With over six thousand Greek islands in the Aegean and Ionian Seas you could spend a lifetime exploring all they have to offer. And with so many isolated and peaceful hideaways available, from Rhodes to Santorini, it can be difficult choosing which ones to visit. But when you are staying on a Greek Island, why not sleep at a holiday rental? With more privacy than a hotel and heaps of charm and character, there are rental villas to please every type of visitor. Here's some of the best cheap Greek villas available this summer.
Owners Direct have a wide range of Greek villas to rent, and their Santorini villa in Perivolos is a superb option at the budget end of the market. The villa sits right next to Perissa beach and comes with 2 large bedrooms as well as a full sized kitchen and living space. Decorated in a classic Greek style with pastel blues, the villa costs from £62 a night for four people with a minimum stay of 5 nights.
The often overlooked island of Chios is a quiet retreat that offers some amazing villa rentals. The website Holiday Rentals can fix you up with a 2 bedroomed stone built villa high up in the hills of Chios for only £62 per night. The St. George Sykoussis villa has a rustic feel, with exposed stone walls, arched roofs and artisanal wooden furniture. However the villa also benefits from state of the art technology such as comprehensive air conditioning, satellite television, a Samsung DVD player and on-site laptop and internet. On top of this, guests can also rent bikes and mopeds to further explore the island.
Finally, the Villa Away website offers a sumptuous seaside villa on the island of Igoumenitsa just off the west coast of the Greek mainland. The villa boasts a large garden and sheltered terrace overlooking a small fishing harbour, and comes with air conditioning as standard. This villa has 3 bedrooms and costs from £300 per week.
So there are plenty of cheap Greek villas available in the islands of Greece this summer. But remember to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
