The villa is charming. Very close to tavernas. Very quiet at night. Excellent pool. Just loved it. Would love to stay again but the world is a big place. Excellent service from the team back in the UK.

We had a great stay. The villa is perfect for a two family stay with two separate entrances for what could very well be described as two apartments. The owner Spiros has the taverna Vatalos closed by and are very nice and helpful with both taxis and car rental. We celebrated my birthday at Crete and had a nice evening for which the Taverna donated a birthday cake.

What a fantastic holidays we have spent at Villa Selini. The villa is modern and luxurious. The interior and the exterior are fantastic. The view is stunning, taverns in the village are great too. The villa is only a couple of minutes to Rethymno city and Maria and her team are doing a superb job. Many thanks for this great stay.

The villa provides generous space and every modern implement you need and, above all, two terraces, one on each floor, with a magnificent view of the Cretan Sea, which is only yards away. The owner is a very amiable, unintrusive person. There are 24-h taxis as well as car rentals and buses, and beautiful places worth visiting around. This said, you may get sunburnt even on a cool April day, so don’t forget to apply sunscreen and wear suitable clothes when going out.

About Crete

Villas in Crete

Combine Crete’s claim to have the longest summers in the Mediterranean with its 650 miles of coastline and you’ve got the perfect beach holiday island. 

White, sandy beaches, romantic coves and warm waters – whether you are looking for a beach resort complete with a lively town and amenities, such as a villa holiday in the Lasithi area, or a remote, sun-drenched patch to escape to – consider the Rethymno region – Crete will meet your needs.

Away from the beach, the landscape of Crete will take your breath away; the majestic Samaria Gorge; untamed hillsides; rugged, wild mountains. The tallest of the mountains was considered in ancient times to be the birthplace of Zeus, and the island abounds with mythological references; King Minos and the Minotaur were famous legendary residents, the maze-like Palace of Knossos.

So for ancient wonders, spectacular scenery and a beach paradise, check out our holiday villas in Crete.

9 Photos to Inspire a Holiday to Crete

There is a magical feel to the Greek Island of Crete. Perhaps its the mythical landscape, covered in ancient ruins and old stone churches built into the cliffs? Or perhaps its the almost supernatural quality of the clear turquoise seas surrounding it? Either way there is something special about Crete, the largest of the Greek Islands, and here are 9 photos to prove it...

Clickstay on tour: A summer break to Crete

Greece is home to a variety of islands and various administrative regions; including The Cyclades, The Aegean Islands and many more, each one has its own customs and traditions. But Crete has so much individuality you’d be forgiven for believing it was a country in its own right. Crete is the largest Greek island and the most populated. It brags of a highly varied landscape, with white-sandy beaches, that look as if they have been lifted from a postcard, snow-tipped mountains peeking out in the distance and it’s peppered with bewitching villages. Crete was once home to one of the oldest advanced societies in Europe, 4000 years ago the Minoans lived there and you can still find remnants of their existence, including the famous palace of Knossos. Partnerships Associate Holly travelled to Crete’s sunny coastline and these are a few things she found when exploring the Greek island…
