Crete - The Stone Ship

Zorba's Island

Who can forget Anthony Quinn dancing on the beach in Zorba the Greek, the movie from 1964? Crete is, after all, a small universe filled with beauties and great treasures that you will probably need a lifetime to uncover!

Crete is the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean and the largest of the islands forming part of modern Greece. It is a real feast for the senses or in other words a tapestry of splendid beaches, ancient treasures, and landscapes encompassing vibrant cities and dreamy villages, where locals share their traditions, cuisine and generous spirit.

“The mystery of Crete runs deep. Whoever sets foot on this island senses a mysterious force coursing warmly and beneficently through their veins, sensing their soul beginning to grow” wrote Nikos Kazantzakis, Crete’s most celebrated author, in Report to Greco. On the south side of the Aegean is an island that is mystical, warm and welcoming, pure and generous.
