The American website also glorifies Corfu and Crete.

Speaking about Crete, the site says: "Most islands are sparsely populated during off-season months, with most residents seasonal summer help or spending the colder seasons in warmer locales on the country’s mainland."

"But the island of Crete is practically large enough to be its own nation, boasting a thriving population who call the island home year-round.

"The size of the island also allows for more favorable weather conditions in the off-season so you can enjoy the many sites, such as the ancient Palace of Knossos, the beautiful Agios Minas Cathedral and the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion."
