The Island Of Contrasts
“The mystery of Crete runs deep. Whoever sets foot on this island senses a mysterious force coursing warmly and beneficently through their veins, sensing their soul beginning to grow”
Crete is the beating heart of the Mediterranean and is not only one of the most popular island in Greece, but also a worldwide known destination!
Crete is the birthplace of the Minoan civilization – the earliest recorded in Europe.
The famous Cretan Diet is the highlight of Mediterranean Gastronomy and the hospitality of the locals is their trademark.
Virgin landscapes, archaeological treasures, quiet mountainous villages, seductive cities, sandy beaches awarded for their beauty and crystal clear waters make the island an all-year-round destination.
