About us


 Villas Crete Holidays Limited is a British registered company based in Hampshire, UK, and represented on Crete by an EOT (Greek Tourist Board) licensed and bonded agent who only works with us. Whilst most travel companies/agencies cover many different countries and/or areas of Greece and Crete , we at Villas Crete Holidays only work in the North West of Crete and we specialise in the Apokoronas region, just east of the historic Venetian town of Chania. The Apokoronas (including the villages of Almyrida , Kalives , Kokkino Horio , Plaka and Gavalohori ) has long been a popular destination for holiday makers seeking a typically Greek seaside resort area that has many amenities, but is far removed from brash tourism.  The area is renowned for its sandy beaches, crystal clear turquoise water, stunning views of Souda Bay and The White Mountains, excellent tavernas, and many archaeological sites and craft co-operatives.


FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions.

This area of our website will answer many of the questions that you may have in regards to your holiday. We start by answering a question that was asked by many of our clients last year:

Is it Safe to Come to Crete?

Some prospective clients appear to be having second thoughts about booking a holiday on Crete due to the Greek economy and the negative news coverage on foreign TV and in the foreign press, which quite frankly has been blown completely out of proportion. Unfortunately much of the news coverage is inaccurate and definitely does not reflect how life on Crete really is. Most of the press reports have focused on the sporadic protests which are in a very small area around the Parliament building on Syntagma Square in Central Athens which is 317km's across the Aegean Sea from Crete. The truth is that life on Crete is still very much business as usual and could not be more different to disorderly protest scenes in Athens that are occasionally seen on TV.
