I missed last year in Paleochora, but came back this summer - on at last minute decision. Had on night in Hania - stayed at Irene Hotel / pension right next to the bus station, 30 Euro.
Its many years since I had the bus to Paleochoira - often I rented car from Notos to drive from the airport. But very nice to go by bus - and very cheap (7,5 Euro)
Was welcomed by my college Hans and Jette at the bus station in paleochora. This time my favorite pension ( Dream Rooms / Maria Bubalis) was full, so I had for once to find a new hotel. Had one night at Orientel Bay - but missed my previous view of the harbour and the blue sea. So next dayu I changed to Skopios Hotel - just next to the very lovely restaurant Kristos at the harbour front. Rent 35 Euro incl. breakfast - which I only had once, and kept to the old habit of having breakfast at the café on the corner by the small stony beach.
Omelet with bacon, fresh juice and coffee 7 Euro ! It just don't get any better then this !!
rented af very good bike for the whole week ( 5 Euros a day) and drove to Anidri beach almost every day.
