Overview
Villa -
2 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Makry-Gialos, Lasithi Prefecture, Crete
Our beautiful villa has a superb corner location on this small private complex and boasts stunning scenic mountain and sea views from the living areas and 3 levels of terraces / balconies. There is plenty of space and a large pool for children to enjoy. Parents are guaranteed to feel good too and you are sure to leave Makrigialos feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Our commitment is to provide our guests with high quality self catering accommodation, a friendly accessible service and a holiday that is refreshingly different from the usual holiday 'package' or typically basic Greek accommodation.

We only stayed in villa Saffia for 1 night and then we were transferred to villa Christina ( fridge problems) . Both villas ( and, I imagine ALL Grapevines villas) were just great. Imaginatively designed and well finished. Nearby restaurants were also great (esp Gabbiano's)....More

Clean modern well appointed villa. Local Restraunts excellent (Gabbianos and Haris). Weather was particularly good for Oct and very quiet so beaches were perfect. Only downside I can think of is cold pool. Would highly recommend using Grapevines.More

Thank you for your excellent review. You've picked out our two favourite tavernas from the 20 or so in the village! We find the weather in September and October is always particularly good in Makrygialos because it has its own microclimate, which fortunately means the...More

About the neighborhood
The peaceful and unhurried atmosphere of Makrygialos makes it a great place to escape from the tourist crowds. The village is lively but still unspoiled, and its friendly hospitality means you will be assured of a warm welcome wherever you go. Its long sandy beaches and crystal clear waters are set against an impressive mountain backdrop. With an excellent choice of beach-front bars and tavernas set around its compact harbour area it's an ideal place to experience the culture and enjoy the climate. Makrygialos means long beach - glorious stretches of sandy beach with shallow crystal clear waters that are perfect for children.
Getting around
There are many breathtakingly beautiful walks in the area. One of our favourites is simply to stroll along the promenade past the harbour and up to the headland for amazing views over the bay. Our villa offers high quality self-catering holidays within Makrigialos itself. Do not confuse us with other complexes, e.g. Lagada Resort , which is several kilometres outside the village. The location of our villas means that you can enjoy the fabulous panoramic views from our private roof top terraces, or watch the sunset sipping a glass of wine prior to taking a short stroll to dine at one of the many traditional restaurants that are on your doorstep
