Gavin & Louise Noble purchased this apartment in 2009
When we first visited Makrigialos, we immediately fell in love with this quiet and unspoilt area of Crete. We purchased The Studio as our home away from home. It is a truly magical place; the views from Bayview are just unbelievable; and the combination of style and available amenities offered to us were everything we wanted for ourselves and our guests.
The Studio is our home away from home, as well as a property available for rent. This is why it has been designed to be luxurious & individual, and not a generic rental property.
The apartment was beautiful. Just as it looks in the pictures and three lovely pools which were never too crowded so nice and relaxing. The apartment has everything you need, comfy bed, good shower, an outdoor seating area, and is a good base for exploring the east of Crete. Definitely hire a car as the nice beaches and restaurants in town are a forty minute walk. There are lots of restaurants in town that serve good food and fresh fish, and not too busy so a good holiday for relaxing. The weather was fantastic too. Gavin was very helpful and prompt at answering our questions, the staff at the apartment were very friendly lpful and gave good recommendations. We would recommend the koufonisi boat trip, ammoudara beach (the drive there is beautiful and the beach is lovely), and Chrissi island.
Booking the apartment with Gavin was easy. He was very responsive and helpful. The apartment is exactly what we needed and Makrigialos itself is a great location; not too touristy but still enough bars and restaurants to ensure you can eat and drink at a different place every night if you want to. We especially liked Olympio bar for lunch or to use the beach facilities, diskari beach and taverna for a day at the beach with hammocks and both dragons cave and Petra bay were our favourite restaurants, but it’s fair to say we didn't have a bad experience anywhere.
Overall a great holiday, we will be back.
We had a lovely 2 week stay here in the summer holidays. The apartment is very modern and clean. It was furnished to a high standard and had everything you needed. We did a mixture of sitting by the pool which was perfect for the days you didn't want to venture out and also hired a car to travel to beaches such as 'scramble cove'. The restaurants in Makrygialos are really good. We'll definitely be back!
Flat was clean and had everything you needed, including a dish washer. Our flat was perfectly positioned on the corner, just away from the pool. Would strongly recommend the resort and the flat to people looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday.
The accommodation was exceptionally clean and extremely well equipped. There is a choice of 3 pools at the complex plus a paddling pool for toddlers (not that there were any when we were there).
The staff are very friendly and speak a multitude of languages.
The closest beach is literally just over the road and there are dozens of others within a short drive from base.
I recommend 4G so much that I booked it for next year while I was sitting out by the pool!
We had an amazing holiday here. The apartment was small but clean and well equipped and nicely decorated. It was right by the pools and the children spent most of the time swimming. The gardens were beautifully maintained and the owners were welcoming, very friendly and helpful with any queries we had. The complex is situated out of the main village, but we had a hire car and liked it being quieter and away from the busy village. There are some beautiful beaches nearby - our favourite was Green beach which has hammocks you can hire and a lovely taverna - the best food we ate in Crete. A wonderful holiday - thank you! We thoroughly recommend this property.
Makrigialos is a tranquil village, surrounded by historical, cultural and natural wonders ideal for couples and families. The natural beauty of the area is simply staggering with deserted coves and bays seemingly round every turn which benefits from some of the best weather in the Mediterranean.
If you want a taste of the real Crete, this is for you. It is the complete opposite of Malia, it is not commercialised or filled with nightclubs.
Makrigialos has a small, lively harbour that comes alive at night with numerous local restaurants and cafes serving the finest local food. Local waterside tavernas welcome you with cool drinks and delicious food.
The nearest towns of Ierapetra and Sitia both have busy water fronts with cafes spilling out onto the promenades. Both have good shopping, but if you want to go a step further, Heraklion offers shopping to international standards. The area offers all manner of activities & water sports. Including pedal boats, jet-skis, fishing boat charters and excursions to the nearby uninhabited island of Koufonisi are available during the summer.
Places to visit include a number of Roman and Minoan ruins; The Kapsa Monastery, 6km along the coast near the spectacular Pervolakia gorge; the mountain villages of Pefki, Agios Stefanos and Pervolakia; the protected gorge of Aspro Potamus; the Butterfly gorge, a 4.5 km walk from Koutsouras; Sitia, with its pleasant sea front lined with cafes and tavernas, a harbour, and the Roman Fort; Ierepetra boasts the longest beach on Crete, has a museum and the remains of a Venetian fort on the quay; Agios Nikolaos, Elounda, and Spinalonga Island are within easy reach.
