Keep true to your New Year’s resolutions and beat the winter blues by planning your 2024 holiday to Crete.
The Christmas festivities were lovely – but they are now over. Instead of getting depressed, let’s remember that January marks new beginnings – a time to shed old habits and welcome the new you. Taking better care of oneself ranks high on everyone’s New Year’s resolutions lists – and in view of our hectic lives, this promise becomes more imperative than ever. What better way to embody self-love than with a well-deserved 2024 holiday to Crete?
Plan your 2024 holiday to Crete at the dreamy Oscar Suites & Village
With bucketloads of history, Crete is a fascinating open-air museum – yet along with the ancient ruins, Greece’s largest island boasts striking variety and abundant natural beauty. Think rugged seascapes and dramatic mountains; pink-sand beaches and tiny bays of sapphire waters; vibrant towns and time-forgotten villages; healthy but hearty food, time-honoured culture and hospitable inhabitants. And that’s just scratching the surface. That’s why Crete has never ceased to attract a diverse range of visitors in search of the authentic – from famous writers to celebrity chefs, from hard-core hippies to bona fide royalty and from sports lovers to party animals.
Whatever your style or mood, you can’t really go wrong with a 2024 holiday to Crete – but choosing your accommodations with care will only enhance your experience.
2024 holiday to Crete and Oscar Suites & Village
A short drive away from the iconic old town of Chania – and just steps away from the vanilla-coloured sands of Agia Marina -Platanias, the Oscar Suites & Village is the perfect base for capturing the diverse delights of the island.
Our family-style, eco- conscious hotel offers a comprehensive choice of spacious yet cosy studios and apartments to suit different party combinations and accommodation needs. All are bright and airy, gracefully decorated and equipped with private balconies with a garden, pool or mountain view. They also come with the latest creature comforts, as well as fully fitted kitchenettes, allowing you to live as independently as you wish in self-catering style. And for those who want to splash out a bit, there is a luxurious suite with a sizeable balcony and a private sea-gazing jacuzzi.
Alongside the much-needed R&R, you’ll certainly appreciate the hotel’s location. Saunter down the beach and let the crystal-clear waters lap at your toes; grab a lounger, sit back and relax while you catch up on your reading; build castles on the sand – or try windsurfing your way across the breathtaking coastline if you’re looking for something more exciting.
Some kilometres away, the mighty Samaria Canyon also beckons adrenaline seekers – test your prowess with a hard trek up or take it eas(ier) with a hike at Agia Eirini or Imbros Gorges. But if you’d rather altogether avoid any form of strenuous exercise, head to the sleepy villages on the foothills of the White Mountains to get carried away by the scents of fresh herbs and honey, break bread in cafes with wise old locals and satiate your palates in hidden gem of tavernas. Also, make sure to spend some time in the Old Town of Chania – get lost in the scenic alleyways, explore quaint shops and enchanting museums, have a coffee or raki on the waterfront, and enjoy an all-senses adventure. With an evocative mix of Venetian, Ottoman, Arabic and Byzantine influences, Chania is as romantic as they get – and sure to inspire with your own tales to tell.
After a day’s worth of delightful discoveries, your home-away-from-home at the Oscar Suites & Village will await to restore and revive you. Take a cooling dip in the pool – there are two of them to choose from, as well as a side children’s pool to keep your young ones happy and entertained; enjoy a refreshing cocktail at the bar; hit the gym or head to Valentino restaurant for a gastronomic experience you’ll be forever grateful for.
This year, stay true to yourself – starting by planning your 2024 holiday to Crete and the Oscar Suites & Village!
