No Dick, I 'borrowed' the clip off you tube as it shows the hotel and area around it quite well.

Looking at your map Pete I notice that you have a number places on Crete. What are the roads like? Most single track? I am thinking of getting the once a week ferry from Gythio to Kissamoss. From what I hear though it is not the most reliable. Turn up and wait perhaps for a day or 2.

What ferry did you take?

Thumbs up

The majority of those were spots were passed on to me by Don Madge just before he 'retired' from motorhoming.

We haven't been to Crete yet but Don went a few times via Piraeus iirc.

Be good if you could update some of those if you get there.

The roads on Crete were fine 30 years ago - it is a big island and with a big population. There may be some single'track roads leading to a remote beach but that would be all I think, but maybe some short narrow parts in mountain villages.

I was going to sugges the ferry from Gythio, but was not sure if it is still running; definitely save the drive back to Athens and unfortunately the ferry from Monevassia to Athens stopped a few years ago - pity. Good thing is the roads are better - the two factors are probably interconnected
