Crete family villas are considered to be the most popular accommodation option for people spending their family holidays in Crete. Of course, even before the stay, the island of Crete itself is a perfect destination for parents and children, as it offers many opportunities for activities to suit every age. Even without children, big families often choose holidays in Crete, as it is a place that caters to many different tastes: lively tourist resorts and adventure activities for youth, archaeological sites, peaceful beaches and nice restaurants for parents, traditional cafes in the villages’ squares for grandparents, where they can associate with locals. Of course, the whole family gathers in their holiday villa at the end of the day, spending carefree family moments.
Crete family villas are much in request, as they are especially designed and equipped to serve the needs of a family. But, which, exactly, is the factor that allows us to consider an accommodation as a family villa? The main factor is the number of guests. The villas, with a capacity of 8 guests and more, are usually suitable for 2-3 families or one big family.
Which Are The Advantages Of Crete Family Villas?
They are economical
Travelers usually choose to spend their holidays in Crete with their whole family in a holiday home, as it is much more economical than a hotel. Crete family villas are offered in a standard price, according to the season of course, which remains the same, no matter how many persons will stay at the villa. So, if you are 8 people and choose a Crete holiday villa with capacity of 8 guests with a standard price of 150 – 200 euros/day in August, you pay only around 20 euros/person. It is a quite advantageous option!
They are equipped with all modern facilities
Crete family villas, even the more economical ones, feature all the necessary amenities for a family: a private swimming pool with a separate children’s area, a fully equipped kitchen, barbecue for tasty family gatherings, washing machine and dishwasher, satellite TV, air conditioning and central heating. Most Crete family villas offer special facilities for kids also, such as playground and toys for kids, baby cot and high chair. Of course, depending on your budget and the facilities you require, you may choose a more expensive holiday home, offering luxury and special services, such as a private chef, nanny service for the kids, e.t.c.
They are safe
The most important advantage of Crete family villas is the safety they offer. Crete is one of the safest destinations in Greece and Europe and so are the holiday Crete villas. All villas listed on Cretico are certified by the Greek National Tourism Organization and respond to international safety standards. In all of them, you will find a fire extinguisher and a first aid kit. In addition, many villas feature a fence around the pool area for kids’ extra safety.
