Your Destinations

Heraklion

Crete is a magical tapestry of splendid beaches, ancient treasures, and landscapes encompassing vibrant cities and dreamy villages, where locals share their traditions, wonderful cuisine and generous spirit. Crete is the birthplace of the Minoan people, said to be the first advanced society on European soil, who ruled over 4000 years ago. Here you can find remains of this remarkable civilisation in various archaeological sites dotted over the island, including the famous Palace of Knossos.

Rethymnon

The third largest town in Crete, Rethymnon is an intriguing mixture of old-world charm and lively Cretan life. The vivacious atmosphere of the old town is just the place for a stroll on long summer evenings. The different eras and influences on the town can be seen in the unusual architecture and buildings.  The multitude of bars, cafes, tavernas and events are guaranteed to provide entertainment to suit everyone's taste!

This city is famous for its Venetian harbour and historic architecture such as the Rimondo fountain. As a result, it is a  lovely place to get lost in for an afternoon - why not take a walk through its bougainvillaea lined cobbled streets, before trying out some of the beautiful restaurants and cafes on offer.

Agios Nikolaos

A walk around the shops is an enjoyable experience in this picturesque town. With upmarket restaurants, cafes and bars, the town has a stylish and lively feel. Don't miss the beautiful Lake Voulismeni - the legend suggests that Athena and Artemis bathed in its waters.
