Make a holiday rental apartment or self catering holiday home in Cyclades Islands, Greece your home away from home

The Cyclades Islands are a collection of 39 Greek islands in the Aegean Sea. 24 of the Cyclades are inhabited, the most famous of which are Andros, Naxos, Paros, Santorini and Tinos. Holidays to Cyclades Islands are considered to be some of the finest, most luxurious holidays in Europe, as visitors are provided with deeply picturesque, vibrantly coloured scenery, an excellent climate and a warm welcome, not to mention the fine cuisine and endless sporting opportunities which make taking a Cyclades holiday home so special. Taking a holiday to the Cyclades means that you can perfectly tailor your holiday to be the holiday of your dreams, whether you are travelling as a couple, in a group or family, a holiday rental in the Cyclades can be the ideal base for a romantic break, adventure holiday or peaceful getaway.

Things to do from a holiday home in the Cyclades, Greece

Holidays to Cyclades Islands are all unique, but there are some characteristics which run through the vast majority of the 24 inhabited islands. The architecture is largely similar, so your Cyclades holiday apartment or self catering Cyclades villa is likely to be of the distinctive style of architecture which has grown on the islands. The narrow, cobbled streets which are found in most villages are filled with historical and religious buildings, and each island is inundated with beautiful beaches and archaeological sites.

Some of the best holidays in the Cyclades are sailing holidays. By taking holiday rental accommodation in the Cyclades, you have the freedom and space to explore the whole area by boat, discovering secluded bays, inspiring historical monuments and beautiful villas.

If you are looking to take a holiday to Cyclades for a holiday with great nightlife, a holiday apartment or accommodation on the Cyclades islands of Mykonos, Santorini or Paros would be ideal as there are some magnificent bars and clubs to enjoy, especially on the weekends as many Athenians return to their Cyclades holiday homes for the weekend.

Places to holiday in Cyclades, Greece

Andros is the greenest place to take a holiday home in the Cyclades. It is a beautiful destination adorned with small, traditional villages that always charm visitors. Andros also boasts its fair share of magnificent sand beaches as well as charming seaside towns and bustling beach resorts. Andros is also home to two of Greece’s finest modern art museums.

Naxos is the largest of the Cyclades Islands, and therefore offers the largest range of holiday options, from the quiet to the exhilarating. If this is the first time you have taken a self catering Cyclades holiday rental, then Naxos is a great option, allowing you to discover a little more about the islands, and choose your ideal destination to get a Cyclades holiday home next year!

Paros is one of the most popular places to take a self catering Cyclades holiday home, yet somehow it manages to remain beautifully traditional and quaint. The long sandy beaches and clear waters make it ideal for beach holidays and the extensive hills of the interior mean walkers flock here from across Europe.

There is nowhere better for a romantic holiday in the sun than the dazzling island of Santorini. Taking a Cyclades holiday apartment in Santorini is the perfect destination to bask in the sun with your loved ones.

Weather in the Cyclades, Greece

Summers in the Cyclades Islands are wonderfully warm, with average temperatures in July and August reaching over 30°C. In winter, temperatures remain around 10°C.

Travel to the Cyclades Islands, Greece

There are airports in many of the Cyclades Islands, including Mikonos (JMK), Naxos (JNX), Paros (PAS) and Santorini (JYR). Although some services may run direct from the UK during the summer, it is likely that you will have to change in Athens (SPJ) throughout much of the year.

Unique Traditional Cave House with Stunning Views!

5 of 5
Beautiful traditional cave house offering a very unique experience. It has all the facilities you need and is very well maintained. The rooftop terrace was amazing, with fantastic views across the village and down to the sea, perfect for a dip in the plunge pool and even for my morning yoga session! We would highly recommend the local taverna: Metaxi-mas for delicious Greek food, plus the Mexican restaurant: Senor Zorba with very friendly staff and huge portions, not to mention the fantastic sunset. Santorini has so many places to visit and enjoy. A truly amazing holiday, and we always find the Greek people are super friendly! The only downside was that the path that leads up to the villa can be quite steep in places, so just need to be aware if you have walking difficulties.

Stylish conversion bags of character great views

5 of 5
This carefully and lovingly restored Santorinian traditional house has alot to boast about. First off the accommodation has bags of character and combines rustic charm with all the mod cons you d expect from a holiday home. Complete with a small private pool outdoor bbq area and lovely outside dining area its just perfect for enjoying the Greek weather. And the views from the terrace over the village with its blue domed churches down to the sea are lovely. Inside we appreciated the space. It never felt crowded and the 2 bathrooms were ideal. The owners Christine and Mark live close by and were extremely welcoming and friendly. Whats more they were able to recommend places to eat which we thoroughly enjoyed. All in all highly recommended and good value for money.
