Me and the lady are looking at a Greek island to spend our summer vaccation at. Last year we where in Gouvia on Corfu and liked it a lot and thought we would hit Greece again this year due to the good experience we had last time.
We been looking at Kreta (dont know the english spelling) and we both sepparately ended up with info hinting that Chania was the way to go.
What we are looking for is a nice place to live for a low cost. We not looking for a 5 star hotel but more like 2-3 star apartments as we only use the apartment to sleep in about and perhaps rest a day or two. Of course we want a well keept place to stay at where the cleaning is top notch. We where greatly supprised by the awesomeness the Calypso apartmenthotel in Gouvia-Corfu offered. Cleaning everyday, very helpfull staff and management and of course the location of Gouvia compared to the big city of Corfu town. We looking for something similar in Chania.
Sorry for the ranting, just can't stop myself :)
1. Weel keept apartment with good cleaning and a pool.
2. Hopefully close to a city center with bars and the like, but we not looking for an all out party place. We prolly will do that a night or two on our vaccation, but willing to travel some to get to a real party place.
3. Some nice places to visit and explore in the area. Historical or great views are always nice.
So hoping to get some hints and tips from You guys here who seem to have a nice knowledge of the area and what to avoid.
Thanks in advance Friends
