We Love Crete - Travel in the Greek Islands

This page may contain affiliate links, see our disclaimer here.


Yiasas, We are Apostoli and Anastasi and We Love Crete!

Here on this blog, new pages, photos and articles are added to our site, new pages about the Greek Island of Crete and travel in Greece and the Greek islands. New pages are added on villages and mountains and gorges, music, walking and hiking and history.

We add stories and comments from our readers and plenty for you as an independent traveller to Crete...or for you if you are living in Crete and for you if you are thinking of moving to Crete...

All about Crete in the Greek islands; Cretan beaches, photos and maps of Crete, beach accommodation suggestions and plenty about the Crete diet, itineraries in Crete, experiences in Crete, the Greek islands and more...

This is not a personal blog, because our whole website is our personal 'love letter' to Crete and is written for you, our fellow lover of Crete, to discover her for yourself...

We won't tell you what to do and where to go, how to feel or give you the '10 best' of anything. We share our love for Crete and let you make up your own mind, plan your own trip and experience your own journey, on your own path. We Love Crete is a No Selfie Zone

...and you won't find any selfies here. It is a no selfie zone! Phew!

We would love to hear your questions about travelling in Crete, or your stories about living and travelling in Crete, please write to us here: Contact Us

Crete - True Hospitality Found

We really cannot tell you how the hospitality of Crete is. You have to experience it for yourself. In a world gone mad, where no-one talks to you or looks at you anymore, it is revitalising to the soul to be treated with such respect and openness. The Cretans teach us all how to be truly wealthy.

So, although this video is humourous, it is based on truth and certainly reflects our experiences in Kriti.
