Reviews for Walking and painting holiday in Crete


review 12 Oct 2020

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

I visited Crete in September and was warmly welcomed by Camille & Iakovos. Due to COVID, I've got a bespoke holiday as a result! :) Every day we discussed and planned our next day programme and it was as per my wishes and interest. We did walks to various locations and every place we went was different with beautiful views and surroundings. My interest as an artist was to reflect on all the new images and colors, and I have a lot of photographs I took during the walks and plan to do a series of Crete paintings. After the walks and rest, Camille and I went to sketching sessions outside and I enjoyed them as well, and we had wonderful talks about art and life. Thanks to Camille I tried egg tempera technique first time and I loved the experience.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Get your sketchbooks and walking boots ready and you will never forget the experience!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The experience is unique as you will visit places that you will not see otherwise - real rural Crete with small villages, ancient churches, olive groves and herds of goats. It is "all inclusive" but in a very organic and natural way.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Camile and Iakovos are amazing hosts, warm, friendly, attentive and supportive, and I would highly recommend their tours.
