On Saturday (7 August), we drove East to a town on the other side of Chania. Lake Kournas (Λίμνι Κουρνά) is Crete’s only freshwater lake, and isn’t very far from the border with the county of Rethymno (Νόμος Ρεθύμνου).

Elafonisi (Ελαφονήσι) is a beach located in the Municipality of Innachorio (Δήμος Ινναχωρίου) on the South West corner of Crete; its quite a long drive from Kamisiana, but there are a couple of good places to stop at along the way. We visited on Friday 6 August.

Car rental is available on Crete, and for 5 days during the second week of our holiday we rented one. We rent a car most holidays during the second week, and we’ll usually spend some days not going too far from the apartment, whilst on other days we’ll drive for miles.

Crete 2010: Eating Out In Kamisiana

Icon Written by Fred Hart on August 12, 2010 – 12:16

If you haven’t guessed already, Kamisiana definatley is not the village for nightlife. You’re in an area where the main income is farming, not tourism. This is a good thing – you’re in ‘Greek Greece’ not ‘English Greece’ – so if (like me) you’re someone learning Greek, you might find the locals’ English isn’t strong […]

Crete Is Just Around the Corner

Icon Written by Fred Hart on July 24, 2010 – 09:05

One of the things I did at Granny’s last week, was to show her on the computer where we’ll be staying when we go to Crete this year. The Olympic Holidays website had a useful video about the location, so I connected the computer to the big TV screen (photo above) and played it through […]
