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.

Things to do in the Aegean Islands

Holidays to the Aegean Islands are the perfect choice to relax, unwind and recuperate, surrounded by stunning scenery, beautiful beaches and a magnificently laid back lifestyle.

Due to the vast diversity of the Aegean Islands, there is undoubtedly something for everyone. From the peaceful beauty of Evia, Lesbos and Skiathis to the party islands of Rhodes, Kos and Crete, sometimes the best way to explore from an Aegean Island holiday rental is to take a cruise or yacht rental, taking in some of the best beaches, fishing and swimming spots on offer.

Weather in the Aegean Islands

The climate of the Aegean Islands varies, with hot summers drawing people to the beaches, with average temperatures of 30°C. During July and August, temperatures can soar to 40°C. Winter and spring draws walkers and hikers due to the mild dry weather, and winter can be cold, with average temperatures of 9°C.

Travel to the Aegean Islands

Many of the larger Aegean Islands have an airport, so a holiday villa in the Aegean Islands is very accessible from the UK. There are daily flights available from 16 British airports, and cheap flights are available from Aegean Airlines amongst other providers.

No 8 Panorama Seafront Homes

5 of 5
Our holiday in Apartment No 8 was just what we had hoped for. We were a party of 4 and arrived late at night and let ourselves in. The apartment was immaculate and the provisions we had pre-ordered had been delivered, beers and wine in the fridge, milk coffee, eggs, bacon etc ready for breakfast in the morning. The beds were very comfortable and the aircon efficient. The location was peaceful and ideal for chilling out. The swimming pool and surroundings were well kept and cleaned daily and there was an ample supply of sun beds and umbrellas. The restaurants in Panormo village served a varied selection of fresh food that would appeal to all tastes, the village harbour, and sandy beaches were only a 10-minute walk from the apartments. We explored Rethymno Town and really enjoyed the shopping and night life. We also enjoyed a day trip to the South coast and Preveli Monastery. We would not hesitate to recommend the apartments and we have re booked for 2017.

Couldn't have been better!

5 of 5
We had a lovely time visiting Naxos, due in no small part to finding House 120. Warm, cosy, tastefully decorated and beautifully clean, the property had everything we could possibly have needed. The price also included the house being cleaned twice per week (with change of bedding and towels) during our stay - which was an unexpected luxury and made it feel like the perfect combination of hotel and self-catering. Thank you. We can't wait to come back!

A perfect piece of heaven!

5 of 5
This property is absolutely breathtaking and the host couldn't be more welcoming! We had the most enjoyable stay in November 2016. Everything is immaculate, it felt like we were the first people to ever stay there. It has everything you could possibly need for your stay and the host left us some much appreciated goodies including traditional baked goods, water, beer, fruit and muesli! The view and outside space was our favourite part, the upstairs terrace is huge - we didn't use it much as we spent most of our time on the downstairs terrace by the pool. The property has clear views to the sea and feels completely private. The village itself is small and quiet but very friendly and nice for an afternoon walk. You will need a car If you want to explore further. We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning!
