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.

Fabulous villa for a retreat from the real world

5 of 5
We were delighted with the villa, very private, clean and comfortable. Just as we expected from the description. The village is small and there are two excellent places to eat just a few minutes away and very reasonably priced. You need a 4 x 4 to comfortably explore the area and we enjoyed plenty of walks in the hills and alongside the beach. Everyone very friendly. We would love to return to stay again. Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your home.

Wonderful views! Stunning Villa in South Crete!

5 of 5
The villa was adequately furnished, clean and functional! Spacious bedrooms, bright, high quality bedding facilities and very comfortable. The most amazing of this house is its secluded location. If you are looking for tranquility and relaxation, you may choose this villa for your holidays! The pool is amazing and heatable and the views stunning! Just you and the ocean! If you have the courage, try to get to the beach down of the villa, but mention lot of stairs exist. Recommended to take some supplies with you. Don't miss to use the indoor steam bath. Everyone involved was very helpful and giving us lots of advices for the entire area in the South, where to go, where to eat, where to swim. Although there is not a shop nearby the villa for your supplies in a walking distance there is no problem with that you can shop everything from Agia Galini, which is the nearest village with lots of amenities and restaurants. It is a necessity to rent a car to have easier access to everything. We enjoyed very much our stay in this villa in Agios Paulos!
