Thank you for your review. We are glad you and your wife anjoyed the apartment itself, although we are really sorry for the unfinished outside area, its not in our hand to be fixed.
This apartment is in Rethymno, the third largest town in Crete lying at the north coast of the island, between Heraklion and Chania. It is surely one of the most beautiful towns in Greece displaying a unique cultural blend of Venetian, Cretan and Turkish history. Near the residence you can visit historic sites of Rethymno (Rimondi fountain, mosques, old churches, venetian houses), wander around the stone paved alleys of the old town and discover romantic cafes and traditional gift shops, dine at the fish taverns of the Venetian Harbor, or walk barefooted on the seaside across our house.
While staying in this unique apartment, you will find yourself in the middle of the city' s nightlife. The local area is served by many shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. Most of the major nightclubs, cafes and restaurants are just on your feet, the only thing you need to do is go down the road (10 min walking ) and you’re right in the heart of everything! Within walking distance is a super market, where you can find all you may need for everyday cooking.
In addition, you can find yourself lost in the picturesque neighbourhoods of Rethymno, where you will discover the Venetian era of the city, as well as unique souvenirs to take home.
If you’re in the mood for swimming, the sea is right on your feet. Or you can find an organized beach with sun beds, umbrellas and a variety of water sports within a 10 minute walking distance.
Apart from the Renaissance old town, Rethymno is also famous for the longest sandy beach on Crete, stretching 12 km from this apartment to the east, filled with lively taverns and cafes. On the west side of the hotel, the idyllic Venetian harbor and the impressive “ Fortezza ” fortress are only some minutes of a romantic walk from your hotel apartment. This ideal location of the property makes it a unique accommodation in Rethymno.
In addition to all the above, many Rethymnon holiday festivals that take place near the hotel like the wine Festival of Cretan diet products, folk music and Cretan dances, church feasts, Renaissance festivals and the famous Rethymno Carnival keep the town very much alive throughout the whole year. Rethymno still remains a holiday destination in Crete where the visitor can experience the pure Cretan “philoxenia” unaffected from commercialized mass tourism and this apart hotel residence is a perfect example of a hotel with such exceptional hospitality.
Whether you choose to spend your time at the beach, go out in Rethymno town or enjoy some local wine at your private balcony you can be sure that your stay here will always be memorable...
