Last month my partner Steve took lots of delightful photos when we were on holiday in Crete, which are just too good not to share. From seascapes to townhouses, with some interesting doors, and a sample of graffiti, these are a few of my favourite images which encapsulate this beautiful island.
I loved this beautiful town house in Chania with it’s vibrant colours

The Church of St. Panteleimon at Nopigia looked like it was made of icing sugar!
The church of Saint Panteleimon at Nopigia is a cruciform church of the 14-15th century and is one of the largest pilgrimages in the area of Kissamos.
Kournas Lake is the only freshwater lake in Crete, located in the Apokoronas region of Chania.
We stayed in a rented villa in the traditional village of Vamos which lies between Chania and Rethymnon, in the beautiful foothills of the White Mountains (Lefka Ori) just 7 km from the Cretan sea. The village is located at an altitude of approximately 300m and situated in the greenest prefecture of Chania, Apokoronas.
We stayed at ‘The Old Bakery’ in Vamos
