I’ve always wanted to visit Crete ever since I was a little girl. I often used to hear my aunts speak of this beautiful island and apparently my grandfather’s mother was Greek and she was from there …she lived somewhere in the mountainous areas where the pine trees grow along side each other and they are famous for their organic honey and olive oil. 

Well this summer we decided to go on a family holiday and take our little one who is now two years old along with us. After lots of research and looking at islands we decided that Crete was the right choice for us. The family friendly beaches and pleasant weather made it perfect for an early September trip. We chose the Kiani Hotel ( family hotel) that has lots of fun for toddlers and youngsters ( kids play area, disco, entertainment) and also has an award winning beach! – check it out!You can also rent a car and drive to Elafonissi  beach – A tropical white sand beach that is wonderful for kids that love to walk around in shallow waters. You may also want to visit Chania, the second largest city in Crete.  35 mins away by car.  Check out the old port area… It’s so beautiful at night with lots to offer from bars and cafes to restaurants that serve a variety of fresh sea food that is cooked to perfection! Yum 🙂 great service and smiley faces make the experience a memorable one. Thank you Crete it was a pleasure! Xx
Restaurants to visit:

In Kalyves – Provlita, friendly service and fresh sea food!  Also Kritiko, the monk fish and grilled calamari are to die for! Lovely couple running the restaurant. We were even offered cake and ice cream with Raki shots on the house.
