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.

This is a wonderful house to stay in. It is on the edge of a very typical Crete village close to Neapoli, and has been carefully and tastefully modernised from a traditional Cretan stone cottage. It is about 50 minutes from Heraklion, 15 from Ayios Nikolaos and 7 from Neapoli. A car is essential, but gives one access to all of Crete east of Heraklion and to at least part of it to the west. The photos show primarily the living room (kitchen, dining and easy-chair areas of a single long room), which has been recently decorated and comfortably furnished using traditional materials and objects; the three bedrooms (2 double, 1 twin) are spacious, comfortable and well-furnished. All rooms have air-conditioners. The whole was spotlessly clean and fully equipped with all one could need. After a day out, it felt each time as a place one really looked forward to returning to. The caretaker, Poppy, is a very friendly person, who, despite our late arrival at 3.30 a.m., after a delayed flight, met us at Neapoli, showed us the route from there and round the house, and had put a beautiful bowl of fruit for us in the fridge. She supplied much detailed local information about places to visit, advice on where to shop, etc, and repeatedly asked us to contact her by phone if we needed anything else. Above all she made us very warmly and genuinely welcome. There are not as many renovated original houses available for holiday rent in Crete as we expected. We have rented properties of similar kind in other countries, and this was one of the best we have ever seen. Compared with the dense concrete jungle we saw advertised on the Malia area coast, this was paradisal. We were very sad to leave it and would advise speedy booking!

Stunning villa and outstanding service and attention to detail

5 of 5
I can thoroughly recommend this villa. It's absolutely beautiful and extremely well equipped. A great deal of thought has been put into providing everything you may need and more. We were given a lovely welcome and the owners had left us a completely packed fridge on arrival including wine. It was very thoughtful. Anna even bought over a delicious cheese pie which we all loved. Nothing was too much trouble. They helped us with car hire at short notice and additional sunbeds. We felt looked after and they insisted if you need anything just ask. The villa is in a very secluded spot. You do really need a car. The beach and setting for the villa are stunning. There are two small tavernas near by. The beach one had live music and dancing and when we visited the one on the road we were made very welcome. It was family run and the owner joined us for raki and told us all about the area. That was lovely. The pool area of the villa is amazing and we had many lovely evenings watching the spectacular sunsets and barbecuing in the outside kitchen. We were a family group of eight. There is a lovely games room in the basement with a pool table,TV and exercise machines. The villa was cleaned literally from top to bottom every three days including changing all the bed linen and towels. Every morning the pool area is swept and tidied before you get up. Definitely the most beautiful villa we have stayed in and the best customer service we have experienced. A big thank you to Anna and Stella.
