Travel back in time in Fournes

Posted on September 4th, 2017 by Despina Sivaropoulou

As September is here and October approaches, visit Chania during perhaps the best months of the year where the hordes of tourists have left the island and a pleasant quietness prevails. 

The weather during these months are still high in the 30’s so daily beach excursions are for sure on the cards. 
During these months as the local villagers begin preparing for the harvest of grapes and olives toward the end of the year, visit the quaint little village of Fournes built against the hills on route from Chania. With a plethora of ancient ruins and local delicacies to sample it is a must day trip and wonderful walk through the quiet and long forgotten cobble streets.

Tucked in a valley of green and citrus olive groves, travel back in time to the village of Fournes to witness marvelous village architecture and island life in the mountains as it was years back.
