Why should you rent a villa with a private pool in Crete?

Crete, the largest Greek island, is located between the Libyan Sea to the south and the Cretan Sea to the north. It covers an area of over 8261km², is 260km long, and has a width of between 12 and 61km. Today it is a tourist destination, but it was once a cradle of European civilisation. Crete, with its balcony over Africa, is still a myth. It is the “island of the gods”. It is believed to be the birthplace of Mynos, who was born from Zeus’ love for Europe and Crete. It is a mountainous and wild island, ideal for contemplation and long walks. It is a raw and untouched landscape that awaits you here, with rocky pine forests, high cliffs and sun-bleached stones, which shine here like no other, and is refreshed by an African wind and an oriental breeze. This island always amazes us. Its cultural and historical heritage is as authentically preserved as its natural landscape. The white stone buildings still stand, as if they breathe an air of eternity over this land that some call divine. These villas for rent with private pool so typical of Greece are waiting for you on site.
