Crete, Greek Islands



Crete, Greek Islands

This park was featured during ‘A Place in the Sun: Winter Sun – Crete 2017 / Episode 72’ on 6 January 2017.

This exciting new mobile home development ‘Creta Camping’ in Crete is situated in Kato Gouves and is only a short drive from Heraklion airport and ferry port. The current campsite is situated directly across the road from the sea and our first few mobile homes here in Crete will have direct front-line Sea views.

In Kato Gouves, you will find a selection of fabulous beaches to satisfy every preference and a little further along the coast you will discover a few secluded rocky areas that offer a little more privacy. The larger, sandy beaches have sun loungers and parasols along with smooth seas to swim in, perfect for a very relaxing holiday or longer stay. The site is open for 12 months of the year so you can maximise your leisure time by visiting as often as you wish.

The seafront strip at Kato Gouves has several bars and supermarkets, the main shopping streets run up a gentle hill winding up towards the main road for a few hundred metres, there is an excellent choice of restaurants to eat in offering great value and choice and a selection of tourist shops to look around. A place worth visiting is the beachside church of Saint Constantine and Helen and the Ruin of Ceramics Workshop in the Minoan era. Additionally, you can visit the cave of Agia Paraskevi and the upper village Gouves, with the traditional streets and churches, all within easy reach of the site.

This small campsite ‘Creta Camping’ has a choice of plots available for mobiles homes; these are either set amongst the olive trees or a small selection have sea views. The site is ideally located on the seafront, the site provides an enjoyable Greek experience with a family run Taverna, mini market with fresh bread daily, beach bar, laundry facilities and children’s play area. Owners are welcome to sublet their homes here using the site’s reception which offers a management service to deal with arrivals, departures, linen, gas, security deposit, meter reading, cleaning etc.

Caravans in the Sun has a full range of mobile homes available which are suitable for this park. We can supply any make and model of mobile home including Delta, Willerby, Pemberton, Victory, ABI, Swift, BK, Regal, Tingdene and IRM to name a few, if your choice is not listed please contact us for an accurate sited price.

Recommendation – Due to the proximity to the sea we recommend the upgrade from the standard aluminium cladding to hard vinyl cladding and to upgrade to a fully galvanised chassis. Additional cost of these products is approximately £3,000 on top of the advertised price, we do not enforce this, it is purely a recommendation but this is the purchasers choice entirely.
