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.

Beautiful property in an ideal location

5 of 5
We arrived really late at night Lina was waiting for us, drinks, fruit and basics ready in the fridge we cant thank her enough. The property is beautifully furnished and contains everything you could need to enjoy your holiday, even down to a fully stocked medicine box they have thought of everything.

Stylish,Modern and Comfortable

After a delayed night flight, a wrong turning and a punctured tyre - we finally arrived to find the owner was still waiting for us with the key and some home made Greek goodies and produce. What fabulous,warm hospitality! It's a sharp turn off the National Road to get to Adele, so it's worth checking the route on Google Earth especially if you are due to arrive in the dark. Everything at the Villa is run efficiently and well: the housekeeper arrives regularly, the pool is cleaned out and we even saw the gardener on our last day. The pool is a welcome addition and there is enough shade surrounding the terrace to provide a welcome relief from the intense summer sun. We enjoyed living amongst the locals and bought locally produced olive oil, bread and fish to cook on the BBQ from the corner shop and mini market just outside the village. Whilst you do need a car, it's not far from the plethora of beaches and bays and other local attractions. The furthest we travelled to was Phaistos and Aghia Triada which we thought were archaelogical gems and we also explored the Armari Valley with its spectacular mountain ranges, natural water springs and scenery, stopping off for lunch at a traditionalTaverna tucked away in one of the mountain villages. Moni Arkadi, was a memorable visit with its turbulent history and we had a memorable lunch at the Faragi mountain Taverna whilst our daughter was kept amused in their garden playground. Rethymnon and Xania are great towns to explore with their shops, ports and architecture. Try a Rethymnon beer too! We had a relaxing summer holiday yet enjoyed exploring this part of this area of Crete. Thank you
