Malia, Crete
The house is located at the suburbs of Malia town, in a complex of 2 apartments. Just upon the beach, the house is 5 minutes away from the closest supermarket, in a walking distance and 10 minutes walk from the main beach road, where you can find the local bars, pubs, tavernas and shops! Finally, the summer house is located just 15 minutes away from the Archeological place “Malia Palace” and the famous beach “potamos”.
The House upon the beach is a must for everyone, such as couples or a 4 persons family (3 persons+ 1 baby), or even for friends!
The unique location of the house, just up on the beach, is a privilege! The beach is almost private, as you cannot see it from the road and only some local people know about it!
The bay is naturally protected from the wind and that makes it a place where all the months you can swim without wav...

This was our first experience for my wife and I of a villa like this with self catering so we have nothing similar to compare it with but we were not disappointed. The view of the sea outside the back door was just as the photo depicts and we spent hours just relaxing in the comfortable beach directly outside. We...

About the neighborhood
Malia is located 37 kilometers east of Heraklion, on the way to Agios Nikolaos. The main road seems to divide the town in two, the old Malia at the foothill of Mount Selena and the newer part towards the shoreline.

Malia is an unusual small town, unlike any other in Crete. It used to be known for its delicious potatoes. But times changed, the tourists started coming to Crete and the potato fields of Malia were replaced by hotels large and small, tavernas and bars.

Tourism eventually created a town with two different faces, like the famous split personality described by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1886:
- On the one hand is Dr Jekyll, the old Malia with its narrow streets, houses with bougainvilleas and little tavernas with live Greek music.
- On the other is Mr Hyde, the coastal resort...
