“Stay at the Minos Beach for the best of several worlds. You may not feel inclined to wander beyond the lush gardens, dotted with a quirky collection of contemporary artworks, or go further than the semi-private coves and beaches – or even to leave your dazzling whitewashed cottage. Four restaurants mean there’s plenty of choice for meals, but for those inclined to explore further, the brighter lights of lively Aghios Nikolaos are within easy walking distance. Good for a family holiday, with space for tots to play and enough activities to keep active teens happy too.”
