I lost my husband & travel companion of 52 years last year and wondered if there is anyone living near Bridport who is in a similar position and who would like to meet up and discuss travel options. I am a fit 74 year old(my hearing is my only issue) I am very well travelled and well read. I don't "do" cruises or large resorts.
In that case, Google the Mistral Hotel in Maleme, Crete. It's a wonderful hotel for single people only. My first proper holiday after I was widowed, where I learned to smile, laugh, and be "me" again. The place is spotless, food wonderful, you can go on trips every day, or lounge by the pool reading a book. I think I've been 8 times now. Sometimes over 80% of the guests are "returners" which tells you everything you need to know. Look at the Facebook page if you are still not sure.
