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.

Lovely property, so peaceful and beautiful views

5 of 5
We had the most wonderful holiday in Crete, probably our best yet! The villa was ideal for our family of 5. It was set in very peaceful surroundings and in the lovely village of Kefalas where everyone was so welcoming. We ate at both restaurants frequently and enjoyed both. Maddies was very relaxed and we enjoyed the live Greek music at the restaurant above the Inka shop. The lady running the shop was lovely and so helpful too. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. There was plenty of room around the pool for sun beds. The pool was such a welcome relief when we returned from days out and also to cool you down during the hot days. The air conditioning was great too. The views from the villa were just amazing. I would jump out of bed in the morning and just go and sit out there on my own and enjoy the scenery and peace and quiet. Just perfect. For us the villa was ideal, it was within driving distance to lots of fabulous places to visit, including beaches. Our favourite two being Kalives and Alymirda. We had great communication from the owner too. We will definitely be booking to stay here again and have recommended it to family & friends.

Beautiful and immaculate villa surrounded by gorgeous mountain views! So peaceful and serene! Manolis was a gracious host and went above and beyond what was expected before and during our stay. We enjoyed good conversation and appreciated his knowledge and interest in sharing the history of his island and making suggestions of highlights in central Crete to visit. Everything about the house was perfect - the beds were comfortable, the sheets were wonderful, every amenity was present, the kitchen had everything that was needed and the food that greeted us was generous and lovely! Rumy welcomed us and was very attentive to our needs. It was a treat to enjoyed her cooking two traditional Greek dinners for us. So fresh and delicious! We departed with fond memories. I have nothing but praise and would love to return for a month! Mahalo Manolis and Rumy!
