Overview

Property

Updated: 21-Nov-2016
Villa in Makris Gialos, Lassithi, Crete, Greece - Beautiful, Peaceful And Private Location, 10 Mins Walk To The Beach And Village Centre

REGISTERED VILLA: LICENSE NO. - MHTE 1040K91003023501

Villa Lyronda is situated high up in an area of outstanding beauty ideal for walking and sightseeing and yet only minutes from the sea. The climate is one of the mildest and healthiest in the whole of Europe. Summer days awash in brilliant sunlight, swimming in clear calm water and nights redolent of jasmine and honeysuckle. Makris Gialos is now considered to be one of the loveliest resorts in south - eastern Crete. There are beautiful and extremely safe beaches. The village has numerous tavernas, bars and cafes and also a variety of shops. Our villa benefits from a south facing dolphin shaped pool with poolside lounges, chairs and tables for comfortable outside living and relaxation. There is a stone built BBQ and bread oven for that 'pizza' evening! There is also a wet room to come into from the poolside as well as a fully equipped utility room accommodating a washing machine, dryer and ironing facilities. The villa is fully centrally heated for those winter evenings.

Amazing views and pool

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our three week vacation in Crete and stayed at Villa Lyronda the last 9 days of July. We are a family of five (2 kids, 2 adults and 1 senior) and the house was very roomy and comfortable for us. It has great views of mountains and/or sea from every window and balcony. The pool was lovely and perfect for the kids. The house is very well equipped with full size appliances, towels, dishes, etc. The location is great for sight seeing on eastern Crete while driving through gorgeous and dramatic landscape. We were within 5 minutes drive of great beaches but we also loved spending time at the pool surrounded by the beautiful views. The owners were extremely helpful with tips, advice and recommendations. We would definitely stay at the villa again.

Lyronda

  • 5 of 5

The villa is situated up the hill about 10 minutes stroll from the beach and tavernas and is one of three. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The position is great, with views to the mountains and the sea. The Dolphin shaped pool is fantastic for kids and adults alike and the local beach is sandy, very safe and shallow enough for small children.

Overall the villa and location is beautiful, but be aware it is nearly a two hour drive from the airport although there are plenty of places to stop and eat and the scenery is stunning, well worth it.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Terry for your great review and for looking after the villa as if it was your own! We absolutely love the place, Makrigialos, which actually means 'long beach', the area/people/beaches etc.. Its very satisfying to hear your views and makes up for all the hard work it takes to present a beautiful holiday base for discerning people! Hope you will return as there is much more to see and do. Best Regards Ron and Linda

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

So difficult to express just how much we enjoyed our stay in this beautful villa. The facilities were excellent and everything was really clean. Lots of information and recommendations for local attractions and tavernas were provided in the villa which we found very useful for planning days out or places to eat. The villa is quite secluded which certainly added to its charm for us but within walking distance of the town. I can't recommend this villa highly enough and would certainly book it again if we were going back to Crete. Thank you Ron and Lynda
