We will have a car and are focusing on western Crete and have the below itinerary...
--3 nights Chania Villa Andromeda -- Day trip Samaria Gorge
--3 nights Milia Mountain retreat -- Day trip Elafonisi Beach
--1 night Chania for 6am departure
Highest on our list are Samaria, Elafonisi Beach and lots of Cretan food. We don't like to move around too much, but do want a full experience. With our current plans, I don't think we have time to visit Rethymnon or Heraklion.
My main questions...
Are we limiting ourselves with our current itinerary in terms of variety?
Are we missing any other must see areas, like Rethymnon or the southern coast?
Any advice is appreciated.
