Villa
This villa is in the south-east of the wonderful island of Crete. The villa enjoys beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea and is just 600 metres from a sandy beach. The holiday home is near the village of Makry Gialos and is built on a slope. This contributes to the villa's delightful views. The holiday home is in its own grounds of 1,000 m2. It will comfortably accommodate a large family or a number of couples. There is a spacious terrace and a balcony/roof terrace. The balcony/roof terrace enjoys superb views of an olive grove, distant mountains and Makry Gialos Bay. The villa is perfect for sun and beach lovers. A short 600 metre walk will take you to Lagada Beach. This quiet, sandy beach is almost 1.5 kilometres long. There are a number of smaller beaches in the surrounding area.

You could have a beach entirely to yourself outside peak season. The village of Makry Gialos is around three kilometres away. It has an attractive small boulevard, a fishing harbour, tavernas and bars. You can enjoy numerous walking routes through picturesque valleys and gorges here. The island's historic sites including Knossos and Heraklion are well worth a visit. You'll find excavations and historic sites nearer by from the Minoan civilization up to Venetian times. This charming villa and wonderful island have something for everyone.

Villa stupenda
Villa Alexandra è una villa molto ben arredata, una delle migliori che ho avuto l'opportunità di affittare durante i miei viaggi estivi. Le foto, probabilmente non rendono l'idea della bellezza della villa. La cucina è molto fornita e potete disporre di tutto ciò di cui avete bisogno per una vacanza al sole è fornito. Dalla terrazza potrete cenare ammirando bellissimi tramonti. La villa si trova ad una certa distanza dal paese (Makri Gialos) quindi è consigliabile un'auto, anceh per potersi muovere nelle numerose spiaggie della costa.

Perfect little holiday idyll
Villa Alexandra is a well appointed villa, despite the austere look of some of the photos, it is much better than we first expected. All you need for a holiday in the sun is provided. Full kitchen, indoor and outdoor tables and chairs, sofas, sun loungers, even air conditioning even though we did not feel the need to use it much. Satellite TV and Wi Fi. There is even a mobile phone signal. There are two patio / sunning areas. Views over the neighbouring countryside and Lagada Bay are enchanting. The villa is located some distance from Makri Gialos so a car is essential for doing anything other than chilling. There are 4 secluded and generally empty beaches, all pebble, within walking distance from the villa so you are spoilt for choice. The villa is cleaned mid term if you are there for a fortnight, but there are the usual cleaning tools if you are so inclined.
