April is one of the best times of year to visit Crete. Temperatures are nudging the 20's, wild flowers are beginning to blossom across the island's landscapes, resorts are coming to life after their winter break, and everyone is gearing up for Easter - one of the biggest celebrations of the year.
We actually stayed in our villas last Easter with some friends and their children and it was simply magical. From the village's Easter candle procession through to eating the most delicious Easter bread and partaking in the 'burning of Judas' ceremony, the Cretan Easter is an experience you don't want to miss!
The Greek Easter, with Good Friday on the 6th and Easter Monday on the 9th of April, is the biggest celebration of the year, so you can celebrate Easter at home first and then head over to Crete to keep the celebrations going.
Join the festivities in Melidoni, near Chania, in one of our Solid stone Villas. Seven nights from £780.00 - one of our lowest rates of the year, so book now!
