Crete is not only the largest island of Greece, it is also one of the most interesting places of visit. No other island offers as many locations to explore as Crete: Kournas Lake, the enchanting gorge of Richtis, Komos Beach, the Arkadi Monastery…
Here, everyone will find something to satisfy their needs. If you dream of lazing in the sun, then there are numerous beaches that provide a wonderful opportunity to do just that. In case you prefer to spend your time exploring ancient monuments and buildings, there are plenty of them on the island to keep you occupied for the whole time of your visit.
There are different accommodation options on Crete: hotels, cottages, villas, houses and apartments for every taste and purse.
It is so easy to forget all your troubles and worries here, far from noisy metropolitan cities and day-to-day routine. Open your heart to the beauty and hospitality of the island—and your trust will be repaid with the best the island has to offer. Take a walk down the narrow, winding streets and delve into the world of restaurants with exquisite cuisine. Each dish is served with a glass of traditional Cretan wine of tsikoudia. Tsikoudia (also known as raki) is a grape-based spirit, made from the distillation of pomace, i.e., the pieces of grapes (including the stems and seeds) that were pressed for the winemaking process. The delicious taste of traditional Cretan salads with olive oil dressing will definitely leave you begging for more. And freshly-brewed Cretan coffee tastes like ambrosia itself.
Such a shame you can’t take a piece of the beautiful island back home with you! But don’t be sad, there is always an opportunity to take pictures of the surrounding beauty. You may take them by yourself or hire a professional photographer who will bring your dreams to life in the best possible way.
