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.

                                                                                                      We were a group of 4 adults and 3 children, the accommodation offers two self contained living areas in the house, perfect for two families holidaying together, all very well equipped. The outside living area is fantastic, exceptionally well maintained, beautifully manicured grassed area, lovely clean pool and fantastic communal eating areas outside providing shade all day. We particularly enjoyed using the outside cooking areas, large barbecue area, wood fired oven and even a portable hob which meant most food prep could be done outside. We cooked our own pizzas, had lots of barbecued meat and even cooked calamari which was delicious. Manolis the owner delivered an amazing dish of lamb and potatoes, Greek salad and bread which was incredible and enjoyed by all in our group, it was enough for dinner and lunch the following day, a very kind gesture and hugely appreciated. The villa is very convenient and made it a very relaxing holiday, 5 minutes by car from Panormos making a trip to the beach or dinner in the evening all really easy. Ample supermarkets in Panormos and Perama, also butchers and bakers which we enjoyed frequenting, and also a little trip to the local winery. Although the weather was very hot there was generally a little breeze which made it more comfortable, we enjoyed mixing our time between the villa and the lovely pool and the beach. Rethymnon is a short drive away if you want something more bustling. All in all a very successful holiday, all very easy from excellent instructions from Valia, Demetrius meeting us and helping out during our stay, the villa was also cleaned regularly to a high standard. Would definitely recommend!

Kostas the villa owner was so generous with so many gifts of food and drinks and the villa was cleaned and sheets and towels changed by a lovely lady Maria. Communication with Valia was easy and efficient throughout.
