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.

Pyrgos is such a pretty village with lots of restaurants, quirky shops and art galleries. The flat is in the heart of the village and very easy to get to. The owner was very quick to reply to any queries I had and once we were in pyrgos - Lola- the cleaner, were on hand to help and I could call her any time . We loved the decor of the flat and the jacuzzi was lovely as was the rooftop. Pyrgos hasn't got the mad amount of tourists that you see in oia, which we appreciated . Can really recommend this place

The pool and jacuzzi were maintained daily. Both were well used by us all. The villa's terraces afford some beautiful views of the island and were a great place to relax. However the steps up are steep which may be a consideration for some. Our teenagers tended to stay on the lower level, by the pool, because the Wi-Fi was better there! The villa is in a traditional village and close to local restaurants and mini marts and shops selling some lovely local crafts. Although went on a couple of excursions, we could have easily spent the whole week in the villa and village. With that said, Santorini is amazing. It's a stunning island with some amazing history so it is worth forcing yourself out of the villa for! Our family loved our time at Villa Olivia and recommend it to others.
