Capture the magic of Crete
Book a flight from the UK to Crete and lose yourself on this stunning Greek island.
In Crete, time seems to stand still. Renowned for its natural beauty, Crete boasts spectacular mountain ranges, palm forests and velvety beaches. Its diverse history can be seen across the island from Minoan temples, Venetian fortresses and Byzantine monasteries.
The hospitality of the Cretans is famous and you’d be hard pushed to find a warmer welcome. They value their culture and traditions, particularly their music. If you take a drive into the mountains you will still find shepherds tending their flocks near traditional mountain villages.
Food in Crete is divine. Diet busting breakfasts of custard and cinnamon tarts are heavenly. Local food is fresh, delicious and plentiful. There are a few little places to shop for handicrafts and local markets for olive oil, cheeses and breads.
Crete truly belongs to its people. We're just lucky they’re happy to share it…
