My name is Georgie and come from Essex, no jokes please!! I am married with 2 grown up daughters and my youngest daughter and I will be visiting Gouves in Sept, this will be our first visit to Crete so I am aiming to learn as much about the area as possible before we go, so I would love to hear from anyone with any tips or suggestions about Gouves, I believe it is pronounced Goo vez is that correct?

Hi Georgie,and welcome to the best Cretan website!
Your pronunciation ain t bad!What sort of things do you like to do on hol?
Whatever your interest,the members here are always ready to help,as in general we share a common love of the island and all it has to offer.
Are you happy to drive in Crete?If so you will see and discover so much more than you will ever learn from the reps.
Gouves is quite a nice place,not to far from the airport,pretty close to Hersonisos,which though rather commercialised is good for shopping,Malia on the other hand is pretty close ,but it IS full on club 18-30 land!
However,tell us your interest,and someone will be along to advise Im sure.Enjoy this beautiful island.Steve.B
