Incredible Crete - by the Region of Crete

Incredible Crete has a wonderful collection of information about Crete, with beautiful videos, images, and sections on nature, history, beaches, travel planning, gastronomy, agrotourism and religious tourism. The extensive listing of hotels, villas, cottages and rooms for rent will delight the visitor. Presented by the Region of Crete, it also covers alternative travel. We love the icons based on Minoan script and the refreshing campaign 'Crete - Surprisingly Yours'. The videos have a great sense of humour and really hit the atmosphere of the island.





Greek Mountain Flora - screen shot of webpage

Greek Mountain Flora ...with a special section on the flora of Crete, written by amateur botanists Klaas Kamstra and José van Son. After extensive trips in Europe and further away, they share their knowledge of mountain plants here. This island has a unique ecology in the Mediterranean and botanists and lovers of herbs will be surprised at the variety and diversity of the moutain flora.
