What springs to mind when you think about holidays in Greece? Probably something along the lines of sea, sand and sun; boogie nights and endless fun; ancient monuments, folks and legends; striking landscapes; olive oil, ouzo, feta cheese and warm, joyful people. A place of mythical ancestry, heroic history, dazzling contradictions and alluring beauty, Crete, the southernmost island of Europe, and largest one in Greece, best encapsulates all that this country has to offer: More than 300 days of sunshine every year; coupled with dazzling, exotic beaches with waters as crystal clear and as transparent as they were when the Olympic Gods used to roam the earth. 1.100 km of coastline and a snow capped mountain range with 57 peaks more than 2.000 meters high. 13 million olive trees, cypress forests, countless indigenous herbs and aromatic plants; prolific vineyards and citrus groves. But also beguiling ruins of Minoan towns and palaces -glorious testaments of Europe’s most ancient civilization- Byzantine monasteries and 14th century rural chapels adorned in intricate frescoes; Venetian towns, sleepy pastoral communities and quaint coastal villages. Abundant water sports; but also rock climbing and hiking opportunities for the adventurers and the sporty. Local feasts with traditional music in which everyone is welcomed; art and theatre; open air cinemas and star studded concerts. And that’s not to mention exquisite food and drink: the world’s greatest olive oil-aptly named Crete’s liquid gold-fresh fruit and vegetables, delicious cheeses, and the trademark, Cretan fiery raki.
In fact there are myriads of reasons for choosing to holiday-or even actually live-on this island. Just imagine one day delving into ancient legends; and the next swimming in picture perfect seas; while subsiding in nectar and ambrosia and basking in the wondrous Mediterranean light and heartfelt hospitality of the locals, at the same time.
It may even get better than this! How about adding some real opulence to the mix, by opting to reside in one of the most privileged luxury villas on Crete? Come and stay at our LRC luxury villas on Crete and let us guide you through all that is magical in the island of Zeus and Zorba.
