Self-catering holiday rentals in Crete for your home stay

Your choice of Crete as a family holiday will be an occasion you'll remember for the rest of your life. From your self-catering holiday rentals during school holidays in Crete, you'll find the choicest beaches, lapped by the calm waters of the Mediterranean. For many, the pure white sand of the beaches will be the ideal outdoor activity. As for what to do in Crete, you'll be spoilt for choice of attractions. Chania is a beautiful city with, in its architecture, evidence of the Venetian rule of Crete in centuries past. You'll find cafes and restaurants lining the waterfront. As you wander through the old town, it's as if the buildings lean it towards you. Iraklion is much larger as an attraction, and it might be the place for your vacation rentals. Certainly it's an ideal family activity. Spend an evening as the sun sets around the old harbour. The magic of Greece, here in Crete is an easy drive from your holiday apartment. Both these cities arrange cultural festivals from July until September.

Holiday letting in Crete for your short break

Villas in Crete will leave you wanting to stay a lot longer than you've booked for. Many of these are self-catering exclusive properties that come with their own swimming pools for your perfect hideaway to enjoy the hot weather at its best. Some of our apartments in Crete are in city centres, for the best of cosmopolitan Greek life. Others boast spectacular views over bays and mountains. Holiday rental houses in Crete range from those in unspoilt rural locations, perhaps in your own olive grove, to those just a few minutes’ walk from the sea. And it's your choice which side of Crete you'd prefer to be on. For romance, our range of cottages in Crete can't be beaten. There are traditional and modern styles to choose from. Perhaps a self-catering studio overlooking the sea, to relish the great outdoors on your own terrace. Bungalows in Crete offer the luxury of all that you need on one level. It's another choice on an extraordinary island.

The best time to enjoy Crete

Crete has a mild Mediterranean climate that you'll find perfect for your self-catering holiday. If it's a home stay you decide on, you could choose the winter months. This is the time to find the real Crete, without the tourists present. Of course the high season is the summer, in July and August. The heat is on during the school holidays - and swimming pools at your holiday rentals will be much in demand. The "shoulder seasons", spring and autumn, are ideal for those looking for a short break in self-catering accommodation. This is an ideal time to hire a car and explore the ancient culture that forms some of the greatest attractions in Crete. You will return with produce you've found in local markets to make your own Greek feast in your self-catering holiday home in the evening. And with Owners Direct your booking will be safe and
