Re: When are you coming to Crete (again) in 2018?

Arriving July. Leaving August.
We can't wait to stay in Andreas and Katerina's lovely haven from this crazy world.
The only thing I really HATE about Crete, especially Sfakia is leaving it!

Re: Two Cretan airports among Europe’s worst

What airports ANYWHERE are nice places these days?? OK, I've not been through Hania for a while and admit that Iraklion isn't great. Would it put me off visiting Crete? No way!! Consideration must be given to the huge demand due to Crete being so popular in summer, whilst in the off season, the dema...

Lovely photos.
Indeed Rick. You can leave Crete, but it never leaves you.

Re: The new Spatial Plan for the roads, airports and ports of Crete

I hope the development is kind to Crete. To kill the 'golden goose' would be awful and irreversible. Crete is charming just the way it is, whether you prefer the north or south coast; the balance is about right. As the Americans would say, 'If it ain't broken, don't try to fix it'. Why welcome the c...

Re: Scuba near Frangocastello?

Yassou Erno, Many thanks for your quick reply. Of course, Notos Mare, I have seen the name many times before. I see they are SSI, so hope they will accept PADI licences. I will contact them now and mention your forum. Many thanks for the tip and so close to Frango too. Best wishes from Scotland to y...

Scuba near Frangocastello?

Hello Erno and Sfakia fans. This year, we missed out on our holidays to beloved Crete and ended up in Cyprus instead - long story. Cyprus did confirm at least just how much we love Crete and its people. Anyway, as a family, we did gain our PADI Open Water dive certificate. For next year, I am asking...

Re: Holidays In Crete in the 1960s

The only real difference I can see, is that the tourists dressed much better in those days!!

Re: Fishing boat - Frango/Hora Sfakion.

Hi Seth, So you want the Parthenon statues to reside in London? No doubt the Stone of Scone will end up in the clutches of the Manfields, who are again doing their best to make live difficult for the very same people who live here - touchy subject in Scone at the mo. Anyhoo, I'll call by Frango harb...

Fishing boat - Frango/Hora Sfakion.

Hello all, Now that I cannot take my metal detector to Crete, does anyone know of a fishing boat in Frango or Hora Sfakia harbour, which would take 2 people for a fishing trip for day/half day. Perhaps an existing fisherman who would charge a fair price. We arrive Frango on Sunday, staying at the wo...
