Glaros Beach Suites - Crete
Eastern Crete is an unspoilt gem in the Mediterranean and nowhere more so than the beautiful area around Kouremenos Beach. Even in the height of summer, this wonderful stretch of coastline remains blissfully untouched by mainstream tourism with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy a gentler pace of life.
This idyllic location is home to our Glaros Beach Suites, designed with the utmost care to take full advantage of their glorious seaside position and offer some of the most stylish and comfortable accommodation in this part of Crete. Inside, contemporary furnishings and a palette of soft neutrals create an elegant, informal atmosphere whilst outside, the spacious terraces are well-equipped for relaxed alfresco dining and carefree lounging overlooking the wide expanse of beach.
Though ideal for couples looking for a romantic retreat by the water, the suites are equally well suited for families seeking the perfect beachfront base in the school holidays. Without the customary crowds to spoil the view, a stretch of lawn is all that separates you from the sand and sea on your doorstep and the versatile accommodation, complete with kitchenette, makes the question of dining in or out an enviable dilemma. When you’re not in the mood for catering, the owner’s beach bar is just a stone’s throw away, offering delicious breakfasts and a tempting choice of snacks and smoothies throughout the day, whilst a couple of tavernas within easy walking distance serve excellent local fare in charmingly authentic surroundings.
Kouremenos beach is blessed with a gentle breeze during the hottest months of the year but the sea remains effortlessly calm, ideal for paddling and snorkelling. Yet if you’re feeling a little more active, one of the best windsurfing schools on the island is just a 10-minute walk away. Join in the fun or relax and enjoy a little of what you fancy at the very cool beach shack and let the experts show you how it’s done.
A short drive away, charming Palekastro follows the tune of the seasons and remains a traditional agricultural town, with all amenities and a selection of traditional tavernas hugging the attractive square. Further inland, the whole of East Crete beckons – a land of wild beauty, rugged gorges, relics from ancient civilisations and mystical lunar landscapes. A stay at the Glaros Beach Suites offers an unforgettable opportunity to experience a taste of Grecian life as it used to be; simple, beautiful and irresistibly generous in spirit.
Good to know... It goes without saying that the road less travelled sometimes takes a little longer. The Glaros Beach Suites are a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Heraklion. However, if you fancy a night or two in Athens on route, you can fly to Sitia and the suites are just a half-hour drive away.Holiday Name : Glaros Beach Suites
