We, a family of three generations, stayed in this beautiful Villa in May. It is very close to the beach and tavernas, and a short drive to a small supermarket. We unfortunately arrived at 4:30 am, owing to a 2 hour flight delay followed by over an hour at the Avis car rental desk collecting pre-booked cars. Nevertheless, Georgios and Anna were there to meet us and make us feel very welcome! The Villa was immaculate, comfortable and very tastefully furnished. The fridge and kitchen cupboards had been generously stocked. Our two small grandchildren loved the pool, especially when they found the button that turned on the jacuzzi! The outside area has both sunny and shaded areas close to the pool so that we could watch over the children. We used the built in barbecue most days. We found Crete a very friendly, safe and easy place to visit. We drove to several beaches east and west of the Villa, which were uncrowded and delightful. Many thanks to Georgios and Anna for being so friendly and helpful, and especially for the homemade birthday cake brought to us on my wife's birthday! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this beautiful Villa.
We had a wonderful week staying in this superb complex. The staff were outstandingly helpful. The apartment was of the highest quality in every way. The front and back balconies and roof terrace outstanding. Lots of extras to make our stay just perfect. The view from the roof terrace in the evening over the sea and mountains was a delight. The pool area and gardens were exquisite and we often had them all to ourselves. We enjoyed our visits to some of the local villages and walks. We loved the gorge walk near the monastery - tough going but worth the effort - and seeing the goats was a bonus. Makry Gialos was quiet and pleasant during the week, but busy at weekends. In summary we had a wonderful week here.
