With the charming postcard aesthetics of a secluded Mediterranean villa, The Mikro Village combines contemporary resort amenities with a charming Grecian seaside background. On the eastern edge of Crete, less than kilometre from the beach, the establishment’s alabaster walls sit alongside apricot roof tops and the greenery of well-manicured gardens. Catering for families, the large swimming pool cools adults, while facilities such as a tennis court and a gym keep muscles warm and kids occupy indoor and outdoor play areas.
Setting up camp in one of The Mikro Village's well-equipped rooms, guests enjoy three (£125) or six (£249) nights for two adults and up to two children. Mornings can begin with breakfast, included in the stay, and on Wednesday nights guests can try a traditional Greek BBQ with local entertainment. After enjoying the resorts wealth of activities, holiday makers can relax on their own balcony or by the pool, while the more adventurous can rent a car and explore the island’s sights.

Hotel Mikro Village scores a 3.5/5 from TripAdvisors. Holidaymakers fancied the cleanliness, its homely feel, the swimming pool and admitted to reserving another holiday. Other guests, however, offer mixed review regarding the walking distance to Crete’s centre.
A wonderful little village. Beautiful swimming pool and tennis courts. Spacious, clean rooms, friendly staff. Really everything we needed for a quiet getaway and not too far from the town when we were looking for something less quiet.
