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.

The hosts are super friendly and always happy to help with any issues. Apartment is located in a very quiet place yet very close to a main street. You can enjoy a beautiful view of the sea from a top terrace while having a coffee or glass of wine.This is certainly a accommodation we would recommend for a unforgettable Greek holidays.

We were 2 families with kids and the size was perfect. Plenty of room and space for dining, drinks... Incredible view on the sunset. Beautiful architecture. Fine location: 2 beautiful little beaches within walking distance and 10 min ride to Parikia. Cons: the aircon of the main living area was down when we arrived and was never fixed. As mentioned in the description, the house is not recommended for young children, several dangerous spots (non secured holes and wells). Even for older children, a few locks and caution signs would be best to prevent possible accidents.

Even much better than in the pictures. Comfortable and elegant. The kitchen very well equipped. The bedrooms large, stylish and silent...You sleep very well. The outdoor perfect, , with a big, cosy corner in the shadow and large place to lay in the sun. Naoussa, which is the more beautiful and characteristic town in the island is 5 minutes far. You find lovely restaurants, shops and elegant night life. Also beaches are easily reachable and beautiful. I suggest you this wonderful house. The lady is also very friendly and helps you for any inconvenience.
