If you feel the need to leave your Pendamodi holiday rental villa behind for the day and explore the island then it is recommended that you make a plan to stop at the small village of Paleokastro on the eastern side of Crete. Paleokastro used to be a very important centre of trade during Minoan times but is now largely unaffected by tourism. The small village has a wonderful beach but most visitors decide to visit it for the remains of a Venetian fortress located on a hill on the outskirts which offers fantastic views. As well as the fortress, Paleokastro has some wonderful buildings including a beautifully decorated chapel and a small but informative cultural centre.
