Crete, the largest
of the Greek islands and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean, has
less than half the average population density of the EU and has become
the most popular Greek island for those wishing to retire or set up
semi-permanent residence. Unlike many of the smaller islands, life
goes on after summer; and why shouldn't it when spring and autumn temperatures

comes with a free and limitless supply of Crete's unreserved hospitality!
The landscape is

ablaze with colour and rugged slopes plunging 600 metres to the valley
