Is Crete the right destination for you?

Situated off the coast of Greece and only a few hours by plane from the UK, the island of Crete is a heavenly and mythical destination, ideal for those looking for a different setting; one where cultures meet and the magnificent alternates with the wild.

Situated off the coast of Greece and only a few hours by plane from the UK, the island of Crete is a heavenly and mythical destination, ideal for those looking for a different setting; one where cultures meet and the magnificent alternates with the wild. To experience a holiday in Crete is to plunge into thousands of years of history, where the ancient gods rub shoulders with legendary civilisation, as witnessed by the ruins of Knossos not far from the splendid city of Heraklion, the ramparts of Rethymon and the incredible fortress of Frangokastello. However, Crete is more than vestiges of history; it is also a paradise where nature-lovers will be transported to Heaven, with the gorges of Samaria, the isle of Elafonissi and the plateau of Lassithi. To holiday in Crete is to also enjoy a hospitable and warm people, the discovery of little neighbouring villages where life is lived in time with the seasons and in line with the sun. You will adore strolling through Agios Nikolaos, Loutro and Matala, or discovering the less touristic regions such as the Messara plain. See more
