This has been our overall favourite place for vanlife. After staying in the appartment for 3 or 4 days – escaping some cold or windy days – we are longing for the freedom and nature experience of vanlife. Somehow, the simplicity of everything and the small space you live in is made up by the…
The weather got sunny again and we went back to Elafonisi for a couple of days. This morning, we made a small hike to Kedrodasos Beach which is an hour walking distance. What a wonderful place! There is no infrastructure – no roads, tavernas, nothing, just pure nature. A small cedar wood just next to…
Just expereinced these “halcyon days” while traveling on the west coast, down from Chania (Χανιά) to Paliochora (Παλιόχωρα).
For the past two weeks, including the Christmas holidays and new year’s Eve, we had rented a little house at Triopetra at the south coast. After a week or so we started to miss the vanlife – despite the hot showers, fully equipped kitchen and reasonably sized bed which the house featured.

Bacause of the lockdown situation, we decided to continue in the southern parts of Crete, away from cities. Most places down here are very, very quiet, even in summer season, but now we are mostly on our own.
Heading further east along the south coast of Crete, we found Xerokampos, a wide-spread village with several nice beaches, only very few hotels and now, in winter time, remarkably calm. Coming down the street from the mountians features spectacural views into the bay area.
Yesterday we found an amazing place. It features a nice lonely spot for our van under a tree, a fantastic seaview, a little sandy bay just for us (we still go swimming daily), and a small village in walking distance for shopping.
Travelling by Van and outside of the main season allows us to visit wonderful, rural beaches and places and have them for ourselves. Amazing trips and places.
Another ferry night and we arrived on Crete. The first week we spent on “Como Beach”, right in the South, where we found a nice place for our van, just in front of the sea, and enjoyed just relaxing on the beach, the local Tavernas, and wonderful sunsets.
