Greek Travel Guide 2017 – Crete



We just got back from the most remarkable family vacation in Majestic Greece! The flight was very straight forward from Montreal to Athens. We then continued on our journey with Aegean Airlines 50 min to Crete (Kreta) The largest of the Greek islands into Heraklion Airport. We decided to rent a vehicle to drive to the many beautiful beaches and attractions around the island. We rented a gorgeous villa (Irene Villa) Sfakaki 50 Min from the airport. .WE were welcomed with open arms in true Greek Cretan Style with a barbeque and wine. The location was absolutely perfect – only 80 metres from a private beach area with beautiful water. As well as a gorgeous restaurant and grocery store 60 metres away which is perfect for everyday needs. We dined in a few times at the very chic Pantelis Tavern Restaurant. (Exceptionally Fresh and Divine)beach


The water in Greece is so stunning and clear. We hoped from beach to beach during our many day trips.

Some of my favourite spots were:

1.Preveli  (Rethymno)

2. Elafonisi Beach

3. Plakias Beach

4. Seitan Limania

There are endless places to eat and drink 7 days a week. You guys definitely need to head to Greece. There are speed ferries available daily to Santorini. A quick 2hr ferry offered 4 times a day.

The Food was absolutely fresh and amazing. Each meal was prepared with a touch of love. Some of favourites included Saganaki, Zucchini frits, greek salad, mixed grills and baklava ice-cream off course. We walked at least 10km a day so I didn’t put on a pound(Thankfully) More Our Greek Adventure to follow soon.


Stay Tuned

  • We recently started a family recipe book that highlights our absolute favourite dishes. The kids think this is the best thing ever and are totally into documenting everything. We basically started a tradition and this makes me sooo happy ❤️ Life’s small gains are huge #wins @goop #ingoophealth
  • Flowers from my baby girl is the sweetest way to wake up on a Saturday morning. I think I need to do an entire segment on mother’s and daughters. Love each of my kids alike with all my heart but there is something unique when a daughter is growing and learning from her mama ⭐️🌸
  • Walking into the weekend with an enthusiastic stride 🌸🌸🌸🌸 I’m on the hunt for Cherry Blossoms to go with my outfit. If you see any in your city, let me know. I was talking to my husband the other night and I think Japan is on the list for next year. I’m dreaming of dancing in Cherry Blossom Gardens 🌸 @revolve @revolvebeauty 📸 @irina_shakhova_photographe

  • Following my appointment and GLO peel last week at @jagcosmetics, my skin was feeling amazing - smooth and glowing! (What a treat!)⭐️We went home with a number of @vivierskin products, including the full GrenzCine line, which includes the GrenzCine Serum, Eye, Neck, and Body. The line is great for anti-aging, skin rejuvenation ,but also a perfect line for post-treatment that’s easy to do at home. It helps boost the hydration of the skin and keeps it looking luminous. My skin has definitely managed to maintain it's glow and I'm loving the anti-aging effects I'm seeing already. Excited to see my continued results with these products! Promise to keep you posted! #vivierskin #thebeautyofresults #ad
  • Now where are my beach side cocktails 🐬🐟🐠 - Reality is I’m just daydreaming and currently making  a cuppa tea #reallife . The truth is this shoot happened and I had the time of my life. Those kinda memories are worth reposting over and over 🐚
  • You don’t ever need permission to be the best version of yourself. I have trained myself not to hold back on what is intended for me. Inch by inch there is a little magic waiting. The road may not be easy or smooth but keep going ⭐️⭐️ @revolve @revolvebeauty #revolvearoundtheworld 📸 @irina_shakhova_photographe
