Greetings to all,
I am going to be 70 in spring 2014 and I would like to realize a long time dream of a month in Crete in May, 2014, with various family and friends visiting.
I plan on finding a villa, and a car, and a driver.
However after a great deal of research, I am still confused as to where I should base ourselves to best see the most of the island. I understand that the roads can be interesting to drive but my children want their own vehicles.
I am a horticulturist and will be headed for wildflowers part of the time, but the rest want archeology and walking.
I suspect that some overnight excursions will be necessary wherever we chose to stay.
If I can settle on a location, I can look for a villa.
My budget is adequate.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
