Holiday house in the mountains of Crete, Greece
Memorable parts? The drive to Panokosmos, once we had left the main autoroute was exciting.

Eco hotel and villa accommodation in Crete
Memorable parts? Having enjoyed two weeks travelling around Crete, we spent the last three nights of our holiday at the villa high in the mountains, overlooking rugged countryside with views down to the sea. To find such wonderful accommodation in so rural a location was quite amazing. Our villa was a very well designed, spotlessly clean, spacious house.

Famed for its white-washed cottages set against herb-covered mountains, azure waters, and most importantly sandy beaches, few tourists to Crete realise that they may be contributing to the destruction of the very thing they’ve come to see. Little do they know that when they book their package to a beach resort, they may be supporting one of the major contributing factors to the demise of the Mediterranean Loggerhead sea turtle, which has its major nesting areas in the world on Greece’s beaches.
