Modern evolution has not affected the virgin beauty of Crete and has not cut Crete off from its virgin attractiveness.The proud inhabitants of Crete continue to live in wild, glorious highlands or along the beaches, in little white-painted houses which combine a village, like plantations full of oranges and olives.With a climate that is described as "the mostsun-bathed and sinful climate of Europe", along with 6 months of cloudless summers awaiting its visitors.The full of gaps highlands are being penetrated by well expanding beaches. Here people can breathe the plentifularomatic herbs, meet kitchengardens and grapes, find ancient monuments and solitary chapels,and near them spreads of goats and mules browse together and (people can) meet trueborn Cretans,who may have not seen the sea even once in their lifetime.There isn't any areas in the island which doesn't reveal traces of a human civilization of hundreds of years and for this you can flashback the 4000 year history. So grab the opportunity as long as you stay in the island of Crete and rent a car to modulate your picnic having a rented car individually. It would be a pity if your time passes at the beach only, provided Crete with it's 260 km length is the largest greek island. Unexpectedly people meet mostly the primal Crete, ganders at the cretan habits and traditions, the natural warmth and hospitality and the villages which are alongside of the highways.You can stop driving your rented car at untouched landscapes or you can visit a tavern to rest. Little and forgotten villages,for example "Theriso" which is 15 km south of Chania, wait you to visit them,7 km awaythere is a narrow turnpike when you pass by a stream which is in a narrow canyon both sides of which many wild rocks rise.Very near of the village lies the valley and the foothills of the white hump of Chania easily appear. A beautiful snow-white area that appears as another world. These are some of the capabilities that anyone can meet in Crete but like you it cannot provide an organized picnic. We are sure that you will be satisfied and we wish you lovely, restful and entertaining holidays.
