Accomodation & weather

Hi everyone,

My partner and I really like the look of Koutouloufari but have no idea where to stay.

Would anyone be able to recommend some places please? We would be looking at self catering to make the most of the bars and restaurants.

Our trip will be around May 20th so in people's experiences does the weather on Crete tend to be warm enough to sunbathe by then? and what about the evenings does it cool down a lot.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Steve.

Hi Spike and welcome to the forum

I cant give you any recommendations regarding accommodation in Koutouloufari as I have never stayed here, but I can help with the weather.

Yes it will be hot enough to sun bathe by the middle of May, and the sea will be starting to warm up too - I would take a light jacket or cardi for the evenings as it can still be a bit chilly especially if you are sitting near to the sea.

Hi Steve. As said yes it will be sunbathing weather and can get a little cool at night but only a sweater/cardi needed. Accommodation wise try the Sunrise apartments, we go every May and arrive there on May 13th this year. Basic apartments but stunning views of Hersonnissos and the sea beyond. Ran by a very friendly family who can't do enough for you, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Hi Spike_360. We also stay at the Sunrise Apartments but the village is blessed with a number of others that get good reviews on TA. To name a few - Astra are right in the centre of the village. Marni is next door to Sunrise and Adonis a little further out. None of these are more than 400 yards from the village itself. Friends of ours got a good deal with Thomsons for Galaxy Villas. These are also close to Sunrise and (from the outside at least) looks a bit "posher"!! Hope this helps.

I'd definitely recommend Asterias Village, right between the two villages and about a 20 minute walk from both Hersonissos and Old Hersonissos.

Thank you everyone for taking the time to reply.

You've all given me some excellent suggestions of where to stay.

Having a quick look they all look very nice with some superb customer reviews.

I usually book with Olympic Holidays and they have some of your suggestions so I have some decisions to make :-)
