Villa Giannis was better than expected. The photos dont do it justice. We absolutely loved everything about it, the pool, the views of the mountains, outdoor areas, balcony... It was fantastic. Thank you.

Very nice place with a private pool which is not visible for neighbors, so it is really very private. Nice sea views. Quite short ride to Chania with a car.

Family from Norwich, United Kingdom June 2018

Villa was lovely, a bit isolated but that suited us. Adele a short drive (or long walk) away and had everything you needed including a Lidl. Tavernas lovely, (check out The White Lady) and beaches great. Bedrooms in villa spacious and plenty of hanging space for clothes. Kitchen easy to keep clean and has everything you need. Plenty of Crockery, glasses and cutlery. Also lots of plug adaptors in villa which was very handy. Pool lovely, warm and very clean. Only problem we had was getting into villa when we first arrived as key safe wouldn't open. Took a little while to track down owner but eventually everything sorted ok. If you have a problem the cleaner lives two villas up and has spare key.

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.

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…
