The biggest and, naturally, the most diverse of the Greek Islands, Crete is a great destination for families and we have excellent resorts at your disposal. Take your little adventurers to discover historical sites of wonder, extend their palette at one of the traditional Greek restaurants, or simply stroll along the thousand kilometre coastline and explore its golden beaches and coves. Our family accommodation option at Daios Cove Luxury Resort and Villas is able to house up to five children in certain rooms, as well as offering extra dining facilities and a babysitting service. Because Crete is only a short flight from the UK, this may be an excellent choice for families with impatient young ones. Is this your ideal family holiday? Get in touch to find out more.
