Crete, Gouves


Crete, Gouves

Each year, I take every opportunity I can to visit this beautiful island. It is just over three hours flying time from London. To arrive on a warm, barmy evening, a full moon watching over you, the chirping of cicadas, the air filled with scent of the sea. The sights and sounds, Oh bliss.

The warmth and friendliness of the people are matched by the beautiful and spectacular mountain backdrop. The deep blue, crystal sea or the golden sands covered with other holiday makers drenched in sunshine (and tanning oil), it really does hold a special place in my heart.

After the rushing, pushing and deadlines of London, the Cretan's way of life, is one of the best I have ever come across.  

Their total lack of timing, GMT (Greek maybe time), that laid back approach, and time for everyone, is something to cherish.  So, so laid back, that time goes out the window, even the nightingales sing in broad day light, believe me!

I have been seduced by this enchanted island.  Please take a look at my favourite places in which to eat, sleep and watch the world go by whilst I am in Crete.
