As you climb the steps to enter the property, you will find a fine view of the town that is boarded by the northern seafront. Here, you can enjoy your evening meals and drinks on the terrace space that has a table and seating.

Entering through the front door will lead you into a cosy and stylish living area, which is furnished with a flat screen television and ample seating for you and your guests. The kitchen area and six-person dining area is next to this room. The kitchenette is simply equipped, but has everything you need to prepare generous meals for the party. The first bedroom can be found on the ground floor and has two single beds, as well as patio doors leading onto a balcony.

The first floor has two double bedrooms with king sized beds, air conditioning and access to balconies overlooking the magnificent landscape of Rethymno. There are two communal bathrooms, both with bath tubs and showers, to be found on either floor.

The swimming pool area is largely fenced off and has endearing vines growing over the top of the trellis, to ensure total privacy. A small dining area is protected by a parasol, so you and your family can be protected from the sun during those swimming breaks.

Rethymno is a town that holds huge cultural significance to the island of Crete, with records citing its importance to as early as the Neolithic age. During the Byzantine and Venetian eras, Rethymno’s primary use was as a harbour and today architecture from these periods is ever-present. For those who prefer more modern history, a visit to Moni Arkadiou won’t disappoint, as it holds importance to the island’s more recent history.

Vventure into the Old Town, or Palia Poli as its known by the locals, and marvel in the exhibition of venetian arches & cobbled streets with Orthodox and Catholic churches scattered amongst local amenities. The Venetian Harbour is a short distance from here and nowadays is considered a hub for small cafes and tavernas and has a particularly appealing sight at dusk.

A trip into the mountains will give you a fantastic perspective of the island. From here you’ll be able to see Mount Ida, the birthing ground of Zeus. Exploring the highlands has its perks, as you are bound to discover many hidden gems. Taverna Karavostasi is considered to be one of the best restaurants in the region, with local wines and produce incorporated into daily menus, it’s a must.

Rethymno is an ideal destination for families, as it offers more than its history. Whilst holidaying in this region; have fun scuba diving, taking boat journeys, hiking, going on 4x4 adventures and visiting the numerous aqua parks.
