Maybe the north-west coast though.

We usually go to Makrigialos in May for a few weeks. Many friends there that we have met over the last 8 or 9 years. Next year is less certain due to the BA sale to Easy Jet, although we will probably still end up going.

Please don't take this as a criticism, because it isn't meant that way, but don't you get bored going to the same place year after year? or do you perhaps use it as abase while you explore the region?

We haven't just been to the sout east, once upon a time, before our dughter, we had two hols a year and so we have been to several other Greek Islands and the mainland, but we fell for Makrigialos! Our daughter loves it too. I can't say I get bored, we have done lots of the touristy trips so we generally just go to unwind and even though it is a little bit touristy in places it's not in your face like other spots on the island.

I don't get to holiday very often so when I do, I like to see everything and visit lots of new places. I guess I'm not very good at just relaxing.
Welcome to the forum, by the way.

Having said all that we are booked to visit the Peleponnese next summer (just for a change) it will be our first time on mainland Greece. I have no doubt that we will return to Crete if not next autumn, then in 2009.
Love from Mike & Jane

We are hopefully moving over in November next year so our Easter trip will be our last holiday for quite a while!

We loved Mystras too, I bet it's not changed too much as it's hardly on the tourist trail and is quite difficult to reach. I remember feeling quite queasy on the journey from Kalamata. I also remember a superb taverna run by a charmimg english couple whose food was probably the best I've had anywhere. Can't remember the name unfortunately. The place was always packed and the lady was front of house and I think John was the cook, who took delight in showing us round the kitchen. I wonder if they are still there?

Almost spent a whole day walking amongst the ruins of this famous late Byzanthine ghost town. It was founded in 1249 by Guillamume II de Villehardouin by means of building a fortress on top of the hillside "Taÿgetos".
Here's a pic of it.
BTW M, did you mean Spurius by using "sp" ? If so you are way out of your league

wasn't sure about Elefteria either as I've only ever seen it in Greek. It's a beautiful name but somewhat overused unfortunately.
