A bit about the venue

The Greek Island of Crete

Crete is the largest of all the Greek Islands and is made up of breathtaking rocky canyons, mountains, springs , olive groves, huge vineyards and rich vegetation. The uniqueness of the island is the wonderful combination it offers to its visitors: rich archeological sites, vibrant and romantic cities, alongside unique and impressive natural phenomena.

As in all of Greece, you will discover authentic villages, friendly, welcoming locals who live their daily life in charming Greek modesty. Throughout Crete you will also find important ancient archeological sites, that teach us about the fascinating history of the Island.

Although many of the travelers to Crete come here for a vacation and a lazy beach holiday, it is worth discovering that there is far beyond that. Greece and its Islands are the ideal destination for those looking for the combination – a great base from which to venture on days out hiking, touring, drinking in the rich history and culture combined with endless stretches of idyllic beaches.

Crete, like Andros Island and the Pelion Peninsula, tops the list of destinations for white sandy beaches, and clear azure stretches of water, star tours, spectacular views, beautiful hiking trails, picturesque villages and historical sites… What more could you need?
