“A week in September/October”
Reviewed 7 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Located just outside a well provisioned, very friendly town with a great beach. At the head of a lovely valley; behind the villa, up the valley, is a fantastic gorge walk to a great little hill top town ( Pefki). At the other end of the valley is the town and beach; you can see the sea from the balcony. It took me only about 15 mins to walk to the beach but I'm 39 and a frequent hill walker and mountain biker. Those who aren't keen on walking would want a car to go up and down to the beach/ or town, but then it's 5 mins and for the peaceful location of the villa, well worth it. You'd probably want a car anyway as Makrygialos is 1hr 45 mins drive from Heraklion
The villa is very well appointed and homely with nice indoor and outdoor areas. One minor gripe was the slightly intrusive noise from the pool filter machinery when outside. I'd very happily stay in Lyronda again and loved the South East coast of Crete and Makrygialos. I would email Ron about the pool mechanism noise in advance of my stay next time though if I was to go back. A great holiday in a great town and beautiful villa. Highly recommended. Ps Georgia, who comes daily to clean the pool, was lovely and seemed to be trying to be as unobtrusive as possible every day, thanks !
