The Crete region

Crete is the largest of the greek islands and is the most southerly point in Europe. It has a wonderful climate with long hot summers and short, mild (though unpredictable!) winters.

It is awash with fascinating history dating back to Minoan times. The famous Knossos Palace, said to be one of the most important archaeological sites in the world, is sited close by in Heraklion where there are several excellent museums to visit. Crete can lay claim to the birthplace of Zeus, and Fodele, (on a slightly more mortal plane!) to the birthplace of El Greco.

For a slice of more recent history, visit the old hippie colony of Matala with its beautiful beach and ancient caves where the hippies used to camp out!

There are so many places of interest here that people come back year after year

Heraklion/Iraklion

For more earthly pleasures, we have golf (a PGA course 35km away), an aquarium, two waterparks, many fabulous beaches with water sports, great tavernas with excellent food, and plenty of shopping opportunities!

For keen walkers or birdwatchers, Crete is hard to beat. --Or of course, you could just chill out!

In Fodele you will experience the truly Cretan way of life as it is still very much an agricultural village with it's olive and orange groves, sheep, goats, vines and vegetable plots (and the occasional donkey!). It is like stepping back in time but, thankfully, with modern conveniences! You will be offered oranges, locally made wine and rachi wherever you go--the locals do not like you to refuse!

As the birthplace of El Greco we have a small museum located in his house and several commemorative statues around the village.
