Area & Experiences
Half an hour from Heraklion airport, in the north of the island, Palekastro is a little fishing village perched on a hillside. Nestled between olive groves and tiny secluded coves, the immaculate facades line up along the coast, down to the harbour. You will find Villa Pelagos at a bend in the coastal road, poised as though weightless over the gulf of Heraklion.

In the labyrinthine leather district of Chania
Step back in time with a visit to one of the last surviving tanneries in the Tabakaria district of Chania. Salt, lime, olive oil, pigments, tannins: discover the subtle beauty of the traditional craft which has thrived here for over a century.
Become an olive oil expert
Olive oil alone symbolizes the Cretan diet and perfumes the natural soaps of the island. Let the passionate craftsmen show you what it takes to become a real expert in the gathering of olives, the extraction of their nectar and the making of typically Mediterranean products.
Explore the ancient ruins at nightfall
