Travelling alone and to a foreign destination can be a daunting prospect for even the most confident person. Many of our single travellers say they were initially terrified of the idea of solo holidays. Some nearly turned away at the last moment!
Many guests stay at the Mistral Hotel for just one week to see if they like our singles resort - only to book for two weeks next time!
Our motto is "take the plunge"! Find out for yourself how easy it is to travel alone and come and see what you're missing.
The staff at the Mistral Hotel will make sure you are made to feel more than welcome and part of a group of like-minded single travellers. We will ensure that your single travel holiday runs smoothly so that all you have to worry about is relaxing and having fun.
Your singles vacation will be hosted by Vassilis, a Cretan with great knowledge of his island and its rich history and Donna, our British hostess who will be available to help you all day.
A great way to meet other people embarking on solo travel to the Mistral Hotel is to post a message on our Facebook page. You can make friends with guests travelling at the same time as you before you even start your journey.
As a Cretan business, all the money you spend coming on holiday to the Mistral Hotel contributes to the local economy and the sustainable development of Crete. We have great love and passion for our island and preserving its traditions and culture is important to us. We annually support Greenpeace Hellas and are members of the Slow Food Movement.
