The Crete region
Although Crete is well-developed for the tourist industry and has everything the modern holiday-maker could wish for, the islanders maintain much of their culture and many of their traditions. There are still villages from a quieter, more peaceful age where shepherds tend their flocks and the way of life is centuries old.
Sample some of the fabulous Cretan cuisine, prepared from fresh, locally grown produce at a local taverna washed down, of course, by a glass of the local wine. Crete is known for its ancient artefacts and has a rich and varied history spanning many civilisations and it is believed that Crete is the birthplace of the Greek god, Zeus.
For the more active holidaymaker there is a range of activities and water sports on offer. Visit one of Crete’s water parks for a day of family fun; learn to water-ski, scuba dive or go snorkelling amongst the wide range of marine species that live along the coastline.
For those preferring to spend their days on dry land there is fishing or horse-riding, golf, mountain climbing and abseiling into one of the spectacular gorges that slice the landscape or, of course, simply relaxing with a good book on one of the many sandy beaches.
The Rethymno / Sfakaki area
Nestled amongst olive groves, the village of Sfakaki is ideally located only 500m from the glorious, sandy Alkionis Beach and enjoys all the amenities of smaller, quieter, Cretan beach resort. There is a four star hotel only 300m from the villa where guests can enjoy a 30% discount on all food and drinks. Also nearby is a selection of family tavernas and shops and the nearest supermarket is only 500m away.
The surrounding countryside is ideal for those wishing to get away from it all and explore the “real” Crete, and there are architectural treasures such as the Sfakaki Monastery to explore nearby. The nightlife and shopping of the Venetian port town of Rethymno is only 12km away and can be reached on the local bus service.
