After the Crete tourist infrastructure climbed level we discovered that apart from the hotels and studios, in many parts of Crete, the fully equipped and furnished houses could be used as holiday rentals. Such a house with private swimming pool and large garden is known as “Crete holiday villa”. Those villa owners adjusted the prices according to the current circumstances and gained the interest of families and large groups who want to spend holidays in an accommodation that could be their own country house.
If the idea of the holiday in a stylish vacation home seems attractive, it would be useful to know some basic differences between this and the well-known hotel room:
Tips for your Crete holiday villa
– Plan your Crete holiday villa for one week at least: Almost all the villas are available for at least a week holiday. If you intend to stay for a weekend, at least for the summer months, it will be very difficult to find a villa available.
– Cheaper that a hotel in most cases: Because of the luxury that the villas offer, combined with high quality facilities, they seem to be more expensive than a hotel-room. However, most of them accommodate more than two adults; you pay the same or maybe less, than the amount you would pay in a hotel of the same class. Villas also have a fully equipped kitchen, so you can cook your own food and not pay money every day in restaurants, taverns and cafes, while some days, you can enjoy the privacy of your swimming pool and not spend money for sunbeds and umbrellas in an organized beach.
– Choose a villa for an extended stay: If your stay lasts for more than one week, it is likely that you will achieve better prices, especially if you book it in low season.
