Terra Creta Crete villa with landscaped gardens

Villas In Crete

Greece’s largest island is a wonderland of rich mythology and history, stunning landscapes, and unforgettable Aegean beaches. Enormous mountains run down the center of the island like a great spine, dividing it in two. Long, hot summers and mild, pleasant winters bring visitors in every season, and traditional villages, perfect beaches, and fantastic food keep tourists coming back year after year.

Embark upon your own Aegean odyssey in one of our Crete villas. Our range of stunning properties consists of sprawling, opulent manor homes complete with a decadent interior design and luxurious infinity pools overlooking the endless ocean, to family-friendly villas where even the littlest of your tribe are certain to have the time of their lives. Some of these homes are even located on the shore, so you won’t have to go far before your toes can sink into warm sand!

Every need and desire has been carefully considered in our range of Crete properties, so you can get on with enjoying a perfect vacation.
