Gepflegte neue Anlage bestehend aus drei Villen!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Urlaub auf Kreta. Das Wetter hat gepasst und die Unterkunft hat unsere Erwartungen voll und ganz erfüllt. Saubere und neue Villa. Zur Begrüßung gab es einige Leckereien und während unseres Aufenthaltes wurde regelmäßig gereinigt sowie die Handtücher und Wäsche ausgetauscht. Nette und unkomplizierte Vermieter. Einzig die Küchenausstattung könnte etwas umfangreicher sein. Aber wir waren ohnehin fast täglich essen in einer der zahlreichen Tavernen in und um Agia Gallini. Die Unterkunft können wir nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen, wenn man Ruhe, Komfort und einen herrlichen Blick sucht.

A very good stay, in a magnificent !

  • 4 of 5

A house with a magnificent view, the peace, the serenity, everything to spend of pleasant holidays. If we add to that the kindness of the Cretan people, we are not far from the perfection. The only negative point, could be the really small bathrooms, but as we live practically always outside, and with the swimming pool, it is finally secondary. Has to recommend !

Entspanntes Wohnen mit unglaublicher Aussicht

  • 4 of 5

Im Juli 2016 konnten wir zwei wunderbare Ferienwochen mit unserer 4-köpfigen Familie (zwei Teenager-Mädchen) in dem sehr sauberen, geschmackvoll und modern eingerichteten und funktional ausgestatteten Haus verbringen. Das Haus liegt etwas oberhalb von Agia Galini - die Sicht auf die Bucht von Agia Galini ist einmalig! Ein Auto ist allerdings unbedingt notwendig, was aber bei der Vielfalt der Insel und der vielen traumhaft schönen Strände sowieso empfehlenswert ist.

Das Haus mit dem Pool ist sehr schön und gepflegt, die Bilder der Annonce entsprechen vollkommen der Realität. Es wird täglich gereinigt, Handtücher und Bettwäsche regelmässig gewechselt. Sowohl die Verwalterin als auch die Eigentümerfamilie haben wir als sehr aufmerksam, freundlich und kompetent erlebt - jedes kleinste Problem wurde innerhalb von maximal 30 Minuten behoben - es ist jederzeit jemand ansprechbar.

Für vier Personen ist die Grösse des Hauses und der Zimmer angemessen - für mehrere Personen wird es allerdings wohl recht eng.

In der Nähe gibt es viele schöne Buchten und Strände, Agia Galini selber hat einen längeren Sandstrand, zu dem allerdings auch die anliegenden Hotels direkten Zugang haben, was diesen Strand recht voll macht. Im Ort selber gibt es viele verschiedene Restaurants und Bars, die wir alle als sympathisch und qualitativ gut erlebt haben - eigenes Kochen im Haus ist aufgrund des Angebots fast überflüssig.

Wir haben unseren Urlaub hier sehr genossen, haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können dieses Haus und den Ort als Urlaubsziel empfehlen.

Car: recommended

Evgoro Villas are located 5 minutes away from Agia Galini, one of the most popular seaside resorts of southern Rethymnon, conveniently located in the middle of Crete, 50 km away from Rethymno city and 80 km away from Heraklion, well suited to be the base for daily excursions.

The natural beauty of the emerald beaches, the rugged caves in the west, the myth of Icarus and Daedalus, the memories of the hippies and the tranquility of the sea, have made this village a favourite destination for thousands of visitors.The village is built amphitheatrically up into the surrounding hills, near the mouth of the River Platys or Amarianos, and offers panoramic views over the Messara bay and Libyan Sea.

East of the port starts a huge beachfront, which stretches east to Kokkinos Pirgos. The sea in the area is almost always calm. The part of the beach near the port is very well organised and provides all the necessary amenities. In the area near the river, ruins of an ancient temple of Artemis have been excavated. If you cross the river (there is a small bridge), you will find the second beach which extends further 1km to the east. The beach has small pebbles and is less organised. Next to it, there is the camping site of Agia Galini. You can reach this beach by car, if you drive in the main road connecting Agia Galini with Melabes and turn right at the road leading to the sea, directly after the river. You can walk (1.5-2 hours) to Kokkinos Pirgos. This beach, in which there is no access by road, is popular to nudists. It is totally unorganized, thus make sure you have food, water or umbrellas with you.

Agia Galini keeps a balance between a traditional fishing village and modern touristic resort, while it offers all modern and necessary touristic amenities to its visitors and yet you can still feel like you are visiting a cretan village and not a standardised resort. Τhere you can find shops with clothing and footwear, gifts, jewellery, folk art and traditional Cretan products, super and mini markets, pharmacy, kiosks, grocery stores, butcher, bakery, pastry, and gas stations.There’s also a good selection of restaurants, cafes, bars, tavernas and beach bars.

In the summer, many events are held on the port of Agia Galini, like concerts and Cretan folk music, theatre performances, the local "Fish Night" in early August where fresh fish offered by our region, with good wine and plenty dancing.

Near Agia Galini there are plenty of points of interest such archaeological sites (e.g Phaistos, Gortyna, Apodoulou), wonderful beaches (e.g Agios Georgios, Agios Pavlos, Preveli Palm beach, Triopetra), traditional villages (e.g Melambes, Apodoulou, Nithavri), religious sites (e.g Preveli Monastery, Odigitria Monastery), hiking starting points and many more.

Finally, Agia Galini has one of the best micro-climates on Crete, mild throughout the year, the sun shines every day even in the middle of winter. With a wonderful and diverse surrounding natural environment it is an ideal destination for an outdoorsy type of vacation.
