There’s a lot of Crete to see, but we only saw a small part of the north west coast. Our wish-list for this holiday was sun, warmth, quiet and a bit of culture. We were not disappointed on any front.
Our hotel was small and, although fully booked, very quiet, with the added bonus that there were no children there (yes, I know children are my job, but it’s nice to get away from them!).
We relaxed with our feet up, reading or people-watching, we had cooling drinks in local tavernas, we ate some delicious local dishes and we wandered round old historic towns and ancient archaeological sites.
Here’s a snapshot slideshow of the trip.
