Chania... an unforgettable experience!

A trip to Crete out of season, during the winter months, is the right time to enjoy the quiet nature and explore uncrowded places on the island. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you can enjoy Cretan cuisine, traditional villages and the calm that reigns throughout the island. In addition, most of the archaeological sites and museums remain open during the winter.

Our largest island is covered in sunshine even during the winter months. Be prepared for intense winds and rain, but in general Crete is blessed with a Mediterranean climate. Most days you can enjoy the island's bright light, with daytime temperatures exceeding 22 degrees Celsius. In the evening, the Raki (traditional alcoholic drink) and the fireplace can warm you up!
