The famous Cretan hospitality

Join our society and experience the Cretan hospitality

Our experience is the Cretan people are universally friendly, helpful, and extremely generous. Stop for a cup of coffee, (be it in a mountain village or a coastal town) and you’ll be greeted with a smile and friendly hello.

Global Voluteers

We really cannot tell you how the hospitality of Crete is. You have to experience it for yourself. In a world gone mad, where no-one talks to you or looks at you anymore, it is revitalizing to the soul to be treated with such respect and openness. The Cretans teach us all how to be truly wealthy.
