It's not the number of breaths you take, it's the moments that take your breath away.

Sounds like a good deal... if you don't mind, you might send the details to me, since I have some youngsters coming down this summer and they would like to hire a car. I didn't really want to get into this part of it, but maybe I could give them some directions....

also a great welcome to this site and congratulations to your silver wedding in advance.
I think, it's a great idea to celebrate this at crete...
Where will your flight go??? Chania or Iraklion??? And when do you want to go to crete? June? July? This year? Next year? It would be easier to give you an advice, if we know a little bit more...
Do you and your family like more the culture, the nature or only enjoying the crete way of life???
A villa near the sea??? Or nearby the mountains???
Good food and good wines you'll find everywhere at crete... So - tell us al little bit more

We'd usually like to go on holiday as independent as possible. I think I mentioned in my original post that a villa near to the sea would be nice. I don't know what airport we would be flying into as we've never been before - hence the query! As I think I also mentioned that it would be next year probably around April/May time. I don't know anything about the Crete way of life, but would like to explore and hopefully avoid anything too touristy, but as we have older kids we have to think of them as well - so something to keep them amused would be helpful.
Santo and Pam - I will e-mail you personally for the details of car hire, villas etc. many thanks for your offer of help in this.
