Crete Lodging Options

Hi everyone....
I have done research with help of others ! for our Crete Lodging and have narrowed it down to these 6. Ii have some villas/2 bedroom places that I would love your opinion on. I went for some kind of view, 2 bedroom or bedroom and loft, ..near a village within walking distance even if 10 minutes, i know some are smaller towns

We will have a car.

Chania Town – larger town to walk to - no washing machines

1 )Boutique 66
Concerned about parking during evenings in August (parking lot is only 100 feet or so away.

2) Revelleno
– confirming if place to park - have not heard from owner yet

Smaller Villages - Apokoronas region

3) Villa Thalassea

Kalami – smaller village

4) Casa Minervos
Outside Kani - smaller village


Almyrida – smaller town
6) Aegean see

My original post with itinerarty (as I know sometimes people want whole trip and our likes and dislikes etc)

ON Naxos, no it's not jus Plaka that keeps comingi up -- Stanbr & I keep recommending that in Sept, St.George Beach(AG Giorgios) is our recommend for 1st timers, vs Plaka, (which we like to visit by bus) Reasons include: SO Much to explore in town for 1st time visitors... also Sept the outer beaches r closing down a bit, of evenings. But if u insist, Stanbr's go-to in Plaka is 3 brothers hotel. my work here is done.

HeyJanet..this is all about Crete places I haven't picked out not Naxos :-) Sorry I see where I had that left over from putting my whole trip together. I will remove the part about naxos from this trip.
(but I do need naxos too, but not ready on that one yet)
