Just a few minutes walk from our hotel is a lovely museum at Lychnostatis. It is the Crete open air museum and was built from scratch in the 1980's by a dedicated group of people.
It was an amazing find and we spent a happy couple of hours wandering around. The church down by the sea looks as if it has been standing for hundreds of years, as did a beautiful farmhouse. The gardens were lovely, full of fruit and herbs and grapevines that covered a pergola that gave some welcome shade.
I am getting ideas for my new garden, although unfortunately the weather in Nottingham will be very different to here.
