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.

The house is accessible via a private drive way off the main road. Apart from the microwave, everything you could need (including a freezer) was available. Internet access could be better. We had to go outside to have a good internet connection. We arrived very late/early (2am) and received the keys without a problem. People were very friendly and got us breakfast for the first morning. Irina responds quickly to email requests.

As a group of friends we hired both Villa Charoupi and Villa Kali Skia for my 40th birthday celebrations for 8 nights.. It was absolutely perfect. The setting is insanely beautiful and we loved the different areas to swim, and to hang out. We had a 9month baby with us and the pool was great for her to bob around in and easy for her Mum and Dad to get her in and out. The wee deck area over the pool was great to sit and have a few drinks in a sun lounger. And then there was the (other) private bay. It was absolutely superb. We spent a LOT of time there. From the perfect early morning wake up swims to antipasto lunches to cocktails all day long made at the 'bar' - it was awesome. We loved the privacy and clarity of the water was what dreams are made of. The two villas were also superb. A few niggles with a few bits and pieces breaking but nothing that couldn't easily be replaced or fixed. They were super comfy and a lot of thought has been given to small details. With the 2 villas we were spoilt - we all met and had group breakfasts down at the lower villa, spent the day by the water, and at night moved up to the top villa for BBQ's (amazing bbq area btw!) and lovely long dinners around the table on the deck with the most amazing views and sunsets. Georgios was amazing to deal with and couldn't heave been more helpful and friendly. He really looked after us and nothing was too much trouble- he was superb!! I wish we could be transported back there now, I'd love to book in every year - it is such a special place. I can't imagine a more perfect holiday and way to celebrate /commiserate the big 4-0. I feel really lucky to have spent time there - I almost don't want anyone else to know about it so we can keep it to ourselves, but obviosuly we want Georgios to get lots of visitors - these places are just so, so special. Can't wait to go back!

The apartment itself was clean, bright and airy - and waking up to the view from the balcony was something special. The owner Maria is simply lovely. She was on hand for any questions we had and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay. Our flight in was delayed which resulted in us arriving at an unearthly hour but Maria was still there to welcome us with true Cretian hospitality. Her recommendations on places to eat, drink and visit were all excellent too - Piato becoming a favourite of ours. All in all we had a great time here and didn't want to leave - I wouldn't hesitate in recommending both the apartment or this area of Crete and we hope to return in the future.
