Crete, the largest of the Greek islands and the fifth largest in
the Mediterranean, has less than half the average population density
of the EU and has become the most popular Greek island for those
wishing to retire or set up semi-permanent residence. Unlike many of
the smaller islands, life goes on after summer; and why shouldn't it
when spring and autumn temperatures in the 70s sandwich short, mild
winters? Countless traditional villages amble through life as they
have done for centuries. Even the smallest have a village square,
kafenion and taverna, where you can eat and drink the day away for
not much more than a pocket of small change. In general, the cost of
living is 40% less than that of the UK and comes with a free and
limitless supply of Crete's unreserved hospitality!
The landscape is as varied as it is beautiful; the backbone of
the island is mountainous, with snow capped peaks on view until May.
There is the famous Samaria Gorge, Europe's longest at 18
kilometres. It provides fertile areas ablaze with colour and rugged
slopes plunging 600 metres to the valley floor
