Re: This is the new airport of Chania

Can't wait to try it out. This June it took an hour to check in the queue of passengers (an ordinary A320 load of say 180 people) through a single desk. And there was just the one baggage screening machine - had there been another flight checking in at the same time there would have been chaos. It w...

Re: Accommodation in Livaniana

As far as I'm aware there is no accommodation in Livaniana. The village is now all-but deserted. The nearest places to stay would be on the coast at Lykos (the Small Paradise and the other two tavernas-with-rooms). As I expect you know, from there you caneasily walk up to Livaniana on the old donkey...

Re: Mosquitos

There were plenty of mosquitos in Ag Roumeli last week. Though I wasn't bitten in Sougia, Likos or Chora Sfakion. Like Mike, I am a magnet for anything which bites or stings, but it wasn't just me being nibbled. If you're susceptible I'd suggest bringing some repellent with you and/or covering up. Jan

Re: Livaniana Taverna

Can confirm the lunchtime closing (and no access/honesty box) during that time.

A great shame as we too were looking forward to seeing the new arrangements. Two other people passing at the same time were also disappointed.

Re: Sfakia report, April 24th - high mountain flowers

More than a teeny bit...

Pleased that you saw the peonies in full flower. They'll be long gone by the time we're there in June.

Re: Places to stay

Do you fully understand what you are taking on? It isn't a 'walk' to Sougia. People trying that stretch wouldn't normally be asking for recommendations for accommodation. Maybe Richard means 'take the boat from Ag Roumeli to Sougia then make day walks in either direction along the coast using Sougi...

Re: Greek tourism arrivals and revenues broke all-time records in 2015

I understand from friends in the travel business elsewhere in Greece that it's very expensive/dificult for Russians to obtain a visa for independent travel but much more straightforward for those taking packaged holidays. So there aren't many Russian non-package tourists travelling, and I don't know...
