The most atmospheric place to stay in Chania is within the walls of the old town, close to the Venetian harbour. Ideally, choose a small guesthouse a few streets back from the water's edge, as the tavernas around the bay can get a little noisy in peak season.
The old town of Rethymnon is charming, with its narrow laneways and fortezza, there are historic sights at every turn. To really experience the tone of this beautiful harbour town, stay in the Venetian old town in a restored mansion or guesthouse.
Heraklion is in the centre of Crete, and location of the port receiving ferries from all over Greece, and an international airport. It is a modern town with a vibrant pulse. We have chosen some excellent central hotels, close to everything.
Agios Nikolaos, in the east of Crete, is one of the prettiest towns
on the island. With a cozy harbour, a stunning lake and beaches
stretching for miles, this is a thriving Greek seaside town with loads
of life and style.We have suggested four hotels close to the harbour, which make it easy to stroll out to dinner and also convenient for catching a ferry from the large ferry port. Ferries leave here for Sitia and Karpathos and on to Rhodes...
