Independent travellers, who may have ignored Greece in recent years because of the arrival of holiday louts from the UK and elsewhere, might be attracted by a new specialist operator called Pure Crete. Its programme offers selected village houses and farms in Megala Chorafia, in the north-west of Crete. This accommodation is owned by the local villagers and Geraint Davies, Pure Crete founder, claims: “The whole community is behind the project and we are all determined to ensure that the traditional atmosphere continues. You certainly won’t find any lager louts in or around Megala Chorafia.”
