The Best Hotels in Crete

Crete is the largest of the Greek islands - it takes a whole day to cross it - and also its most popular. No wonder, given the diversity of the mini-continent. There are magnificent beaches in the northeast, important cultural treasures such as the Palace of Knossos, and unspoiled nature in the mountain ranges, plateaus and gorges. In addition, there is the exuberant joie de vivre of the Cretans. What could be better than enjoying the sunset on the terrace of a hotel in Crete with a glass of retsina and the scents of Cretan cuisine?

Crete is the largest Greek island and offers sweeping and diverse landscapes from coast to hill across craggy rocks with stunning scenery. Visit the towns of Heraklion and Chania, whose ancient architecture and narrow streets take visitors back in time. There is a plethora of fascinating archeological gems to be discovered, thanks to the Byzantine, Ottoman and ancient Greek civilizations that have influenced this territory. The Mediterranean sea surrounds the temperate island, with pleasant temperatures all year round. Beach lovers and winter vacationers can delight in the charming Greek hospitality offered at luxury, design and boutique hotels in hotspots like Elounda and Agios Nikolaos. The traditional dances and music complements typical Cretan gastronomy, based on olive oil, cheese, herbs and local produce. Make a toast to an unforgettable Greek holiday in a luxurious suite with an Ouzo aperitif at sunset.
