The picturesque village of Chromonastiri is located 7 Kms southeast of Rethymno town. It has been classified as a preserved and traditional heritage site of great cultural value and it’s considered as one of the most important historic settlements of Rethymno. Chromonastiri means 'Colour Monastery' after the Byzantine church dating from the 11th century.

Within this pretty village there are numerous stone paths, historic alleys, buildings with Venetian architectural elements are scattered in the village, but the most imposing building is the so-called Villa Claudio, a magnificent mansion, which has been restored and now houses an Army museum. At the village’s square, within 15 meters walking distance, there are two tavernas, a traditional cafe and a super market! Furthermore, a 5X5 football field and a children’s playground exist in the village. Additionally, its location and surrounding area makes it a perfect destination for a relaxing holiday close to nature!

Chromonastiri is ideally located 7 Kms from the beautiful sandy beach of Rethymno and it’s offered as a great base for exploring the nearby villages! The Mili Gorge, a wonderful leafy area, can be found just 2 Kms away, along the Amari Road. There are also a several small ponds and a picnic area. Additionally, Roussospiti village, next to Chromonastiri, also a a preserved and traditional settlement, offers two traditional tavernas, playground, a cafe and mini market.

Furthermore, in the nearby village of Saint Irene (Agia Irini) there is the homonymous old Monastery, which is considered to date back to the 14th century.
