Crete Family Villas

Crete Family Villas

Since 1984 Freelance Villas has been seeking the best villas to be found in the quieter parts of western Crete.  We are delighted to offer a wide variety  of beach houses with sea views, village houses filled with character and small groups of  apartments and, to match the relatively recent and  increasing number of requests for Crete family villas,  we are now pleased to offer an exciting and ever expanding choice of Villas to meet this  demand. Our ethos has not changed since 1984.

We give the nod to only quality Villas, that we would choose for our own family holidays and have not only inspected each one, but stayed in many. They are scattered amongst the coastal villages of Western Crete, around Chania  and in the islands quietest out of the way places. Every Crete family villa is individual and has something special to offer.

Our collection includes many villas a short drive or even a walk from a beach and a taverna,  luxurious Villas with jaw-dropping views and quirky village houses where the family can really discover what Crete village life is like. Each one has been selected for its potential to provide the backdrop to a great and memorable (for all the right reasons) family holiday. 

Spending  your precious holiday time in a Crete Family Villa  is a truly relaxing experience and when searching for a family holiday you may be surprised to find that a villa with a private pool is a surprisingly affordable luxury.

Your holiday can be as laid back, cultural or action packed as you choose but however you like to spend your days,  it will run to your own rhythm and this is what a holiday in a private Crete family villa with a pool is all about. From the start of the day your time is your own – there is no rush to get down to the pool as nobody else will be putting their towels on your sunbeds.  

In all likelihood most of your holiday ‘hometime’ will revolve around your very own pool or in it or even on it – morning noon and evening. Whether you are just sitting dangling your feet in it, having fun and games in it, floating on a lilo on it, sunning yourself beside it – or even swimming in it.

Taking one of the larger Villas for a holiday is a great way to reconnect with your extended family in these days when finding time and space to get together is becoming increasingly difficult. A large extended family may even consider taking a group of Villas close together so that they can spend  the time together of their choosing, without committing the whole holiday.

If you have very young children in your family it’s a good idea to select one of the Villas with separate children’s pools – a shallow area partitioned off from the main pool for little ones to play safely. Of course small children should  never be left unsupervised near water but on holiday small children need a watchful eye whatever they are up to . 

There are those who really feel prefer the beach and for whom they feel a pool would be wasted. We also offer Crete Family Villas within easy walking distance of beautiful beaches, there are many tavernas which have pools attached which provide the perfect solution for the occasional pool experience. 

Having your own family space where you can all totally relax is a great foundation  on which to create your own personal time together and Crete has so much to offer, particularly for those with a cultural appetite, with a history reaching back to Pre-Minoan times.
