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.

Perfect mountain condo with fantastic views!

5 of 5
The place was amazing! Quiet,up to Cretan mountains in a small traditional village and with wonderful views to the Libyan sea and to Chrissi island. Our house was clean and comfortable with all the essentials for our holidays. The owners very helpful and hospitable. Chrissi which was our favorite place is known by locals as Gaidouronisi, or Donkey islands! There are daily trips for the island from Ierapetra port- not far from the house.This small island is one of the most important coastal forests of large-fruited junipers in the Mediterranean and this is the reason that it is part of Natura 2000 network of protected areas.Tree trunks bent by the force of the winds blowing in from the Libyan sea, wild artichokes sea daffodils with flowers turned to face the sun and sandy beaches covered in seashells! We will come back!

Relaxing holidays with great views!

4 of 5
A very beautiful traditional apartment on 2 levels. The living room with the fully equipped kitchen on the ground floor and the large bright bedroom at the lower level. Our balcony overlooking the paved with the wonderful shade of the pergola was literally in the flowers The decoration and architecture of the house reminds of the old Cretan houses and the whole village is characterized as a traditional! The house had the possibility of using a wonderful terrace right next to our house with a sidelined view of the Libyan Sea. We recommend this apartment if you like quiet holidays in nature and kind and authentic people.
