Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Rethimno - Emmanouil City Apartemnt!

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Great Balcony With View, City Apartment, Ideal Location

Emmanouil Apartment is a well designed, stunning flat for those who want updated style, combined with convenient location and easy access to the city! The location is ideal for days of touring and tasting your way across this perennially compelling city. Equidistant to multiple points on virtually any axis of interest: architecture, art, history, culinary treasures, shopping and an endless sandy beach! From Emmanouil Apartment you can get to the Fortezza Castle in the sacred hush of early morning when the monument is at its most serene. The Thursday open air market is an engaging stroll of 3 minutes walking distance from the apartment! You can wander out to the Rethymno's old Town late at night for an overloaded raki experience in the one of the twenty “rakadika” available, little dinning venues with “regional meze delicacies” and plenty of raki.

Living at Emmanouil Apartment defines what it means to open your door and be right in the city - above everything a wonderful, distracting walk away through a timelessly vibrant and diverse city and of course so close to the Rethymno sandy beach!

The apartment features two double bedrooms and it comfortably accommodates 2–5 guests in style and privacy. One of the bedrooms and living room open up to a small furnished balcony with view to the Fortezza Castle and the park right across the street. Additionally, a brand new, fully-equipped efficient kitchen and a bathroom with a shower. This elegant, spacious apartment is beautifully appointed, appealing in every sense and perfectly well-equipped for modern day vacationers and all interiors are recently renewed.

Great apartment, well situated

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Emmanouil apartment! My husband, myself and our two young sons had plenty of space, and loved being so close to the old town and within a few minutes of the beach, while having easy parking on the street. The apartment was bright and spacious, and we were grateful for the high chair for the baby. Valia and our host Eva were flexible and accommodating regarding arrival and departure times. We would definitely stay there again!

well suituated but noisy

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is close to the charming old town and it is only a few minutes’ walk to the wonderful beach.

Valia, thank you for the perfect organization. We could easily find the apartment.

The apartment is located near to the central bus station so it was easy to reach the apartment from the airport of Heraklion and that is why we did a lot of trips by bus and didn’t need a car.

The apartment is located on the 2ndfloor of a small house on the main street. The resident in the apartment on the 1st floor played the piano from the morning till the evening almost every day. Unfortunately we could hear it in the apartment and on the balcony. That was very annoying and disturbing especially for a holiday. In addition, there is a lot of noisy traffic on the street.

The kitchen is equipped with a lot of electrical equipment. However we missed some normal things like a casserole or a big pan.

We can recommend visiting the nice town Rethymno but because of the noise we wouldn`t book this apartment again.

Welcome to the city of Rethymnon, a place blessed with beauty, embraced by breathtaking mountains and the deep blue of the Mediterranean, decorated with renaissance colours and inhabited by people known for their hospitality, honoring their ancestors and traditions.

Rethymno is rich in monuments of exceptional beauty, like temples, monasteries, Venetian villages and castles. The blue seas and the picturesque land offer many opportunities for tours and sports like diving, sailing, cycling etc. In Rethymno, you can find dozens of traditional coffee shops with local specialities. The hotels and apartments to rent in Rethymno offer high standard hospitality and services.

Tourism is one of the most important activities in the Mediterranean. However, while its development is based on the preservation and promotion of historical cities and sites, it sometimes results in their destruction, through uncontrollable construction. For this reason, the Municipality of Rethymno attempts to design and promote alternative development plans with respect to the local historical heritage and natural environment. This effort is based on a 'CIVILIZATION-ENVIRONMENT-TOURISM' model and promotes sustainable development plans in the city of Rethymno.

In Rethymno you can enjoy the breathtaking sight of an endless sandy beach that meets on one side the blue see and on the other the enchanting view of the city. For all the time Winter and summer! The beach of Rethymno is 12 km long, it starts from the historical city center and extends to the Eastern part of the isle reaching Scaleta. Rethymno beach has fine-grained brilliant light brown sand.

Where you can walk barefoot and feel how soft and beautiful it is. There's nothing more rejuvenating than kicking off your shoes to sink your toes into powdery-golden, squeaky-clean beach sand.
