About the property

The villa is modern in design and with first class amenities. Looking down to the village of Aghia Pelaghia with its sweeping sandy beach and typical tavernas the villa is also within a short walk of the secluded bay of Lygaria. You can enjoy romantic balmy summer evenings in the garden cooking on the barbecue as the sun sets and the lights appear in the tavernas. Ideally situated for quick access to the main road which is easily reached from the villa, this road takes you to Heraklion town and its airport (20 minutes away) in one direction, and to the west of the island in the other, passing through the towns of Rethymnon and Hania as it waves its way to Kastelli.

What Crete has to offer: To tempt your appetite Crete is a heaven for those who enjoy healthy eating. Although you can find any food you want on this island, the Cretan cuisine is one of the healthiest in the world producing olives and olive oil, octopus, snails, herbs, goat's cheese and yoghurt, honey, nuts and unlimited kinds of fruit and vegetables. Local wine is produced all over the island, as is ouzo and raki. Crete has something for everyone and the hospitality of its people is second to none. Its history dates back to before the Minoans and there is a wealth of archaeological sites, monasteries and churches to visit. You can cycle, walk, horse-ride, mountaineer, sail, do water sports. Discover the country by car and go to annual events and local festivals. You can dance to Cretan music or disco all night and there are plenty of souvenir shops providing Cretan leather, ceramics, jewellery and fabrics to take home to remind you of this beautiful unspoilt island.

Hyperion Villa (1) - Agia Pelagia

  • 4 of 5

The property was very comfortable, very good air con which is essential, excellent Wi-fi (critical for kids) beautiful views into the Bay. Very convenient 25 mins by taxi from Heraklion, 15 minute walk (leisurely) to the beach and tavernas either Agia or Lygaria, supermarket 5 minute walk (Apostolis) which has exceptional service. Lots to do in the village, water sports, boat hire etc.

Host was very communicative, and his father George is the hardest working man I know! Lovely man, greeting us and making sure garden/pool were maintained, and even telling us of his path which he created to the rocks for sea swimming in complete solitude! George is a gem!

Could do with more sun beds at the pool if more than 2 adults, and also perhaps some furniture on the top balcony at the jacuzzi. The steps to the top floor are accurately described as steep, but fine for us.

Overall a very enjoyable experience, very friendly people, great restaurants nearby, and villa very comfortable.

Our first experience of Crete and very very enjoyable holiday. Thank you Yannis and especially George....David, Eiladh and Keir

great location and wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

Property had everything for our needs and a request made for extra pillows was met immediately, along with a plate of delicious home made traditional biscuits. We were in the upper bedroom which was very comfortable with a large terrace area, although missing some patio chairsand a table. It must also be noted that this is accessed via a fairly steep narrow tread staircase and therefore not suitable for all. However, our party all enjoyed our stay and can recommend this property if looking for a quiet location with great views, but with easy walking access to both Lygaria and Agia Pelagia beaches and amenities.

Alles tiptop !

  • 5 of 5

Die Anlage ist absolut empfehlenswert.

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen und den stets bestens gepflegten wenngleich etwas kleinen Pool reichlich genutzt. Die Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und sauber, die Privatsphäre ist hervorragend.

Die Aussichtslage ist hervorragend, wenn gleich auch sehr windexponiert, wer windempfindlich ist, sollte sich generell einen Urlaub auf Kreta gut überlegen.

Gelegentlich und je nach Wind kann man auch die Musik aus der ca. 1 km entfernten Strandpromenade noch sehr spät in der Nacht etwas wahrnehmen, das war aber nie wirklich störend.

Die beiden nächstgelegenen Strände mit Tavernen, Liegestuhl/Sonnenschirm-Verleih, etc. sind in 10-15 Minuten zu Fuß erreichbar, das Meer sensationell und glasklar ! Die Auswahl an Restaurants in der unmittelbaren Gegend ist sehr gut, und das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis nach wie vor sehr sehr gut ! Und die Gastfreundschaft der Griechen ist wie immer unglaublich !

Das Ferienhaus liegt wunderbar ruhig außerhalb mit tollem Blick auf die Bucht.

  • 4 of 5

Der Gesamteindruck ist sehr positiv, vor allem der Garten und Pool sind sehr gepflegt. Die Küchenausstattung könnte besser sein, die Geräte sind veraltet. Das Badezimmer im Untergeschoss wies einige Mängel auf, das Wasser in der Dusche lief mehr an der Wand herab statt aus dem Duschkopf und die Befestigung des Duschvorhangs war sehr wackelig. Im Gesamten war der Aufenthalt aber toll und wir können das Haus guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen.
