“Great villa makes a great holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Choosing the villa was easy- detailed description with photographs.
Arrived in Crete to heavy rain wasn't a great start to our holidays however during the next 10 days perfect blue skies and great temps high 20s early 30s. Ideal for October.

2 hour transfer time from airport to villa- spectacular scenery.

Villa is immaculate with all the facilities you need for a carefree and relaxing holiday. Mid week laundry change for sheets and towels. Additional beach towels- no need to take your own!!

The villa complex is well maintained with a lovely swimming pool ideal to cool off.

Location of villa is within easy walking distance to a number of beaches sandy and a couple of rocky pebbly coves, great for snorkelling. Water shallow and warm.

There are loads of tavernas within walking distance to the villa so the fully functional kitchen can be rarely used as eating out wont break the budget.

A great holiday.

“Very relaxing perfect location in a well equipped and comfortable villa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 for a stay in September 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!

“Fantastic villa, lovely village, perfect holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012 for a stay in August 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!
