On the largest Greek island: recreational apartments on Crete
Many airlines fly to the island daily, so you usually land at the international airport of Heraklion before you drive by rental car to your apartment in Crete. The island has an area of about 8.400 km² and offers enough possibilities to avoid a possible holiday boredom: Great beaches, picturesque villages and interesting cities will inspire you, because the island was inhabited already 6,000 years B.C., and since then fascinating temples and residential buildings developed. Many historical buildings bear witness to the past and tell stories from long past epochs. For example you can visit the remains of the palace of Knossos, about 5 km south of Heraklion. Here people settled in the 4th millennium BC and created the huge temple. The most important monument of Crete is the monastery of Arkadi, about 25 kilometres south of Rethymno. It is said that it was built in the 5th century. Also worth seeing are the remains of Phaistos, the Minoan settlement from the Bronze Age, which covers an area of about 8,400 m².
From a private holiday home in Crete to a pure holiday feeling
There are so many historical sites and picturesque places worth seeing in Crete that you could spend an entire holiday just by visiting them. But also the many beaches will inspire you. Take your time and relax, go swimming, snorkeling or diving. The average water temperature of about 27°C in summer will certainly encourage you to spend long days swimming. Among the most popular beaches are those in the north of the island, for example at Falasarna and Elafonisi. A fine sandy beach about 10 kilometres long can be found at Georgioupolis. South sea feeling develops at the beach of Vai. If your stomach growls, you should either buy fresh food in the small shops to prepare it in the kitchen of your private holiday apartment in Crete, or choose one of the many restaurants and let yourself be seduced by the delicious dishes of Greek cuisine. Your next holiday should take you to another Mediterranean island? How about Corsica? There we have among other things also Apartments in Ajaccio in the program.

In 10 min you are at the beach or take just a second to take a refreshment in the swimming pool in front of the rooms.
The place was very, very nice and we had a great time at Georges flats. I can really recommend it because it is close to the airport but also quiet and not crowded.Annemarie reviewed Romantick Suite in Bellevue village in Aghia Pelagia
