Crete – Enjoy a creative meditative vacation by the sea

Creative & Meditative vacation on Crete

Welcome to the (almost) southernmost point of Europe – on the island of Minos, with over 300 days of sunshine Crete is one of the sunniest places in Europe. Bathing is possible from April to November in one of the cleanest waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The high salt content of the water has a healing effect and contributes to relaxation and well-being.

Kretakreativ is not a club or spiritual center, here the offers take place in a small framework and in a warm, family atmosphere. With our hiking and excursion offers you will get an insight into the soul of Crete.

The magic of Crete

In the center of the south coast is the picturesque Plakias, surrounded by original mountain villages, deep gorges, bizarre mountain landscapes and small bays with crystal clear water. Once considered an insider tip by backpackers, this region has developed into a destination for individual tourists.

Numerous taverns, shopping, cafes and souvenir stores complement this lively place. Ca. 2½ km from Plakias is the center of Kretakreativ, the Phoenix and Souda Mare hotels.

The Hotel Souda Mare is beautifully situated between palm trees and many plants, as well as the Hotel Phoenix, which is right next door, each offer 17 typical double rooms. They are all equipped with shower/WC and have sea view, loggia or balcony (air conditioning can be added on site). Enjoy the magnificent panoramic view from the 1. Floor of the Hotel Phoenix.

A few minutes away from the hotels, crystal clear water and a fine pebble sand beach invites you for a swim.
