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 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.

Ideally located in a quiet village, only a couple of minutes walk to small well stocked supermarket that is open until 9pm daily. A 10 minute walk from the villa is a locals taverna which was very friendly and did great mezze. Parama is a 5 minute drive and has a larger supermarket and very good butcher. The villa itself is stunning! The owner, Roland has obviously taken great care to finish the villa to an exceptionallly high standard. The kitchen and bathrooms very well equipped, immaculate and modem. Everything you could want is there (including an espresso machine). The bedrooms are all beautiful with the two larger bedrooms upstairs leading on their own terraces with fantastic views. The smaller bedroom is down stairs and was lovely. The outside space is stunning with several different areas to relax each with their own views. The courtyard had a BBQ and pizza oven and was perfect for evenings outdoors while cooking. The pool area is very luxurious and lit up at night. The quality and finish of the villa is only matched by the wonderful hospitality of the owner Roland. Nothing was too much trouble and he was always on hand if we needed anything. We arrived quite late and his wife had cooked us a wonderful meal which was waiting for us! This is a wonderful villa from which to explore Crete. It's an hour from Heraklion airport and well located to explore the island. Think Villa was brilliant and organised everything we needed, including taxi transfers and the hire car being dropped at the villa for us. Valia as very attentive and thoughtful and that made our stay stress free - ideal when travelling with a toddler! We loved loved loved Villa Ani and will definitely be booking again for next year!
