4 bedroom villa to rent in Crete, Greece
March 2020

We had a great stay again. The location of the villa is excellent and the house itself is well equipped and cleaned regularly. Very friendly owners, who also run the taverna just a short walk down the road close to the beach. It is a great location for a family holiday while it is still peaceful and relaxcing. We would recommend a rental car for the stay since Frangokastello itself is a bit remote. We will definitely be back soon!

3 bedroom villa with private pool in Crete, Greece
January 2020

As we planned our holiday we came across this beautiful villa in Crete. Totally not aware what to expect from this villa we took our chances. It all paid off. we were totally surprised by the luxurious interior, here and there a touch of classic, but nice overall. The silence of the surrounding area was in place. Just the presence of the birds that woke us to greet the day. With the children we have done as much as possible, visited places, went to the beach. As a family we spent a good time together.

2 bedroom Rethymnon region villa to rent
January 2020

Being history teachers it was a sublime experience to visit the medieval villages,the bay of Rethymnon, the Military Museum and the two watchtowers. The cobbled streets and the withwashed houses made us feel as if we travelled back in time. We also rented a car and visited neighboring villages. The villa owner was very helpful and made us feel like family.

2 bedroom Rethymnon region villa to rent
January 2020

From the balcony we had such a beautiful sea view. We took our time to enjoy it for it was there for free. the sea breeze felt so great. Fantastic villa, with the different colors that is used to spice up the house. The many flowers in the garden, the greenery around it, have unleashed a certain sentiment in me. It seemed like wanted to stay there forever.

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.

14 March 2019 Posted in General

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…
