About the property

Bijou 1 bedroom apartment in charming village near to attractive beach in Crete

Set in the heart of a traditional Greek village beside a leafy park with a picturesque river and surrounded by orange groves. It is secluded yet close to (50m) a selection of excellent tavernas and small shops with very friendly local people. It is the ideal location for relaxing or for exploring the island.

Nerine is a ground floor apartment of only 4 fully air conditioned apartments and 4 houses on this almost unique setting within Fodele village. It has a double bedroom with french doors that lead to the rear courtyard garden with views to the village church and hills. The apartment is furnished to a high standard to include everything you need from a corkscrew to a tumbler for your toothbrush! There is also a large communal floodlit swimming pool and Jaccuzi for you to enjoy with ample secluded pool side leisure areas which are well furnished with loungers, tables, parasols and chairs. Mandarin Grove benefits from having English Service Managers who are very knowledgeable about the area and are willing to help you enjoy a really good holiday.

A beautiful beach nearby and wonderful views of the mountains complete the idyll. Walking, bird watching, eating and drinking, golf, sightseeing, boat trips, watersports or just plain 'chilling out'! The coast and Fodele's attractive sandy beach is only 3 kms distance, or for the more active guests there are lots of enjoyable walks into the countryside or scuba diving in the nearby resort of Agia Pegalia if relaxing by the pool is not for you. The local shops and tavernas are only short picturesque walk either through the nature park crossing the stream or following the path alongside the stream to the village centre. With good local tavernas, glorious scenery and small but delightful resorts closeby Mandarin Grove is perfect for those wishing to combine a relaxing/active holiday.

We had an excellent holiday. The apartment was easy to keep clean and had everything you could need on your holiday. Angie & paul were brilliant and really looked after us ensuring that we felt settled and at home. Smoothie George - well what can you say. Met loads of fab people had two excellent pool parties and am now proud to be a member of the Smoothie George page on Facebook.

Would definitely go back, thanks Joe and Sandra for letting us stay at your lovely apartement.

Crete is the largest of the greek islands and is the most southerly point in Europe. It has a wonderful climate with long hot summers and short, mild (though unpredictable!) winters. It is awash with fascinating history dating back to Minoan times. The famous Knossos Palace, said to be one of the most important archaeological sites in the world, is sited close by in Heraklion where there are several excellent museums to visit. Crete can lay claim to the birthplace of Zeus, and Fodele, (on a slightly more mortal plane!) to the birthplace of El Greco.

For a slice of more recent history, visit the old hippie colony of Matala with its beautiful beach and ancient caves where the hippies used to camp out! There are so many places of interest here that people come back year after year. For more earthly pleasures, we have golf (a PGA course 35km away), watersports (diving, windsurfing, waterskiing, banana boats etc.
