Unlike some of the better-known areas of Crete, the area of south Cretan coast around Matala fiercely protects its small village feel. It’s full of hidden beaches offering a varied mix of white sands and shaded outcrops. To best soak up Crete’s southern sun and azure waters, we can arrange a private boat trip around its hidden coves.
The wonderful scenic landscapes of these traditional villages make a delightfully atmospheric backdrop to the seascapes that can be enjoyed from the terrace of your luxury villa. Allow us to arrange an exclusive spa treatment on your private grounds, where you can enjoy a sumptuous massage and splendid sea views all from the comfort of familiar surrounds.
The mountains of this area make it a hot spot for hikers. The towering cliffs offer a striking contrast to the placid water lapping gently at the beautiful beaches below. Picnicking on a nearby peak is a fine way to enjoy panoramic vistas across the shimmering coastline.
Welcoming locals add further character to this charming region. Here cosy restaurants, live traditional music and sunshine combine to produce an idyllic Cretan escape.
