Crete

Crete is an island with soul, a blessed land where mythology and ancient history meet with the recent history, amazing food (one of the best olive oils in the world) and authentic people.

It is the largest island in Greece and the 5th largest in the Mediterranean Sea. It is a very diverse land where you can visit some of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, mountains, rivers & lakes as well as gorges.

Additionally, the island is the birthplace of Europe’s first advanced civilization, the Minoan (2700 – 1420 BC).

Another important asset Cree has to offer is the overall feeling of safety on the island. Crete has a very low percentage of criminality and guarantees a peaceful holiday to its visitors.

Crete has a privileged geographical position in the Mediterranean, which gives it a mild climate with mild changes of the weather. The sunshine lasts almost the whole year with greater intensity from April to October. The hottest months are July and August, but generally because of the sea breeze and the effect of the etesian winds, the summer is relatively cool.

Rethymno

The Prefecture of Rethymno is located between Chania and Heraklio (distance from chania: 60 km, from Heraklio 75 km) and it is the 3rd largest city of Crete. Rethymno is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Greece with an impressive Venetian port and castle and traces of the Venetian and Ottoman Era through out its picturesque “Old Town”.

Interesting archaeological sites , (byzantine churches, Monasteries) endless and awarded the Blue Flag beaches, traditional villages and a country side with a contrasting scenery full of contradictions (mountains, gorges, fertile valleys, rocky coastline and sandy beaches) are among the attractions of Rethymno.
