This summer rest at Ierapetra – Greece

“Out in the dark blue sea there lies a land called Crete, a rich and lovely land, washed by the waves on every side…” The Odyssey

Back in ancient times, Crete was described like that, and it is how it remained nowadays too. Spectacular setting of peace, tranquillity, and truly breathtaking scenery. Here you can let nature, history and beautiful weather transport you from the stress and strain of urban living, while enjoying all the comforts and amenities of modern life.


Being the only town on the south coast of Crete, Ierapetra is the most populous town in the region of Lasithi. Today the area of Ierapetra is one of the most productive regions of Greece and one of Europe’s main sources of early fresh fruits, vegetables, olive oil and flowers. Ierapetra has a lot to offer to its visitors and is a great place to enjoy beautiful nature and traditional Greek atmosphere.


With an average mark of an 8,1 for the QualityCoast Policy Award, Ierapetra was awarded a Gold Award with excellence in Environment, Identity and Socio-Economics.

With a number of important cultural features and the traditional way of cultivation in agriculture still being present, local identity is an important issue for Ierapetra.
