The village of Sissi is a very picturesque seaside village, hidden from the tourist crowds in the east of Heraklion, Crete.

Surrounding a delightful little port, Sissi is truly idyllic, and anyone who finds themselves in Sissi Bay, Crete, will instantly fall in love with this hidden corner of Greece.

Things to do in Sissi, Crete

Sissi is a village of unending charm. Many Cretans converge on its seaside restaurants during the evening, a sure sign that these restaurants really do serve the finest of local dishes. Fishermen’s wives can still be seen sitting along the pier cleaning the day’s catch in preparation for serving, and time passes blissfully slowly all year round. The stunning hotel garden somehow manages to make Sissi Bay, Crete, even more picturesque, and if the amazingly deep, clear waters of Sissi Bay seem too good to resist, there is even a small beach across from the port. These waters are magnificent for swimming in, as they are always calm and sheltered as well as refreshingly clean and clear to boot.

The rugged, wild landscape of the Heraklion region are a outdoor enthusiast’s dream. Consisting of dramatic gorges, soaring mountains and a rocky coastline inundated with coves, caves and little beaches, the surrounding countryside of a self catering Sissi villa is ideal for walking, horse riding, mountain biking and in places, mountaineering. Walking and riding from Sissi is a fantastic option, especially as the area is adorned with amazing historical and natural attractions. The archaeological site of Malia is well worth exploration, as is the Milatos Cave and the beautiful monetary of Saint George of Selinaris.

Family holidays are always a joy from Sissi accommodation. There are a great range of water parks, beaches, water sports centres across the region, easily accessible and well staffed. Keeping children engrossed, happy and active has never been easier from a Sissi holiday rental, but if you are looking for a romantic break with your partner, with plenty of exquisite restaurants and views of indescribable charm, a self catering Sissi villa is the ideal answer.

The property was extremely well kept and very unique, with more than ample space for 8 adults. The local area was untouched by commercialism, the locals were extremely friendly and many of the restaurants that we visited knew Audrey and were very attentive. We spent a day in Malia on my wife's birthday and again was spoilt by the staff at Candy Club's Beach Bar. We had a fantastic holiday and we were all very sad to leave and would love to return, highly recommended.

We had our relaxing morning coffees in the secluded lower courtyard underneath the bougainvillea and all other meals outside on the pretty terrace which has views over the tranquil village and the olive groves to the sea and also up to the mountains. The cottage is clean and well equipped and we spent a very happy, relaxing week here using it as a base to explore this part of a fascinating island. The property owner, Paul, responds quickly and courteously to all emails and the property manager,Edith, met us promptly and made us feel very welcome. Thank you!

                                                                                                      To give you some context, we were a party of 7 with a 1 year old, 2 people in their 30's and 4 over 65! We had a lovely break in Sisi and found the Villa to be perfect. The lounge, dining area and kitchen are very spacious with a large balcony overlooking the olive trees - very nice to watch the sunset from. It was also very safe for a 1 year old to crawl round (once we had blocked the stairs off with cushions!). The bedrooms were very nice - 2 lovely rooms on the top floor, 4 rooms on the bottom floor (the living space is in-between!). I would say air conditioning is a must in Crete and this villa had it in every bedroom. The outdoor eating area is really good and the bbq excellent. The pool area was nice too. The location of the villa is perfect. Its a 10 minute walk into the village & if you don't fancy the 10 minutes back its only 5 euros in a taxi - they were always available. The restaurants in the village were very good. The village beach is very small BUT the beach just beside the nearby ancient palace is one of the best we have ever been to and is a 5 minute drive. Finally, Audrey and Eva were superb throughout our stay - making sure we had everything we need, giving us recommendations. Its lovely to know that you have someone to help you just in case you need it! I hope you find this review helpful!
