Just back from a lovely week in Crete Simpson Travel excellent We stayed in Arugula the biggest villa....excellent accomm everything has been thought of hair dryer, safe ,bath robe slippers, beach towels umbrellas. Quiet stunning location lovely views of the White Mountains Super pool and wonderful gardens...... Nico the owner friendly and welcoming Trish the rep has lived there for 10 years so friendly, kind and helpful Ruby and Lena serve breakfast lovely preserves, bread, cakes, pancakes and any type of egg.............would have liked more fresh fruit. The bacon and sausage should be ditched not something they do well in Crete. Two good tavernas in village, excellent cake shop and bakery Good kind friendly people.
Road signs are rubbish in Crete but roads are quiet as petrol is 25p a litre more there. Visit the wonderful Botanical Gardens and Lake Kounass and go shopping in the leather lanes in Chania good leather goods and sandals
Don't ask directions in local villages as little English is spoken and many seem unaware of the monastries and Venetian ruins on the doorstep Will go back a week wasn't long enough!
