Its location, overlooking the sea with mountain views does exactly that. For eating out there are plenty of good quality Tavernas nearby. In this peaceful and private place you can completely relax and yet be only a few minutes from either the sea, the beach or the mountains. For getting out and about there are private beaches, sandy beaches, gorge walks, off-road trails, quad biking, mountain biking, Minoan settlements - all can be arranged and are available within the area. With a living are of 200sqm there is a genuine feelin... Read more

We loved our week at this very well-appointed semi-rural villa in the south-east of Crete. A short drive to multiple small shops and restaurants along the coast road, and a small cafe/snack bar at the bottom of the track at the small apartment complex where...More

About the neighbourhood
Situated on the south east coast of Crete, Makrigialos is only 30 minutes from the local working towns of Ierapatra (south east coast) and Sitea (north west coast).
Makrigialos has some of the best Mediterranean beaches most of which in the area are 'blue flag' - ideal for children and adults alike.
There are mountainous regions for walking and cycling as well as exploring for their historic village history and local taverna meze food and drink! A must - if only to compare with that of the beach-side tavernas.
For the energetic there is also available locally walking trails, gorge walking, bike hire, kayaking, rock climbing, quad bike excursions and off road jeep safaris. Just ask our managing agents.
Getting around
We would recommend the use of a hire car but this is not essential. There are buses from Makrigialos to both Irepetra and Sitia and local taxis can get you where-ever you wish.
For example a taxi from our villa in to Makrigialos - in 2016 - cost around €6.5.
Car advised
