Crete Beach Villas
Freelance Villas offer a variety of Crete beach villas either directly set on a beach of sand, rock or shingle or within a very easy walk of a beach and the sea. In all different styles they each reflect the personal tastes of their individual owners. Even for those fortunate enough to live out their everyday life within striking distance of the coast, the occasional day trip to the seaside can only whet the appetite for spending a week or two in a beach villa with the sea almost on your doorstep. It is the endless horizons, the changing colours, the way the light is reflected in the water and the continual movement that make the sea so fascinating.
An early morning dip has to be the very best swim of the day – it is invigorating and life confirming and in the early morning it is often possible to enjoy the luxury of having the beach almost to yourself. In the evening when other holidaymakers have departed, you will be able to reclaim that sense of ‘ownership’ of the beach and, as the sun begins to go down and the stillness that often descends on the water at this hour arrives, you may be tempted to take to the water once again. When you are spending your holiday in a Crete beach villa this is the priceless indulgence that you can enjoy on a daily basis.
In the daytime, you will be sharing ‘your’ world of sand and sea with fellow holidaymakers, compromising a little your privacy but this is manifestly compensated for by the sense of ownership felt in the early morning and in the evening, when visitors leave to go home.
We offer some Crete beach villas which do not have a pool, preferable for those who delight in sea swimming, snorkelling or paddling but, for those who prefer their water a little more controlled then you may like to search our select few Crete beach villas with pools where you can truly have the best of both worlds. With your own private swimming pool to enjoy when the beach is busy or the sea too wild for swimming, you will have everything covered.
Taking a villa and spending your days accompanied by the sparkling blue sea in all its guises is unarguably very special. You will be witness to the light changing throughout a full colour spectrum over the daylight hours as the sunrises on the horizon or sets at the end of the day over the water. At nightfall and with a clear sky, the moon casts its reflection onto the water and creates a pathway of light always heading in your direction.
The soothing sound of waves toppling onto the shore is a well known aid to a good night’s sleep, more soothing than any lullaby and worthy of mention when considering a holiday at one of our Crete beach villas.
Whilst Freelance Crete beach villas are each quite individual, they are all equipped to our high standard with all the equipment you would expect of a holiday home. For those whose perfect day comes to a close only when the last ray of sun disappears over the horizon and who, even then, would choose to linger on to see the moon shining on the water, there will be a barbecue area which will probably be put to good use. There will be occasions when a meal out and a plate of great Cretan food will appeal and you will be pleased to find that your Crete beach villa will be within walking distance, or a very short drive, of a taverna.
