About the property

Two Bedroom, Sleeps 3 To 4 Persons

The apartment is stylish and modern and is close to the centre of the village, It is two minutes’ walk to the harbour and 5 minutes to the beach. The apartment is on the ground floor of a two floor block and there is parking on the road above. It has two bedrooms, one single and one double and a sofa bed in the living room. There is a beautifully tiled shower room and a hall with ample storage and a washing machine. The open plan living area has access to the terrace where you can have your morning coffee and admire the blue sea with the small fishing boats coming and going. The kitchen is fully equipped and has eye level oven, gas hob and extractor and a fridge freezer and ample cupboards. Linen and towels are also provided and we even provide beach towels so you can have extra space in your luggage. There are maps and information about various trips and we are also happy to recommend car hire and taxi services.

Year round sunshine and mild winters makes this the ideal place for a holiday destination any time of the year. Agia Galini the pearl of the south with its streets of white painted houses is crowded on three sides by mountains and opens onto an attractive harbour which still maintains its typical Cretan appeal. This small, Labyrinth village built in the shape of an amphitheatre offers a safe and friendly atmosphere by its villagers. The village name Agia Galini meaning St Serenity or Holy peace is also an ideal base to explore the surrounding country side with its wondrous ancient sites of Festos and Gortes and beautiful coast line with many outstanding beaches. It has very easy access to major market towns of Mires and the cities of Heraklion and Rethymno are just about an hour’s drive. The village has a beach with excellent taverns and in the village there are shops, taverns, café neon and bars to cater for all tastes. Come and see for yourself, you'll be hooked!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a very clean well equipped apt. We were a bit worried as the previous rental in a different town did not meet up to our expectations. We were surprised to find a lovely welcome card with a bottle of wine. We had a wonderful 5 night stay and will definetly come again and highly recommend

Lovely apartment in lovely place

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week here. The apartment is great, spacious, really clean and with all you really need for a great holiday. Including a lovely bottle of wine on our arrival. It's really handy for the shops, supermarkets and restaurants and bars in Aglia Galini and just a short walk to the beach and beach bars. The people were very friendly and the bakery at the bottom of the hill was fantastic.

Unless you are happy to sit on a beach every day, you really need a car to see the sites and historical stuff on offer, which seemed a lot further away than we had initially thought. We hired a car for the week and although there is no allocated parking, we were able to find free street parking only a few steps away.

It was really hot whilst we were there and although the apartment has ceiling fans, and the sea breeze on the balcony seating area was pleasant in the evening, air conditioning would have been a real help especially at night. That said we had a lovely relaxing holiday, and would certainly go again.

Cretan holiday

  • 5 of 5

Agia Galini is a lovely village and the apartment is near the tavernas and bars. The apartment was well equipped and nicely decorated and very clean. It is situated on a road with steps without traffic. We had a great time and can't wait to go back again!

wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for one week in this fab apartment in mid August. It has everything you could possibly need. So close to lovely shops, tavernas, beach and harbour. It was nice to stay in the village and very handy as we didn't have to drive if we didn't want to. All the locals were very friendly and no pressure to buy from them, unlike other areas on the north coast. A magical place - will definitely be back. Veronica

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first holiday on Crete and booked Agia Galini because the pictures looked beautiful. Well, we loved it. The apartment is great, spacious and has everything you would need. Toiletries, beach towels and a bottle of wine and fruit on arrival. It,s a stones throw away from the centre of this beautiful village, lots of fab restaurants and nice shops. The beach is a short walk away, with warm crystal clear waters. We rented a car for the day to go on a tour around and visit Festos and Matala. The locals are so friendly. We will definitely be back!
