    Good to have early warning about Georgioupolis - some people like the crowds but we try to avoid them. Our second week is to be based nearer the north coast. Mike

    Great info here. Nice to have my memory jogged on a winter's day of what Crete has to offer.

    We used Greenways as you suggested and found them excellent with the car in good condition and the car waiting for us at the airport despite us being late on arriving.
