We usually prefer roads less travelled by, yet we were pleasantly surprised by the beauty and the quality of life here.

The southern coast of Crete is not geared towards mass tourism and there are some real gems to be discovered. We absolute loved it, and the inland too. Also, the food is perhaps the best of Greece.

Remote Karpathos is some 8 hours by boat from Iraklion. Olymbos is a stunning village to visit and Diafani a wonderful low-key and relaxed place to stay.

Beautiful Symi is firmly on the yacht circuit (not always my favourite crowd of people), but it is very beautiful. We stayed up in Chorio and absolutely loved it there.

Rodos, our final destination on this trip, must be one of the most touristy places we've ever visited, but the history of the place is still fascinating.
