Things to do

Archaeological Museum of Rethymno:

Visit the Archaeological Museum of Rethymno, operated by the National Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities Conservancy. This museum is organized by excavation site, in chronological order, ranging from the Neolithic to the Roman period. The museum is situated in the Fortezza, within the pentagon-shaped building near the main entrance.

Historical and Folklore Museum of Rethymno:

The Historical and Folklore Museum of Rethymno includes handcrafted works like rugs, hand-sewn lace, and jewellery. The pieces reflect a way of life that predates technology. The museum is located west of Arkadiou and south of Konnou Paleogou.

Museum of Sea Life at Rethymno:

The Museum of Sea Life shows one of Greece's most important collections of fish, molluscs, and sponges native to the area. The museum is located on Arabatzoglou Street in the old part of town. The building is a former abbey.

Fortezza of Rethymno:

The Fortezza of Rethymno is one of the most well-preserved castles in Crete and houses a well-known Wine Festival every July. This impressive fortress is located on one of the headlands above the city, where it was incredibly useful as a military presence. Once inside, the Ibrahim Han Mosque is an absolute must-see.

Nerandzes Mosque:

The Nerandzes Mosque forms an impressive silhouette that has long been a part of the Rethymno skyline. The 17th-century building boasts a fantastic view of the entire city from the turret. Be sure to visit the minaret at the top of the mosque.

Rimondi Fountain:

Believed to have been built in 1588, the current Rimondi fountain is actually a replacement of the original. This fountain, among many others, has provided potable drinking water to residents during water shortages since the 17th century. The fountain's decorative pieces also double as practical parts of the fountain.

Weather in Rethymno

Greece's climate is Mediterranean in nature, and provides ideal holiday weather year-round, with summer temperatures reaching the mid-30s and winters in the 10-15°C range. This makes for ideally hot summer days and an extremely mild winter. Plan for copious sunshine in the summer and rainy weather in the winter. Though Rethymno lies on the Aegean Sea, the heat is dry rather than humid.

Travel to Rethymno

Travel to Rethymno is simple and straightforward. Simply fly into either Heraklion International Airport (HER) or Chania International Airport (CHQ), both located on the island of Crete. Aegean ferries run on a regular schedule, and more often during the highest tourist season. Both car-carrying ferries and catamarans run between the Cyclades Islands, Crete, and mainland Greece daily.

The owner Ms Anastasia was very nice and almost every day we received something delicious that she prepared for us! Ideal for family with children. Thank you so much Ms. Anastasia for giving us a nice holiday.

The pool was the best part and looked amazing when the night lights turned on! I stayed here two weeks with my family including my young cousins. The house proved to be very kid friendly and fun. The outdoor seating and dining area made for many pleasant meals by the pool with quiet music on. The AC in most rooms was extremely nice as I'm not used to hot weather - being from the UK. Also, the people living next door were very pleasant. The brought us freshly picked fruit, homemade meals and delicious treats. Overall the house has great living facilities. Two equipped kitchens that were very easy to work and functioning bathrooms and washing rooms. The views from the balconies were amazing and made the experience even more enjoyable. I will never forget this holiday or this villa. It was perfect.

                                                                                                      I stayed with a friend at Villa Kivotos for a week in October. We had a perfect time and would have liked to have stayed longer but unfortunately we were a late booking and the villa was already booked by other lucky people. The villa is situated in the hills above Rethymnon and has great views from all levels. The villa itself is modern, spotlessly clean and had every amenity we could have wished for. We didn't cook while we were there but could have if we'd wanted to as it was fully equipped with everything needed. We loved the sliding doors which opened up the villa to the patio outside. I also liked the screens which meant we weren't bothered by flies, mosquitoes etc, although there probably weren't many around by then. It is also very suitable for people with mobility issues as the bathroom is equipped with rails and a walk in shower. Outside, there is a ramp down to the pool area so it's not necessary to use the steps. So that's the villa...but what really made our stay perfect was the kindness and helpfulness of Eva and her husband. From our arrival, when Eva met us after 10.30pm at the bottom of the hill so that we could follow her to the villa, they couldn't have been more helpful. The following morning there was a problem with our rental car and Eva's husband spoke to the rental company to give them directions so that they could bring a replacement, and then also went to meet them to guide them to the villa. When we managed to get a parking ticket, he also offered to take our payment to the local post office. And one evening we thought we'd locked ourselves out (but hadn't!) and had to call Eva out. The villa is lovely, but they are what makes it really special.
