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.

Amazing big villa in the green with stunning view

5 of 5
We stayed at the villa with 4 adults and two kids (age 2). It is a very big and over the top clean villa with an amazing bbq area and two perfect clean pools. There are also many toys for kids. The kitchen is very good and stufft sufficiently. There was a cleaning service which cleaned the house twice when we were there (new linen and towles were provided). The pool was cleaned daily. Opposite of the villa are two donkeys which are kids loved feeding. There is also e high-end dryer and washing maschine. It was very easy to get hold of the owner. The villa has two beds for kids and two chairs for kids provided. We would recommend to villa no doubt. You could even go there with more people. The neighbourhood is very quiet and friendly. We had a very good time!

Amazing 5 star holiday

5 of 5
Villa Orchidea is the place if you want a true relaxed and beautiful holiday. The views from the vila and garden are great, and the pool area feels very private. The welcome given by the owners is very warm, and the attention to keeping the property clean during your stay feels very nice. The villa is equipped with everything you can possibly need, from bathrobe to a waffle machine. Thanks again for this, a true 5 star holiday.
