Last visited Crete: August 2000

Crete is special to me because As well as having a well deserved holiday after exams, I met some great people who I still keep in touch with even now.

Favourite restaurants in Crete: I stayed in Koutouloufari for two weeks, during this time I tried three or four of the restaurants around my hotel. All were great: well priced fresh food with friendly service.

Favourite accommodation in Crete: In October I am due to stay in Koutouloufari in the Stalis Appartments- any comments?

Favourite beach in Crete: Hersonnissos - although I\'m more of a swimmming pool person than beach!
You have to see in Crete: If you have the opportunity to visit Santorini I would strongly recommend that you do so. Although the ferry ride over there takes a good couple of hours (if I remember correctly) the views and atmosphere of such a beautiful island are not to be missed.
*** Not such a good idea though for people with mobility problems or young children.

Night Life in Crete: When I last visited Crete I wasnt particularly a clubby person, although I am visiting Koutouloufari this September with a friend and would appreciate any recomendations of slightly smaller, more personal bars... Please forward me any suggestions :)

Off the beaten path in Crete: I enjoyed walking around the villages to get a real sense of what was going on.

When in Crete be careful about The sun: drink plenty of bottled water. Also look after your skin- any sun burn will be very unpleasant.

Transportation: During my stay we used taxis and a few coaches. I would recommend either of these as the service was reliable and friendly.

Cultural Tips:Learn abit of the language, always goes down well if you make the effort.

Extra Notes: If there are any regular visiters to Koutouloufari out there. I would appreciate any comments- has it changed at all? Which are still good restaurants to go to?
