Of course we celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve on Crete together with our guests.
Everybody knows the problem we face after eating all that lovely food around the Holidays….. We make sure we stay active together with our guests and organise nice walks and hikes. This time of the year is perfect for exploring the beautiful nature of Crete. Now and then there are some rainy days, but in general the sun is shining regularly. Because of that nature comes back to life after a long hot summer; it seems like spring! In general the temperature is lovely to go out and about. Below you can see a small selection with photographs of some walks and hikes, which we did last winter.
January: walking from village to village, like Koxari and Haraso. This is a very nice walking roundtrip that you can do all year round.
