Most of us stay at the Orthodox Academy of Crete. Here are their rules:
- Cigarettes and alcohol are strictly banned on their grounds.
- No music may be listened to. This includes on ear phones. Only exception is Byzantine music.
- No use of electronic devices after sundown.
- Only baptized Greek Orthodox may rent rooms.
Just kidding, its really quite relaxed Just behave yourself like a good Java programmer should and we will all have a fantastic time.
The Academys rooms are quite OK to sleep in. Facilities for kids are limited. This is an academy for serious learning after all. But there is the sea across the road to play and swim in. There are also plenty of great hotels close by.
Please note that the OAC has a large conference finishing on the 31st July. You will thus only be able to check in the afternoon of the 31st. Also, most of us will be checking out on the 5th of August and head over to the Akrotiri, where some of will probably stay at Giorgis Blue Apartments.
