Lovely house on beautiful complex
Grapevines 18 is situated in a great spot on the complex with views of both the sea and the mountains. It is a lovely, well equipped and nicely furnished house.
The pool and gardens are spotless and there are plenty of sun beds.
The lounge and kitchen area are really spacious with lovely balconies to the front and back.
Car hire is essential as it is a 2 hour drive from the airport.
There are lots of beautiful beaches and interesting towns to visit, both in the vicinity and further afield. We left a book there with places of interest to visit.
There are lots of tavernas on the beach in Makry Gialos where there is no charge for sunbeds as long as you buy drinks. We particularly liked Melydron which has a good selection of food.
There are plenty of restaurants which are very reasonably priced - beware, portions tend to be huge!! (Don’t be afraid to ask to take leftover food away) One of our favourites was Petra bay down on the front.
Booking was straight forward and the owner is lovely and very helpful.
Rosemary, the site manager is also great, and nothing is too much trouble.
Lovely relaxing holiday in Makrygialos
We had a lovely fortnight staying at number 18. It was very clean, well equipped and felt spacious with 4 adults. The front balcony was great for morning coffee and to watch the sunset in the evening. The rear larger balcony was peftect for lunch, providing shade and lovely views of the mountains - we were lucky enough to see 3 eagles soaring above one day. We didn't use the rooftop solarium but that also had great views. The complex is well maintained and feels very calm and secluded. The large pool is lovely if a bit on the chilly side when you first get in! The local beaches are just a 10 minute stroll away, with lovely soft sand and are spotlessly clean. The sea is clear and warm, and shallow enough to be ideal for children. The bars and restaurants we visited were all really good for food and service, and we found enough choice for us veggies. We would definitely recommend this property and resort,.
The house is beautiful, spotlessly clean and stylish.The pool is pristine and also the surrounding gardens .Rosemary who runs it in Crete is great really helpful and kind.The local tavernas are really great very friendly and extremely competititive in their pricing .We are already going again in October ,cant reccommend it enough .Thankyou ! Dani and Mike Leedham
