I would appreciate if someone can please advise me about visiting Crete this May. I am thinking of flying to Chania airport.
This would be my first time visiting Greece. I would like a relaxing holiday, somewhere in a beautiful natural setting, close to a nice, quiet beach. But also with some nice cafes or places to eat. I would prefer somewhere that feels relaxing and peaceful rather than really built up and touristy. However, I would like some things going on also, nice cafes, places to eat, etc. I enjoy walking for easy short walks, so somewhere nice to walk around would be good.
Also somewhere that is suitable for single travellers would be good.
I would also consider staying a week in one place and a week in another, or a variation of that.
Chania town looks nice, and I think it may be nice to stay there for a night or two at the start or end of my trip. I would prefer to be able to stay in the place I stay at and limit the amount of really long distance travel ( ie over an hour)because I have a old injury which makes long road journeys not good. So summing up, a nice relaxing, peaceful holiday, with a good beach and some nice local walking, good cafes, easy going atmosphere.
Thank you very much
