Your Destination

The Castello Boutique Resort & Spa 5* is a luxury hotel, situated in one of the most beautiful and sought-after locations in Crete - the traditional seaside village of Sissi in Eastern Crete. Situated only 100 metres away from the centre of Sissi village and 350 metres from the sea, this resort is the perfect destination for a luxurious getaway in the sun. Sissi village, which is situated between Malia and Milatos, offers an excellent choice for a slow-paced holiday with its pretty harbour and narrow streets filled with small shops. 

Crete, also known as 'The Great Island', is the largest of the Greek islands. Visitors to Crete will find a wealth of things to explore: a fascinating history, stunning scenery, unique flora, a rich local culture, and a lively, warm, and endlessly talkative people. The eastern side of Crete has long established itself as a firm favourite with holidaymakers and it's easy to see why. With great beaches, varied and often very cosmopolitan resorts and night life, striking landscapes, picturesque villages and a wealth of places of historical interest, it contains all that you could wish for on any holiday in Crete and more!
