Crete, a world class destination

Crete has been widely accepted for decades not just as one of the top Greek islands but also as a world class travel destination. There are many reasons to support this claim.

Although Crete has made several steps towards modernism, it has still largely retained its authenticity on various levels. It is life itself that remains unchanged for many Cretans, especially for those who live further away from the four main cities of Crete. Their food comes directly from their land and tastes as good as it did decades ago. Their customs still hold a very important role in their lives.

There are quite a few traditional villages in Crete that have either retained their old style or have been rebuilt anew to look exactly like they used to 50 or so years ago. In fact, they have done such a good job that it seems you are stepping into an old movie. And don’t think even for a moment that these walls hide something uninteresting. On the contrary, it is more like a sense of time travel. The feeling of romance and respect to tradition will definitely overwhelm you.

Undeniably, Crete is one of the most beautiful destinations for summer holidays. It has it all. Fantastic beaches, breathtaking mountains, exquisite climate, beautiful people, amazing food and high-end accommodation to satisfy even the most demanding visitor. In Crete you will find from simple hotels to luxury resorts and traditional villas, ideal for families mostly. Whether you desire standard accommodation or you just want to lay yourself in the lap of luxury, the island of Crete will not let you down. With the summer of 2017 approaching fast, it is about time you start considering your next holiday. After all, holidays in Crete start as early as April. Why not for you too?
