Crete

Whether you are interested in natural wonders, historical sites or an exquisite holiday destination, Crete is the place to go.

The Minoan heritage encompasses the island as witnessed through the vast range of archaeological sites and museums hosting artifacts from that period. Venetian Castles and Fortresses adorn its towns as well as on the ghostly island of Spinalonga, while historical monasteries emerge on its lush hilltops.

Herb gardens and fruit trees become the perfect setting for an excursion into the island’s lush flora and fauna. Crete’s diverse landscape offers all types of outdoor activities either caressed by the mountains’ cool air or driven by the balmy breezes of the Mediterranean. Gorges, canyons, lush or rocky slopes, majestic caves, as well as beaches of astounding beauty and infinite sea trails constitute the ideal environment for the most thrill-seeking traveler.

The benchmark of Cretan hospitality is its spectacular cuisine with authentic Mediterranean flavors infused with distinctive Cretan inspiration. Cooking classes reveal the magic behind Cretan dishes; dining is enhanced by the intimate warmth of your hosts while local spirits lure you into the psyche of genuine Cretan hospitality.
