How to get there

Paleochora and Anidri are on the much quieter and unspoilt South coast of Crete, about an hour's drive from the nearest airport in Chania (on the Western North coast). In the holiday season it is cheap and easy to get there, via EasyJet as well as RyanAir, plus a variety of charter flights. Also British Air, Aegean Airlines and Olympic Airlines have good flights to Athens, but you may want to avoid that stop-over.
If you are living on the continent (rather than UK), and want to use your own car whilst in Crete, it may be worth driving down, via Serbia or Italy, and then take the ferry from Piraeus to Chania/Souda.
Once at the airport, there are a good number of Car Hire companies, especially if you book in advance online. We recommend: Kriti Plus and AutoClub.
