Tsoutsouros – Zorba’s & Triton Hotel

As you are by now well aware, we come back to Greece every few years, so, we have 'favorite' places and we also have places that we say "feels-like-home"... well Tsoutsouros is one of those places and Zorba's restaurant is our feels-like-home place to eat when we stay at the Triton Hotel. Tsoutsouros is a… Continue reading Tsoutsouros – Zorba’s & Triton Hotel

Kalypso Cretan Village Resort and Spa

One of our favorite places, and one we return to every time we come to Greece, is the small town of Plakias. It has become a bit more crowded over the past few years and prices are also continuing to rise. Unfortunately, we decided not to stay right in the town this visit. So, we… Continue reading Kalypso Cretan Village Resort and Spa

Gigilos Hotel & Restaurant – Agia Roumeli

At the very bottom of the Samaria Gorge is a quaint little town that straddles the sea shore for about 1000 meters. It is not only small and intimate but very friendly. The ferry docks at the only dock and you drive right up the center of the cobble stone street to the only main… Continue reading Gigilos Hotel & Restaurant – Agia Roumeli

To the Ferry from Paliochora to Agia Roumelli

Yes, it really was 2 ferry cruises in one day. We arrived in Chania at 6:15 am and 'booted' it to the southern tip of the Island of Crete to catch the next ferry from Paliochora to Agia Roumeli. Check out Palaichora here: https://www.google.gr/destination?q=paleochora&site=search&output=search&dest_mid=/m/04zr_l&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwje2Zbk-8fWAhXDXhQKHT8BC4gQri4IsQEwGw What a beautiful sail! We took the little car ferry from… Continue reading To the Ferry from Paliochora to Agia Roumelli

Blue Galaxy – Blue Star Ferries/Anek Lines

We took the overnight ferry from Piraeus [Athens} to Chania, Crete because the ferry from Gytheio to Kissamos was not operating. We had to drive back to Piraeus [3 1/2 hours] to catch the 9:00 pm ferry - the Blue Galaxy [operated by Blue star Ferries but we bought our tickets from Anek Lines] to… Continue reading Blue Galaxy – Blue Star Ferries/Anek Lines

Demestixas Restaurant

We were told by our hotel staff that the Taverna at the end [corner] of the street was a good place to eat. Well, they were right...it is great! Demestixas was a wonderful spot across the road from the beach with exceptional views. My husband and I decided to try it and we were not… Continue reading Demestixas Restaurant

The Akrogiali Beach Apartments

Yes, I know this is the second of that name on this trip but what better way to spend time than 'at the end of the beach' as the name means! This is the small village of Akrogiali! We arrived mid-afternoon to be greeted by our hostess, given our keys, and instructions. We were weary… Continue reading The Akrogiali Beach Apartments

The Sunset Beach Hotel

Another 'feels-like-home' family run hotel, the Sunset Beach Hotel, has been a favorite of ours since we stumbled upon it in 2012. It is one of the best run, most well kept, and beautiful hotels in Greece and just a short drive from Athens. The winding street coming into the small town of Xiropigado gives… Continue reading The Sunset Beach Hotel

To Xiropigado

Wow! it was a short but eventful drive from Loutraki to Sunset Beach Hotel in Xiropigado. We stopped to replenish our wine supplies at the beautiful little winery [Ktima Bairaktaris Winery] we found in Nemea and found a rally car convention at the winery. As driving is 'our thing' we decided to stop and discuss… Continue reading To Xiropigado

Maistrali Restrauant – Loutraki

Our favorite restaurant in Loutraki sits beside the Gulf of Corinth. The blustery wind and the high waves made an exciting dinner time show! The sunset was spectacular! I again opted for the pork souvlaki and my husband again had the eggplant with beef in a dish. Our wait staff were jovial and funny as… Continue reading Maistrali Restrauant – Loutraki
