Just as we believed that nothing could be more beautiful than Venice, came along Crete,
the biggest island of Greece and left us starry-sea-eyed.
Cutting across the Aegean sea, the first glimpse of the island got us jumpy.
Running out of the airport our minds were clouded with a sea of thoughts, imagining a poetic day ahead.
Almyrida studios was half an hour away but the taxi got there sooner than expected.
A chatty woman made us feel at home.
We parked our bags and were off to the frontyard of the hotel.
Only to sprint on the sand and date the Aegean sea all day long.
By the time the mini shoot in Crete culminated, the whiff of fresh fish nearby distracted us.
Calamari, the sun and beer became golden delights.
We could live like this forever.
Carried away every second.
Maybe to an extent where we imagined a mermaid as green as the ocean galloping on a dolphin.
And the evening just hanged out with our thoughts. Untill it was time for dinner.
…and the famous Creat-ean house wine.
Next day the sound of waves woke us & milk and cakes for breakfast waited.
And a quick swim made the morning quintessential.
Our stay was brilliant.
Almyrida Studios is a luxury property with a little kitchenette, free breakfast and warm hospitality. There are three properties belonging to the same group within 100 meters of this one. We suggest stay here for the best view.
You can still use the infinity pool of the next property and enjoy the sunset from their rooftop bar.
