Finding the Perfect Holiday Home in Crete

A holiday to Crete has its fair share of legends, stunning landscapes and historical sites. One of the largest Greek islands located in its southern part, Crete has a heady mix of everything. From inspiring mountains, fertile plateaus and even caves, you’d be far from disappointed. Try spotting a kri-kri in the Gorge of Samaria or listen to the myths told by the locals. You’d enjoy all this and more in the comfort of a Cretan holiday rental, home, or villa.

Enjoying the Perfect Holiday in Crete

If exercise doesn’t bother you, then a brisk walk or climb in the mountains should prove to be fruitful. The fresh air and stunning views of the island will be something you would not forget for a long time. Nestled in the mountains, the village of Audou is perfect to experience an idyllic life or pursue a host of outdoor activities. For those looking to enjoy the sandy shores, head to the Cretan beach. From water skiing, windsurfing, to scuba diving, you’d have lots to choose from. To live the simple life and slow down your pace, you must visit rustic village of Milia.

Exploring Culture in Crete

A holiday to Chania would give you an opportunity of enjoying two different styles of the town. The old walled town is perfect to view the Main Square and explore many cultural sites. You would also get countless opportunities to sample the local cuisine in the many eateries that line the place. The Modern part of the city is good to experience the rich culture of the city. From museum hopping to theatre performances and even concerts, you’d not have a dull moment here.

A holiday to the charming town of Rethymnon is ideal to appreciate the diverse cultural influences evident in its distinct architectural styles. The vast coastline is perfect for that summer beach holiday. Join in the revelry in the carnival in Crete or explore the bustling Thursday market to get a taste of the culture of this old renaissance town. Should you head to the east, you would be pleasantly surprised by its well equipped modern beach resorts.

Lassithi located on the eastern tip of Crete has loads to see, do and enjoy! Listen to the lilting sounds of the lute, violin or lyre and join in the vibrant folk dance of the pentozales. You’d get countless opportunities to discover its rich history and many more to explore adventure. From hiking, caving to mountain biking, you’d not have a dull moment. The fantastic beaches are perfect for waterskiing, sailing and even snorkeling. To see the Archeological Museum or enjoy the spoils of the 5 km Ammudara beach, a visit to Iraklio will not disappoint.

Enjoying Sunshine in Crete

You would be able to enjoy a perfect summer holiday in Crete with temperatures fluctuating between the 20 and 30 degrees Celsius. Even the winter months are relatively mild, should you choose to visit.

Getting to Crete

To reach your holiday rental in Crete, you could choose to land either in Heraklion or Hania (Chania) International Airports. What’s more, you can choose from a host of budget flights flying regularly to the region from the UK.
