Glorious Crete

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

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.

THE STYLE FILES Crete, The decor of the houses is fresh and cozy: blue shutters, white plastered walls and beautiful stenciled concrete floors. Balconies and windows of all the residences have breathtaking sea view to the sea and to the beautiful gardens of the hotel. Summer here seems to last forever!

Look how simple and how elegant the homes are… so fresh and minimal, yet infused with style.

Oh Crete you are just fabulous!
