Set in the historic village of Maleme, Crete, just three minutes walk from the beach; the Mistral Hotel is a resort catering exclusively for independent travellers, from their 30s right up to their 70s.

The Mistral Hotel’s concept - Mistral Singles, is for the independent traveller who desires good food, good company and a choice of interesting excursions with a variety of themed holidays throughout the season. This provides guests with an excellent opportunity to learn new skills, make friends through mutual interests, while embracing the Cretan lifestyle.

Taking advantage of the natural beauty of Crete, the team at the Mistral have created a walking experience planned for 6th to 12th May 2014.  A great opportunity will allow guests to explore some of the island’s most stunning scenery, ranging from pretty coastal and hillside treks, to the Samaria Gorge - one of Europe’s longest gorges. The holiday caters for all abilities, offering easy to moderate walks for two to four hours at a time. A week of discovering different sceneries and landscapes promises to be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Mistral Hotel’s Walking Holiday costs £675 per person and includes:

  • Seven nights’ accommodation in a superior room
  • Chania Airport transfers
  • Seven breakfasts and six dinners (including wine and coffee)
  • Four guided walks with lunch provided
