Where Zeus used to bathe

Crete | Crete is the most popular holiday destination for those people who want to spend their holiday in Greece. Due to the diverse countryside the biggest island in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea provides the holiday maker with many alternatives and options. Regardless whether you are seeking a holiday on the beach (more than 1000 kilometers of coastline), want to undertake a hiking tour to the mystic places related to the Greek Gods or just would like to take a stroll through one of the many attractive towns every holidaymaker will find this island an absolute paradise. Crete also welcomes families with children with open arms. The beaches offer the smallest family members a lot of space to play and explore. Those interested in exploring the sea world further down will find a selection of scuba diving schools where you can make your diving license. A popular daytrip is the under nature conservation protected Palm Beach of Vai which can be found on the east side of the island. It is referred to as the Caribbean beach of Europe as its characteristics are a fine white sandy beach surrounded by old palm trees. One of the most beautiful and longest beaches Crete offers can be found in Rethymnon. This is a tourist town with many fish taverns in a Venetian port and numerous small souvenir shops.
One of the main attractions of Crete is the Samaria Gorge on the south side of the island which is the longest in Europe. Those who dare may take a hike along the cliffs. In the Diktaean Cave, that is one of 3000 mountain caves to be found on Crete, you can experience the starting point of Greek Mythology. A legend has it that Zeus was born and raised in the cave of Psycho which is located in Lasithi in Eastern Greece not far away from Heraklion. Another popular tourist attraction is the palace of Knosso which is one of the most well known archeological excavation sites in the world.
When paying a visit to the town of Heraklion you must plan to visit the archaeological museum as it is regarded as one of the most spectacular of its kind with unique artifacts. To round off a lovely day you should also plan to look up one of the many taverns. Here you can take in and be enchanted by the Greek folklore with Mediterranean flair until late into the night.

    “A convenient place as a base for many trips. Rethymnon is very cozy. Supermarket nearby for groceries. You can enjoy dining in the old town or the port.”

    “By Rethymno itself we are only down because we did not want a city bustle, but the nearest small resort near the house, like when one goes down from the highway enough also for cozy strolling and eating out. Generally, this part of the island is beautiful, the streets perfectly fine, all the people super friendly, even, the 70-year-old mini-market seller in the next village a few words of English. Only the traffic signs even on the highway, are partly overgrown, sometimes very small or smeared with paint so that it is sometimes hard to decipher the Cyrillic script quickly anyway. Sometimes the signs are also in the Latin alphabet.”

beautiful places in Greece. Rethymno awaits you with clear blue seas, with endless beaches, caves, gorges and unique flora and fauna.
Rethymno is the homeland of Zeus, the god of Hospitality. People live here amidst nature and emotions, outside the code of behavior found in big cities. No matter where you go, be it even to the most isolated village, our people will open their doors to you to welcome with a "tsikoudia" and befriend you. The great number of visitors who return repeatedly confirms the words of the poet: ”Rethymno is not a place where you go to, but a place where you return.”

Getting around
The holiday unit is located at the same distance from both the airports of Heraklion & Chania - about 75 km and 500m to the port of Rethymno.
There is a bus stop 50m away from the house that can take you to the city, but we strongly recommend our guests to rent a bicycle or the duration of your stay. All sidewalks in Rethymno have been rebuilt the past 5 years and have separate bicycle paths. This is an excellent opportunity to enjoy and discover the city in a sportive manner.
For those who want to discover the entire island renting a car is not a hinder from a financial point of view. After your reservation I can help you with the addresses of local rent a car companies.
