Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Sissi, Crete your home away from home

The village of Sissi is a very picturesque seaside village, hidden from the tourist crowds in the east of Heraklion, Crete. Without the constant threat of a tourist invasion, Sissi retains its wonderfully peaceful, traditional charm. 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.

Places to visit on holiday in Sissi, Crete

It was eqipped with everything you could possibly need, the welcome package was spot on and the villa was spotlessly clean. The owners were there to greet us and are so friendly and nice. Very peaceful with beautiful views. It was perfect for us, we'd go back tomorrow if it was possible, the best holiday ever Thanks Steve & Barbs

Наш выбор пал на Ириду виллу так как были все удобства для отдыха с ребёнком и что ещё не мало важно это наличие услуги подогрева бассейна . Забронировав эту виллу мы связались с владельцем Михалисом и были приятно уделены так как его супруга Ирина говорит на русском языке. С этого момента Ирина сделала наш отпуск максимально комфортным. Нас встретил трансфер в аэропорту, который она же организовала , предоставила нам все необходимое для нашего 10-ти месячного ребёнка , даже написала списки магазинов где покупать продукты питания для нашего малыша. Любая наша просьба выполнялась в кратчайшие сроки. Мы очень благодарны за столь теплый приём и мгновенную реакцию на все наши просьбы это была колоссальная помощь, а особенно учитывая то, что Ирине нужно было заботиться о своём 3-х месячном малыше. Что касается виллы то можем сказать, что дом ещё лучше чем на фото. Он намного больше и очень чистый, что для нас было важно. Так же владельцы построили огромную обеденную зону с барбекю, где мы проводили все наши вечера, это был для нас так же приятный сюрприз так как на момент нашего бронирования у них не было фото с барбекю зоной. Мы наслаждались тишиной и покоем находясь на вилле , это был просто Рай после шумного города. Мы обязательно вернёмся в это место ещё раз как только запланируем наш отпуск в Грецию.

                                                                                                      Villa Elia is the perfect place for a relaxing “getaway” with spectacular views and tasteful modern spacious accommodation. David and Lindi, the owners, met us on arrival and showed us around our accommodation. They were both a font of local knowledge having lived in Crete for many years. We booked for a week at the end of September and hired a car so we could explore the surrounding Cretan towns and villages. Crete is quite hilly so unless you are a mountain goat or like walking uphills we would recommend hiring a car. The car hire rates are very reasonable, especially late in the season and give you the opportunity to explore the scenic coast and mountains locally. Cretans are famous for their welcoming smiles and warm hospitality and there are many local tavernas within walking distance. Milatos is a local fishing port nearby with numerous excellent tavernas overlooking the sea specialising in freshly caught seafood and local Cretan dishes. Although there were only two of us Villa Elia can comfortably accommodate at least 6 in the three spacious bedrooms. The master bedroom was particularly impressive with modern en-suite bathroom and sliding windows leading onto a terrace giving a fabulous panorama. The other two bedrooms (one double and the other with twin beds) were on a lower floor and also had equally impressive and lovely sea views. These two bedrooms shared a spacious bathroom with a ‘wet room’ shower. The separate large utility room had a washer and dryer. The living room/dining area/kitchen was a large family open plan area with modern “L” shaped settee, six seater dining table and well equipped European kitchen. The combination of the vaulted ceiling and large sliding double glazed doors leading onto the front terrace gave a feeling of bringing the panorama into your room when fully opened. From the living room you can walk onto the side terrace with the swimming pool, Cretan pots, umberellas and recliners for those sun worshippers that would rather be lounge lizards with a good book and cool drink to pass the time away! We spent most of our time exploring the local countryside during the day, enjoying a sundowner on the terrace as the sunset followed by a meal in the friendly local Milatos tavernas. Overall an excellent location and family friendly accommodation that we would fully recommend to future guests. Thanks especially to David and Lindi for their warm welcome, local advice on the sites.
