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.

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.
