Reviewed 26 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We were meant to be a group of 4 couples but sadly one couple had to drop out at the last minute. Boy did they miss out!!, We did however toast our "absent friends" on most ocassions we had glasses in our hands.
The villa and the area are truely amazing. The choice of local tavernas were sufficient to satisfy the most demanding foodie and Sunday night at the Pepper Tree was a delight. The restaurant staff picked us all up at the villa, drove 20 mins into the mountains for a night of great food, drink and Greek dancing and then took us back to the villa, all for €30 a head.
The villa itself had all the facilities we needed for a perfect holiday where you could relax with your friends or lots of places where you could take a break for a quiet moment on your own if you wanted to. The only thing missing was a food mixer to make our own mayonaise, but life still goes on.
At night the sky is clear and the stars are everywhere, nearer to earth we saw owls flying by.

“Delivers everything it promises”
Reviewed 24 January 2012 for a stay in August 2011

Having been disappointed a number of times over the years by holiday lets, Villa Lagada was a real pleasure - our teenage kids were super excited when we arrived. Great place to have a relaxing holiday with family - pool and outside seating excellent. There is a a superb beach just 5 minutes drive from the Villa past the Dragons Cave restaurant and then where the road flattens out you can park on the side of the road and walk down to the beach which was usually empty when we visited.

Would recommend the Dragons Cave and Porphyra restaurants. The standard of food is generally very good but we were not so keen on the Italian on the seafront - the menu was a bit touristy and food average.

Made a day trip to Sitia which was only an hours drive and worth a visit for a change of scene.

Would recommend Villa Lagada without hesitation. Watch out for the deck chairs I broke a little toe on one of them - quality furniture!!

Afternoon Rob
Many thanks for the review, as you can imagine with everyone checking TripAdviser before booking anything these days your review will help a great deal.
Hopefully we will hear from you again when you are looking for another fantastic holiday. I think I may have already mentioned it but we now have wifi & satellite TV plus some fabulous furniture for the roof terrace.
Once again many thanks for the review

“Relaxation in tranquility, with stunning views and all the comfort in a splendid villa.”
Reviewed 17 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

It's our second time in Crete. The first time, almost 10 years ago we chose for a simple room in Sfakia since we had no children that time. Now with three little children we were looking for tranquility in a luxury villa with all the necessary comfort.
The trip from Heraklion by car took us 2.5 hours ; quite a long time but Crete is so nice that you never get bored ; it was just our first trip!
Arriving at Bay View we were welcomed by Anja Yzerman, a kind and helpful woman that handed us the key and gave us the necessary information. When we arrived at the villa, we really had a "wow"-feeling : it just met our expectations, inside and outside. The view was even better than we expected : while laying on the pool you have a splendid view on the magnificent villa, the Cretan mountains and... the sea of course ! You just can sit there for hours while gazing at the surroundings...
Makrygialos (and its neighbourhood) is a nice, typically Cretan place, not too crowded but still with enough shops, restaurants, bakeries etc. in the neighbourhood. Since the villa has his own large BBQ, we often went to the (amasing high quality!) butchery to buy our stuff there. You just need Cretan olive oil, salt & pepper and... oregano of course (you can pick it everywhere on the island, delicious!). And don't forget to buy the typical Cretan "Raki" (buy the home-made : it's sold in plastic bottles at approx. € 6 for 1.5 liters!). Of course we didn't use the BBQ every day : there are a few good and cosy restaurants where you can eat at reasonable prices.
If you want to go to a larger town you can go to Siteia, it's about 30 minutes by car (you get a nice trip trough the mountains for free as well!). Siteia is small and charming and has all the facilities and shops you need.
We stayed there for 2 weeks, time passed too quickly... it was definitely not our last trip to Crete!
