Hire a car in Crete
The biggest Greek island, Crete could be mistaken as its own country.
It basks in sunlight almost all year round and although its tourist resorts are heavily populated, you can still wander off the beaten path into its varied landscape for some solitude.
Crete’s atmosphere will stimulate your senses, with its spirited culture, and all the olive oil, herbs, honey and wine you’d ever wish for.

Step into the past
The Chestnut Festival
At the end of October in Élos and Prásses, the villages celebrate the local chestnut harvest by packing into village squares, dancing,drinking and eating the finely roasted nut.
This three-week pre-Lent celebration is held in villages throughout the island. In its final week, a series of grand street parades take place, the largest of which is held in Rethymnon.
Matala Beach Festival
Every June, this international festival is a throwback to the 1960s and 70s, when hippies famously made Matala their retreat. You can expect lots of music, art and literature from the era as well as peace loving vibes.
