This charming Greek island is a world all of its own, combining easy-going beach luxury with dramatic interior landscapes and a history that dates back over 4,000 years.

It is the most southerly Greek Isle, which essentially, caters for every taste. Luxury Crete holidays can offer quietly relaxed experiences or a busy lively break. Explore the rocky landscape, unwind on golden shores lapped by azure waters or linger over a bottle of fine wine in a number of chic cafés.

Fabulous beaches and spectacular mountain scenery are good enough reasons to head to Crete, not forgetting the incredible history preserved at several sites around the island. While it may be tempting to spend all your time soaking up the rays on one of Crete's many glorious beaches, you must visit the 3,500-year-old remains of the Minoan palace of Knossos.

From its beautiful golden beaches, crystal clear waters, rugged snow-capped mountains and breathtaking scenery Crete is an ideal destination to relax.

But if you are looking for action you will also find countless things to do and see. Walks, climbs, drives and rides take you across striking plateaux, dramatic mountains and stunning seascapes.

And finally, shopping on Crete is an experience not to be missed.  A range of small village shops and markets sell local produce and beautifully crafted leather, copper, bronze, terracotta and wooden items.

In the larger towns, you will find the streets are lined with chic boutiques, offering the latest in clothing, shoes and beauty items.
