Interaction with guests
Our Site Manager, Rosemary, is on hand to ensure you have everything you need to enjoy your holiday. She will meet and greet you on arrival, show you around the house and hand over the keys (unless it is late at night and the keys will be in the door - she will come and meet you next day). Rosemary and Niko are available during the day to answer any of your questions but they do take time off between 13.00 and 16.00 each day. There is a welcome booklet in the house which has lots of information to help you have a wonderful stay in our house.

The bedrooms were quite small but absolutely adequate, and it was nice to have...

Beautiful villa in a lovely location, has all the facilities you could possibly need for a self catered holiday. The house is immaculate with lots of space and the pool is only metres from the front door. The pool area is really lovely and fantastically well looked after. The villa itself is just outside Makry Gialos, has a supermarket virtually...

Getting around
There are daily buses from Makrygialos to Irepetrea but most people hire a car for their stay to allow them to travel to the wonderful hidden villages in the mountains and enjoy traditional cretan hospitality. Makrygialos has everything you need - tavernas, small supermarkets, shops, bars, ice cream parlour, so in some ways, there is no need to travel far at all.
