Individual holiday villas and places to stay in Greece
Comprising a mainland and over 1400 islands, Greece is a country of diverse charms and attractions. Although Athens is a hot and busy city, the chance to view the Acropolis and the Parthenon is a once in a lifetime experience- staying nearby in a holiday rental apartment or villa in Greece will give you the chance to do this at your leisure and pace. Once you have had your fill of the capital then the next stop on any tour must be the Peloponnese – the large peninsula at the base of the Greek mainland. With its mountainous interior and deeply indented coasts it provides beautiful and dramatic scenery for any visitor or renter of a villa in Greece to enjoy, while the sizeable ruins at Mystras were declared a World Heritage Site in 1989. The Greek islands themselves are grouped in named clusters – each of which their own distinct characteristics but all of whom extend the traditional warm Greek welcome and hospitality to any visitor. Experience beachfront villas and Greek island life and you might never want to go home....
The largest of all the Greek islands at the southern most point of Greece, Crete has no less than 1000km of coastline dotted with numerous coves, bays and peninsulas – a travellers delight. And no shortage of holiday rentals!
A holiday villa in the Cyclades is the perfect choice for holiday-makers who want dazzling scenery, entertainment, history, variety, and to see the sun glistening off picturesque white houses with bougainvillea lined windows.
Covered in greenery and beautiful landscapes, surrounded by crystal clear waters and magical beaches, the Ionian islands are a superb place to kick back, relax and get away from it all.
Often overlooked in favour of the islands, the Greek mainland has so much to offer the visitor and is scattered with beautiful holiday rentals. It is a wonderful combination of sea, and mountain, with stunning nature found all over the country.
The most southern peninsular of Greece, the Peloponnese is a very beautiful and popular holiday rentals destination, steeped in history and folklore, and home to many of Greece’s best archaeological sites.
Just a hop, skip and a jump from vibrant cultural Athens but with their own beaches, bars and sea views, holiday rentals in the Saronic Islands have something for everyone.
More about your Greece holiday..
A holiday villa in Greece here is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the local culture and spend time in local towns soaking up the atmosphere, before visiting local markets for your evening meals in your villa or self catering apartment. The Cyclades are probably the most famous group of islands with Mykonos, Naxos and the stylish Santorini being part of the group. On the whole they offer great self-catering or resort accommodation and any number of tourist facilities for those who need entertainment. The Ionian islands (Corfu, Paxos and Zante to name three) feature more family style opportunities and many of the holiday rental accommodation there matches this market with villas, beach houses and cabins all available at excellent rates. Apart from these are other groups such as the Dodecanese which can be quieter still – and therefore the perfect place to relax and enjoy a villa in Greece in your own private holiday rental paradise. Do your research, and whatever type of holiday you're after, chances are that one of the Greek islands, or the mainland, will tick all the boxes...
