New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

The ancient island of Crete is the fifth-largest in the Mediterranean, and home to a magical tapestry of splendid beaches, ancient treasures, vibrant cities and dreamy villages. Historically the home of Europe’s first advanced civilization, the Minoans, it has since been ruled by Romans, the Venetian Republic, and the Ottoman Empire, and this melting pot of cultures influences Crete’s vibrant atmosphere.

On the north shore,
Heraklion is the island’s largest city and capital, where you can see the archaeological site of Knossos and the Historical Museum of Crete. Then, venture east to see some of the island’s unspoiled gems like fishing village Agios Nikolaus. Boasting over 1000km of coastline, there are plenty of stunning beaches to enjoy - seek out Balos for its Caribbeanesque white sand and turquoise waters, or see the largest palm tree forest in Europe at Vai beach.

To escape the heat in the summer, venture inland to the
island’s dramatic mountains - hike the length of Samaria Gorge and get lost in its winding river path, or experience thrilling views from Giouchtas mountain. At the end of a long day, sample some authentic Cretan hospitality and seafood at a local restaurant - this is the perfect place for a diverse, sun-soaked holiday!

Malena Hotel 4*

If you're looking for a tranquil hotel for a sun-soaked stay on Crete, Malena Hotel 4* is the place for you. Just a short walk from stunning beaches, you can spend your days either relaxing on the sand and soaking up sea views, or back at your hotel in its outdoor swimming pool.

Excursion to Discover Crete

Your Optional Excursions
Created exclusively for Voyage Privé guests, this tour will take you through utter paradise! Experience the tranquillity, beauty and hospitality of Crete. The start of this tour will take you to a hidden-away convent, only known to locals. The path up to the monastery is surrounded by stunning nature and immaculate gardens, while the monastery itself is home to beautiful mosaics. Stop to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee made with Cretan herbs and spices, while you admire intricate architecture at the monastery.

After this spiritual visit, you will meet Katerina, a Cretan artist. She is a mother of three who followed her heart and utilised her talent to open a small workshop in a traditional house, where she lovingly restores beautiful jewellery. You'll also learn about the traditional "Komboloi" - where pearls are threaded to pass time or calm nerves. You’ll also get to make your own "Komboloi". Lastly, you will walk along a small street that leads to the picturesque "kagenion" of Katerina's mother, where you will enjoy a home-made Cretan lunch while enjoying views of Heraklion.

- Included: Transfer, driver, lunch, wine and water, Komboloi workshop.

Land Rover Safari - Tripiti

Your Optional Excursions
This excursion is the ideal way to explore the beautiful landscapes of Crete, through mountains, gorges and beautiful beaches. This safari, tested by our experts, begins by venturing towards Mount Louchtas where breathtaking views of the infinite blue of the Aegean Sea await. According to the myth, the god Zeus chose it as his last home. 

From there, you will hit the road through the verdant vineyards, where the Minoans built the oldest wine press in the world, until you reach your next stop in Charakas, a small mountain village. Here, you will mingle with locals for a coffee break at a local café. 

Following this, continue your journey off-road through hills populated with olive trees, until the next stop: the summit of the gorges of Tripiti. Admire the magnificent layers of rocks, wild meadows and the sparkling sea. Take a stop to walk in the gorge until you reach the small Panagia cave chapel which is built into the rock. 

You will then head to the beach Tripiti to enjoy a barbecue with wine and water included. Spend relaxing moments enjoying a refreshing swim in the Libyan Sea, whose crystal-clear waters are always warmer than the Aegean Sea. Then, you will take a walk along the south coast and its small authentic villages before stopping for a refreshment and a snack. This is a fantastic experience that awaits! 

Information about this excursion: 
- Departures: Saturday 
- The excursion is not recommended for children under 4 years old and is not recommended for people with back problems (off-piste trails).
