THE ISLAND OF CRETE: The Island of Crete is a Jewel glistening in the Mediterranean located in the south of the Aegean and Libyan sea. Crete has everything - magnificent mountain ranges, long sandy beeches, rocky bays and crystal clear seas. Bathed in clear sunlight much of the year, the climate is one of the best in Europe.

Crete also has a magic radiance which you feel as soon as you step foot on the Island. Many people fall in love with this magical Island returning year after year. The people of Cretie are renowned for there hospitality and tradition of welcoming visitors.

There is a supreme quality of light hear, the sharp rugged mountains meeting openly with the clear azure seas. There is a abundance of wildlife, plants and flowers that are unique to the island. Breathe in the ever-present scents of wild herbs, taste fresh fruit, the best of the world's olive oil and healthy, delicious cheeses. Crete is stepped in ancient history an historian's and archaeologist's paradise.

MAKRIGIALOS AREA: Makrigialos: Situated on the south east coast of Crete, Makrigialos is only 30 minutes from the working towns of Irapature (on the south coast) and Sitea (on the north coast). Makrigialos is characterised by some of the best beaches in all of Crete. There are many secluded coves, all gently lapped by crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean sea. A mountain ridge runs West to East across the island and it is this which gives Southern Crete its own very special climate. Additionally Makrigialos itself is surrounded by its own mountain range. This geography means that the Makrigialos area has the best climate in all of Crete. The area is popular with tourists all through the winter. It is not difficult to understand why the area produces what is considered to be the best olive oil in the world. Makrigialos is well known for hosting the prestigious Casa Dei Mezzo music festival in June. The nearby village of Agios Atefanos is home to the public observatory were you can observe the sky.

Things to do : Crete really is a place that allows you to do as little or as much as you want. I strongly recommend that you hire a car. The island is quite simply beautiful, and it would be a shame to visit Crete and not see some of it. Makrigialos is well known for hosting the prestigious Casa Dei Mezzo music festival with musicians coming from all over the world. The nearby village of Agios Stefanos is home to the Sasteria public observatory with 4 telescopes at your disposal for you to observe the heavens. There is a scuba diving centre 30 minutes away located in a beautiful area on the beach at Peristeras. The centre offers a range of diving courses. With coastlines to the south and mountains to the north, there are plenty of opportunities to explore Coastal walks. About 11 miles from Makrigialos is the highest peak in the area, Afendis Stavromenos with stunning views of eastern crete. Gorge walks can be found near Orino (Butterfly Gorge) Pefki and Pervolakia four miles from Makrigialos.

Blissful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this bright, clean, modern appartment in July. As a family we were particularly thrilled with the large well furnished balcony, from which we enjoyed amazing views of the mountains and sea. The apartment offered everything we needed, as did the lovely Bayview complex itself. There were 2 lovely clean swimming pools to relax by, which we could see from our balcony. Both the apartment and ideal location provided us with much needed rest and relaxation. The staff in the complex were extremely helpful. Nearby were excellent restaurants and shops offering food, souvenirs and beach equipment etc. so everything we needed was within close proximity. We would highly recommend Serenity, with special thanks to Valerye for her personal touch in making us feel so welcome, and for the invaluable information she provided.

Wonderfull place

  • 5 of 5

Valerye's apartment is perfect, we spend 2 wonderful weeks in August and we

founded all modern and necessary comfort. The balcony has a beautiful view on

the pools, the sea and the mountains. Decoration is neat and you will find all

kitchen utensils you need.

Bayview is a great place, very clean and restful. The pools are well kept, with

lot of sunbaths and parasols. The management is lovely and available.

Regarding the region, you can have good times in Makry Gialos where the sea is

beautiful with a long sandy beach and many restaurants. We rented a car so we

went to Knossos, Heraklion, Sitia, Vaï, the Moni Toplou and Kato Zakros. East of

Crete is very interesting, quiet and rich.

We strongly recommend this rental.

Beautiful place, felt like a home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here (1person) for the whole december (2014). It had everything I needed for a long term stay. Functional, cosy, warm, exeptionally well equipped kitchen, comfy bed and a nice large balcony with a seaview and afternoon sun. I was very happy about the dvd collection and good hifi system. Very peaceful (because it was winter and only few residents then) place, just what I wanted. To Makrigialos village about 20min. walking, I recommend a car because the good supermarket is quite far away and those minimarkets in Makrigialos aren't so cheap. Makrigialos it self is a nice small place with nice beaches, few huge hotels (which were closed during the winter) and good cafes in the small harbour. Also you might to visit the nearby villages and Ierapetra town, which I liked very much.

The nearest beach (which you can see from the balcony) was just amazing. Just to sat there staring at the sea and listening the waves... so amazingly relaxing.

I would definitely recommend this apartment for a long term stay even in winter. Weather was warm and sun was shining almost every day in december.

  • 5 of 5

wonderfull holidays, like in a dream .

we felt at Valerye's apartment like at home, and bayview resort has so relaxing ambiance, people was very quiet and respectful ( my boyfriend loved the resort).

we always remembered nights at Valerye's terrace, plenty of candles, dinning and talking, breathing the unique cretan summer fragrance (totally recommended)

crete( at least Lassithi, the prefecture we could visit) lovely, not overcrowded at all, we felt very powerful the island .

and cretans very very good people ,be worth the effort learn a few words in greek, they love that ¡

at last, express our gratitude to Valerye's (who is truly a classy lady) for advices, assistance and kindness,

we want to go back ¡

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this apartment, and it is a wonderful location to explore the quieter part of Crete. The apartment is clean and well looked after, as is the complex as a whole. Valerye gave us extensive information before our arrival which was incredibly useful and made our stay easier. A quiet and relaxing atmosphere to get away from it all, you won't be disappointed.
