Irresistible Greek Island getaways

Holidays in Crete effortlessly blend modernity and tradition – for every nocturnal area there is a quaint village seemingly untouched by tourism, along with pockets of Crete that will appeal to everyone.

You’ll be hypnotised by the picturesque scenery and crystal clear waters that adorn this magical island. Take a five star break at St Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel & Villas, for a slice of boutique luxury. If you’re feeling adventurous, explore the traditional inland villages or the dramatic Samaria Gorge. The sights of the island are truly spectacular, from the ancient city of Knossos to the Venetian harbour of Chania. As the sun goes down, the focus turns to the island’s entertainment and nightlife: day-into-night clubs in Hersonissos, hangouts in the old town of Rethymnon and harbour-side tavernas serving the freshest catch.
