Crete’s climate conditions offer weather to suit every taste. From January to March snow covers the mountaintops, from April to May you will find the warm spring weather which brings out the wild flowers which appear everywhere in particular in the mountains and gorges. June is comfortably warm with peaking hot days. July and August give blazing sunshine which dries out Crete’s land. Crete slowly starts to cool down in September and October bringing in the famous light winds that fan the island. The wet season in Crete comes around November time signalling the beginning of the olive harvest. The land will also soak up the pure rainfall to fill the reserves ready for the next year.
