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.

Our stay was lovely and everyone was very accommodating to ensure we had a lovely holiday. The owners were lovely people and couldn't do enough to ensure we were comfortable. A car is essential as the property was very remote. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

                                                                                                      We loved the accommodation - fantastic main open plan room, lovely kitchen and high spec to all appliances and bathrooms, furniture. Lovely white linen and towels provided. Pool area had fantastic view but pool was very very cold and unfortunately some evenings it was too cold/windy to sit outside, probably due to high location as we found it was considerably warmer down on the coast. That was the only drawback to our stay. Gaby was very helpful although a 'manual' of how to work appliances and local places to have to refer to would be very useful and something we have had in other villas we have stayed in. Couldnt fault the accommodation though and had a lovely time there.
