Feature

Greece : Crete, Mediterranean balcony


At the far ends of Europe, facing the East, floats Crete, one of the 13 islands of Greece. The island is wild, mountainous and its landscape is uninviting, bristling with rocky peaks, parched by the sun and swept by winds from Africa. Island of the Gods, mythical, dotted with Greek Orthodox monasteries and white chapels. Crete, First and foremost Crete is to be discovered during walks through the scrubland of small forgotten valleys, in the mountain villages where one can meet wise old men with long mustaches quietly sipping raki. Further away, you can glimpse solitary pebble or sandy beaches lapped by turquoise waters. Crete is a majestic balcony looking over the Mediterranean Sea; the island never grows tired of seducing the visitor.
