Il quartiere

900m from the hart of the picture graphic fishing village of Makrigialos, in the valley of the “White River” and the foothills of the gorge “Pefki”, 3 welcoming and cosy cottages are available for our guests : NATURA homes :

Stepping into nature and historic dwellings,in the area of the the valley of the “White river” and the foothills of the gorge “Pefki", one can find cottages and country homes scarred and hidden around the hillsides.

In the past the cottages were used as a shelter by the olive farmers from the village Pefki, built about 300 years ago and then became abandoned 100 years ago.

The old stone and soil built houses have been renovated and fully restored

Stone, slabs, marble, lime, earth from the gorge, ochre, cypress and olive wood are the natural materials of the island that were used for the construction and equipment of NATURA homes, by local craftsmen, who resurrected old designs and techniques.

The area is paradise for walkers and nature lovers: as soon as you move away from the coast you’re surrounded by beautiful nature with verdant valleys, beautiful mountains, gorges and caves.
The location is spectacular with densely covered mountain sides and valleys giving an intense green foliage.
The valley on the south side reaches all the way up to Analipsi and the stream Aspros Potamos, which the settlement takes its name from, runs through it.

"Makrygialos" in the greek language, means "long sea shore"

It is characterized by some of the best beaches in all of Crete (and that says something)
There are many secluded coves,all gently lapped by crystal clear waters of the mediterranean sea.
The peaceful area,the idyllic scenery,the beautiful beaches and the hospitality of the inhabitants,offers a nice combination for really relaxing holidays,especially for families with children,group of young teenagers,retired couples and youngsters in love.
The area is famous for its natural beauty,which comprises of numerous unspoiled beaches with clear blue water which you can discover at the nearby area
Also,traditional picturesque villages and its four magnificent gorges.
It is an ideal location,since the area combines both beaches and mountains covered by lush greenery and endogenous pine,olive,citrus and carob trees.

A mountain ridge runs West to East across the island and it is this which gives Southern Crete it's own very special climate.
The mountains shield this part of the island from any 'inclement' weather.Additionally Makrigialos itself is surrounded by it's own mountain range.This geography means that the area of Makrygialos, has the best climate in all of Crete,and possibly in the entire Mediterranean.
It is a fact that the area produces what is considered to be the best olive oil in the world.

Un giro nei dintorni

Situated on the south east coast, Makrygialos,is only 35km from the airport of Sitia & 120km from the airport of Heraklion.

There are very dissent, air-conditioned public buses coming from all destinations.. Sitia, Ierapetra and Heraklion.

The village of Makrigialos indeed does offer anything that you might need, but we do recommend that you rent a car so you can explore the surroundings.

The island of Crete is simply beautiful and it is worth exploring it.

Driving is easy and prices of car hire are very reasonable.

For the price of a pre-booked airport transfer for a family of four,you can probably hire a car for a week.if you wish to hire a car,we can recommend the company that we use.We do not take any commotion from them,we just want our clients to be recommended to the companies that offer the best services.

Altre cose da evidenziare

The village Makrigialos and the surroundings, offer a variety of restaurants and tavernas with very high gastronomical standards, based on the local products as well as fresh fish and organic meat.

Myself and a friend had a fabulous time at the White River Home. The place was so cute and authentic and was a great jumping off point for exploring the eastern side of Crete. The town of Makry Gialos was just down the driveway and had all the necessary conveniences. The simplicity of the place suited me perfectly and frankly there was little more I could have asked for as far as amenity is concerned. If I am going to nitpick, I would say that the Wifi was slow, however there is good mobile service if you need a faster connection. Hot Tip - go to the restuarant Piperia in Pefki up the gorge from the house - amazing food and beautiful location.

Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Annas, une amie de Emma. Les deux maisons sont vraiment très mignonnes, décorées avec gout, avec une terrasse ombragée paradisiaque... en hauteur et vue sur mer. Tout près du village de Makri Gyalos, avec quelques petits commerces. Nous avons eu au début un problème de wifi, que Emma a résolu tout de suite ! Le logement se trouve en plus juste à côté des gorges de Pefki qui sont magnifiques... On y retournera, j'espère !

We have really enjoyed our stay at White River Family Home. It is a perfect and safe place for a family (also with small kids). Everything was as described, cozy and comfortable place. Emma has answered very quickly. Absolutely nothing to complain, I would come again. Thank you Emma! I highly recommend the Green Beach and its Taverna Diaskari. We were there every day, beach is just beautiful and their cuisine is best in Makrygialos. Alzbeta (Czech Republic)

Emma was very reactive and ambitious to make our stay a nice Airbnb experience. We booked the apartments with a very short notice –one day before arrival- and even though she made it possible for us to stay. The houses are exactly as pictured and described. The houses are tidy but very nice inside. It was definitely a good experience!! Only downside: WLAN didn’t work. Nevertheless, highly recommended!! Not recommended when travelling with two or more little kids. As homes are small, the family has to be split up between the houses. Furthermore, the houses are decorated with antiques and traditional pieces that are not suitably for little kids (No danger for playing children but risk of breaking old things).

Born in London in the 80's. my early childhood was mostly spend in the old town of Chania during the Summers and traveling with parent in Europe through the winters.
As a teen ager I was living between London and Athens.
I started working as a decorator for boutiques and then took on a full time job in trade and (URL HIDDEN) work demanded that i would travel between Athens -Paris and Milan all year long.
In 2008 I made an investment in Chania,buying a Venetian hall and opening my own designers boutique in the old town.
At the moment,a whole new chapter in my life is beginning… I am creating the possibility to travel long term.
