Five Days in the West of Crete, e-Book

Crete Travel Book

Country Road with Narrow Road Sign (image by J Vandel) Everyone knows Crete as a beach destination, and that 300 days of sunshine a year mean more chances of bliss on the sand. But as an independent visitor, who wants to do more than just lie on the beach, it can be difficult to plan a great route without knowledge of the island.

First, there's the language barrier, which can make it difficult to ask directions on back roads, how do you know what sights and villages you should be looking for? And, what is the difference between a Minoan, a Cretan and a Chaniot?

With the Five Days in the West of Crete, you won't miss any of the historic sites, interesting towns and beautiful beaches. This route will show you the wine and food in Crete, for everyday eating and everyday pleasure.

The stunning mountains and valleys of Crete will be at your fingertips –

Experience mountain hospitality and organic local food at Taverna Vegera in Zaros

Enjoy the fruit trees, vineyards and green slopes of the Amari Valley

Relish in the tiny laneways and atmosphere of the Old Town of Rethymnon
