Heraklion, Crete is one of the 142 Mediterranean destinations visited by the Cunard Cruise ships. Oh and what a port of call it is, absolutely spellbinding. It made my heart sing to be there
“Greece is a vine, an olive tree and a boat” Odysseas Elytis
It would be my top destination choice for so many reasons.
In Crete vibrant gates, doors and shutters open onto exquisite views and beautiful homes.
I am in love with the simple white homes whose outer serenity is punctuated by bright paintwork
Colour is everywhere and it just makes my heart happy
Hospitality i is abundant and centred around local produce which really enable s you to appreciate this beautiful island
Wood , fresh flowers. rustic food just the perfect combination
Look how simple and how elegant the homes are… so fresh and minimal, yet infused with style.
Oh Crete you are just fabulous!
Here is a rather lovely pinterest board I created to show you more of the style, serenity we found on this magical island.
