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.

This conversion had been carried out very tastefully and the photos did not convey just how spacious and charming it is. We particularly enjoyed the courtyard garden area and the small swimming pool. Maroulas is an interesting historic village and there were several good tavernas within a short drive of the villa. This may sound a bit picky but we would have liked the kitchen to have more pots and pans as we like to cook on occasion as well as visiting the local restaurants. Other than this minor issue we had a fantastic holiday and we intend to return at some point.

We travelled as a group of 9 for a family members birthday and the villa and location ticked every box. The owner met us there on arrival and talked though a few things such as the solar heated hot water and when she would be there to change bedding/towels. We were firstly a little worried to book this due to the just one review but certainly glad we did, so I'm writing this to put anyone else's minds at rest. The place was very clean and tidy, all bedrooms had built-in wardrobes and outside were plenty of sunbeds and a very clean pool. The location, situated literally on the beach, was great. It was about a 25/30min walk, along the beachfront, to the town centre (or a 5euro taxi ride) where there were loads of fab restaurants and it was great exploring the old Rethymono town. Saying that there were also many restaurants and shops locally to the villa. We all in all had a great week and would definitely return to both Villa Irida and Crete!
