So first you can visit Arkadi Monastery, only 30 minutes from the hotel. Than drive through the Amari valley, see the new lake and gorge of St.Anthony. Than the small fishermen's resort Agia Galini. The fountain village Spili and the old minoan cemmetery at Armeni.

This is 1 day

Next day Prevelli Monastery, Palm Beach, Plakias beach resort, Frangokastello, Imbros Gorge, Chora Sfakion and this is day 2.

To the south is about 1 hour

3rd day Lake Kournas, Apokoronas, Kalives, Almirida, and the monasteries on the Akrotiri

Than of course Chania, Kissamos and Elafonnissie = day 4

Than east to Knossos, Archanes and wine area on Crete. Visit Boutari winery and the museum of Kazantzakis. day 5
