About Neal Carew

Neal and Debra Carew - We live and work in Warwickshire (Kenilworth), England and get out to our apartment whenever we can.

Neal Carew purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Neal Carew chose Koutsounari

We love Crete and in 2007 discovered Makrigialos which combines authentic Cretan village life with beautiful beaches and a variety of dining experiences.

We love the fact that we can transport ourselves to a really peaceful and genuine part of the Mediterranean and totally relax whilst having the benefits of a modern apartment as our holiday home.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is relatively new (completed in May 2009), very comfortable with the highest quality fittings and equipment. We like to eat on the balcony while enjoying stunning views of the mountains and bay.

Makrigialos has a good selection of shops and beachside restaurants offering plenty of interest and variety for our holidays.

Crete's south east area is relatively quiet and a perfect location for walking or relaxing on any of the beautiful local sandy beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I recently spent a very relaxing two weeks at this beautiful location. The staff were helpful and friendly, and the apartment was well appointed, quiet and very comfortable.

The complex is located just 20 minutes walk from the village, so you have the peace and tranquility of the Cretan countryside surrounding you, and the ammenities of the village nearby.

There is a secluded beach which is very peaceful, with a safe shallow sea that is ideal for swimming and allowing children to play. Local villagers were extremely friendly and helpful.

The surrounding area is full of beautiful villages and hamlets tucked away in discrete locations. Walks through steep sided gorges will entice the more adventurous tourists, leading to secluded mountain monasteries and spectacular views.

This was my first visit to the island of Crete and I can't recommend it highly enough, particularly on the quieter South Coast. I'm already thinking of when I can return!

Fantastic Apartment/Location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the apartment, it was gorgeous and was such a beautiful location. Had a perfect relaxing holiday and couldn't have asked for more. It is perfectly situated, nice and peaceful but not too far from the restaurants, shops etc. Would recommend Gusto’s restaurant on the beach front, think I would go back just for their Garlic Bread, it was delicious. Thank you to Neal and Debra for all of your help leading up to the holiday, you were extremely helpful, and nothing was too much trouble - the tourist book on Marki-Gialos that you sent out before my holiday to have a look a teas a lovely touch and a phone call to answer any questions was very much appreciated! Two very helpful and accommodating owners! Anya and the resort is lovely, sat out on the balcony every morning and evening which was lovely, really didn’t want to come home and back to reality – but unfortunately I had too! Would definitely recommend this apartment and location! The owners are fabulous! Will definitely be back in the future!

Further Details:

Situated in south-east Crete, Makrygialos ('Long Beach') nestles below a dramatic mountain backdrop and has a unique micro-climate. Its main blue-flag beach offers safe shallow bathing, never far from an available sun bed and parasol. Several small attractive local bars and tavernas run along the western side of the bay leading to the village harbour.

Visit the mountain village of Pefki (15 minutes drive) or explore the many unspoilt local coves and beaches. The ancient port of Sitia is a 30 minute drive north through spectacular mountain scenery. Once there, browse through a variety of shops (leather goods/accessories/shoes in abundance!) and enjoy a meal at the harbour-side. The cost of dining is very reasonable; quality and quantity never disppointing.

Local morning markets are held in Makrigialos (Fridays), Sitia (Tuesdays) and Lerapetra (Saturday). For more active holiday makers, Go-Karting is located 20 minutes drive from Makrigialos. South-east Crete boasts several archaeological sites, monasteries and spectacular gorges. The area's olive oil is considered to be the finest in the world. Make sure you sample the local extra-virgin variety and take some home to your friends.
