Hi there

Well, I guess he's not going to be running around or falling in the pool!! I guess you mean whether the place would have a cot for him to sleep in? Most apartments usually have stuff like a cot and high chair somewhere hanging around and if you check out local shops, especially down in Hersonissos, you'll find plenty of places selling all sorts of baby stuff.

You don't say when you are going, but bear in mind that summer in Crete gets VERY hot, nothing unusual for days to hit 35-40c or even hotter. Will your son cope with that?

It depends about him. We were two years ago in Santorini. And it was the hottest summer. There was 45C and that under the roof. We did have neighbors who's wife was waiting the baby for last week and she was 100% ok. No problem with her. But you have to be careful that he wont get sunburned. It is the biggest risk i there. But if you have good suncreme, then it is not very bad. Have a nice vacation!!!

Contact the apartments to make sure a cot is available, you may have to take your own cot sheets.

Keep a sunshade over his buggy and a big T-shirt on him.

Cretans adore children and will try to spoil him rotten. There's no problem taking children to any of the restaurants, even late at night. He'll probably sleep when he's tired anyway.

Piskopiano is a lovely village and not busy like Hersonosis down the hill. Have a lovely holiday.
