Crete! The birthplace of Zeus the father of all gods, the island that has been central to films, books and TV series and the place where civilisation was born when the Minoans built stunning palaces with running water and flushing toilets!
Whether you’re a culture vulture, a twitcher, a rambler or a disco queen you will always find something which will make a good holiday into a great one!
The mild climate in the spring and autumn make it the perfect destination for those who want to go exploring the remote mountain villages and the unspoilt south coast revealing the rugged beauty many never see. The Lybian Sea on the south coast is always a few degrees warmer and the tavernas will prepare dishes which though simple in their ingredients are eaten only in that area.
The hot summer months may make getting around an exertion too tiring! But so many great things are right on your doorstep so just once get up and out early before the temperature soars and revel in a Crete experience!
