Elounda might be just 23 miles from party-tastic Malia, but it feels like it's worlds away. Peaceful, beautiful, and apparently very windy, Elounda is a small fishing town on the Northern coast of Crete. Frequently visited by the likes of Lady Gaga and Leo DiCaprio, Elounda does private and quiet very well - much better than luxe favourites, Santorini and Mykonos.

I am going away to Mayrhofen in the Ziller Valley in Austria next week with a group of around 10 friends. I lived and ski guided there for a winter (and then summer) season. If this were a French resort, would I not be allowed to show my friends around? Would I have to shell out for a guide to show me around an area I already know and want to show my friends?
