Fabulous place to stay in FIra Stefani

“ Excellent ”
May 14, 2014
This is the most beautiful home! We rented the entire complex and the rooms were well decorated and spacious. We has Christina as our housekeeper each morning and she cleaned the house, our mess in the kitchen and supplied new towels each day. Themis showed up every morning to cook up breakfast with homemade jam, coffee cake, eggs and bacon. Everything is perfect. The location was on the caldera side half way down. It was tricky to get up and down each day but the house was incredibly private. On the roof was a gazebo bed that had great sunset views. The management was so responsive and professional. This place is great for large families. We had a family of 9 and had lots of room

Visiting the Greek Islands

The Greek Islands are some of the most beautiful and cultural places on earth. The architecture and landscape is different than any other vacation location. Families can save by getting a rental by owner in one of the Greek Islands. This can be easily done by searching online for accommodations to rent for your family for a wonderful vacation getaway. You can learn about the wonderful and unusual architecture, ancient ruins, culture, and history in a place surrounded by the ocean, delightful restaurants, and great shopping.
Islands
Greece is made up of anywhere between 1,200 and 6,000 islands, but only approximately 200 of those are inhabited. The largest island is Crete, followed by Euboea, Lesbos, and Rhodes. They are grouped by location, and these groups include the Argo-Saronic Islands, the Cyclades, the Dodecanese, the North Aegean Islands, the Sporades, and the Ionian Islands in addition to many different islets, rocks, and tiny islands along the coast of Crete. You can find Greek Island vacation rentals to suit your family’s needs for your next vacation on any of these beautiful islands. The many different Greek Island rentals can allow you to enjoy the beauty of the Greek Islands while resting and relaxing in the exotic island atmosphere.
Things to Do
While staying in local villa rentals, Greek Islands visitors should be sure to go to the Aquaworld Aquarium in Crete to see the sea animals and reptiles of the region, including lizards, snakes, and tortoises from around the region. Arion Stables is also located in Crete and is a place where you can ride horses along the beach and through the mountains and even enjoy the beautiful sunset during a leisurely ride. There is also a horse-and-carriage service that can take you on a tour around the island to visit some of the most interesting places. When staying at one of the Greek Island rentals on the island of Rhodes, be sure to see the ancient city of Rhodes. This walled city is a wonderful place to walk around and see the history and culture of times past. It is fun to also take a break in one of the many restaurants and souvenir shops along the way. The Archeological Museum of Rhodes is a great place to visit and see ancient archeology, architecture, and antiques from ancient times. It also includes a guided tour for those who want to understand more about local history while staying at a Greek Island villa rental.
Dining
There are many wonderful places to dine while staying at one of the Greek Island vacation rentals. Captain Pipinos is located on Agios Georgios and is a wonderful tavern on the edge of the ocean. They offer a shrimp saganaki that is unlike any other. While staying in one of the Greek Islands vacation rentals in Crete, be sure to stop by The Cellar Tavern in Kissamos. This restaurant is visited mostly by locals and sits right at the western tip of the island. You can find the best moussaka in the country while you take in the breathtaking views of the sea. Even if someone in your party has a different diet, you can still eat in and around the Greek Islands.
Climate
The weather is an important thing to consider when you start to plan your stay in vacation rentals. Greek Islands visitors will experience a typical Mediterranean climate. The summers are dry and hot, with temperatures possibly hitting 100 degrees Fahrenheit. There is a strong wind in July and August that comes in from the north and hits the eastern coast of some of the islands. It can reduce humidity and make the air more comfortable but definitely make the waters a bit rough. Winters are usually milder but can sometimes see more rainfall. From October through February, the weather is usually cold and wet, although it is not unusual to see a clear and sunny winter day.
When to Visit
When planning your stay in Greek Islands vacation rentals, keep in mind that spring and fall are the better times to visit. May and June as well as September and October will allow you the best possible weather for your vacation. Usually, the islands are not ready to accommodate tourists during the winter months, as some smaller islands close down and natives locate to other areas of Greece. Many seasonal restaurants and stores are closed during the winter as well, so ferry services and buses are either nonexistent or drastically reduced.
