Travel guide

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.

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…
