Cretan traditional houses were designed to keep their residents cool during the hot summers and warm in winter. Built around an open-air courtyard, usually shaded by arbors or bougainvillea, they still are the setting for much of Cretan family life, including cooking, dining and story-telling.⁠

The population of Crete has been termed as the longest living and healthiest people in the world, thanks to their diet which has been scientifically identified as the healthiest eating regime in the world. The limited consumption of meat and dairy products, and the extended consumption of vegetables, which are a central part of the Cretan diet, are also very beneficial to their health.
.
The same goes for the way of living of the Cretan people. Most of them live a calm life, with strong ties with - and the full support of - their family. All these social and psychological factors also help longevity in Crete.

Almyra restaurant is shielded from the beating sun by a bamboo covered wooden pergola, sprawling to an open plan space where the soothing breeze of the ocean is literally close enough to touch. The gentle palette of blue and white, found in its decorative items, is a nod to the Greek flag. ⁠

Our Concierge suggests a day visit to the picturesque, small coastal town of Elounda, an unsuspecting gem of the northern coast of Crete, to swim and sunbathe on one of its stunning, Blue-Flag awarded beaches. You can relax there, snorkel with your kids, enjoy the warm sun or do water sports. Then head for a simple, yet delicious, long lunch in the sunshine in one of the many family-run tavernas.⁠
