Villas 'THIMONIES' are a complex of four villas, which are located at the middle of the island of Crete,the biggest island in Greece,right at the centre of the Mediterranean Sea. In Crete there are so many places of historical interest, highlights include the impressive Palace of Knossos, the Cave of Zeus, located on the slopes of Mount Ida where Rhea hid baby Zeus from Cronos, the Monastery of Arkadi just south of Rethymno, the remains of Gortyna 28 miles (45km) from Heraklion, and the Palace complex of Phaistos in the south, which was destroyed by an earthquake in the late Bronze Age and later rebuilt. The Archaeological Museum and Historical Museum of Crete in Heraklion are also worth a visit - the artefact's will astound you.
The sun-drenched sandy beaches on Crete aren't too shabby either and the surrounding scenery is breathtaking with beautiful mountains and gorges in the Samaria Gorge National Park in Chania that any hiker will simply adore.
