Crete the largest of the Greek Islands is a romantic one, retaining much of its character with stunning archaeological sites and medieval harbour towns. Luxury Crete holidays can offer quiet relaxed experiences or a busy lively break. Explore the rocky landscape, unwind on golden shores lapped by azure waters or linger over a bottle of fine wine in a number of chic cafés.
Fabulous beaches and spectacular mountain scenery are good enough reasons to head to Crete, not forgetting the incredible history preserved at several sites around the island. While it may be tempting to spend all your time soaking up the rays on one of Crete's many glorious beaches, you must visit the 3,500-year-old remains of the Minoan palace of Knossos. From its beautiful golden beaches, crystal clear waters, rugged snow capped mountains and breathtaking scenery Crete is an ideal destination to relax. But if you are looking for action Crete also offers lively nightlife, bustling markets, excellent beaches and water parks.
