Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Mirtos, Crete your home away from home

Mirtos, or Myrtos as it is locally known, is a wonderful little village on the south coast of Crete. Located in the Lassithi Province of the island, Myrtos is one of the most locally celebrated villages in Crete. Known as a real haven of peace and beauty, as well as a hotbed for authentic local culture, a self catering Mirtos villa is a real treat for anyone just wanting to get away from it all.

Things to do in Mirtos, Crete

Cafe culture is strong, and you will undoubtedly spend many happy hours in the Cretan sun simply watching the world drift by, and the waves gently lapping the shores with a coffee. Of course, this is if you can manage to drag yourself from the silver sands of Mirtos Beach. Mirtos Beach is a wonderful place from which to swim, with both sand and smooth rocks from which to enter the warm, clear waters of the Mediterranean.

However, those that want for a little activity from their Mirtos villa shall not be disappointed either. A holiday rental villa in Mirtos is a walker's dream, with an unlimited number of routes to walk in almost every direction, taking you along the varied coastline, into the bright flowers and fragrant groves of the countryside. You can even walk to into the mountains from a Mirtos apartment, and explore the ancient ruins that still litter the countryside.

During the evenings, Myrtos is a great place to go out and investigate local cuisine. You may well be invited to join in with the regular singing, dancing and general merriment that often seems to grip the village during the evening!

Places to visit from a villa in Mirtos, Crete

The most famous place to explore from a self catering Mirtos villa is the resort town of Elounda. Boasting stunning beaches and all the activity and service a visitor to the area could wish for, Elounda provides a wonderful one-stop-shop for anyone staying in a self catering Mirtos holiday home. The island of Mochlos also makes for an excellent daytrip from Mirtos accommodation.

Weather in Mirtos, Crete

The enviable Mediterranean climate Mirtos enjoys is a real bonus for those staying in Mirtos accommodation. The summer months are wonderfully hot, meaning swimming, siestas and sunbathing rate highly among the most popular activities on a Mirtos holiday, but the 'shoulder season', where walking and sightseeing take a more prominent role, last all the way through the winter.

Flights to Mirtos, Crete

The closest airport to a Mirtos apartment or villa is Heraklion International, which receives a regular influx of flights arriving direct from the UK. Having the use of a hire car whilst staying in Mirtos accommodation is recommended, if only so you can really explore the whole area.

romantisches Appartement, atemberaubende Umgebung

5 of 5
Die gepflegte und im traditionell kretischen Stil erbaute Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und war als Ferienwohnung für uns zwei fast schon zu geräumig. Das Appartement verfügt über ein romantisches Schlafzimmer, gemütliches Wohnzimmer, eine Küche, einen Essbereich und ein Badezimmer. Durch die Fenster oder von der Terrasse genießt man die atemberaubende Bergwelt und den grandiosen Blick auf das Lybische Meer. Trotz der zentralen Lage, in diesem kleinen Dorf, fanden wir unerwarteten Komfort und absolute Ruhe, die nur am Sonntagmorgen kurz durch die Kirchenglocken durchbrochen wurde. Unsere liebevollen Gastgeber, versuchten permanent uns jeden Wunsch von den Lippen abzulesen. Von Giannis erhielten wir nicht nur unbezahlbare Ausflugsempfehlungen und wertvolle Tipps, er besorgte auch gleich Tickets für die Überfahrt zu der quasi gegenüber liegenden Insel Chrisi, sodass wir uns nicht persönlich darum kümmern mussten. Unweit der Appartementanlage befindet sich die einzige Taverne des Dorfes, in der wir authentisch und immer bestens gegessen haben. Besonders empfehlenswert ist hier auch der selbstgebrannte Raki/Tsikoudia. Der kleine Tante-Emma-Laden, kaum 100m entfernt, konnte allerdings nicht allen unseren Bedürfnissen gerecht werden. Größere Supermärkte gibt es beispielsweise auf dem Weg nach Ierapetra. Der nächste Lidl-Markt ist ca. 15km entfernt. Das kleine Bergdorf liegt als Ausgangspunkt wunderbar zentral für schöne Ausflüge, angefangen bei Ierapetra, Agios Nikolaos, Elounda, Vai und viele andere süd-östliche Ziele. Als Wanderer empfehlen wir insbesondere die kleine Kapelle auf dem Hausberg (toller Ausblick), die grandiose Sarakinas-Schlucht und den kleinen Ort Myrtos nebst seinem wunderschönen Strand. Familien mit Kindern sollten vielleicht auch der kleinen Eselfarm einen Besuch abstatten, in der insbesondere „Esel-Rentner“ ihren Lebensabend genießen dürfen. Über ein Mitbringsel in Form von Möhren oder Äpfeln freuen sich die lieben Vierbeiner sehr. ;-) Ich glaube, diese kann man sogar für einen Ausflug mieten (haben wir nicht gemacht). Einfach mal nach „Walk With Donkeys“ googeln. Die Kritik an den Kirchenglocken und dem winzigen Supermarkt ist wirklich Stöhnen auf hohem Niveau. Wer das "echte" Kreta entdecken will und trotzdem nicht auf Komfort verzichten mag, ist hier genau richtig. Unsere Erwartungen wurden jedenfalls deutlich übertroffen.

Most relaxing holiday that I've had in years!

5 of 5
From the booking process, right through to saying goodbye, Giannis and Kyriaki were friendly, professional, and welcoming hosts. The accommodation itself is perfect for a couple, everything provided is of good quality and worked as it should. The view from the villa was incredible!! Breakfast and drinks in the evening on the balcony were a delight. If you prefer to be far from the madding crowd (but still within reach of beaches & things to do) then these villas are the perfect choice. It was our first visit to Greece and its islands. We will visit again!
