Crete is the Greek island that just keeps tourist coming back year after year. If you’ve not been before then use this holiday to find out why people can’t get enough.
7 nights in Crete
I have come across this deal that is perfect for a cheeky break before the summer holidays hit.
Thanks to Thomas Cook you and your pal could be spending 7 nights in Crete with Hotel + Flights for just £126 per person.
Flights are from London Gatwick to Heraklion in April. Transfers are not included in this package but can be included for an additional £95 for the whole party, taking the total price to £174 per person. Alternatively you can check option here, but with the price high it may be worth just using Thomas Cook for an easier transfer.
The hotel is the Alexandros Hotel. The best part of this hotel is the location, just 600m from the beach you barely have to move a muscle. It’s just a short walk to the resort centre, and your nearest restaurant is practically on the doorstep. Rooms are modestly furnished but your stay will be comfortable and clean. This hotel scores 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor along with a Certificate of Excellence.
With a week in Crete I thoroughly recommend hiring a car. There’s plenty of hidden treasures on this island and the best way to explore them is on four wheels. Be sure to try and find the mystical Dikteon Cave hidden away near Psyhro, once a hiding place for the newly born Zeus this cave holds many a secret.
