Heraklion airport car hire

I arrived at Heraklion airport February 2nd 2015. My intention was to visit the island of Crete, the mountainous part mostly. I was confident my trip will excite my wife and started this trip confident and sure everything would go well, as it happened!

I collected my suitcases from the buggage claim area of Kazantzakis airport of Crete and came out to the magnificent sunshine terain of the airport. I stayed some minutes under the sun until i get used to the 20 degrees temperature of the winter Crete.

A car rental agency was waiting for me at the arrivals exit, just in front of the main exit, http://www.athenscars-Crete.gr . my choise of car was a Fiat sedici 4x4. After the quick paperwork i started the engine of my car and drove in the high way towards Anogeia village. Axos village is just close the this and is my destination point.

Axos village is the most interesting place of mountainous area Idi. Axos is the place of Ancient Axos, well known from the Minoan crete. It;s direction was interesting with may curves and always on hill driving. the 4x4 diesel car i hired from Crete car hire was ideal to climb on these hills. I took the chance to photo shooting many nice sightseeing views of the mountain, its unique trees and nature sights.

I stopped at the monastery of Zoniana and drunk fresh running water by the village church. The children of the village shown very reactive and were always checking my vehicle by running around, just like they never saw one like this before.

The direction to Axos was on schedule, i started driving again till i arrive to it. Axos is a famous place, a place that borned Krites, ancient Cretan people, with rich ruins of Minoan civilization. It is good to say the people of Axos welcomed me and asked to offer a glass of water and a cake in their houses. I spent more than 3hours up to the ruins of the village and the surroundings of it. I made my trip pleasant.

The village has a small hotel, where i spent the night with my wife, in a stone made old house.  

this is the beginning of my trip! I had a great time all the rest days i stayed on the island! i will email you neare the time the rest Information!
