Why Greek Mountain Villagers Have Healthy Hearts?

Scientists have pinpointed one reason why people living in isolated villages in Greece may enjoy long and healthy lives.

They found a new genetic variant, common among villagers, which appears to protect the heart by lowering levels of "bad" fats and cholesterol.

Despite a diet rich in animal fat, the people of Mylopotamos in northern Crete do not suffer from cardiovascular disease.

And they really love their cheese.

What's special about these Greek villages?

The isolated...

Yet, that is what many travelers experience with airport transfers and the cost of their services.

Knossos, the Capital of Minoan Civilization Still Has More Treasures to Reveal

The newest discoveries on Crete at the site of the ancient city of Knossos suggest that the capital of the Minoan Civilization was much more influential and larger than previously thought.

Archeologists already knew that Knossos was Europe’s oldest city and ruled over the massive trade empire during the Bronze age, however, new evidence suggests that the Minoans may have actually survived into the Iron Age.

Previously thought to have perished around 1200 B.C. after the volcanic...

Milia Is Truly Magnificent

Milia is truly magnificent.

Tens of thousands of hours have gone into this so far. I spent the day walking around, decoding the landscape and it is a wonder.

All the trees! They look like they just happened, but hundreds and hundreds of them were deliberate and are being actively loved. And the grafting...someone has a deal of skill.

Truly a wonderful place. In a few more years, this will be a true paradise with trees groaning under their fruit.

Already the bees create the...

What The Others Say About Our Car Rental Services

Here's what our valued guests say about Crete-Car-Rental.com and our services...

Crete Car Rental worked really well for me for my 4/day trip in Crete. The rate was really reasonable and they delivered and picked up at our hotel in Chania and Heraklion which is extremely helpful. Surprisingly our car read a full size Audi although I'd only paid for a mid-size. The car was not new, but looked and drove great nonetheless. I would certainly use Crete Car Rental again.
