Articles for We Love Crete


Write For Us at We Love Crete - get the low down here. The skinny. The scoop. The gist. The nitty gritty. The bottom line. The nuts and bolts.

Our Readers. We have four different types of readers at We Love Crete:

  • Independent travellers to Crete and the Greek Islands
  • Local Cretan people and others living in Crete
  • Those looking to relocate to Crete
  • Greeks in the diaspora

Small is Beautiful. At We Love Crete we tend to support small businesses, small hotels and authentic, real Cretan experiences. We choose stuff for the character, not for the mini bar. Get the idea?

Fit Our Style. Read our website, browse around, ensure your style fits our style. We want to make sure that it makes sense for your blog or website to be linked to ours, does your site fit with our approach?

Feelings vs. Facts. We are not Lonely Planet and we don’t get bogged down in details, we figure that the guide books do that much better than we do, and travellers are adults who can find that information in a few clicks. What we do is different, we give the feel of the place, we focus on the experience of being there. (We love Lonely Planet, by the way).

It is fine to share your personal experience and your opinion of a place. Travel is subjective, after all.

Travellers. Our readers are not tourists, they are not interested in package holidays and run-of-the-mill places. They want to find the wide open spaces, to find nature, discover the real Crete, make an authentic connection to the people and explore the unique culture.

Slow Down. Our website is not about the quickest way, our travel philosophy is less is more; experiencing without rushing.

Environmental Awareness. We do not cover activities that are harmful to the environment, such as off-road 4WD rambling, motocross off road, wildlife hunting or dune destruction. We cover conservation activities and true eco-travel experiences. If in doubt, check with us about the activity you want to write about.

Show Don’t Tell. We are not big on telling our travellers where to go and what to do. We hate to be told what to do, don’t you? Remember travel is subjective, yeah? Everyone has a different take on their dream mode of travel. Give suggestions and ideas, don’t ram it down their throats.

No ‘Bestest or Fastest or Must Do or Top 10’s. Same deal, this is not a shopping mall. We don’t take such an approach to travel, which is competitive. We like to think that our readers are intelligent, independent travellers who will make up their own minds and plan their own extraordinary journey. Or not.

Truth with Positivity. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it.  This is a place to get people excited about visiting Crete. Focus on the good stuff, keep it real and truthful. It’s all about perspective.

Real People - Real Value. If you have a business, event or an activity in Crete that you want people to know about, we would love to hear from you. If your story is real and it adds real value for our readers, it sounds like a good fit for our site. Get the gist?


Small is good for guesthouses, B&Bs, boutique hotels and pensions in Crete
