Crete is the largest and most southerly of the Greek Islands, situated South of the mainland. Excellent weather in Crete gives it an all year appeal for a Crete holiday package or holiday villas in Crete. Take a 4 hour flight to Heraklion or Chania Airport for a quick taste of the sun. The North coast is where most of the modern holiday resorts can be found. The East coast has been largely cultivated ; Agios Nikolaos being the most popular resort on the island. That leaves the quieter regions in the South and West, for those who shy away from crowds and those lovely holiday villas in Crete. The whole island is rich in historical remains to be discovered in between busy resorts. These include Minoan palaces, Byzantine churches and Venetian castles. Not to be missed are Knossos, Phaestos and Malia, although the beaches and good food are the most popular draw; track up the Iron Gate Gorge. If you bother to stray from the beaches for a few hours, you'll soon know why. Steeped in mythology, Crete is the setting for the battle between Theseus and the Minotaur, with Knossos the site for the labyrinth. The island combines inescapable splendour, history and beautiful beaches
