Amazing step into the ancient site of Minoan civilization Loved seeing some of the restored art and the scale of the site was amazing.

Our children aged 9 and 11 were enthralled and the views from the property were stunning.
After a bit of disappointment to visit Knossos, a 4000 year old site partly rebuilt with concrete, we were delighted to finish the day with this exquisite discovery.

The mill has one of the most striking views of inland Crete, with picturesque olive groves leading up to dramatic cliffs through which the sea is visible on clear days.
Completely impresssed by a wonderful view from the balcony of the plant, interesting facts of the excursion and unusual taste of olive oil with orange and limon.

A quaint active monastery tucked high in the mountains of Crete, Arkadi provides a respite from the crowded cities where you can learn about the history of this ancient site.
The monastery is an incredible place to visit and we were very impressed with the views, the (sad) history, the fascinating exhibitions and the English labels everywhere.

The gentleman who was manning the site was very informative and helpful, and we really enjoyed walking the tunnels, reading about the history and seeing all of the artifacts.
Afterwards, go to the hotel next door to the church for a long cool drink and admire the panoramic view over the sea and of Platanias from their terrace, and thank your lucky stars you are there on holiday.
