Cretans are hospitable, generous and fearless. They have an uncompromising spirit and a strong passion for life itself. They have their own dialect, their own dances, and a specific form of expression through traditional songs called ‘mantinades’ that are accompanied by lyre and lute.

They love their homeland and this shows in the way they care for it. They can cross wild gorges and climb steep mountains and find solace in drinking their favourite Raki at mostly every occasion. They are intense and calm at the same time.

They will welcome you like you are part of their family and make you feel at home, in an instant. This is the amazing Cretan culture that is pure, genuine and heartfelt in every way.
