Crete Greece

wagtailgirls_annakern_crete03One week on the Greek island, Crete! We stayed at the newly opened Casa Cook in Chania, now known by Domes Zeen Chania. Pure luxury! Beautifully designed. Comfortable, fantastic breakfast buffet and lunch salads. Close to a quiet beach with clean and clear water. wagtailgirls_annakern_crete_51A0737wagtailgirls_annakern_crete07wagtailgirls_annakern_crete_51A0578wagtailgirls_annakern_crete14wagtailgirls_annakern_crete_51A2817wagtailgirls_annakern_crete_51A2782wagtailgirls_annakern_crete06wagtailgirls_annakern_crete01wagtailgirls_annakern_crete_51A0543wagtailgirls_annakern_crete_51A0715wagtailgirls_annakern_crete15wagtailgirls_annakern_crete_51A0267wagtailgirls_annakern_crete02wagtailgirls_annakern_crete20wagtailgirls_annakern_crete04wagtailgirls_annakern_crete_51A9915wagtailgirls_annakern_crete05We stayed in the basic double room with a large terrace.
