What is the climate in Chania?

  • June through September
    Normally deliver fine sunny days and moderate-to-hot temperatures. Water is warm enough for swimming and best in September. Day time peaks between 23 and 29 degrees.
  • May
    Take an average of our comments for the months before and after! It is "normally" warm and sunny, much or most of the month.
  • March, April, October and early November
    Often provide warm and very enjoyable days - it gets a lot less predictable at these edge of season months, but you'll discover an un-crowded, naturally Crete and for some the most enjoyable. We recommend a warm outdoor jacket and favourite sweater for the odd chilly day and for evenings. Day time peak temperatures range from 17 to 26 degrees.
  • December
    Often good weather, but it is winter, so warm outerwear and waterproof aids are essential - same for January and February. During these first two months of the year there "should" be some rain, but again, not every day.
  • January , February
    Winter often feels cold. Of course if you call Novosibirsk home, Crete might seem mild in the winter. The wind and sea combined on an island to produce some dramatic weather conditions at times. Day time peak temperatures range from 9 to 18 degrees, even colder in the mountains, warmer on a few days if you are lucky.

I don't speak Greek. Would be be a problem?

Thousands of people visit Greece every year without knowing any Greek at all. If you at least know English, you should be able to get along fine. But if neither English nor German is your language, don't worry, be happy. If you are just coming on a holiday you will be surprised how far a smile and sign language and pointing will get you a long way. If you are coming for business, it is most probable your host will have someone who can communicate with you in your language, if he doesn't do so himself.

Is it safe to drink the tap water at Erietta Suites?

The majority of tourists that visit Crete immediatley buy a six pack of mineral drinking water, which suggests that they have assumed that the tap water is undrinkable. The water in Crete is absolutley safe to drink and no risk to your health.

Are pets allowed in Erietta Suites?

Pets are not allowed in the hotel.
