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.

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.

Warm, cosy, tastefully decorated and beautifully clean, the property had everything we could possibly have needed. The price also included the house being cleaned twice per week (with change of bedding and towels) during our stay - which was an unexpected luxury and made it feel like the perfect combination of hotel and self-catering. Thank you. We can't wait to come back!

The views are stunning, the location peaceful, even though the bustling alleys of Oia old town are only a few dozen steps above you (you honestly don't hear any noise whatsoever!). Our pre booked taxi, via Johan, dropped us off 5 minutes walk away and we were met by a very helpful lady. Everything has been thought out nicely, the layout and decor is contemporary and minimalist and fits nicely with the villa location. For what it's worth, I recommend, after a day of pounding the pavements, grab a bottle or two of whatever you drink, and sit and enjoy the early evening views, before getting ready to head out. The biggest compliment we can pay it... we've thought about being there every day since we got back!

The perfect location on top of Korissia with great view at the sea was more we had expected! The Island of Kea is amazing, there is a beautiful hill town and historic ruins to explore as well as several nice swimming coves.We will definitely will come back !
