Nous avons passe un merveilleux sejour pendant l'automne 2014 dans la Villa Ikaros. Nous etions devant une belle plage (baignade tous les jours) et nous nous rendions a pied dans les tavernes et commerces du village. La proprietaire est tres accueillante et nous a donne de tres bons conseils d'itineraires pour notre sejour.
La maison est tres agreable et silencieuse (a part les vagues si on laisse la fenetre ouverte.
Nous reviendrons dans les memes conditions, c'est sur !

nous avons encore* passé 2 semaines magnifiques dans cette belle Artémis- villa et nous sommes repartis revigorés:- la beauté de la vue sur les montagnes et la baie, tout spécialement lors du coucher du soleil,- la tranquillité du site et le fait qu'on ne met que 4,5 minutes à pied jusqu'à la plage pratiquement pour nous seuls, qui invite au bain avec son eau cristalline, mais n'a jamais des vagues trop fortes, juste assez pour se sentir dans la mer -le jardin qui offre à la fois de l'ombre mais aussi une belle piscine ensoleillée, - la proximité, sans nous encombrer, d'un centre atteignable à 4 km de voiture (Makrys Gialos) - mais surtout: la gentillesse de la famille propriétaire qui se met en quatre pour vous rendre le séjour agréable et qui est toujours atteignable ,par tél portable, pour vous donner aide ou conseil, où que vous soyez sur l'île, et déjà avant, pour la location de voiture, par exemple. Bref, nous devrions garder ce lieu secret, mais nous vous faisons la faveur de vous le recommander!

nous avons passé de nouveau 2 semaines dans Artemis house: à 3, avec notre fille adulte, Genève Suisse
Tout d'abord un grand merci au propriétaire. Nous étions à ikaros villas situé à makrigialos. L'appartement était spacieux (nous étions deux) avec une belle terrasse donnant sur la mer. Un studio au calme avec une plage très agréable avec peu de touriste. Nous y avons passé une semaine et tout était parfait. Je vous recommande cet appartement, ainsi que le petit restaurant juste à côté qui était délicieux et très calme !!

We spent fantastic holidays in this so beautiful place, booking two villas Aeolus and Athena, from the 26 of july to the 9 of August 2014.
Villas are located on the top of the hill, dominating the bay of Makrys Gialos. Several beaches were practicable in a short course. A lot of marvellous sites to visit were available around. A car is mandatory to get the village of Makrigialos for shopping.
The two houses standed alone but not isolated and we needed only 5 minutes to go down to the beach with its cristalline water, standing alone even in high season.
The interior of the houses was efficient and well equiped, with a bathroom (shower and toilet) for each bedroom particularly appreciated.
In the garden, a little shade every time in the day could be founnd and the porch gave you both: protection from the sun and the wind. A pool was available for each villa, large enough for swimming. The terrasse (+barbecue) with its fantastic view has been delighfull.
The owner family was particularly friendly, Nota and her daughters being reachable by cellphone,if necessary. Nota has been of great help to make appointement with a dentist in urgency ...
These locations have been greatly appreciated and we strongly recommend to try them very quickly!

Aeolus + Athena
We spent beautiful holidays in these marvellous site.
Artemis house is situated on the top of the hill, dominating the bay of Makrys Gialos.On the right of the bay the typical greek mountain ranges offering every evening a splendid spectacle of the sunset:.
The tree houses stand allone but not isolated and you need only 4,5 minutes to go down to the beach with its cristalline water, this sandy beach, with little coloured stones is "for you alone", in september (and its nearly the same in the high season).
The interior of the houses is simply but well equiped and pleasant.With a bathroom (shower and toilett) for each bedroom you have your privaty even when there are 3 or 4 couples, but its nice also for a small group!
In the garden you can find a little shade every time in the day and the porch gives you both: protection from the sun and the wind ,if necessary. There is also a barbecue. We liked the pool which is deep enough for swimming, and of course the terrasse with its stupendous view.
The owner family is very kind and helpful, you can reach Mrs Nota by cellphone at any time ,if necessary. She will help you to resolve all your little problems, even befor your stay: advising you for a Hotel in Heraclion, car rental, restaurants, etc...
Artemis house is a little paradise!

I wanted to say THANK YOU to Nota and her daughters for all the hospitality and assistance during our stay. We spent 1 week in Athena Villa and 10 days in Diadalos maisonette, both properties are very nice. The pool in Athena is great, we enjoyed swimming in the evenings, and the view is really great. <br />
Diadalos is in the town, so it's close to both beaches, sand and pebble, the are lots of nice restaurants and small shops around. <br />
The hosts are very kind and always ready to help, whether it is groceries shopping or arranging taxi, or any information around the town.<br />
Makrigialos itself is a very quite and charming town, people there are very nice and hospitable, the beach and the sea are perfect for small children and families, it is a piece of paradise!<br />
Thank you, Nota, if we ever come back to Makrigialos, we will defenetly stay in one of the properties. <br />
