  • Amazing stay and excellent hosts

    "Amazing stay, the location is fantastic and the hosts are amazing people. The apartment was spacious and extremely clean, we were 3 adults and 2 young children that stay here for a week and we had a fantastic time. The location of the apartment is perfect, it’s located in the quiet town of Cagnes sur Mer, approximately 10 minute walk from the center where you will find everything you will need. The pool was great for the kids and a handy to cool down after a long day of sightseeing. I would recommend this place 100% of the time, everything was great."

  • Conforme aux details

    "Avons passés un bon séjour à Cassis, sous le soleil. L'apart est conforme aux détails donnés dans l'annonce (petit quand meme, ca ferait juste pour 4 pers. adultes). Il est assez eloigné du centre ville/plage -il faut compter 10 bonnes minutes (route en pente assez prononcée, prevoyez une bonne forme physique pour profiter pleinement de Cassis). Le + est certainement la vue de la terrasse, plein sud. Calanques et Cap Canaille peuvent se faire a pied (encore une fois: si assez sportifs), et voiture recommendée quand meme (avons tentés, sans savoir, d'arriver de la gare à pied -mieux vaut oublier ! Une bonne heure de marche, à crapahuter en montée avec de gros sacs; pas recommendé ! Les trains pour Marseille sont frequents, sauf si comme cette semaine, il y a des travaux sur la voie !) L'apart en lui-meme a tout ce qu'il faut (four, micro ondes, lave-vaisselle, tv enorme a ecran plat, internet, lave linge, etc) mais n'est plus de toute jeunesse (surfaces de cuisine abimees et difficile a garder propres et porte de douche bricolée). Rapport qualité/prix: 3/5, mais un point de plus pour la vue sur la mer. La prestation est bien rodée (on sent le proprietaire peut-etre un peu 'blasé' par ces locations et les frais supplémentaires de 15 euros pour le linge et 40 pour le menage un peu 'too much', si on considere le prix deja eleve de la location). En resumé, un petit apart recommendé pour ceux qui veulent une base pour leur randonnées et pour ceux qui veulent profiter d'un petit-dej au soleil."

Greece Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Travel to Greece Vacation Rentals

Greece enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate with little regional variation. Summers are typically hot and dry, and rain occurs mostly in the cooler winter months. For at least seven months of the year, Greece enjoys a warm climate. The most pleasant months are generally May to June and September to October. July and August can get particularly hot, and you will find that most locals make use of a midday siesta to avoid the extreme heat. Many shops and restaurants close between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. which can be inconvenient if you are not aware of this. If you want to enjoy the warm climate and beaches, summertime is definitely the best time to visit Greece. If you have more of an interest in Greek culture and history then you may enjoy traveling in the off-peak season. Many of the major sites are found in and around the capital Athens which can get very crowded during the busy tourist season. It’s often more pleasant to travel around in slightly cooler weather and you can linger longer at the sites and attractions that interest you.

Traveling to Greece Villas

To get to Greece, there are number of different transport options. For travelers from North America or northern Europe, it will be most convenient to fly into Athens and from there connect on to your domestic destination. The Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport is located in Sparta which is just outside of Athens. The airport is the country’s busiest and hosts several international airlines. There are regular daily scheduled flights between Athens and most European cities. Travelers from North America and other parts of the world may need to route via London, Amsterdam or Madrid and then connect to Athens. For visitors from the eastern parts of Europe, there are good rail connections with Thessaloniki which is Greece’s main rail hub. During the summer months, there are frequent ferry connections between Greece and its neighboring countries. Many cruise ships also visit the Greek isles and this is a great way to explore the Mediterranean coast.

Popular Attractions near Greece Holiday Rentals

Depending on where you are traveling in Greece, there is a wide variety of different attractions available. If you plan to spend some time in and around Athens, you can enjoy the many ancient sites the city has to offer. One of the most famous places to visit is the Acropolis which is the site of the sacred rock. This monument dominates the Athenian skyline and can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. It also contains the ruins of the Parthenon. The Agora was once the core of ancient Athens. It was in this large open space that many commercial, political and social events took place. It was turned into a residential area in the 19th century. Although today it is mostly ruins, there are still several interesting sites worth visiting. Delphi is located approximately 100 miles northwest of Athens. It was once considered to be cultural heart of Greece and is linked to several well-known Greek legends.
