Are the cramped spaces of a room too small for you? Do you prefer accommodation with a separate entrance for more privacy? Forget hotels, the ideal accommodation for your vacation in Greece is an apartment or a holiday house.
Finding interesting offers is not difficult, especially if you book well in advance: villas and vacation homes are very common in Greece and represent an excellent solution for a stay of comfort and freedom. The most popular ones are located in front of the sea or directly on the beach and are equipped with swimming pool; the studios, furnished in typical Greek style, combine price, charm and practicality.

They are located in the most beautiful locations of the Greek islands and mainland Greece and have been chosen from the top rated hotel booking sites. They stand out for great reviews and high scores in all key factors of choice: location, value for money and charm.
They all offer modern services and amenities, including reception, air conditioning, wi fi.
