About the property

Enjoy the direct beach location

If you like to fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves and just like the morning dive just after waking up your feet into the clear water of the Libyan Sea, the Diaskari cottages are just the thing for you! The lovely independent holiday apartments located on the outskirts of the resort Makrigialos, on the southeast coast of Crete. You are idyllically situated on the seafront, perfect for swimming strokes in the morning, the refreshing lunchtime and to let the evening drift a little, so almost always!

The beach is never crowded, some locals and occasionally a few holidaymakers from Makrigialos come here.

Diaskari, once a storeroom for Carob is a lovingly restored, detached stone building. In two, on its own independent, traditional housing units was divided, simple and authentic in its decor The result is two very cozy property with a unique character, one of the best locations on the island. Each cottage has two bedrooms. In addition, there is an open gallery, according to the Greek style, with a single bed for a fifth Person, if necessary. On each floor there is a bathroom, one with bath on the ground floor and the other is a shower on the upper floor.

One of the charming features in Diaskari are the large arched doorways at the end of the spacious living / dining space. They lead out to a beautiful patio that is shared by both houses. It seems, you would only need to reach out, to keep them in the water.

If you find it difficult to leave your little oasis, you can spend your evenings in the traditional Taverna, just behind Diaskari and try local delicious cuisine. Otherwise, Makrigialos offers (10 min walk) all the amenities you could need, supermarkets, cafes, bars, bakeries, water sports and a wide choice of taverns with traditional or international cuisine.

Best family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed for four nights, one of the few times all of the family could be together. Beautiful, quiet, perfect combination of house, taverna, beach, nearby village. The house have everything needed; clean, well maintained. We have traveled in many areas of Greece, islands and mainland. We all agreed, it would be difficult to go anywhere else after staying here. And we are all making plans to return soon, and to stay longer.

Familienferien in bester Erinnerung.

  • 5 of 5

Der Aufenthalt in Diaskari bleibt uns in bester Erinnerung! Für unsere Familie (Kinder im Alter von 7 - 12 + Tante und Grossmutter (86)) mietetet wir für 8 Personen beide Häuser. Die Häuser sind bestens ausgestattet (wie beschrieben) und sind sehr geräumig! Die Lage ist einmalig. Die Organisation war unkompliziert - alles klappte bestens. Sehr geschätzt haben wir den von der Vermieterin vermittelten/organisierten Transfer von Heraklikon und die Mietwagen. Das Ferienhaus empfehlen wir unseren Freunden gerne weiter. Der Ort und die Umgebung bot allen etwas (Baden, im Liegestuhl lesen, Kultur, Spazieren, Berge). Im Ort hat es viele Restaurants und Läden mit freundlichen Leuten.

Ein Traum von Haus direkt am Meer

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren Ende März in Diaskari, um endlich Sommer und Wärme zu tanken. Es war alles ein Traum, das wunderbare Haus direkt am Meer, der Kies- und Sandstrand nur für uns allein, angenehm kühle Nächte und erfrischendes, ganz klares Meerwasser. Die Betreuung durch Claudia vor Ort war vortrefflich und sehr sympathisch. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Bei der Anreise war alles wie versprochen bereit. Auch die Übernahme und die Rückgabe des Mietwagens beim Flughafen Heraklion hat problemlos geklappt.

Die Lage des Ferienhauses ist direkt am Meer und es herrscht grosse Ruhe. Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist gut, die Betten sind bequem und alle Geräte funktionierten. Da die Aussentemperatur relativ kühl war, brachte uns Maria zwei Elektroöfen vorbei.

Wir haben die Ferienwoche sehr genossen und kommen sicher wieder.
