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
United Kingdom
Volkswagen Polo
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.

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.
