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 was an excellent family holiday enjoyed by 5 adults staying in Villa Georgia. The villa, pool and surroundings were stunning. The property was excellent and exceeded our expectations.All our needs were catered for and enhanced our holiday experience. Crete is a beautiful island with lots to offer, sun, sea and mountains. The weather was perfect, but what really made this holiday stand out from the rest was the friendliness and hospitality of the local people who embraced us into their community. Gifts of home made food and locally grown fruits from the owner and team made us feel special and welcome. A fantastic holiday, we didnt want to leave and Im sure we will be back.

A luxurious holiday getaway for all the family

5 of 5
We recently visited for the Easter holidays with two children under 8 and had a fantastic time. It was our first visit to the island in almost 20 years and it was almost magical to see the island start to wake up for the new season and not be too busy to enjoy some of the areas that might otherwise be overrun with tourists. We chose Crete for the spring sunshine and finding this collection of villas was a great find as our friends were able to join us with their 3 year old and rent the next door villa, with adjoining gate! It was perfect! The pool was a perfect size and the sun deck with loungers and table provided a great space for both relaxing and eating. The huge barbecue was well used! Indoors didn't disappoint either with spacious bedrooms and plenty of room downstairs too. The villa and our host was amazing. The owner, Kostas, welcomed us and showed us around, and we regularly returned from our day trips to find local delicacies left for us to enjoy. The service was fantastic, from booking and management from Vaila at Think Villa, to our actual stay and the wonderful staff Kostas employs to maintain the properties. Thank you! We will be back!!
