Celebrities Hang Loose at Crete’s Popular New Resort

12th October 2012 • Posted in Announcements

Booking cheap flights to Crete with us at Jet2 means you could afford to splash out on the island’s potentially more glamorous resorts, such as Daios Cove, which Lisa Maxwell visited recently.

Lisa has had a long career as an actress and presenter, and can currently be seen presenting ITV’s Loose Women. However, she had never visited Greece until she booked a recent family holiday in Crete. 

Lisa chose Daios Cove, a stunning new beach resort that has become a favourite of celebrities like cricketer Phil Tufnell, who visited at the same time as Lisa. Perched on a secluded cliff-side overlooking its own private sandy beach, but only ten minutes from the historic town of Agios Nikolaos, it is reportedly an impressive feat of architecture. In Lisa’s words, it looks as if it has just risen from the sea. 

Fun with the Family

Daios Cove is less than 60 minutes’ drive from Heraklion airport, and the ideal location for exploring the island’s many ancient sites. However, Lisa’s reason for visiting was to spend quality time with her 12-year-old daughter and partner. They stayed at a family villa with its own pool, enjoying banana boat rides and other water sports, and dips in the infinity pool – which sounds like the perfect getaway to us!

However Lisa did have one word of advice – slather on the sun lotion, as the sea breeze can make the temperatures seem cooler than they actually are. Don’t let this put you off taking cheap flights to Crete with Jet2.com at any time of year though, and with prices starting from just £76 one way including taxes, you might find them hard to resist!
