Sea views to the front and mountains to the rear. Tranquil yet 5 minutes drive from the shops, tavernas and the quaint harbour where you can hire boats. Let the world go by while watching the crystal clear sea under the shade of the trees on the beach at Diaskari Taverna. 5 min drive up the hill is Dragons Cave Taverna with the most stunning views of the whole of Makrigialos Villa Lagada boasts a list of facilities rarely found in villas to rent in Crete.

Our aim has been to create a villa where a large party, be it extended family or simply a group of friends, can really holiday in private surroundings with almost every whim catered for.

Ideal location for a large family or group of friends , sun on the pool all day long but plenty of shade and quiet areas to find if needed. The owners provided recommendations for local tavernas and supermarkets all of which were enjoyed. Nearby beaches were safe to swim and snorkel and were not overcrowded.

Management response:

Thank you so much for your kind words, we try very hard to make everyones stay as near perfect as possible, hope to hear from you again in the future.
