Save money on Autumn sun in Crete

3 September 2009

Villa specialist Freelance Holidays is highlighting September and October stays on the island of Crete, when the sun still shines for up to nine hours a day, the average temperature is a comfortable 20°C, and the sea is equally warm.

This is the time for friends travelling together or extended families to take advantage of low-season deals.

For example, white-washed Villa Eleni is tucked away down a rural track only five minutes’ walk from the traditional village of Douliana. The infinity pool offers stunning views down the valley to the coast ten minutes’ drive away. With two stylish bedrooms and two bathrooms the villa can sleep four but with the weeks starting 13, 20 and 27 October discounted by £190, a couple can enjoy privacy, space and style for just £495, down from £685.

Alternatively, Pericles Beach Villa has three comfortable bedrooms: a master en-suite for Mum and Dad; a twin with its own shower for the kids and a ground-floor double with adjoining bathroom for Grandparents. The villa is idyllically-set overlooking the sea a few yards away, but it also has its own swimming pool plus a small pool for children. A week’s rental starting 29 September, 13, 20 or 27 October now costs just £650 – a saving of £115 on the original price.

Flights are not included in the prices: a host of charters and low-cost airlines fly to Crete until the end of October and Freelance Holidays can arrange car hire.
