Grapevines Villa holiday review

  • 5 out of 5
We were delighted with our property in Crete. It was everthing we were hoping for and more! The appartment was excellent in every aspect. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped and close to shops and beaches. Although it was close to all the amenities the Grapevines development was quiet, even in the height of summer, great to come back to after a hot and busy day out! The air conditioning worked well but we found we only needed to use it 10 minutes or so before we went to sleep. We all slept very well waking refreshed every morning. The pool area and gardens were very well maintained and the pool itself was clean and refreshing. The local beaches were beautiful and within walking distance. We hired a car and explored some of the villages up in the mountains. We had some excellent local food both in Makrygialos and in the surrounding villages. The information left in the appartment was very useful when choosing places to visit. I would highly recommend this appartment to friends. Our family had a excellent two weeks holiday and will hopefully return one day.

Wonderfull holyday

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderfull holyday at the villa. Very Nice harbour and little village, very authentic compared to such places as agios nikolaos or Heraklion we visited on the north coast. We appreciated Being away form the overcrowded and much touristic north coast.
Very tasty taverns and wonderfull swimming pool at the villa. The beach is close and not overcrowded.
The people are very Nice and all speak english.

We really enjoyed our holyday.
From a french family coming from russia.

Lovely home away in Southern Crete

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed nine days at Grapevines and it was wonderful. The house is very well equipped. It's close to a lot of restaurants and the harbour is a nice walk away. From all restaurants that we tried, Dragon Cave (five minutes drive) was outstanding.
Beaches are within walking distance.
We stayed there early October and the weather was still very good (approx. 25°C).
Looking forward to coming back some time again.

A superb relaxing summer holiday-Highly Recommend!

  • 5 out of 5
This truly was our best summer holiday by far. The villa is superb and although there are others on the same complex we felt that this one was ideally situated with the sea one side and the pool/mountains on the other side. We felt at home immediately and were more than happy to just explore the area closer to hand as we chose not to hire a car.

There was a lovely walk up to the village of Pefki (along the quiet road) with a stop for refreshments at the taverna before returning via Pefki gorge - hot but spectacular scenery throughout followed by a welcome ice cold beer in a taverna on our return to Makrygialos!

Our two teenagers (14 & 18) had a great time too - especially in the pool and when the mood took us we ventured down to the beach for a play in the sea - fab! (The watersports were also a hit).

All of the food was delicious and we would particularly recommend Gabbianos situated just along the road from the villa (opp Sunwin Hotel) purely for their hospitality and friendship - a lovely family.

The property is well looked after and maintained by a lovely couple, Rosemary and Nikos, who are on hand for friendly advice whenever you need it. They are truly an asset to this wonderful complex. I really cannot praise it enough and it is as good, if not better, than the photos and description.

The only one disadvantage is that it is quite a distance from the airport (Heraklion) which makes it expensive by taxi or lengthy on public transport. But for a quiet, away from it all resort it is worth the trek. We really would like to visit again soon.

Great All Round Family Holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this villa in July 2010 and had a fantastic time! Range of childrens ages from 8 to 16 years and all were catered for! Villa was modern, clean and beautifully furnished - help on hand from Rosemary and nikos who stay next door and were able to help with recommendations for restaurants, beaches etc.

Eating out was no problem with a selection of restaurants close by and down at the harbour which was a short 20 minute walk along the beach. Gustos at the harbour, Gabbianos and the Porphyra were our particular favourites although we never had a bad meal and the prices were reasonable.

Plenty to do if you didnt want to sit at the fabulous pool all day. Down at the beach which is a 5 minute walk across the road and down through the Sunwing hotel, everyone took part in jet skiing, banana boat, pedalo and snorkelling. The beach is set in a sheltered cove with beatiful clear water - great for younger kids as it gets deep gently and is fantastically clear for snorkelling!

Overall we all had a fantastic time and have no problem in recommending this to other families. Only downside is the hour and 45 minute drive from the airport but it is well worth the travelling time!!

Makrigialos is blessed with 5 separate beaches. The main blue flag sandy beach stretches from the harbour for half a mile providing a safe gently shelving bathing beach ideal for children and family holidays. Couples will also enjoy the variety of beachfront bars tavernas and restaurants that stretch down to the harbour. The main beach offers a range of watersports facilities with good snorkelling off the rocks at the end of the beach.Makrigialos has its own archaelogical site in the remains of a Roman Villa above the pretty harbour. Just a short drive takes you to secluded beaches and coves, interesting Monasteries and hill top churches, the harbour towns of Sitia and Irapetra with its Saturday market, waterfront restaurants bars and tavernas. Spectacular gorges and timeless traditional Cretan villages such as Pefki and Agios Stefanos dot the mountainsides. Makrigialos remains a relatively undiscovered gem of a holiday village. Unspoilt charming full of character a real find.

Other Activities: olive oil tasting, mountain herb collecting, local market, monasteries
