After a long -and quite harsh- winter, summer is finally here to stay. No doubt your spirits are considerably lifted in view of the upcoming holidays. Downside is that your holidays are still far away, and you’re currently stuck in the big city. Good news is that it is actually very easy to do yourself a great favor and treat yourself, and yours, to a sneaky vacation preview-even for as little as a long weekend.
The Chania region, and its beautiful beach resort, Platanias, is always a great place to visit, but especially so at this time of the year. Nature is at its best, the weather is sunny and mild, waters are cool and crystal clear, food and drinks are as always copious and delightful, the hordes of tourists are absent still, and the locals, not yet tired and frustrated from the season, are at their most jovial and kind. Plus there are always the low cost carriers, which indeed will carry you here for a symbolic, low cost.
