Why not visit Crete out of season, You can still get a tan in Nov/Dec and its cheaper - Here's a quick guide..

NOV,DEC & JAN: Tourism comes to a halt at the end of October with the end of charter flights. These months are as quiet as February & march but the chances of nice weather are much higher. It is also still possible to swim in the sea. All in all, a great time to be on Crete if you are prepared to risk the odd day of rain.

FEB to MARCH: This is the real winter time. The weather can be cold, Windy and rainy, so avoid these months!

APRIL:The weather can be very pleasant or very rainy. The nights will still be cool. After the winter rains the island is at its greenest and literally carpeted with flowers. April sees the first tourists & is also the time of the Greek Easter (not on the same date as the Catholic Easter), the most important feast of the year giving you the best opportunity to experience the hospitality of traditional Crete.

MAY: The start of the season, not busy and a lovely time to visit Crete, a great time to go.

Golf

Crete currently has one golf course built in 2004 and is situated near Heraklion which is approx 1 hour 20 mins from the villa.

Special Interest Holidays

The area around the villa is famous for its walking tours and trips to Samaria Gorge would be a must for the enthusiast.

Two water parks are located on the island with the nearest being just 25 mins drive from the villa. Chania harbour is a lovely area to explore with a variety of shops and stalls.

The Market in Chania hosts a variety of local produce including fish, meats and local herbs and spices.

Lake Kournos is just a 20 minute drive away and provides an alternative setting to the seaside. The beach of Almerida is an ideal spot for sunworshippers and families as its shallow waters provide a safe area to paddle, build sand castles and have fun beside the sea.

Sunbeds are available on the beach (a small cost is involved) and as the tavernas are within a few steps, Almerida is an ideal spot to enjoy a cold beer or glass of retsina at lunchtime.
