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.

The narrow cobbled streets, local greek shops and beautiful bell towers exceeded my expectations. The villa was the best property I have ever stayed in on my travels. The view from both sun terraces is spectacular taking in the surrounding famous blue church domes together with larger church towers and views across the island to the sea. Nothing was more perfect than eating my thick creamy Greek yogurt and honey on that sun terrace every morning, or sipping different local wines with some tasty local cheese in the evenings. The villa is spacious with all 3 double bedrooms retaining complete privacy from each other. The cave pool is cleverly designed for complete privacy and was a totally unique experience. The kitchen was well equipped for the gatherings I hosted. The surroundings are serenely quiet aside from those occasional magical church bells, the locals warm and welcoming, the villa authentically Greek but so comfortable in its modern renovation. I came for 10 days-and stayed for 3 weeks! Mark and Christine were excellent hosts-from professional transfers, to arranging rental cars, boat trips and facilitating my extended stay-twice! The village itself boasts everything you could want from top class restaurants, fabulous outdoor tavernas in the village square to a mouth-watering local bakery where I whiled away many an hour drinking coffee, trying out local pastries and observing Greek life at its best. Central to all the other attractions Santorini has to offer. I don't ever want to stay anywhere else when I return, which I will soon! This was my first visit to Greece from the USA and the photos of this villa do not do it justice! Quintessentially everything you ever read or dreamed about Greece is contained in a stay at this beautiful villa.

Chrysanthi and Jochen have built a house respecting the traditional architecture of Patmos island. Everything is picked and selected with great love and attention to detail. From the moment we stepped in we felt at home, we felt like we are in heaven... Now we know, heaven is a place on Patmos island and at this very specific house .. Plus, they are both so helpful, friendly and there to help and to recommend all the little and big things that will make your stay in Parmos unforgettable. We will come back for sure next year... One of our most wonderful stays..
