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.

It's down the stairs a bit from the busy walking paths but is so centrally located, so it's great! I would definitely recommend staying here. We rented this property for 5 days and could have stayed longer! The a/c worked great which is important to me as I am always hot! I loved the furnishings and the bed was comfy. I didn't use the kitchen but it seemed to be stocked well. And the owner was very friendly and helpful:) The girl that met us to check us in and also cleaned the villa was also very nice! Overall, I was very impressed and would highly recommend this property!
