Crete. As well as the magnificent beaches and warm seas, the size and physical variety of the island of Crete invites exploration, and Villa Elia, located at Maroulas, Rethymno Region, 74100, Greece, is the ideal staring point. Uniquely among Greek islands, Cretes mountainous spine creates a sense of spaciousness, a life distinct from sea and sand. Fly-drive holidays to Crete – or simply the hire of a car for some days during your stay in Villa Elia, will enable you to seek out the rugged formations of the interior, the fertile countryside and tiny chapels filled with frescoes, the mountain villages where time has stood still. Always, the authentic spirit of the islanders, their fierce independence and pride as well as the best cooking and most delicious meals that constitute the famed Cretan Diet will more likely be found where few others are looking. With so much to see, with dolphins to watch, shaded squares to paint, olive trees and wild orchids, Minoan remains and sweeping beaches, no wonder Crete holidays and Villa Elia are revisited so often.
