Make a holiday rental home or villa in the Aegean Islands your home away from home

The Aegean Islands lie between mainland Greece and Turkey, with ownership split between the two countries. They are a diverse set of holiday paradises, divided into the Sporades, Cyclades, Dodecanese, Ionian Islands and Crete. Aegean Island holidays are a traveller’s paradise, with huge differences in culture, history, geography and holiday rentals over very small distances. Full of beautiful landscapes and idyllic Aegean holiday rentals, a holiday to the Aegean Islands is exactly what you make of it.

Places to take a holiday rental on an Aegean Island holiday

The Cyclades are the most famous of the Aegean Islands, consisting of 39 islands, 24 of which are inhabited, including Andros, Folegrandros, Paros, Santorini, Sifos, Naxos and Tinos. Famous for their stunning combination of magnificent beaches and lively nightlife, an Aegean holiday rental is the perfect base for an active beach holiday in the sun, where partying, relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery and warm seas are the pleasures of visitors.

Rhodes is another of the more famous Aegean Islands. Steeped in history, the crusader isle of Rhodes lies in the Dodecanese region of the Aegean Islands. The most popular beaches lie on the north and eastern coast, where modern beach resort towns like Faliraki provide every facility, sport and bar needed by anyone in a self catering Aegean holiday villa. The gem of Rhodes is the staggeringly well preserved medieval city of Rhodes, where magnificent crusader castles dominate the skyline.

For outstanding natural beauty, it would be hard to beat the island of Lesbos. An Aegean holiday rental in Lesbos takes advantage of the deep mysterious forests, dramatic coast dotted with magnificently secluded coves and stunning mountains. Once you take a holiday villa here, the warm welcome, delicious sea food and mystery surrounding the island will have you returning year after year.
