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 beaches, 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 Crete 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 southeast 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 where 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.

Highly Recommended. Everything as per desciptions.

  • 5 of 5

10 day stay for couple plus 18 yr old daughter. The apartment and complex are of a high standard. Everything was as described and the booking process and communication with the owner quick and efficient. Good 'tourist guide' to things to do supplied in advance and in the apartment. Balcony is west facing and has sea and mountain views. Great for morning shade, afternoon sun and perfect sunset views. Both pools good and not too busy even in August. As suggested car is essential and unlocks lots of visit opportunities. All the jewels of Eastern Crete are within 60 to 90mins drive: Ag Nik, Sitia, Vai, Kouremos, Xerokambos etc. The latter particularly recommended for the intrepid drive and the crystal clear waters. Good beaches also v close to apartment - enjoyed Diaskari plus various 'coves'. Petra Bay seaside restaurant in Makry/Analispi and Dragon were 2 local ones we liked. Apartment very spacious for 2. Bit of a squeeze in the lounge/kitchen at night with sofa bed up - so better for 1 or 2 children rather than 2 extra adults I'd say. Overall excellent choice and would thoroughly recommend.

The apartment was perfect for us and exactly as described. It was clean and had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted when we arrived at the property. Such a beautiful apartment with a spectacular view of the coastline and the sea and a great view of both pools. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook for ourselves and the bedroom had plenty of cupboard and wardrobe space for all 4 of us. The double bed and sofa bed were extremely comfortable and we made good use of the balcony too, really enjoying eating outside. Excellent air conditioning and we really appreciated the fan in the bedroom too. The staff in the resort were very friendly and helpful, always willing to give advice, weather forecasts and directions to the best beaches. The cafe on site was extremely convenient and served delicious breakfasts and great coffee. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return another time.

Good 3 star Resort

  • 3 of 5

'Beautiful Luxury Apartment...' is a little over stated. Apartment was adequate but far from luxurious. Apartment stated it was air conditioned but this did not extend to bedroom. Self service washing facilities are needed on site.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Café on site is a good addition.

A quiet get away...

  • 5 of 5

First time in this apartment but second time at the complex. Visited in May for some R&R as the place is quiet and peaceful at this time of year. The apartment itself was perfect for my needs.

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.
