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.

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 views are phenomenal - not conducive to leaving the property! Fortunately it's only a 10 minute walk to the town and the beach for a refreshing swim. We enjoyed BBQing our tea with a mountain view, and hope to be back in future. Jen and Chris

                                                                                                      4 of 5

Location is good, just outside of little port of Sisi and only 10 minute walk into the town where there are lots of bars and restaurants. Photos are clever at not showing that the villa is right beside another similar size villa and on a road that one or two coaches pass by every hour during the day. Saying that, with the gates closed, we had great fun in the pool at the front of the villa all day long without feeling too overlooked. Would recommend it highly for a family group. Audrey and her team could not have been more helpful, recommending wonderful photographer, Graham, and excellent caterer Eleni. Anything that needed attention she sorted immediately.
