Crete is a jewel glistening in the Mediterranean Sea. It is the cradle of European civilization, lying in the southern frontier of Europe. Whether the visit is for relaxation or to explore the many well-known and countless hidden treasures of Crete, you will not be disappointed by the diversity of the landscape – the rugged mountains, the endless beaches and the turquoise seas, the many towns and villages, or the stunning countryside.
And as food is one of the top highlights during holidays, Crete is definitely the place to be. The Cretan Diet is a healthy and tasty diet with centuries-old recipes and modern creative versions. These recipes are always cooked with top quality Cretan products such as extra virgin olive oil, local cheeses and honey.
If you think you know Crete, then better think again! The adventurers can go for a roadtrip and discover the stunning gorges of Crete or choose a deep dive to explore what the Cretan life ‘under the sea’ is like.
Accessibility is also one of Crete’s strong points with plenty direct flights. The island has two airports in Heraklion and Chania from which you can easily rent a car and drive towards a touristic destination in the northern part of the island or an unexplored one in the south.
Cretan people are always eager to welcome you to their way of life, their house, feeling part of their big family.
