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.

Absolutely worth its price. Kostas is the best owner ever: never intruding but always ready to help if you need him. His house reflects his very good taste in any detail, from the location, with a great view of the Libian sea, to the comfortable bed, the nice small swimming pool, the many shady spots and the beautiful bathroom. We spent there three happy and serene weeks. You must take into account an everyday 30 min drive to the beaches but you'll be rewarded by the isolation and the quiet and fresh air of Anatolì (we slept wonderfully).

The view from the villa and patio is simply stunning, we could have looked at it all day, evening and night. The house is clean, well appointed and homely and the pool is ideal, the four poster bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable and the mezzanine twin room was really sweet (even though we didn't use it). Mark had left us a lovely array of drinks, essentials and snacks in the welcome pack and was welcoming, relaxed and very helpful. The Stonehouse is the perfect place to get away from it all, the mountains and olive groves are beautiful and although it is quite remote, there are a couple of villages nearby with tavernas and shops and the nearby beaches were quiet and the sea was stunning. My advice is to take loads of books because when you get to the Stonehouse you won't want to leave!!
