what to take on vacation to Crete?

Holiday house VILLA LIMANI recommends to take these items on your vacation to Crete:

How much money to take on vacation to Crete for a week ?

  • Take care because in many restaurants and bars you cannot pay with card. There are sufficient cash machines but withdrawal cost 3€ each time and sometimes they are empty or limited cash withdrawal available. For one week I would advice to bring between 500 and 1000€ cash excluding the cost of a rental car.


  • ID card, take also a copy or scan in case of loss
  • Drivers license(in case you rent a vehicle)
  • Keys and remote control of your home 
  • Decoder of your banks ; KBC ING BNPparisbasFORTIS or others

What medication to take on vacation to Greece? 

  • At villa Limani there is an extended "first aid kit" with basic medication at our guests disposal. But don't forget to take specific personal medication.
  • Most of the medication is cheap in Greece and available without prescription in the farmacies (also in VAMOS). for example for diaria ERSEFURYL is very powerful and available in Greece.
  • Ibiprofen, Dafalgan, Stomage-protection 
  • Although there are little number of musqitos, there could be some at sunset when there is little wind. Medication for bites is available in the villa but not for prevention.
