The largest and most southerly of all the Greek islands, Crete is the legendary birthplace of Zeus, steeped in mythology and classical history. Minoans ,Saracens, Turks and Venetians have all left their mark, creating an abundance of ancient sites.

Crete separates the Aegean from the Libyan Sea and marks the boundary between Europe and Africa. Majestic mountains rise in its centre – the White Mountains, Psiloritis, Dikti, while its plateaus are split by deep gorges and end in fertile valleys.

The coastline varies from long stretches of soft sand and tiny coves, to rocky shores full of interesting pools to explore. The scenery is constantly changing – in one place harsh and barren, in another wooded and gentle.

Vasia Royal is located in Gournes and only 16km away from Heraklion airport.
Its location is within easy reach of most tourist attractions and Cretan natural beauties.
