Crete Holidays


Home to one of the earliest civilisations in Europe, Crete’s mesmeric landscapes, beautiful beaches and dreamy villages have stood for over 4000 years. Now a fantastic mix of vibrant towns, traditional tavernas and luxurious hospitality, the island offers a wealth of ancient treasures and wonderful holiday resorts. Crystal clear waters lap the sandy shores of the island’s stunning coastline, from family friendly Elounda to the historic streets of Chania. On the largest of all the Greek islands, the magical landscape and spirited culture offer a marvellous destination for all.
