Location description from owner

The Lasithi Prefecture region

Crete – is a beautiful Island with lots of mountain villages, long sandy beaches, rocky bays, beach-bar-boogie & nightlife. There are some excellent opportunities to take part in water-sports, as well as tranquil locations and clean seas.The weather and climate is one of the best in Europe. 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 lots of wildlife and colourful plants & flowers.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.

Makry-Gialos

Makri Gialos is literally translated as 'long shore’. The long beach and several sandy coves that are never overcrowded, provide excellent conditions for swimmers of all experience and children due to the soft, gently shelving main beach and clean, clear blue water. Makrigialos now has become a popular resort due to its beautiful bay, long sandy beach and the friendly local hospitality. It is still unspoiled and an ideal spot for those searching for quiet holidays, with visitors returning year after year. The long sandy beach has crystal clear shallow waters and is perfect for children and non- swimmers,in summer it has a selection of water sports. The beach is lined with a good variety of tavernas to suit all tastes, the fishing harbour being the most picturesque part of the village. Makrigialos has a very good supply of shops, tavernas, cafes, and water sport facilities, disco bars, one bank, pharmacy, doctor, dentist, car rental, florist and car service stations. There is a street market (9.00-14.00) each Friday on the cross road to Agios Stefanos, near the harbour entrance. In traditional tavernas meat, fish and other local dishes are served. The numerous fish tavernas also serve fresh fish caught locally. In all restaurants and cafes, the quality of the food is excellent and prices are reasonable. The excellent climate of the area (around 340 sunny days per year), the beautiful landscape and the warm hospitality attracts visitors of all ages.

“Very relaxing perfect location in a well equipped and comfortable villa”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2012

Grapevines was a perfect location to stay for our holiday in Makrygialos. It is walking distance (20 mins) from the harbour end of the village, although the return is uphill. The villa itself was clean and very modern with all the equipment needed for a comfortable stay, i.e. fully equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge area and bedrooms. The specific location of no.16 is set in the corner of Grapevines, which affords a little more privacy than some of the others and has its own sun trap late into the evening due to its position. The pool area is also very clean, well managed and necessary after a couple of hours in the Cretan sun! The village itself is still a throwback to how many Greek island holiday villages used to be in the early 80s before mass commercialism. There are no thumping music bars, flashing neons or other such nonsense. All of the tavernas offer a mix of traditional Cretan food and general Mediterranean fayre and is excellent quality, whilst surprisingly relatively cheap. We regularly paid less than €50 for a complete meal for 3 adults including wine/beer. Ask Rosemary or Nicos at Grapevines for recommendations, she suggested a place in the harbour run by Mimi, can't remember the name but it's easy to find and really excellent food. Having stayed in many different types of property all over the Med, we would not hesitate to recommend Grapevines as a perfect base and we will definitely be coming back when we can!

Many thanks for your kind review, glad you enjoyed your holiday. Just to let you know I bought a table and chairs for the kitchen patio when I was there in late Sept. Cahal

“Fantastic villa, lovely village, perfect holiday!”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2012

We stayed at the villa for a week in August for a girls holiday. The villa was beautiful, pool lovely and the resort had an amazing selection of beaches. It was just what we wanted-a quiet resort yet enough to keep us occupied. Thank you!
