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.

                                                        This was our second stay with Christina at Oia Ellis and again we enjoyed every minute of our two weeks in our beautiful apartment. Breakfast and evenings on the terrace, chats with our hostess and the odd glass of wine in her beautiful café made our holiday just about perfect! Thank you Christina.

                                                        Nice, quiet and friendly traditional Greek village to spend your holiday in tranquillity

                                                        4 of 5
                                                        We enjoyed every moment of our 6 days holiday in the Rhodes island. Malona is a traditional and quiet Greek village, where random strangers go out of their way to help you. A nice sandy beach (not very quiet) and a gravelled beach (nice and quiet) is just 10 minutes drive from the property. This village is almost in the middle of the island, so no place you want to visit is too far away from here. But you must hire a car, as public transport is either less than optimum or nonexistent. Our host was an exceptionally well mannered and helpful gentleman Martin, who is the best combination of British intellect and Greek hospitality. Overall a unique, laid back and thoroughly enjoyable holiday experience.

                                                        Wir machten zu acht einen Urlaub in Rhodos und mieteten dazu diese Villa. Sie war genauso wie hier beschrieben. Die Ausstattung ist hochwertig und die Villa war sehr sauber. Die Anlage ist groß und liebevoll gestaltet. Auch der Kontakt zu den Vermietern der Villa war sehr gut und stets höflich und freundlich. Wir wurden mit einem kleinen Briefchen, in dem Tipps für Sehenswürdigkeiten standen, willkommen geheißen. Wir werden diese Villa im kommenden Jahr wieder mieten und daher empfehlen wir sie zu 100 %! Die Lage der Villa ist nicht nur wegen der atemberaubenden Aussicht ideal. Auch erreicht man in wenigen Autominuten viele schöne Plätze, die Rhodos zu bieten hat. Der Tsambika Beach oder auch der kleine Ort Archanchelos ist in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen. Auch die Bucht in Archanchelos in der es eine sehr schöne Fischtaverne gibt, ist leicht erreichbar und wunderschön. Wir bedanken uns hier nochmals für den tollen und sehr netten Kontakt und freuen uns heute schon auf einen erneuten Urlaub in Rhodos
