Re: Rousies to Omalos

John Yes I have the map and I remembered this morning about the route descriptions on it, I just had to unfold it one more section and there they were with the timings also! We know the area very well as we have visited Sfakia about 15 times, always staying in Anopolis as part of the holiday. We kno...

Re: Two Cretan airports among Europe’s worst

We have flown in and out of Chania 5 times in the last couple of years. No problems whatsoever.

Re: Sfakia report, Oct 6th

The new cafe was not yet open when we were in Loutro in early May. We called in for refreshments in late September when we were staying in Loutro again for a few nights. It is in a lovely location and gets a nice breeze on hot days. We wish the owners well with their new business.

Re: New ferry timetable 2017

We had hoped to take the ferry from Sougia to Chora Sfakia with a small car on 26th April, but it is only taking foot passengers until 1st May ! That means a long drive up and back down again. Still worth it though!

Re: When are you coming to Crete (again) in 2017?

We had to settle for only one holiday in Sfakia this year but flights and accommodation already booked for Anopolis and Loutro in late April 2017. We hope to get back again in late September/early October as well.

Re: Woman drowned at Vatalos Beach, Frangokastello

I have swam in the sea at Vatalos on a few occasions over the years. Mostly late September/early October when the water is warm and the beach can be empty. I am always wary of the strong currents, particularly in this area of Frangokastello. On one occasion when I turned to swim back to shore, I rea...
