Why Miriam Marshall chose Makry Gialos
We took a trip to Makrygialos to look for a plot of land, fell in love with the place and had a fantastic villa built in 2010. We have now been to Makrygialos so many times and it just gets better and better. We also find tavernas we haven't tried before and this Summer went out on a fishing boat and caught a 10 kg tuna which tasted fabulous on the BBQ back at the villa.
What makes this Villa unique
When you are at the villa you can relax in the sun or the shade, take a dip in the pool, walk to the beach or explore the countryside. The evening is best enjoyed with a glass of champagne watching the sun setting behind the mountains behind the villa. At night either get the BBQ going or go down to town and enjoy a night on the promenade in one of the great tavernas. Late at night back at the villa go on the roof terrace and gaze up to the sky looking for shooting stars.

Lovely Villa with Beautiful Scenery
Villa Lagada provided the perfect place for a family gathering. We enjoyed our time relaxing by the pool and exploring the surrounding area. The pool took a few days to warm up and on our last couple of days we had great weather and loved being able to swim outside in April! There were a couple of technical issues with but the management company responded promptly to each of them. The locals in Makry Gialos are so warm and friendly. This holiday was one of the best ever for our extended family.
Many thanks for this lovely review. Sincere apologies for pool taking a couple of days to warm up and the technical issues with outside lighting. I am not sure if you were aware but up until a couple of weeks ago the local village was almost cut off due to the tremendous amount if rain that experienced that caused flooding and all the businesses to close. Unfortunately the whole village had no electric for a while and this may have been the reason for the pool heater not working initially plus having to have the outside lights repaired.
i hope to hear from you again as the pool is now working perfectly and the as you said, Makrygialos has some great people and is a also a beautiful place to visit.
Well equipped 5 star villa with so much space in and around the Villa.
Thank you very much, glad you enjoyed the villa and we hope to see you again in the future.
