Crete is the largest island in Greece, and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean Sea. Its coastline of over 1000 kms offers both sandy and rocky beaches, while inland, there are also impressive mountains, valleys and steep gorges to explore. With a fascinating history and mythology and a rich gastronomic culture, it is not surprising it is such a popular holiday destination. Visitors can enjoy locally produced olive oil, honey and herbs, fruit and vegetables and fish, while Cretan vineyards cover 12.8% of Greece’s wine regions and hold the 3rd place among the 9 viticultural areas in the country.
One of our luxury villa to rent here is situated on the north coast of Eastern Crete, 15 kms from the largest city and the island’s capital, Heraklion, home to the renowned Heraklion Archaeological Museum, housing Minoan artifacts, and Knossos, a Bronze Age settlement. The villa is also just 5 kms from the beaches of Palaiokastro, Lygaria and Agia Pelagia.
Others villa rentals we offer on Crete are close to Chania, and Elounda, all benefitting from beautiful sea views. Last, but not least, we have a stunning new villa to rent in a secluded location at Meakis Beach on the south coast of Crete, and 2 kms west of the village of Arvi.
