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.

Weather in Agia Pelagia, Crete

The house itself was beautiful and clean. There is a fantastic pool outside and the garden is lovely. All of the rooms have air conditioning which was great. Eva and Yiannis were the perfect hosts - they met us at the airport and helped us home with our luggage. The fridge was fully stocked when we arrived, and Eva prepared us a meal. They prepared us a further 2 meals throughout the holiday which was a treat. Eva also bakes an exellent cake! (i would love the recipe!). On our day of departure, we had to be out at 12, but our flight wasnt until the evening, so they provided an alternative place for us to store our luggage and pass some time. Yiannis then helped us back to the airport with our luggage. Over all this was a wonderful holiday! Thank you very much :-D

We enjoyed watching the sunset every evening from one of the balconies. Whilst there is not a beach directly outside, we did swim by going down the ladder and we spent a lot of time on the beach which was just a couple of minutes walk to the left out of the back gate where there are also friendly tavernas. The seafront path and road at the back of the house proved good for my early morning runs. There are friendly restaurants and bars all within easy walking distance including directly next door. The supermarkets and butcher almost opposite is really convenient. Kokkini Hani is small, but friendly without being particularly glamorous, but it is a great base for visiting many other areas. Manolis was extremely helpful greeting us on our arrival and arranging for us to hire a car. We had an excellent and relaxing holiday and would recommend the property.
