Veláni Country Hotel - Crete

Sun and Riding

5 star rating   8 September 2019

Kate who has been on 10 In The Saddle rides. A lovely place to be | Our riding was limited (our fault entirely!) but undoubtedly it would have lived up to expectations as was confirmed by the other riders who were very much enjoying themselves and one of these had returned to ride at Velani many times.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The rooms have a kettle (and fridge) so you may want to take a supply of tea/coffee. We were in the Panorama Room, the furthest outpost from the restaurant, so it was good to have this facility.
