Discover the island of Crete independently, without worrying about the organization : As a couple, a family or friends, fix your arrival and departure dates and let us coordinate your stay and adapt the organization to your needs.
how does it work ?
First and foremost, talk US about YOU :
what you like and do not want, your tastes, your desires, your family constraints, your pace, your passions, the purpose of your stay ...
- By consulting the airlines (Aegean Airlines, Transavia, Easy Jet, Ryanair, Jet Airlines ...) serving the airports of Chania (Xania) and HERAKLION, you choose your date of arrival in Crete,
Your stay can last 7,8,9,10 .... 17 .... 21 days ..., we'll adapt our organization to your dates and not the opposite,
- Before taking your ticket, you inform us of your potential dates,
- We consult our local partners (hotels, guest houses, apartments, houses for rent ...), we make you a geographic proposal (one or more regions depending on the length of your stay and / or your wishes for visits and activities) and you submit a quote (response within 48 hours, 72 hours for groups),
- You pay a deposit to the reservation, to block your accommodation and activities to the limited number of participants, (the amount of the deposit will depend on the chosen formula (discovery or comfort) and the proximity of your arrival date) .
We strongly advise you to take out travel insurance with our partner ALLIANZ TRAVEL.
You pay on arrival, directly :
- the car rental company upon arrival at the airport,
- local agencies for activities (hiking guides, museum guides ...)
- local taverns for the discovery formula,
- artisans, traders, service providers (courses cooking, pottery class, botany class ...)
We 'll be here, at the airport or the port to welcome and assist you in the formalities of renting your vehicle, WHATEVER THE HOUR.
We present you your discovery book, give you your vouchers for a drink and answer your questions.
Of course, we are your privileged interlocutor during your entire stay. The language barrier will no longer be a brake !
- If you are 2 or 3 adults, your vehicle will be category B : (type Ford Fiesta),
- If you are 4, a category C (type Hyundai Accent, Ford Focus),
- If you are more numerous, we will adjust the vehicles (Fiat Scudo 7 or 9 seats, Citroen Picasso, ...).
Your discovery book will contain the contact details of all of these contacts. If you have not done it upstream, you can book your activities by calling our partners directly. Our role is to select these activities, to make sure they work well, and to make the local population work. Rates are indicated in your documents.
For the year 2019, We have selected 15 partners for accommodation (we only work with family structures, on a human scale) and 14 partners for the catering sector (cooks with mothers in threads) and passionate about the secrets of the Mediterranean diet of their ancestors).
We chose the best taverns on the island, according to specific criteria : professionalism of the owners, geographical location, quality of the welcome, authenticity, freshness and diversity of dishes.
Our selection of accommodation and restaurants is questioned every year, and sometimes even during the year. We are not attached to an establishment but to the QUALITY of the service rendered.
We have not asked for any discounts or entitlements on the cost of your accommodations, which gives us the right to stay demanding and keep a critical mind. We are also totally at your disposal if you want to send us your suggestions.
Do not expect from us negotiated rates such as large groups and big tour operators. Our stays are quality stays. Nothing is bought at a discount, nothing is sold at a discount.
We choose for you the best accommodations, the best restaurants, the most authentic services. Quality at a cost. We want to stay positioned in this niche.
Our goal : the DIRECT meeting with the Cretan people, the discovery of their customs and sharing
