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

Located on the eastern end of Crete, Greece, Sitia is a historical city of great importance on the island. Known as one of the most beautiful places in Crete, due to its wonderfully impressive historic buildings and almost Caribbean coastline, Sitia is a fantastic place to relax in the Greek sun, with clean, tidy streets full of atmospheric cafes, traditional tavernas and enough shopping and nightlife to keep every member of the family happy throughout your Sitia holiday.

Things to do in Sitia, Greece

The beach at Sitia is a wonderful place to spend the day. The soft, golden sands of Sitia beach are amazingly soft beneath your feet and the bathing is safe, but for better places from which to swim, try taking a local bus north, and you will very soon start to see beaches that could take your breath away. The main beach is within walking distance of any self catering Sitia accommodation, and due to is great length, there are rarely crowds.

The great range of historical monuments in the Sitia region, which date from throughout the ages, are explained and explored wonderfully well in the Archaeological Museum of Sitia, which is a fantastic place to start your historical explorations of the region. The museum is home to many extraordinary artefacts from across eastern Crete, but will so many places to explore, you can’t restrict your historical tour to the museum alone. The Roman fish tanks, Hellenic docks on the Tripitos Peninsula and ancient sacrificial sites of Sitia are certainly worth exploration.

Sitia really comes to life in the evenings, especially around the old port. There is a fantastic atmosphere during the evenings, especially as the locals love to dress up in the evenings before heading down to the beach bars that surround the port. Although tourism does thrive in Sitia, Crete, the majority of restaurants, bars and shops are aimed at the locals, perfect for those wishing to truly explore local lifestyles and cultures. The restaurants of Sitia are awash with local delicacies, especially olives, oils and wines. Those wishing to really explore the culinary joys of the region should head to a Sitia property at the end of August, when the Sultana Festival brings the whole town to its knees with plentiful wine and constant dancing.

Places to visit on holiday in Sitia, Crete

The region’s capital, Agios Nikalaos is a wonderful place to visit from a holiday rental apartment in Sitia, Greece. The nightlife is excellent, and for anyone wishing to have a good night or a full day of shopping, the short journey to Agios Nikolaos is well worth it.

Weather in Sitia, Crete

Temperatures regularly reach into the low 30’s (?C) during the summer months, but thankfully for those of us who prefer temperatures hot but not scorching, summer conditions rarely soar much further. The evenings remain wonderfully balmy, perfect for long evening strolls along the beach or having a meal and glass of local wine out on the balcony of your self catering Sitia apartment, watching the sun disappear over the watery horizon.

Travel to Sitia, Crete

The tiny Sitia Airport (JSH) is an important transport hub in Crete, Greece. Sitia Airport unfortunately doesn’t receive direct flights from the UK, but it is well connected with other Greek airports including Athens (ATH), which makes reaching a Sitia property really easy. There are also regular ferry services from Athens’ Pireaus Port.

Delightful property above Sitia.

5 of 5
We thoroughly embraced the peace and quiet on offer at this house. Both inside and out it is charming and well equipped with furniture, utensils and an outdoor kitchen. Our host Mania, living next door, is generous with her cooking expertise and wonderful food. Georgia did a superb job of meeting and guiding us there after dark, and visited us again to say farewell the evening before we had to (sadly) leave! We enjoyed trips to Kato Zakros, walked the gorge, and viewed the Minoan ruins (and were the only people on the beach); to Vai/Bai and its palm trees a couple of occasions; and to the Toplos Monastery. The atmosphere in Sitia itself is so welcoming that we spent several days there swimming, strolling, chatting and discovering local craft workers. We bring home sweet memories and a bit of a tan....thank you Home Away!

Jasmine house was clean spacious artistically furnished and very very comfortable. Kate and lefteris were perfect hosts always available but leaving us to enjoy our privacy too. Lefteris added to the whole experience with his wealth of knowledge and fascinating conversations. Kate was so generous and welcoming not just providing a beautiful setting but also baking a cake for us. The house was perfect location parking was easy and the roads were completely stress free sitea was just 10 minutes away and very easy to park. Vai and the natural park were wonderful and especially Itanos. With it’s perfect empty beach and fascinating archeological site. I wish we had booked for the whole 2 weeks of our holiday. Just lovely.
