Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Sissi, Crete your home away from home

The village of Sissi is a very picturesque seaside village, hidden from the tourist crowds in the east of Heraklion, Crete. Without the constant threat of a tourist invasion, Sissi retains its wonderfully peaceful, traditional charm. Surrounding a delightful little port, Sissi is truly idyllic, and anyone who finds themselves in Sissi Bay, Crete, will instantly fall in love with this hidden corner of Greece.

Things to do in Sissi, Crete

Sissi is a village of unending charm. Many Cretans converge on its seaside restaurants during the evening, a sure sign that these restaurants really do serve the finest of local dishes. Fishermen’s wives can still be seen sitting along the pier cleaning the day’s catch in preparation for serving, and time passes blissfully slowly all year round. The stunning hotel garden somehow manages to make Sissi Bay, Crete, even more picturesque, and if the amazingly deep, clear waters of Sissi Bay seem too good to resist, there is even a small beach across from the port. These waters are magnificent for swimming in, as they are always calm and sheltered as well as refreshingly clean and clear to boot.

The rugged, wild landscape of the Heraklion region are a outdoor enthusiast’s dream. Consisting of dramatic gorges, soaring mountains and a rocky coastline inundated with coves, caves and little beaches, the surrounding countryside of a self catering Sissi villa is ideal for walking, horse riding, mountain biking and in places, mountaineering. Walking and riding from Sissi is a fantastic option, especially as the area is adorned with amazing historical and natural attractions. The archaeological site of Malia is well worth exploration, as is the Milatos Cave and the beautiful monetary of Saint George of Selinaris.

Family holidays are always a joy from Sissi accommodation. There are a great range of water parks, beaches, water sports centres across the region, easily accessible and well staffed. Keeping children engrossed, happy and active has never been easier from a Sissi holiday rental, but if you are looking for a romantic break with your partner, with plenty of exquisite restaurants and views of indescribable charm, a self catering Sissi villa is the ideal answer.

Places to visit on holiday in Sissi, Crete

A holiday rental villa in Sissi Bay, Crete, is a true haven of peace, but if you would prefer a night of vibrancy or a day filled with activity, the towns of Malia and Hersonissos are just a few short miles around the coast. Hersonissos is home to a couple of excellent bars and nightclubs should you, or any member of your family, require a night out, and you can find all your shopping needs catered for within the town.

Travel to Sissi, Crete

Heraklion Airport (HER) is the main airport in Crete, and is located just 40km from any Sissi property rental. First Choice Airways, Eurocypria Airlines, Monarch Airlines, Thomas Cook Airlines, and ThomsonFly all provide direct flights from airports in every corner of the UK, arriving directly into Heraklion.

WOW!!

5 of 5
This villa is fantastic - possibly the best we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in many! Ellen, the owner, had arranged for the caretaker to meet us in nearby Elounda so he could guide us to the property. Our evening flight was delayed by 2 hours, but Scott managed to be charming even at 1 am. We were instantly impressed by the villa, and eventually went to bed without drawing the blinds. Upon waking the next morning, the first word that came to mind was simply "WOW"!! The view is incredible - simply beautiful. All the main rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and the architect has successfully maximised the impact of the view. We just rented the main villa - the three double bedrooms are all extremely spacious and have huge fitted wardrobes, with plenty of hangers provided.  The villa was spotlessly clean when we arrived and was cleaned three times during our two-week stay. The mid-stay cleans were very thorough, no mean feat with so much glass to polish! The pool is lovely, much longer than is usual in holiday rental and so you can swim significant distances without getting dizzy. The villa is really well equipped - a real "home from home". Everything you might need (eg, supplies for dishwasher and washing machine, herbs, spices, loo roll etc) is provided. Elounda is a lovely small town with plenty of very good restaurants, a nice beach and a selection of boat trips to enjoy. We loved this part of the island and Elounda was a good base. I would certainly recommend this villa!!

Stunning villa!!

5 of 5
We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this villa. Michael & Sarah have been excellent hosts with great communication. The directions that they provided to get to the villa from Heraklion airport were spot on, we found it with no problems at all which is always a good start when staying somewhere new. We were overwhelmed with the beauty of the villa when we arrived, the landscaped gardens are stunning. The villa gave masses of space for our family of 5. The beds were the most comfortable that I have slept on in all our years of holidaying in villas, resorts & hotels. It is always disappointing to stay somewhere that looks great but where the beds are uncomfortable, not here, proper beds & lovely pillows! Being someone who doesn't sleep well this is a big issue! A good nights sleep had by all. The villa is near some fabulous beaches that are really only a few minutes away by car, Well worth the 5 minute drive. The villa is in a beautiful location, near to the lovely town of Sissi which has a great selection of Taverna's, bars & shops. It is also close to the new national road so the access to other parts of the island is easy & not too far from the airport at Heraklion. I would recommend this villa highly, we loved the villa, the area & its proximity to Heraklion & some lovely beaches. A great area for a family holiday in a truly luxurious villa!
