Clean modern well appointed villa. Local Restraunts excellent (Gabbianos and Haris). Weather was particularly good for Oct and very quiet so beaches were perfect. Only downside I can think of is cold pool. Would highly recommend using Grapevines.More

Thank you for your excellent review. You've picked out our two favourite tavernas from the 20 or so in the village! We find the weather in September and October is always particularly good in Makrygialos because it has its own microclimate, which fortunately means the...More

About the neighbourhood
The peaceful and unhurried atmosphere of Makrygialos makes it a great place to escape from the tourist crowds. The village is lively but still unspoiled, and its friendly hospitality means you will be assured of a warm welcome wherever you go. Its long sandy beaches and crystal clear waters are set against an impressive mountain backdrop. With an excellent choice of beach-front bars and tavernas set around its compact harbour area it's an ideal place to experience the culture and enjoy the climate. Makrygialos means long beach - glorious stretches of sandy beach with shallow crystal clear waters that are perfect for children.
Getting around
There are many breathtakingly beautiful walks in the area. One of our favourites is simply to stroll along the promenade past the harbour and up to the headland for amazing views over the bay. Our villa offers high quality self-catering holidays within Makrigialos itself. Do not confuse us with other complexes, e.g. Lagada Resort , which is several kilometres outside the village. The location of our villas means that you can enjoy the fabulous panoramic views from our private roof top terraces, or watch the sunset sipping a glass of wine prior to taking a short stroll to dine at one of the many traditional restaurants that are on your doorstep
