Daios Cove, Crete

You flop down on the flawless beach, in an idyllic private cove, close your eyes against the warming sun and sigh. Why isn’t life always like this? As the other bits of everyday living float away you slowly arrive at the realisation that – for the time being at least – life actually is exactly like this. And there’s no better place to help you enjoy every moment than Daios Cove.

Make it part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Crete and you’ll find that the gentle Mediterranean, the elegant spa and the fine food conspire together to bring you perfect relaxation. And if you can bear to take yourself out of the cove, there’s even a picture postcard town nearby, complete with a great nightlife and a 7th century Byzantine chapel.
