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.
