Family Holiday Guide To Crete, Greece

White-washed houses, sandy beaches, crystal clear blue seas and a slow pace of life make Greece the perfect summer holiday destination for families.

In Crete we have avoided the very commercialised resorts and offer those with smaller fishing towns nearby such as Elounda or Aghios Nicolaos which are family friendly and have lively village squares opening onto their harbour. Explore the small narrow streets and enjoy local restaurants and cafes with views across to the Island of Spinalonga, the former leper colony famed in the book Small Island.

The hotels offer excellent children’s facilities and luxury for mum and dad with a range of spa treatments, tennis and golf as well as excellent restaurants.  Land and sea-based activities such as hiking, mountain biking, swimming and snorkeling ensure that the family can spend some time together.  The Greeks love children and welcome parents and their children almost anywhere.

Crete is particularly known for its Minoan history and the palace at Knossos is one of the major sites on the island.
