# Dining Out

The Apokoronas area of north west Crete is well known for its fine eateries. Every village has a favourite taverna or restaurant favoured by the Greeks, expats or returning tourists. All the beaches are lined with some of the finest tavernas found in the Mediterranean. This is just a sample that we know are good but you can explore and find new eating places and if they are good, let us know.

# Shopping

Shopping in Chania and Rethymno is a great experience as both places offer shops selling the highest quality goods. We are very proud of our shops in these cities and the helpful and courteous manner of the Greek people.
