Welcome to Bella Vista

These typical Cretan style apartments are situated on a hillside overlooking the sea on the east coast of the island of Crete. A 25 - 30 minute walk from the picturesque fishing village of Sissi and around a 10 minute drive from the lively resort of Malia. The nearest beach is within a five minute walk from the apartments.

Built in a peaceful location on a hillside, each rooftop forming the spacious balcony of the next, the apartments give guests a panoramic sweep which includes breathtaking sea views as well as mountain views to the sides. The apartments, which have a bedroom, living room and separate bathroom, are roomy, tastefully furnished and fully-equipped with large modern kitchen fittings and facilities. All are surrounded with beautiful gardens.

A lovely big pool with plenty of sunbathing terrace around it takes centre stage, with the adjacent separate children's pool. Colourful sun beds and parasols are plentiful and the pool bar is a few steps away, to ensure you won't have to wander far for refreshments. A more idyllic spot for a restful break is hard to imagine. With its situation in the middle of Crete, this is the perfect base for exploring the rest of the island and visiting the cultural attractions at Knossos, Spinalonga and the magnificent Lasithi Plateau.

The lovely beach is just 800 metres away with its wonderful shallow sea and vast stretch of sand. Sissi and Malia are nearby. All are easily reached by the bus which runs regularly from a stop close to the apartments. After a busy day out, enjoy a cocktail or two at the bar whilst watching the amazing sunset and recharging your batteries before wandering down to Sissi to enjoy the habour restaurants and welcoming bars.

Please note this accommodation is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties.
