Coronavirus vs Holiday in Crete

Europe is currently in the midst of the coronavirus Covid- 19 outbreak and holidaymakers are getting anxious about how this could affect their holidays. CreteVillas4U is following World Health Organisation guidelines to ensure the health and well-being of guests and staff, while all guests are reminded that they should ensure they have the appropriate travel insurance for their holiday and follow EU health and travel instructions before, during and after going abroad.

Although there is no longer any coronavirus free country in Europe, there are less affected destinations that await you once the health crisis is behind us. In Crete, the air quality is higher and population density lower than other popular European destinations. For security reasons, large hotel complexes (more than 500 rooms) and cruises should be avoided at the moment, while tourist apartments, villas, B&B and medium-sized hotels are preferable to reduce the risk of contagion. 

The following destinations are most affected

Italy: Venice, Milan, Rome, Bergamo, Florence, Turin

France: Amiens, Bordeaux, Oise, Morbihan          

Germany: Berlin and the region of Bavaria.

For the moment, all our services are normally provided and the quality of life, for which Crete is famous, remains high. If you belong to the general population and feel fit and well, with no symptoms similar to those of flu, you still have a chance to rest and recharge in Crete in your own independent villa in seclusion, where you can soothe some of the worries, away from everything. But as European countries remain on high alert and until the situation will be clearer in the near future, it is advised to be up to date with travel precautions and public health measures.
