Total Relaxation in a Holiday Home on Crete
Steeped in ancient mythology, the largest of the Greek islands sits proudly in the Mediterranean Sea at the juncture of three continents. Explore the island from your holiday home on Crete and find stunning beaches, towering mountains and lush valleys. Crete is well known for its local hospitality and fabulous gastronomy, so choosing a holiday rental here will not disappoint.
Exploring from your Holiday Rental
Crete boasts ornate churches, well-preserved monuments and fantastic attractions. The Archaeological Museum in Chania contains a collection of artifacts dating back to the Neolithic era, while the nearby Folklore Museum illustrates Cretan life in the 18th and 19th centuries. Shop for hand-made leather souvenirs at Heraklion Market, or head to one of Crete’s many beaches for some deep relaxation. The exotic Balos Beach boasts crystal-clear waters, while Falassarna offers long stretches of sand.
Eating on Crete
You may choose to book a self-catered apartment as your holiday home on Crete, but don’t forget to sample some of the island’s delicious cuisine. Locally produced cheeses, meats and olive oils steal the show, but these days you’ll find cuisines of all nationalities in the restaurants. It’s not all about food, either. Whether you choose to sit by your holiday house pool with a glass of wine or head to the beach for a shot of fiery raki, Crete offers the perfect refreshment on your vacation.
Day Tripping from Crete
If lounging around on vacation isn’t your thing, there are plenty of active options on Crete. Hike through the Samaria Gorge then rent a boat to Agia Roumeli, a remote coastal village cut off from the rest of the world. Take a boat trip to Spinalonga Island, or head to the important archaeological site of Knossos. Leave the comforts of your holiday house for a day or two and take a ferry to Rhodes, or indulge in a bit of island hopping to nearby Santorini and Mykonos.
Find enjoyable luxury apartments in Crete
Crete has a lot for visitors to enjoy, from medieval ports to mountain canyons. And staying in apartments in Crete is the best way to see everything.
Find your dream apartments in Crete
Apartments in Crete can be the ideal holiday accommodation for your next Greek adventure. All across this sun-soaked island, you'll find elegant whitewashed villas with pools, parking, and sublime views, offering the perfect base to explore. And there's a lot to see. Crete blends classic beaches and nightlife resorts with mysterious Minoan ruins, Venetian ports like Chania, and vintage railways through stunning gorges. It's a place to wind-surf, hike or dive into vibrant cities - and always hits the spot with UK travellers.
Getting to Crete is simple
If you want to book villas in Crete for a relaxing break, reaching the island is easy. Flights arrive at Heraklion from London, Glasgow, Birmingham, Norwich, Manchester and numerous other UK cities, while Chania is an option as well. Highways allow visitors to cross the island in two hours, so visiting every beach or church should be easy.
Plan your Crete escape for the perfect season
May and June should guarantee good weather without the summer crowds. September and October are fine for outdoor activities and swimming, and should be a relaxed time to visit. If you want to visit Knossos or Chania, booking villas in Crete in November or March could be perfect.
