Destination guide

Combine medieval history and modern fun with Rethimno villas

This town lies on Crete's northern coast and is east of Chania. The Venetian Harbour attracts travellers with its beautiful ocean view and makes a wonderful spot to watch sunsets. The brick Rethimno Lighthouse stands at the end of the harbour's walls. You can explore the 16th-century Fortezza of Rethimno, where a hospital, Turkish mosque and certain medieval buildings remain. You can see exhibits of ancient coins and sculptures and learn about the island's early history at Rethimno Archaeological Museum. When you book your villa for a Crete holiday, the air conditioning and ceiling fans will keep you cool during the summer months
