Photo report: Winter in Sfakia, Crete

September 2002 - January 2003

winter reports from Sfakia, Crete

From end of September 2002 until end of January 2003 we have stayed in Crete, in and around Chora Sfakion.

On this page you find our updates in a photo report. The photo gallery consists of 185 images.

We have made walks around the village, have visited the nearby beaches, were guests at a traditional Cretan wedding, and set up our apartment for a prolonged stay in the very sunny and mild Cretan winter.
