advice and Makrigialos itself is one of the most beautiful parts of Europe I have ever been to. Really unspoilt, traditional and the coastline in both directions was
stunning. Beaches amazing - especially for small children. Traditional delicious Greek food and no sign of any tackiness anywhere!! We are hoping to get back again before the season is over and if not this year - definitely next and many more to come I should imagine. We absolutely loved it and had the best holiday yet! - Carol, Amir and Kamran
