Families should not be put off visiting Crete

Families should not be put off visiting Crete

Now the school holidays are in full swing, increasing numbers of young people are heading to the Greek island of Crete to indulge in the late night clubbing scene.  However advises that UK families should not be put off visiting the island.

“This increase in noise and late night partying in Crete is almost entirely confined to the resort of Malia, which has become the favourite party town for students this summer.” said CEO Alex Francis.

He continued: “Generally during the months between June and August, Crete and in particular Malia is a top choice for students and young revellers.  However other visitors including families and couples should not be deterred.  Crete is the largest of all the Greek islands and offers plenty of other choices of places to stay that are well away from the lively hustle of Malia.” has over 300 hotels on sale on the island of Crete, many of which are in smaller towns and villages or located on the outskirts of Malia where visitors can still enjoy a peaceful retreat.  Asterias Village in Hersonissos is one such property.  It’s a beautiful family-run and family oriented three star hotel perched high above the main town between two very traditional Greek villages.  The emphasis here is very much geared towards young families as the hotel has a policy of only accepting children aged between 2 – 11 years old, along with couples and other adult guests.

The main advice this summer from is to liaise directly with their team to select a holiday that best suits individual requirements.  The website is also finely tuned to offer searches for properties and holidays suitable for families and couples, thus avoiding booking a break at one of the more lively resorts.
