Hi,

My family (wife and two kids) are thinking about going to Crete for a two or three weeks in late August or early September and would prefer to rent a summer house, rather than stay in a hotel if this is possible. Does anyone know of someone (agency perhaps) that rents out summer houses on Crete?

Thanks,

John

I don't know which area of Crete you are thinking about for your holiday but this company

http://www.villascrete.co.uk/

offer villa rentals in the Apokoronas area in the North West.

A search on Google will bring up many results for other parts od the island.

For your own safety check that any house that you rent has an OET (Tourist Board) licence

Thanks. I did of course try Google but I was looking more for a personal recommendation etc.

I'm pretty flexible when it comes to location. I've been to Crete a few times but it's been a while and I feel the urge to go back. Last time I was there was in the early 90s when I spent some time travelling around the island. I spent a good number of days in Paleochora in the south which seemed a pretty good location at the time and I guess if anyone could recommend villa rental there, then that would be great.

Try Agias Paraskevi in Southern Crete, off the tourist track, quiet, lovely beaches, and some nice taverna's, but no disco's ...thank god.
If you need more info on that area just ask :mellow:

We've done it a few times but always through an agency

We stayed in Stavros with Simply Crete at Artemis Apartments. I don't think Simply go there any more

Next time we were in Ton Mari in Paleochora

Nothing wrong with it, but wouldn't stay there again

We stayed in Alianthos at Tersana and I really like it

(those last two were through Simply as well)

We then switched our allegiance to Freelance and stayed in the Harbour apartments in Paleochora

(this is my pick of the lot)

We stayed with them in the Hotel marina village at the other end of the island

and lastly we went to Chania at Easter one year and stayed on the Harbour- also through Freelance

Hope this helps
