An one-day excursion that I love

14 November. St Minas day is a festivity for the city of Haraklion accompagnied with schools and shops closing.

For us (my family and I) it's an opportunity to drive away. Remember there are always wonderful spots to discover in Crete as long as you have a car and you drive :-)

Today's destination: Ierapetra, Southern Crete
Today's weather..... no comments.... just look at the photos. Observe the beautiful blue sky with the white clouds.... 

Means of transport: Ssang Yong Kyron from family spacious car, comfortable and safe for a relaxing drive! All passengers did enjoy it.

We took the national road to Aghios Nikolaos and turned right. Picturesque landscapes on the whole way (I really enjoyed taking photos!)

Strolling up and down, relaxing, admiring the nature, breathing fresh air, looking at the bright and clear blue sky... 

 kids enjoyed a November swim.... not me though ;-) I wasn't prepared for that but next week if the weather continues like this, I will.

I am sure the above photos "speak" loudly how lucky we are to be in Crete (permanently or for a short time, doesn't matter). 

The last ones: 

 Next time you pass by Ierapetra, stop here for a delicious meal :-)

Ta leme!

Pourquoi venir en Crete en hiver ?

La Crète en hiver par l'absence des touristes...

Quoique  le risque de pluie soit bien réel, en journée on a entre 10 et 15 degrés, quelquefois 20 ou plus! Il y  a du vent et le vent peut etre assez fort (la Crète est une île résolument venteuse) mais  en général le climat est assez agréable.  Les  journées ensoleillées sont nombreuses, meme si  quelquefois elles sont entrecoupées de passages nuageux.

Let’s talk about Crete as a winter destination

Let’s talk about Crete as a winter destination.  By winter, we mean November until late March. Here are its characteristics:
Anogia, few years ago... :-)

  • Mild winters with pleasant temperatures.
  • Still many sunny days especially along the coastal line.
  • Always clean seas especially in the southern part of the island
  • Yes, it’s windy (and the wind is cold) but rarely freezing cold.
  • All major museums and archeological sites are open for the public.
  • prices for a rent a car and accommodation can be very cheap during winter
