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.

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.

The kitchen has all the facilities you need even a coffee maker. The outside grounds are beautiful. The house is built in a cave slightly up a mountain which meant the views across Santorini were outstanding. The terrace was a beautiful place to watch the sun rise. The house is situated in the middle of the island which meant exploring was perfect. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend this house as a perfect home from home

I contacted the owner directly and she came back to me almost immediately. I cannot fault the booking process and communication by text and email was excellent. We were met at the airport by Julian and driven to our accommodation. I was excited to see the property and Iro the villa manager was extremely welcoming and showed us around with great care, offering great tips about the area and supplying her english mobile number which made it very easy to contact her. The property itself is nestled into the hillside and you would have to be mobile if considering staying here as it has many steps and steep hills. It is well equipped with a well stocked kitchen and a great selection of local wine , beer and bubbly was provided, which was a lovely touch. The bedrooms are all cave like in the rock face, tastefully decorated and complete with air con and fans. There are two shower rooms with toilets and you soon get used to the fact that no paper products can be flushed away so bin is provided. The information pack that has been put together is excellent and so useful. We booked a hire car from Sarah the owner whilst in the UK and i would say this is a must. They deliver it to you and pick up when you leave. you need to pay cash though. The WiFi works well in the living room and courtyard , but once in bed in the cave signal is lost. The sun deck pool terrace is accessed up some very steep steps but you soon get used to them. The pool is small and water cold, but very welcoming after sunning yourself. The terrace gets the sun in the morning up until early afternoon, so if you like to sunbathe plan accordingly. The Metaxy Mas Tavern is a five minute walk away from the property and had been recommended by Sarah the owner and she had made a booking for the first evening ( this is a must as without booking you may not get a table) and all I can say is WOW great food, location and such friendly staff. There are specials every night and the menu is not large but has just enough of a selection. Once seated you are given cheese olives and bread cubes and my particular favorite Ice cold Raki which gives you perfect time to select your dishes. There were five in our party so between us we sampled most of the menu and everything was excellent. To finish the taverna brings out sharing deserts on the house, the cheesecake is divine!. A meal for 5 with plenty of wi
