Good destinations for 1-2 days for a 4-sector run?

I've been lucky enough to be Aegean Gold / Star Gold for 3 years. This is great as I fly quite a bit on SAS and LH through the year. First was comp'ed then downgraded then I made it back the long mileage way (no A3 sectors.) Last year I re-qualified by doing a 1 night stay in Kos from BRU as I was a few miles short of the 24k. It's a long time since I was in greece and I really loved it for a short trip and am thinking to proactively book a 1-2 night stay this year as a jolly/sector-run.

Any recommendations for a short break destinations that are a connection onward from ATH on OA or A3, not crazy expensive and not too much hassle to/from the airport?

I was thinking Chania maybe? Will be a solo-traveller for the sector run, I like nice food, wine and maybe a few drinks in a bar after.

KGS - Kos - 30 taxi to Kardemena / hotels about 60
CHQ - Chania - 30 to Chania town / hotels around 60
