We’re there for you!

Crete, an ancient and storied island, lies on the southern edge of the blue Aegean Sea between Europe, Asia and Africa. Its inhabitants are gifted with a warm and generous nature, and its beauty has excited and enchanted visitors down through history. Together, we will explore the southwestern part of this magical place, Crete, where a festival for all the senses awaits us.

The island’s breathtaking beauty is born of Mediterranean sun and sere landscapes of rock, cleaved by magnificent gorges cut deep into the sides of the island, jeweled with a wealth of fascinating indigenous flora and fauna.

Warm Mediterranean hospitality embraces us. The face of an ancient culture smiles at us, beautiful and mysterious, a culture which over the millennia has drawn from the wisdom, art and histories of three continents, whose delights include a marvellous Cretan cuisine, celebrating a bounty taken from both the sea and the land, bringing health to the body and filling the soul with delight.
