With all the comforts and conveniences of home in an authentic picture postcard fishing village setting, our guests say: ' the villa was perfect, comfortable, spacious, well-equipped and with extremely efficient air-conditioning.' 'you can tell that this is a place where people take a huge amount of pride. We honestly could not fault this holiday at all. Thanks guys. It really was a super holiday.' Accommodation overview 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 want you to feel at home, so we have designed our villas around al fresco living with lots of balcony space and everything you need within easy reach. Our fully furnished 2 bedroom villa is on a gated site set around a private courtyard with a large 20m swimming pool. The villa consists of a double bedded bedroom with ensuite, a twin bedded bedroom, modern kitchen, bathroom and shower room, a large wrap-around balcony, a private roof sun terrace, and garden. Ideal for private sun bathing or enjoying a drink before heading out for the evening. A glorious blue flag beach and harbour promenade are only a five minute walk away. There is a spacious roof terrace with sun beds and patio dining furniture,. There is also a WC on this third floor. Our villa is furnished to a very high contemporary standard. The bedrooms are on the ground floor and have wardrobe facilities, including safety deposit box . The first floor open plan style maximises the living space available and is complimented with a balcony to the front overlooking the pool and a large wrap around balcony to the rear, also with patio dining furniture. Access to all levels is via a contemporary spiral staircase which has child safety gates. Air conditioning features throughout, and in the cooler winter months it also provides warm convected air. The villa also has use of private parking which is sheltered from the sun. Preferred changeover days are Tuesdays and Saturdays to accommodate to UK flights into Heraklion airport, but we can be flexible on changeovers where possible.

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

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
