We covered lots of miles, The car was reliable and ideal for the roads we travelled. We visited many places with it and thought that it was much better than going on coach excursions.

Take care on the roads and make sure you have plenty of fuel as the roads are very hilly in Crete, especially if you have a small car like we did.

We stayed at Orelia Villas just outside Kalamaki on the south coast for the second time. Wonderful setting. Beautiful accommodation. Unfortunately high winds spoiled things a little during the first week. But still had a great holiday

6 July 2022
We spent 13 days traveling around the island. three days based in Rethimno (Atlantis Beach hotel & Spa), five days Near Zaros, (Eleonas Country Village) in the mountains and the final five days in Agios Nikolaos (Minos Palace hotel & suites). All the hotels exceeded expectation and we managed to see a fair bit of the island from the locations we chose. First time in Crete and we were very impressed.

6 October 2021
Traveled to Crete, stayed in south-east of island near Ierapetra. Great for a quiet break away from the crowds but within 10 min drive of a local town with places to eat/things to see and 45 mins of Agios Nikolaos which was lovely.
United Kingdom

3 October 2021
We visited South East Crete. A great area with a lot of spectacular views and quieter roads. An automatic car is easier to drive if you’re not used to left-hand drive.

Loved Crete its people, its sense of history and its traditions, including gastronomic. Particularly recommend the wild eastern shorelines-but you have to like driving hairpin bends.
