We do what we love, we love to do it well, and we know you will love the result, your happiest memories.
We are just trying to make your trips better all the time.
We are locals (This is Yiannis writing the owner), love our island and know it quite well (20 years expert destination knowledge), glad to help you to discover lovely Crete!
We are different. We do our own research. We write our own words. And we form our own opinions.
We seek out independent small hotels, B&Bs, inns, self-catering places, villas, and the most exciting activities in Crete that are run with passion, love, and creativity.
We inspect and select, we are proud of our collection, since all these places crafted by people with a passion for hospitality. Every single small hotel, inn and self-catering place is visited and revisited by us to make sure it has the creativity and warmth to give you a memorable stay. In addition, we reject over 50% of places that would like to cooperate with us and we are sure you’ll love the ones we’ve accepted.
Our descriptions are honest, trustworthy and based on our personal experience of each unique place to stay.
We love and support difference, not standardization, supporting small local businesses and other passionate people who are targeting sustainable tourism, the "other tourism", the "Crete You Are Looking For".
We seek worth, not price, and finds value in individuality, character, genuine hospitality, and care.
Therefore the places we take you can be deliciously simple or ruinously expensive. We thrive on variety.
In addition, we still look for authenticity, warmth, gracious hospitality, and character, places that embody the slow life and where hours of love have been poured into the tiniest detail to create those simple, personal joys that make a place, house, hotel, villa truly special.
These handpicked collections are some of our favorites, curated by us to inspire your next journey.
We offer free travel advice, tailored to your individual needs. No chatbots. No algorithms. Just super-friendly local people with a passion and love for travel.
Booking with us you support the local economy, this allows more money to stay inside of local communities and in the hands of people who live in the destinations you visit.
