What would be the better option for a 2 week stay in Crete . . . Chania or Rethimno? My research so far says both towns would be very nice, but since Chania has an airport it would be easier to fly there and base my time in Crete there and do day trips to surrounding areas, including Rethimno. Both towns have Old Town areas which is what we travel to Greece for. Not looking for anything fancy or over-the-top just good, basic accommodations in a low-key area with enough open to keep us happy. Probably will travel there next Oct., but May is another option.
