Stylish and comfortable, our carefully chosen villas include all the creature comforts that Simpson Travel includes as standard, from a welcome pack to wifi, as well as a hire car – a must if you really want to get to know this unspoilt and naturally beautiful destination.
Getting out and about
From Minoan ruins to Blue Flag white sandy beaches, pretty fishing villages to dramatic canyons and gorges, when curiosity draws you beyond your luxury villa and private pool, there’s plenty to do. And when you need a break from sightseeing, there’s always a harbourside taverna not too far away.
Near Palekastro, Kouremenos Beach is the place to catch a breeze – a windsurfing hotspot with an accompanying laid-back vibe. Ierapetra and Sitia are the two main towns in a region that otherwise thrives on village life – small communities that welcome guests warmly and ensure that a luxury villa is merely the icing on the cake of a wonderfully relaxing holiday.
