Vacation in a holiday home on Crete

Crete, the largest Greek island is valued both for its natural beauty and remarkable history. From Minoan palaces to Byzantine monasteries and from the isolated caves to the palm fringed beaches, Crete has every ingredient to fascinate a discerning traveller. Choose from the holiday homes on Crete offering spectacular views of the mountain ranges and dramatic gorges or book one of the pretty holiday rentals on the beachfront.

When to visit Crete and things to do

The best time to take a vacation in a holiday home in Crete is during May. It’s the ideal month for swimming and the mountains come alive with vibrant wildflowers. Rent holiday apartments way in advance if you plan a July or August visit. The best holiday homes are quickly booked up during these months making holiday houses hard to come by.

Walking tours of Crete are highly recommended and kayaking is an interesting way of getting around the island. Scuba diving and snorkelling can be enjoyed at the nearby island of Karavos, ideally during Spring and Autumn. The ancient palaces of Knossos and Mallia are a must visit for history lovers. So is the port of Hania in West Crete, which is reminiscent of its beautiful Venetian heritage. Hiking and trekking along the mountains and gorges are very popular here to destinations such as Lefka Ori, Dikti Mountain and Samaria Gorge.

Where to stay in Crete

Good value holiday apartments are mostly located in the inland villages and along the southern shoreline. For sun and sand, retreating to the holiday houses on the north coast is ideal. Crete’s capital city, Iraklio, with its round the clock party culture is also a great place to find holiday rentals. Kalamaki is also a popular destination.
