I am choosing between either Casa Leone or Amphora Hotel for 4 nights in July. I am travelling with a friend and we are two females in our late 30's. I have read good reviews on both hotels on here but it seems that Casa Leone might be a little more popular, albeit harder to get into due to only a handful of rooms. If both hotels are full are there any others that are similar in both location and style that we could try?
Re beaches is it realistic to travel to Falassarna and back in a day by bus? Not that confident in driving as I am from Australia and used to driving on the other side of the road. Which other beaches are worth a visit from Chania?
