Holiday Homes In Crete

Feb 25, 2008
Rather than staying at one of the various hotels instead why not book you and your family one of the many villas in Crete. Certainly, there are a number of advantages to be had from doing this and one is that you have more freedom to choose what to do and when to do it. Plus staying in a villa can often save you quite a considerable sum of money as well.

Many people who stay in villas find that it is like staying in a home a way from home and offers them a chance to sample the kind of life that the people who live on Crete enjoy all year round. Plus you choose the pace at which you can explore everything that this beautiful and serene Island has to offer to its visitors.

Whilst staying on the island there are plenty of activities to do as well as museums and archaeological sites for you to visit. During these, you will be able to learn more about the history of this island. But although most of the museums and sites are free to enter, there are a few, which will require you to purchase a ticket.

Also, you need to be aware that these attractions are not open everyday of the week. For example the Historical Archives of Crete Museum in Chania is open from 08.00 to 13.00 each day except for Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Although the above will provide you with the chance to learn about this islands colourful history there are plenty of other activities that one can participate in. For example, if you would really like to have an adventure then why not book yourself on to one of the Pirate Ship Tours. These will not only give you a taste for the high seas, but provide you with the chance to visit some secluded beaches that other tourists on land will be unable to reach.

During the tour on either the Barbarossa or Captain Hook, stops are made where you have a chance to take photographs or participate in the games organized by the ships crew. To further add to authenticity of the trip all crew members wear full pirate regalia.

If this seems like a little too much excitement for you during your stay on the Island of Crete then why not take a Dolphin Tour instead. However, these trips (which last 2 or 3 hours) only take place during the summer months but are worth the time. Along with viewing dolphins in their natural habitat during the 3-hour boat trip, you stop at the village of Panormo where you have the chance to try out some local seafood delicacies if you wish.

Yes staying in a hotel can give you all the luxury that you could ever want. But staying in villas in Crete offers you the chance to sample what life is really like for those who live on the island throughout the year. Also it provides you with freedom to choose what you do and when during the time that you stay there.
