Your Holiday

Your Destination

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.

There’s something undeniably artistic in the way the Cretan landscape unfolds, from the sun-drenched beaches in the north to the rugged canyons spilling out at the cove-carved and cliff-lined southern coast. Leave time to plant your footprints on a sandy beach, and boat, kayak or snorkel in the crystalline waters.

If you’re a foodie, you will be in heaven in Crete, where ‘locavore’ is not a trend but a way of life. Rural tavernas often produce their own meat, cheese, olive oil, raki and wine, and catch their own seafood. Follow a gourmet trail across the landscape and you’ll delight in distinctive herbs and greens gathered from each hillside, cheeses made fresh with unique village or household-specific recipes, and honey flavoured by mountain herbs. The Cretan diet is among the healthiest in the world. Pair your meal with excellent local wine, and cap it off with a fiery shot of raki.

Creta Maris Beach Resort 5*

Creta Maris Beach Resort with a capacity of 680 rooms, was originally launched in 1975 and is situated next to Hersonissos, just 25 minutes (24km) from the Heraklion Airport. Enjoy a blend of tradition and luxury on a beautiful beach with crystal clear waters where guests can experience authentic Cretan hospitality. Creta Maris, a small village with quaint twisting paths, small piazzas filled with the scents and colours, is a unique combination of Aegean Architecture, Cretan hospitality and green-oriented environment.

At Creta Maris, the choices for fun, entertainment, sports activities, but also relaxation, exercising, and beauty are endless! Teens can enjoy sports’ activities, animation program and a Teenagers’ Club (12-15 years old) available from July to August.  Children can enjoy water slides, mini club, playground, disco, tennis lessons (on extra charge), all under the supervision of professional animation team who will keep the children happily occupied.

Excursion to Discover Crete

Your Optional Excursions
Created exclusively  for Voyage Privé guests, this tour will take you through utter paradise! Experience the tranquility, 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.
