Crete Travel Information - Paleohora Holidays in the south west

Paleohora Holidays ... a local guide for this great beach town on the south coast of Chania. Paleochora is a little bigger than a village but not quite a town and has lots of great beaches, beautiful mountains and lots to explore. Visit local beaches by boat or the island of Gavdos, the most southern island in Europe, with its many pristine and private beaches. Visit the local mountain villages, go on a dolphin cruise or simply relax on the beautiful beaches here, and think about which taverna you will choose this evening... 





The remote seaside village of Sougia

Sougia ... a local guide for this small, inaccessible seaside village on the south coast of Chania prefecture. A picturesque bay with peace and quiet, the only real access is by ferry. While away the hours conferring with the flowers...all the information you will need to arrange the most relaxing beach holiday you have ever had. There are small 'rooms for rent' run by local families, and loads of water activities to choose from. Or walkers can explore the nearby Agia Irini Gorge or hike to the ancient site of Lissos. The coastal walk to Tripiti can be arranged with Captain George, who will drop you by boat so you only need to walk one way.
