: LOCATION :

Mesodokia Homes,are located in the outskirts of the mediterranean fishing village of Makrygialos

build right on the edge of the low cliff on the coastline

"Makrygialos" in the greek language, means "long sea shore"

It is characterized by some of the best beaches in all of Crete (and that says something)

There are many secluded coves,all gently lapped by crystal clear waters of the mediterranean sea.

The peaceful area,the idyllic scenery,the beautiful beaches and the hospitality of the inhabitants,offers a nice combination for really relaxing holidays,especially for families with children,group of young teenagers,retired couples and youngsters in love.

The area is famous for its natural beauty,which comprises of numerous unspoiled beaches with clear blue water which you can discover at the nearby area

Also,traditional picturesque villages and its four magnificent gorges.

It is an ideal location,since the area combines both beaches and mountains covered by lush greenery and endogenous pine,olive,citrus and carob trees.

A mountain ridge runs West to East across the island and it is this which gives Southern Crete it's own very special climate.

The mountains shield this part of the island from any 'inclement' weather.Additionally Makrigialos itself is surrounded by it's own mountain range.This geography means that the area of Makrygialos, has the best climate in all of Crete,and possibly in the entire Mediterranean.

It is a fact that the area produces what is considered to be the best olive oil in

the world...

About Emma Constandinithou

Born in London in the 80's. my early childhood was mostly spend in the old town of Chania during the Summers and traveling with parent in Europe through the winters.

As a teen ager I was living between London and Athens.

I started working as a decorator for boutiques and then took on a full time job in trade and fashion.My work demanded that i would travel between Athens -Paris and Milan all year long.

In 2008 I made an investment in Chania,buying a Venetian hall and opening my own designers boutique in the old town.

At the moment,a whole new chapter in my life is beginning… I am creating the possibility to travel long term.

Emma Constandinithou purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Emma Constandinithou chose Lasithi

My grandparents,living between Kenya and Alexandria, came and invested in the village of Makrygialos in the 80's.

Makrygialos has the most amazing Mediterranean climate, no wonder it produces the highest quality of olive oil in Europe.

The endless sandy beaches with the tranquil waters. The small pictographic Harbour with the fishing boats floating calmly all day long. Having dirks and cocktails in relaxed summer bars when you are in the mood to socialise.

What makes this apartment unique

So peaceful and a few meters from the sand,and at yet you are only metres away from civilisation.. restaurants, mini markets,banks,pharmacies, bars, shops and of course all the amenities that the resort which surounds the Homes, offers: huge swimming poll,kids playgrounds,mini golf,jim,spa,water sports etc

Tolle Unterkunft mit schönen Stränden in einer tollen Gegend

  • 5 of 5

Emmas Haus ist wirklich toll. Der Garten ist sehr gemütlich und der Sonnenplatz mit Meerblick genial für ein entspanntes Frühstück. Wir haben die Ruhe, das Grün drumherum, abseits des Hotels sehr genossen. Die Sitzecke unter dem Schilfdach war schön zum abendlichen Lesen und Spielen oder zur Mittagszeit wenn es in der Sonne zu heiß ist.

Der Pool und die Rutschen waren toll für die Kinder und die beiden Strände waren einfach der Hammer. Toller weicher Sand, keine Steine, flacher Einstieg, einfach perfekt. Zwar hatte das Hotel kurz nach unserer Ankunft schon geschlossen, was unsere Kinder sehr schade fanden, aber dafür hatten wir dann den einen Strand für uns ganz alleine.

Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und kretisch mit vielen kreativen Dekorationen und Einrichtung. Die Betten waren bequem und wir haben sehr gut geschlafen.

Die Gegend ist auch toll, der Südosten scheint der Sonnenfleck der Insel zu sein. Während in den Bergen und im Norden häufiger mal dicke Wolken zu sehen waren, hatten wir 10 Tage bestes Wetter. Man kann viele Schluchten durchwandern, was auch unseren Kindern (6,8 und 10 Jahre) sehr gefallen hat. Es gibt viele leckere Restaurants in der Nähe, Emma gibt auch viele tolle Tipps.

Wir können diese Unterkunft auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen!

We had a fantastic stay at Emma's Mesodokia home.

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous place tucked away in the lovely seaside town of Makry Gialos. The garden is a special little oasis of pure charm with wonderful sea views, a double hammock and outdoor dining. There is a little cut through to the five star resort Sunwing which my girls had a superb time at. There is also easy access to a big sandy beach. The cottage itself was full of rustic charm, very clean, comfortable and a great shower too. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone travelling to Crete and we will definitely be back. Thanks so much Emma.
