The island of Crete is blessed with a 1,000km coastline of pristine beaches and is lapped by the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea to the South of Mainland Greece. Steeped in a long history and intricate culture the island also enjoys a favourable annual climate that keeps drawing its many visitors back.

A top selection of leisure facilities feature here from an indoor and outdoor swimming pool to a children's pool too so there's somewhere for everyone to cool down and relax within. Also for the kids is a playground so they can tear around and let loose in the safety of the resort whilst you enjoy a relaxing treatment at the spa.

Explore the Renaissance town of Rethymnon which still flaunts the beautiful architecture of the Venetian conquest of 1204 and the harbour is a must-see too! The Sacred Monastery of Arkadi gives an insight into the islands long history and still bears the scars from a Battle with the Turkish back in the mid-1800's. A visit to the Venetian Castle of Fortezza gives more than just panoramic views across the island from East-to-West as it helps you delve into the deep history of the island from an elevated position above the town of Rethymnon.
