“Cycling and Food Heaven”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

There are 4 things we took away from our stay at Grapevines that really made this a fantastic holiday destination:
1) Grapevines itself is ideally located for restaurants, bars and beaches yet still peaceful and the villa was clean and well appointed. There's also plenty of local knowledge to be gleaned from Rosemary who looks after the site or other guests/owners who seem to visit regularly.
2) The people of Makri Gialos are amazingly friendly and go out of their way to give help and advice. There's a very relaxed atmosphere throughout the town, the shops, bars and restaurants. Most restaurants seemed more than happy to recommend other great placed to eat in the area.
3) The food - simple, uncomplicated, extremely fresh and very tasty, The cheese ad fennel pies we had in the mountains were sublime!
4) The cycling. Forget Majorca or the Canaries for your spring training camp. Crete is the place to go. 700 metre climbs start at the back door and seem to be ignored by cars and the road surfaces are generally excellent. The coast road is busier (but not much!) with most drivers moving to the other side of the road to overtake. Up n the mountains we crossed one 20km plateau area and saw only 1 car and if I tell you the climb from Xerokampos had more hairpins than Alpe d'Huez then I'm giving away a secret I really shouldn't. We easily worked out a different circular route from Grapevines for each day of our stay ranging from 25km to 100km. Truly outstanding cycling - book now before everyone else discovers it!!!

We love hearing from our guests and we were delighted with your review. We know it's hard to express the warmth and genuine welcome you receive when you visit Makrigialos and you've captured it perfectly. We hope you are the first of many serious cyclists to take advantage of this wonderful area - and then relax with your partners around the pool or in the village. Many thanks, Jack and Christine
