Self catering holidays to Crete

If you want to take your Greek island escape at your own pace, you'll love the freedom of our self-catering Crete holidays. Whether you're looking for a budget-friendly apartment or a luxurious place to stay, we've got you covered. Blessed with a mild climate, sandy beaches and glistening waters, it's no wonder Crete is one of top holiday spots in the Mediterranean.

Your trip to this idyllic Greek island will be full of fun and adventure, whether you're off to the beach, heading for the hills or hitting the nightclubs. And to top it all off, it's only a four-hour flight from the UK. When you choose one of our self-catering Crete holidays, you can take your pick from many of the island's top towns and resorts.

Night owls will love Malia; it's the island's party capital, with a wealth of lively bars and nightclubs that stay open until the early hours of the morning. And there's a great beach, too, where you can sit back and relax or try your hand at watersports (how about water-skiing or banana boating?)

You could also head for sunny seaside resorts like Elounda, Gouves and Stalis. They're all dotted along Crete's stunning north coast, along with Anissaras, which is home to the Zorbas Village and Aquapark hotel. It makes a great self-catering option, thanks to superb spa facilities and the nearby beach.

But if you're looking to get away from it all, then you might want to head for Rethymon; this historic town is brimming with beautiful sights, like an ancient fortress, castle remains, and a traditional harbour and lighthouse. You'll find the Dimitrios Beach apartments close by, and there's room for the whole family here.

Part of the beauty of self-catering Crete holidays is having the flexibility to plan your holiday exactly the way you like it; there's no hotel dining room schedule to stick to, and you can pack in as much or as little to your holiday as you like. Whatever your budget and needs, we've got self-catering Crete holidays for everyone. Why not take a look below to see our latest selection and make a booking today?
