Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Agia Pelagia, Crete your home away from home

Agia Pelagia is a charming village on the North Coast of Crete, just 22km from the regional capital, Heraklion. Located in a region of real beauty, and known for its authentic Greek charm, a villa in Agia Pelagia is a wonderful place to get away and relax, blessed with peace, natural beauty, genuine culture and almost endless sunshine.

Things to do in Agia Pelagia, Crete

Of course, Agia Pelagia holidays are largely focused on the beach. Agia Pelagia villas are well catered for beaches, with a huge range located within a short drive of Agia Pelagia apartments and villas. Agia Pelagia beach itself is actually one of the finest in the whole of Heraklion, and if you are in an Agia Pelagia villa for a week, most people will not even think to explore any of the neighbouring sands. However, if you do manage to tear yourself away from the beautifully soft sands of Agia Pelagia beach, Amoudara, Kalamaki and Malia beaches are all well worth exploring.

Many people descend on Agia Pelagia apartments for the excellent sailing and windsurfing conditions for which the area is known. You can take lessons from the beach front, or for those with more confidence, equipment hire is also available. Scuba diving is also extremely popular from Agia Pelagia villas, with wonderfully clear Mediterranean waters and plenty to catch the eye.

Places to visit from a villa in Agia Pelagia, Crete

The Heraklion region is also one of great cultural significance. The Archaeological Museum, Minos Winery Museum and the fascination Lchnostatis Museum are all well worth a visit on an Agia Pelagia holiday, and for those with a cultural or historical interest, the regional capital, also called Heraklion, is certainly worth giving a day to.

However, if you prefer peace and quiet in abundant beauty, the ancient villages of Kamilari and Pitsidia will certainly not disappoint. Surrounded by unspoilt countryside, and filled with culture and history, you may amaze yourself at what you can find tucked among the narrow streets. These both offer an excellent place to experience Cretan food from your self catering Agia Pelagia holiday villa.

The villa is in walking distance to the beautiful beach of Lygaria or Agia Palagia, with plenty of choice of places to eat. The pool at the villa is a great place to sunbathe, followed by a cool down and everything is kept amazingly clean and tidy. We loved our time here and would definitely come again. Couldn't fault it.

Das Haus ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet, bei der Austattung hat uns nichts gefehlt, der schöne Freisitz lädt zum Frühstücken ein. Maria ist eine herzliche Gastgeberin, die uns gute Strand- und Restauranttipps gab, den Transfer zum Flughafen organisierte und sich sogar vier Wochen nach unserem Urlaub bei uns gemeldet hat, weil wir zwei Sachen im Haus haben liegen lassen. Nochmals vielen Dank an Maria!!!

Perched high on the cliff between two coves providing safe and delightful beach swimming and water sports, guests could be forgiven for spending their entire holiday simply indulging in the villa's own facilities. The sea views on three sides are nothing short of spectacular, day or night. Almost every room spoils you with a jaw-dropping vista. The villa is superbly appointed inside with every need catered for, from morning coffee through to al fresco dining, complimented by tasteful furnishings where nothing is compromised, particularly space. Outside, dedicated barbecue and pizza 'huts' add to a bar and cabana servicing the sparkling, deep pool which provides infinity views to die for. This is a venue capable of satisfying the most demanding of travellers. More than this, it beckons the most discerning.
