Nature & Surroundings

What makes a holiday location so special? It’s not just the island, Crete, which has a beautiful landscape: among the mountain olive-, lemon- and orange orchards you will find old villages, monasteries and chapels. Crete, near to the African continent, provides you something else rare and priceless: the view into ancient, foreign cultures – of the Minoan, Hellenistic Greek, Roman and Byzantine civilizations. The Southern coast of Crete is still lonely and the atmosphere of the Cretans in the taverns is authentic.
