Crete winter retreat

Crete in winter is like stepping back in time before tourism , enjoy the best tavernas

If you’ve ever visited Crete in the summer and wondered what it was like  pre tourism –  we now offer the opportunity to come and see for yourself.

Out of season there are empty beaches for a brisk walk, uncrowded museums, markets where you jostle only with locals and Chania’s  almost traffic free  backstreets to fully appreciate the Venetian, Greek and Ottoman mix of architecture.  Walkers will have tracks and paths to themselves and  with an average, in November, of 5 hrs sunshine per day and  temperatures  around  18 deg. it is ideal for being out and about.

A select few of our Villa owners have offered to welcome guests up to the end of December. They and we are confident you’ll love this unique experience.  Each Villa in our out of season programme has  a roaring fire, is close to a village with a taverna that stays open for the locals (so you know it’s good) and has a pool ready for use, by only the bravest.

Livathou 281 00, Spartia, Greecegreeka.com

 

Spartia beach is hidden in the middle of high rocks, and is easy to access by car.  Best time of the day is in the afternoon when sun is setting down and colours are breath taking. Water is normally fresher than in other beaches due to streams. It’s wonderful to do snorkeling, fish watching and explore cavities. Do not expect wide spaces or sunchairs and umbrellas.

If you are staying in Spartia, it’s a fair walk, or a short drive. The service by staff is outstanding, the food choice and quality of the food is fantastic. The menu has an excellent choice of traditional Greek cuisine, the portions are large well cooked and beautifully presented. Lamb Kleftico, chocolate soufle or the lemon pie are absolutely worth to try.
