Getting to Kalypso Cretan village from Chan's airport

Hi

I'm looking at booking a holiday in august and like the look of this place however the transfer costs are 140 GBP per person return ouch.

Is there any other option and is it a real nightmare to get to?

Flight lands at 20.50pm and departs at 21.10pm on a Wednesday.

Other options:

Get a bus to Chania then a bus to Rethymnon, taxi from Rethymnon will be a lot less.

Stay overnight in Chania (well worth it) then get a bus to Rethymnon then a bus to Plakias.

Hire a car to pick up at the airport.

Are you aware that the resort itself is a bit isolated and not in Plakias itself but hidden in the headland between Plakias and Damnoni? Not wanting to put you off, but you may want to consider car hire.

I'm staying at Kalypso at the end of July.

I've got a car hire for 4 days for 168Eu with Megalonisos Car Rentals. I pick it up in Rethymnon and drop it back to Heraklion airport. I thought that price was not bad. Kalypso Village looks great but it's in a remote location.

We are staying in three different locations over nine nights, with the "luxury" part at the end.

We will be using buses until we go to Kalypso.

Hope this is useful for you.

Thankyou all.

I think it may be just a bit too remote for us so ill probably look at something with less 'organising ' to get to!

I'm not sure if you've been to the Greek islands before.

I've been a few times and it's nice to move around from place to place.

Spending your entire holiday in one place isn't the norm, unless you are partying!

Island hopping is so popular in other areas of Greece.
