Roundtrip Crete
If you like to be on the move, and are interested in seeing as much as possible of Crete, but have only a limited amount of time, we offer the following suggestions which include car and hotel bookings:

A: Crete in one week

Your car will await your arrival in either Heraklion or Chania airport and from this point you immediately begin your journey. The overnight stops have been carefully selected to take in a wide variety of areas around Crete. All the hotels are standard C class and have en suite facilities, situated in generally quiet but central positions with breakfast included. Your programme includes:

A1: Arrival in Heraklion Airport

Route: Heraklion - Agios Nikolaos or Ierapetra - Plakias - Chania - Heraklion

  • Day 1: After collecting your car, and dependent on your arrival time, you can book into your hotel in Heraklion and visit the Minoan Palace at Knossos and the world famous museum close to the town centre.

  • Days 2 & 3: If you are spending the night at Agios Nikolaos you can stop on the way at the Minoan site of Malia and one of the many sandy beaches, or maybe visit the Lassithi Plain with the cave of Zeus. The following day can be spent on a trip to the delightful town of Sitia and the palm beach of Vai, or to the Minoan Site at Kato Zakros. Alternatively, if you wish to stay at Ierapetra you can stop on the way to see the wonderful views of Mirabello Bay and the ancient ruins of Gournia followed by a day of sightseeing on the south coast, to the east of Ierapetra.

  • Day 4 & 5: A long drive on the south coast road through the old villages clinging to the sides of the mountains, and with spectacular views over the Libyan Sea. You can stop at the sites of Gortys, Phaistos and Agia Triada, before finally getting to the small seaside town of Plakias, where you spend two nights. The next day can be spent exploring this delightful area and visiting the magnificent monastery at Moni Preveli.

  • Day 6 & 7: A drive to Chania stopping to see the huge fort on the beach at Frangokastello and a short diversion for coffee in Chora Sfakion before crossing the mountains to see Aptera and Souda Bay on the way to Chania. Your last full day you can spend in town, or seeing the many sights of Akrotiri, or for the really adventurous a day out to visit the beaches of Phalassarna, or Elafonisi on the far western coast.

A2: Arrival in Chania Airport

Route: Chania - Plakias - Agios Nikolaos or Ierapetra - Rethymno - Chania

The same route will be followed and the same suggested programme can be used but in reverse.

  • Day 1 Chania

  • Days 2 & 3 Plakias

  • Days 4 & 5 Ierapetra or Aghios Nikolaos

  • Days 6 & 7 Rethymno or back to Chania

You may wish to stay on Crete for a second week using one of our other properties as a base. This can all be pre-booked for you and, if you wish, you can keep the same car returning it to the airport at the end of your trip.

B: Crete "a la carte" in two weeks

The route and length of stay is entirely up to you. We will be pleased to assist you in suggesting a programme to suit particular needs or special interests. Once a programme has been finalised, we arrange for a car to be waiting for you at either Heraklion or Chania airport and to book your accommodation, which is normally in "C" class hotels for a minimum of two nights each. If you wish we can book you into a higher grade hotel, subject to availability.
