A restful retreat in Crete

Before it was a seaside resort, Stalos was a rest stop for weary shepherds herding their flocks over the hillsides. And the vibe hasn’t changed much since then. A traditional Cretan village overlooking a curve of terracotta-coloured sand, Stalos holidays are the perfect choice for anyone just looking for a place to recharge.

The lovely beach has Blue Flag status and is well served by water-sports concessions, so you can explore the waves by doing body boarding and some low-key surfing on holidays to Stalos, as well as swim in the turquoise sea and relax on the sand. Above the beach lies the resort area with tavernas and hotels, while a little further inland is the charming original village, where you can wander the pretty streets and do the serious work of relaxing the way the weary shepherds used to.
