Don’t forget that it’s the Pigi car boot sale this sundayfeb 4th. Weather is supposed to be good and there are a few new sellers hoping to come and sell off every thing before returning to the UK. Gate opens at 08.30 and it finishs around 12 ish.
The turn you need is Platanes, maybe also signed for Arkadi (monastery). It’s a way before Rethymno town. Do you want Google Earth ref?
Anyway, if you get the Platanes turnoff, go down hill, turn left then left again immediately. Up the road, through Tsesmes and Adele villages. In Pigi turn down into the village and continue through past the square – you’ll probably see loads of cars parked by the road side but if not, the old football field is on the right then there’s a warehouse on the left and it’s held in their grounds. Are you a seller? If so you need to be very early. If you want to phone me for more details etc. let me know
Follow the National Highway (signposted Rethymnon), to Stavromenos. Just after you will see a sign post on the left, ‘Old Road 400mts’, after about that distance turn off and at the bottom of the incline, bear left on the old road. Continue along straight ahead, past the Garden Centre and El Greco Hotel (on the right), cross the bridge, in about 500mts turn left at the Go Cart Track. Follow the road straight ahead, up the hill into Pigi Village.
