Kouremenos Beach, near Palaikastro, East Crete, Greece,  Windsurfing

14 September 2017  -  Updated
The wind is back ! After strong wind continuing through August into September, there were a few days without wind (good to enjoy other activities).  It's been feeling hot at around 30c.
It's been a very good summer in Kouremenos with great windsurfing. The olives are growing well and there look to be more than last year !

Tired of UK weather and want some sunshine ?  September/early October is a great time for a holiday, with direct flights continuing well into October.
 Our friends Nikos & Katerina extended one of their rental apartments to make it 2 bedrooms : ideal for families.  The Rousolakos apartments were recently refurbished too. Car hire is easy to arrange for arrival in Heraklion with MCar / Kafetzakis who have excellent cars, fully insured, very good prices and perfect service.  Let us know if we can help.

Some Extra Virgin Olive Oil is still available in UK, but not much left now until next year !!
Use "Contact Us" to order, or for more information.
- click on OLIVE OIL tab to see the whole process !
This is very high quality oil, made only from local olives and cold-pressed solely by mechanical means.  The acidity is very low : a measure of olive oil quality. The oil from our region won several awards

   is a VERY useful website for visitors to Crete. Carol is British and married to a Cretan, living in Crete for many years. She shares her huge knowledge and experience, very valuable for visitors and would-be residents.  Her book Living In Crete is also highly recommended.
