Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Rethymnon, Crete your home away from home

Rethymnon is the capital of the prefecture of the same name. Found on the rocky north coast of Crete, Rethymnon lies on the eastern edge of the largest beach in Crete, which stretches for 12km towards Chania. If you are lucky enough to rent a property in Rethymnon, Crete, you will get a great feeling for the island, as this is one of the most vibrant and hospitable places to take holiday accommodation in Crete.

Things to do on holiday to Rethymnon, Crete

There is a real elegance to Rethymnon, created by the arched doors, ancient buildings and 16th century villas which make up the town. There are a great number of Roman, Byzantine and Venetian ruins adorning the streets of Rethymnon, making walking tours of the town a genuine delight. The Fortezza Castle at the top of the town is one of the largest attractions, but the Rimondi Fountain, Venitian Loggia and Neratzes Mosque are all incredible sites to visit from a villa or apartment in Rethymnon. If you would like to further understand the history and culture of your surroundings before succumbing to the appeal of the coastline, the Folklore and History Museum is a magnificent place to visit. There is also an excellently presented Archaeological Museum to visit from a self catering property in Rethymnon, Crete.

During the long, warm evenings you will enjoy from a property in Rethymnon, Crete, the town centre will offer a huge range of entertainment possibilities. The pubs and clubs which surround the harbour are the centre of the more excitable nightlife, but the beaches are lined with a range of more relaxed, atmospheric bars. There are a range of really good restaurants in Rethymnon, creating international delicacies and local dishes, but for a truly world class meal, the seafood restaurants in Rethymnon are excellent.

However, you would be hard pushed to ignore the allure of the beach during your stay in self catering property in Rethymnon, Crete. The beach which stretches out in front of the town is lined with a promenade which lies in the shade of hundreds of palm trees, swaying in the reliable sea breezes that keep the air fresh and the windsurfers flying across the bay. The sand and shingle beaches which stretch almost as far as the eye can see are ideal for lazy holidays in the sun, or as a base for windsurfing, sailing and jet-skiing.

Places to visit on holiday to Rethymnon, Crete

Although it is on Crete’s south Coast, Agia Paraskevi is very easy to reach from a Rethymnon apartment. This region is one of the thinnest parts of Crete, and the atmosphere in the south of the island is noticeably different, and well worth investigation. Agia Paraskevi is a tiny fishing village, which was abandoned for many years. Now, having been slowly re-built, the village is an idyllic place to see, on top of a steep cliff overlooking the sea.

Weather in Rethymnon, Crete

Sea temperatures are wonderfully warm throughout much of the summer, reaching up to 26˚C in August. May until October sees temperatures reaching well into the mid 30’s (˚C), whilst in winter, temperatures still hover around 22˚C in winter days.

Travel to Rethymnon, Crete

A property in Rethymnon, Crete, is almost equi-distant from Chania Airport (CHQ) and Heraklion Airport (HER), which are served from the UK by ThomsonFly and First Choice Airways respectively. There are a larger range of departure points in the UK for flights arriving into Heraklion Airport, but there are a great range of transfer options from both, meaning there should be no problems in reaching your Rethymnon apartments.

Schöne Herbsttage in wundervoller Villa

4 of 5
Wir hatten zu viert schöne Herbsttage in der wundervollen Villa mit einem wirklich grandiosem Ausblick hoch über Rethymno. Unser erwachsener Sohn hatte zu seiner großen Begeisterung seinen eigenen Bereich mit getrenntem Eingang und Badezimmer sowie Terrasse. Die uns entgegengebrachte herzliche Gastfreundschaft von Giorgos und seiner Mutter war außergewöhnlich. Alle 3 Tage wurde die Villa gesäubert und kunstvollste Gebilde aus Handtüchern geformt. Maria ist eine Künstlerin! Die Küche ist vollständig ausgestattet. Uns hat jedoch ein Gang in eine der vielen umliegenden Tavernen sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Wir haben uns in unsere Ferienkatzen und den süßen Hund Spithos verliebt. Die Villa ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt, um mit dem Mietwagen 14 Tage Zentralkreta zu erkunden.

Villa naya

5 of 5
We have just spent 2 weeks in the fabulous Villa Naya in Rethymnon . The villa is amazing , we have stayed in a lot of villas in different countries but villa Naya is by far the best , it has everything you could possibly wish for and more , there isn't one thing I could think of that would make the villa any better and we made use of everything . The pool table and ping pong table got lots of use by the men and the cinema room was great for the little one as were the toys . The hot tub was a big hit with everyone . There was also a spare cot that could be wheeled outside for the baby so he could always be with us . Natasha was brilliant , she was there to greet us when we arrived (very late) and had got groceries in for us to last a few days and also ordered us pizzas as we hadn't eaten . Best pizzas ever from the pizza restaurant on the corner !! The town is easy to walk to and has lovely shops and restaurants , also a harbour with lots of places to eat around it . The beech is also within walking distance . We had a day at baja beach arranged for us all to have free entry for a day to Baja beach club and we had a gazebo , sun beds and towels and also a bottle of wine , all complimentary , lovely day . Any problems we had or if we wanted to know anything , Sophia was at the end of the phone to help us . Nothing was to much trouble . Natasha came in with cleaners one day and gave a box full of pastries for our breakfast and on the last day we had late flights an we were allowed to stay on until 6pm when we could drive straight to the airport . We would highly recommend Villa Naya and can't wait to go back
