Makrigialos is a tranquil village, surrounded by historical, cultural and natural wonders ideal for couples and families. The natural beauty of the area is simply staggering with deserted coves and bays seemingly round every turn which benefits from some of the best weather in the Mediterranean.
If you want a taste of the real Crete, this is for you. It is the complete opposite of Malia, it is not commercialised or filled with nightclubs.
Makrigialos has a small, lively harbour that comes alive at night with numerous local restaurants and cafes serving the finest local food. Local waterside tavernas welcome you with cool drinks and delicious food.
The nearest towns of Ierapetra and Sitia both have busy water fronts with cafes spilling out onto the promenades. Both have good shopping, but if you want to go a step further, Heraklion offers shopping to international standards. The area offers all manner of activities & water sports. Including pedal boats, jet-skis, fishing boat charters and excursions to the nearby uninhabited island of Koufonisi are available during the summer.
Places to visit include a number of Roman and Minoan ruins; The Kapsa Monastery, 6km along the coast near the spectacular Pervolakia gorge; the mountain villages of Pefki, Agios Stefanos and Pervolakia; the protected gorge of Aspro Potamus; the Butterfly gorge, a 4.5 km walk from Koutsouras; Sitia, with its pleasant sea front lined with cafes and tavernas, a harbour, and the Roman Fort; Ierepetra boasts the longest beach on Crete, has a museum and the remains of a Venetian fort on the quay; Agios Nikolaos, Elounda, and Spinalonga Island are within easy reach.
About Gavin & Louise Noble
We live in Ireland and have two young daughters. We love to travel and our philosophy behind ‘The Studio’ has been to offer our guests the high standard of luxury rental accommodation that we look for ourselves whenever we travel. We take great pride in what we offer to our clients and we strive to present the property to the highest possible standard.
Gavin & Louise Noble purchased this apartment in 2009
Why Gavin & Louise Noble chose Makry Gialos
When we first visited Makrigialos, we immediately fell in love with this quiet and unspoilt area of Crete. We purchased The Studio as our home away from home. It is a truly magical place; the views from Bayview are just unbelievable; and the combination of style and available amenities offered to us were everything we wanted for ourselves and our guests.
What makes this apartment unique
The Studio is our home away from home, as well as a property available for rent. This is why it has been designed to be luxurious & individual, and not a generic rental property.
