“Grapevines - A home from home”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spent a relaxing two weeks in No1 grapevines, a spacious, comfortable villa in a small complex with a good size shared pool and plenty of sunbeds to go round. The villa was equipped with everything we needed, The booking process was easy and owner Peter was very helpful. The complex is managed efficiently by Rosemary and Nicoz who were always happy to answer querstions, book taxis and generally sort out any problems.

Makri Gialos is quiet and friendly, with a good selection of restaurants. One of our favourite tavernas was The Piperia in the village of Pefki above the town, lovely food and great hosts. The Pefki Gorge is worth a walk, we did it both up and back down, (with lots of rest stops on the pretext of admiring the scenery). The town beaches are nice but a bit busy and we preferred the much quieter Diaskari beach, just a five min walk away, where we hired a grass roofed shelter, three sunbeds and a hammock for 10 euros. The beach is a mix of sand and stones so we bought cheap swim shoes to save our feet.

We flew STN to Chania which meant a long drive along the length of the island but Heraklion is more convenient. Driving in Crete is an experience in itself as you are expected to pull over onto the 'hard shoulder' to let faster vehicles behind overtake.
