The distance from Iraklion airport and the convoluted bus ride (chaqnges required) if one does not hire a car (about 2 hours drive) means that Makry-Gialos has not been spoilt by the type of mass tourism and commercialisation that is a feature of other parts of the island such as Malia. Whilst there were fairly crowded stretches of beach, they... More

Just returned from a lovely week at Villea Village. We stayed here some years ago and i'm so glad we decided to return. The setting is beautifully picturesque - the accommodation is set amongst attractive gardens so you can enjoy a little peace and quiet as you sit outside your room on the tables and chairs provided. The pool area... More

Yes,the apartments are not the most luxurious but our studio apartment was spacious and had everything we... More

We've been back to Villea Village a number of times over the last 13 years. There's always a friendly welcome from the owners & staff, and we usually bump into old friends who've come back again (just like us). The hotel has a fab pool with a bar, plenty of sunbeds with beautiful olive trees for shade. There's an olive... More

Went there in October 2013: 100% satisfied, apartments very clean and tidy and with a bit of old greek style touch, even if basic. Garden is magnificent and pool very big, even if I would suggest to ask advices for the magnificent beaches all around the area. Management and staff are very nice as well.

Here's a list of of our complaints: 1) Upon our arrival (we had just traveled 2 1/2 hrs by ferry from Santorini and 2 hrs by car), front desk... More

Rooms are clean and with enough space and two adjoining rooms can be combined using a double door. Furniture and colours are somewhat outdated. Strong points are the large swimming pool (25 by 10 meters) and access to the beach at a short walk across the street. The bar at the pool has some 'English style' entertainment, so be prepared...

We caught two buses from Heraklion to get to our resort but it was certainly worth the trip. If you are wanting the night life this is not for you but for a truly relaxing holiday lying by the pool or beach this is amazing. Their are plenty of trips to various historic sites if you wish to take tours.... More
