Villas in Greece

Greece is a holiday paradise, where the allure of cobalt seas, whitewashed island homes, and fragrant citrus groves awaits. Did you know that Greece enjoys more than 250 days of sunshine a year on average? It is little wonder that a villa holiday in Greece is rapidly appearing on everyone’s destination bucket list. 

With over 6,000 islands and islets scattered across the Greek Seas (of which only 227 are inhabited), there’s no shortage of things to see and do. One of our favourite places to explore is Crete, the largest and most populous of the Greek islands. Blessed with beautiful beaches, lush landscapes, and a rich history, Crete promises an unforgettable holiday experience for visitors of all ages. Without doubt, the best way to enjoy it all is from the comfort of your own private villa. Plunge into a private pool, whip up delectable dishes with locally sourced ingredients in your fully-equipped kitchen, and admire sensational views from your own balcony or terrace.

We’re thrilled to have recently added an exclusive collection of holiday villas in Crete to our portfolio. Simply let us know your requirements and we’ll help you find your dream villa in Greece.

When to Visit Greece

With its Mediterranean climate boasting hot, dry summers and mild winters, Greece offers something for every traveller year-round. For sun worshippers, the peak season from June to September promises endless days of warmth and sunshine.

However, for those seeking a quieter escape, the optimal times to visit Greece are during the shoulder seasons of spring (April to June) and early autumn (September and October).
