The Beauty of Crete


This year was the first time I went on a girls holiday with Charlene and our friend Sarah and our main priority's were peaceful and affordable and Crete ticked the boxes. 




Where to stay


We stayed in the area of Hersonissos at the beautiful Petros Village 

Petros village is a family run apartment complex that has it all. The village is situated along a main road but there is no disturbance as you soak up the sun by the pool. The advantage of the main road is the bus stops directly outside and just 3 stops down the road takes you into the town centre which is packed with shops, bars and restaurants. 


If you fancy staying at the village then you will be sure to have amazing home cooked food with a different special each night. The 3 of us dined for just 10euros a night so great if you are on a budget. 

We can not recommend enough the Sunday BBQ where for just 10 euros each you can eat, drink and dance the night away!

Explore 


The Safari club should be top on the list if you love action and adventure as you will explore all Crete has to offer including the cave of Zeus!!
For the sporty kind you could always walk the Samaria gorge where you can hike for around 6 hours across rocky terrain and take in great sights of Crete. For those who have ever read the award winning book from Victoria Hislop 'The Island' then the Spinalonga Island boats trip will sure to bring the book to life.

Highlights 

1) The people of Crete are truly lovely people who make you feel welcome where ever you go.
2) The food is amazing and very affordable if your on a budget.
3) Culture, the Island is packed with culture, just explore!!
4) The sun does not stop shining here so be sure to pack a high SPF.
5) Petros Village; this is not a 5* rates hotel but the people and atmosphere make this resort! I would stay here again.
