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

With such a magnificent Mediterranean climate, it is little wonder that Agia Pelagia holiday villas are in such high demand. The summers seem almost endless, with daily peak temperatures pushing the 30C mark right through from May until late September.

Yummy!) :) The house was perfect for us (5 couples). New, clean and beautiful with a nice garden. It is the perfect location for holidays. We enjoyed it! See you soon!!

Der Weg dorthin führt durch eine schmale Strasse bergauf. Die Villa ist durch einen Sichtschutz ausreichend eingefriedet und gegen unliebsame Blicke geschützt. Lediglich das dreistöckige Haus des Vermieters befindet sich etwas höher gelegen auf der anderen Straßenseite, was aber auch überhaupt kein Problem darstellt. Der Vermieter ist sehr zuvorkommend und aufmerksam, die Kommunikation in englischer Sprache problemlos. Die Villa ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Im Oktober hat man leider auf allen vier Terrassen vormittags keine Sonne, auch ist der Pool nicht beheizt ist dann einfach zu kalt. Im Sommer ist dies mit Sicherheit eher willkommen. Panormos hat zwar nur einen kleinen Sandstrand, ist aber dennoch empfehlenswert, weil eben nicht überlaufen. Zudem befindet sich im Ort eine sehr gemütliche Gasse mit einer überschaubaren Anzahl von kleinen Lokalen, die nicht mit leckerem Essen geizen und zudem noch moderate Preise verlangen. Aufgrund der geografischen Lage ein ausgesprochen guter Ort, um Ausflüge in alle Richtungen der Insel zu starten.

Just supermarkets left open really.The villa has everything you could need and is all new. Ideal kitchen with all you could need, a lovely Veranda to sit out with nice furniture and a gorgeous pool area with nice beds and an amazing 360 view of the sea and mountains.Perfect for the second half of the week when the sun shone. We did come in the first week in November and Bali had basically closed down. It made us explore a little more and meant we did see maybe more than we would have had it all remained open. Rethimno was worth a visit even in torrential rain and was all open and a bit busier with many places to eat and drink. We did take to the hills in the car to get to one or two smaller villages and had fun?! driving back in the dark on dark and very windy roads. And do try the local Taverna on the way back up the hill from Bali. Looks a little on its own but when we did venture in they were so friendly, the food was good and about 10 euros cheaper than every where else we ate. All the booking arrangements were really well handled by Valia and at the property Michael and his Mum couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Towels etc changed mid week (with home made cakes) and a lovely few items supplied in the fridge etc on arrival. A lovely chilled week was had and maybe next time we would come a month earlier to see Bali at its best.
