Hallo, wir fliegen in zwei Wochen nach Kreta, und werden wieder in Matala unseren Urlaub verbringen. Wir verbringen nun schon zum dritten mal unseren Urlaub in Matala und sind immer wieder beeindruckt von der schönen Landschaft und den einsamen Buchten die man zum Baden einladen. Viele Grüße Beate und Werner
