Crete for 2 weeks in May

Jump to last reply

We're arriving at Heraklion airport on May 4 and driving a rental car direct to Ayios Nikolous to do Easter. After a couple of days we plan to drive for 2 weeks seeing the worthwhile sights hopefully around the whole island without being too rushed. Seems we can get to Matala ok in a day , then make our way to Chora Sfakion and ferry hopefully with the car to Paliochora. We're not interested in the Samaria Gorge hike - too strenuous - and hope to make our way up to Chania at a leisurely rate and make our way along the North - via Rethymon and back to Heraklion for Knossos etc. before ferrying to Naxos.
Like ruins,small towns and ports, tavernas, pensions, traditional life....
Not resorts,big cities, lying on beaches in regimented rows..
Can someone help with route suggestions and also simple accom. and eating ideas?
