Enjoy a five-star Crete beach escape in a stylish bungalow with an optional sharing pool - with breakfast, optional board upgrades, and all travel

The five-star Aldemar Knossos Royal on the coast of Crete has got it down when it comes to beach luxury. Fringed by a soft stretch of white sand, which is lapped by the warm waters of the Aegean Sea, it's pretty much the ideal location for a week of eating fresh food, swimming and soaking up some Greek sunshine.

This sprawling resort right on the coast combines Minoan-style architecture with recently refurbished rooms, gleaming swimming pools, and lush gardens that put you in the perfect vacation mood. And it doesn't have to be all poolside lounging and beach bronzing: there's a wealth of water-related activities on offer, from water polo to beach volleyball, as well as a diving centre for underwater adventures.

And that's just the half of it: Crete itself awaits, abundant as it is with natural beauty and fascinating history. You're a half-hour car ride away from Heraklion, where you can roam around its fortresses (such as the 16th-century Koules Fortress), frescoes and baths, while the village of Kritsa, Knossos Palace, and Spinalonga Island are all charming sights within easy reach.

Captivating Crete

Filled with natural wonders, ancient history and a feast of delicious local flavours, Crete ticks every box for an idyllic escape. Greece's largest island juts out of the sea with high mountain peaks at almost 2,500m tall, giving you incredible views over the Cretan ocean below, and Crete's natural beauty captivates every visitor: from the hills in the east to the imposing cliff of Chania in the west, with a new sight to fall in love with at every step.

A handful of restaurants are ready to cater to your every need: head to Fontana Amorosa if you're up for some healthy gourmet food, try Villas or Artemis restaurants for inspired and classic meals, or get your fill of excellent seafood at the beach bar restaurant. Don't miss out on lobster night, which takes place on Tuesdays at Fontana Amorosa.
