About this holiday
Once you leave, you will feel like you are a part of the family.
Based on the northern shores of the island of Crete, Gouves is just

sandy beach, stroll along the promenade at sunset or even work
up an appetite with one of the land or water sports available. Pop

delectable homemade sweets with tsikoudia.

at the on-site taverna or heading into town to sample the local
