Crete is the largest of the Greek islands, combining the best of all things Greek with a warm and sunny Mediterranean climate. This alluring island boasts around 650 miles of coastline which form an array of beaches, and also has some wonderful rural landscapes; there are rugged mountain ranges, lush valleys, olive groves, hills filled with colourful flora, and snow-capped peaks to admire. Brightsun Travel offers great value luxury holidays to Crete from the UK, so you can visit this stunning island in style.
Crete’s natural beauty is complimented by its rich history; the island dates back over 4000 years, so there is a lot of ancient charm to be witnessed here. Crete is also steeped in culture… The locals of this island are spirited and passionate about their nation, and many time-honoured traditions are still thriving, especially when it comes to cooking. Locals prepare their Greek dishes with vegetables gathered from hillsides, cheeses made from traditional household recipes and sauces flavoured by the herbs of the Cretan mountains.
The main hub of the island is Heraklion, offering bustling beaches and an immense night scene. Rethymno is a less hectic Cretan city, renowned for its exceptional locally-made wines and old quarter. Then there’s Chania, located on Crete’s north-western coast which boasts some of Greece’s best beaches and sightseeing attractions. Lassithi is another popular Cretan city with many historic sites and picturesque harbour-side towns to explore. We have a great package holiday to Elounda town in Lassithi at the 5* Elounda Bay Palace resort.
