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.

Der Weg dorthin führt durch eine schmale Strasse bergauf. Die Villa ist durch einen Sichtschutz ausreichend eingefriedet und gegen unliebsame Blicke geschützt. Lediglich das dreistöckige Haus des Vermieters befindet sich etwas höher gelegen auf der anderen Straßenseite, was aber auch überhaupt kein Problem darstellt. Der Vermieter ist sehr zuvorkommend und aufmerksam, die Kommunikation in englischer Sprache problemlos. Die Villa ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Im Oktober hat man leider auf allen vier Terrassen vormittags keine Sonne, auch ist der Pool nicht beheizt ist dann einfach zu kalt. Im Sommer ist dies mit Sicherheit eher willkommen. Panormos hat zwar nur einen kleinen Sandstrand, ist aber dennoch empfehlenswert, weil eben nicht überlaufen. Zudem befindet sich im Ort eine sehr gemütliche Gasse mit einer überschaubaren Anzahl von kleinen Lokalen, die nicht mit leckerem Essen geizen und zudem noch moderate Preise verlangen. Aufgrund der geografischen Lage ein ausgesprochen guter Ort, um Ausflüge in alle Richtungen der Insel zu starten.

The property was in excellent order when we arrived and the managers popped round to check all was well. We also met the owner which was a bonus. This villa offers a great range of kitchen equipment for self catering and is the only villa we have stayed in that had a range of very sharp knives. The private pool and terrace was a real bonus and was spotless. The information on their website and in the villa was really helpful. The beach at Almirida with its bars and and restaurants is very near and easily accessible. Don't miss the Pear tree which provides excellent fresh food. The instructions for travel and finding the villa were spot on. Our thanks to all for a lovely holiday!

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!
