Though many islands are central to the chains and archipelagos that make up Greece's essence, Crete and Rhodes have a place all their own in the country's travel landscape.
Crete has an enormous coastline made up of bays, inlets and coves interwoven with the Mediterranean Sea that attract beach-goers from Europe and beyond. Still, there's plenty to offer those ready to put their swim trunks aside. Visit the ruins and Knossos, Phaistos and Gortys for all the mystery and intrigue of the ancient Minoan civilization that predates Christ by 7000 years.
The spearhead-shaped island of Rhodes is known for the Colossus of Rhodes, though it no longer stands. Still, it has history in the form of the Acropolises of Rhodes and Lindos and the Temple of Apollo, as well as plentiful natural wonders to offer. The island's interior is mountainous and thick with woods, fit for exploration by hikers and the adventure-minded, while there are also small villages and sandy resort areas for those who want more of a beach holiday.
When you're exhausted from your travels, collapse into any of the resort condos or apartments we offer, to recharge until it's time to depart again.
