        During this winter in Heraklion and Rethymnon if you notice an unusual increase in visitors in town speaking German here is the reason.

        Six hotels in the two cities are remaining open to handle the expected 1,700 guests from the 10 scheduled flights a week from Germany and Austria to Heraklion airport. First visitors arrived under the project on October 13th.

        With Turkish investor backing, Crete businessman, Kostas Bandouvas has launched the operation in a serious effort to extend the island’s tourist industry to wintertime.  Tour arrangements include the archaeological sites that Crete is known for.

        We wish them success. It will be a boost for the economy in winter. There is extensive accommodation for longer stays also.

        Report first appeared in a local Greek newspaper.

        Compare hotel prices and find the best deal -
