The Crete region

Welcome to Rethymno, Crete! The beautiful city of Rethymno is standing on the site where ancient Rithymna used to be, as archaeological excavations of the late Neolithic period (3500- 2800 BC) proved. It is the gate way between Chania and Heraklion. Full of rich history, ancient sites, magnificent sandy beaches, Byzantine churches, lovely villages & lively resorts.

Rethymno combines an old- time aristocratic appearance with a modern aspect, a blend which is creating a unique atmosphere.

Various elements are participating to the charm of this attractive town such as the many arched doorways and stone staircases, 16th century buildings, Byzantine, Hellenic and Roman remains, narrow stone-paved streets, the small Venetian harbour and the superb huge municipal gardens, ideal for peacefulness and tranquility.

FESTIVALS AND CELEBRATIONS IN RETHYMNON:The Renaissance Festival is the culmination of the city's cultural festivals. The festival plays host during its three weeks to a variety of theatrical, musical and cinematic events as well as dance and multi-media spectacles. The Cretan wine festival Already over 35 years old, this celebration in the public park lasts two weeks in the heart of summer and attracts thousands of visitors. The Rethymnon Carnival held at the start of Lent every year, has been revived in recent years and it can be regarded one of the best and biggest in Greece. The feast of Klidonas, a historic celebration every June which maintains an interesting custom of burning the flower wreaths which were made on first of May. The fishermen's festival Celebratory festival in the Venetian Harbour, with free fish and wine on offer. Rich flora and fauna as the climate and geomorphy of Rethymnon, and Crete generally, allow the existence of a large number of species, many of which are endemic to the island. As a result, the visitor may find natural treasures that have existed on the island for centuries and were depicted in Minoan frescoes such as the sea lily, sea turtles "caretta caretta" which lay their eggs on the beaches and may even see the Eleanora's falcon which migrates from Africa in the summer months. In the valleys, the visitor will come across, beautiful Fauna and Flora unique to Crete,dozens of varieties of wild flowers. The quick-eyed visitor may also spot hares, skunks, martens, hedgehogs, bats and many types of birds. In the semi-mountainous areas many birds of prey soar the blue skies. In the mountains amongst other varieties are the Cretan maple (acer sempervirens), the Cretan tulip (tulipa cretica), the yellow violet (erysimum raulini) etc. This is also the most important habitat for birds of prey as well as the Cretan wild goat and the thorn mouse (Amocos minus). In the wetlands of Geropotamos and Preveli, the visitor will encounter interesting fauna and flora, especially the latter, which includes the Cretan Palm tree (phoenix theophrastii). Lastly, in the gorges visitors can come across the famous Cretan dittany and other fragrant plants of Crete. Rethymno is a haven for walks, cyclists or just site seeing!!!

"Amazing choice" We selec ted Villa Avra at Panormos based on "gut feeling".it was beyond our expectations. The villa is beautiful, clean, modern and comfortable. Its location is the best one can imagine. Quiet, peaceful and serene. Argiro, the owner, is extremely helpful and welcoming. We arrived to a lovely welcome delicious basket of home made jams and fruits. We enjoyed our stay in Panormos and especially at Villa Avra. I think the pictures do not do justice to the villa and its premises.

Fantastic villa" Villa Avra was the perfect location for our family holiday. The villa has been finished to a very high standard and is perfectly equipped for a self catering holiday. The complex is nice and quiet with a lovely swimming pool and fantastic views out to sea. Panormo is only a 10 minute walk and has a great little beach ideal for families, along with a some great little supermarkets and taverners. The owners were really helpful and left a great welcome basket.

Beautiful villa" We had a wonderful stay in Villa Avra. The views are beautiful, sitting on the patio watching the sunrise/sunset was amazing. The pool is stunning. Argiro the owner is the perfect host and goes out of her way to make you have the best holiday.

28 Oct 2013 5/5 "Beautiful villa in fabulous location" We staying the Villa Avra for one week in October. The villa itself is great and has everything - even kids toys and lilo for the pool. The villa is a good 10-15 walk to the village, you can either walk along the road or along the shore. The beach in the village is good with a gentle shelf so swimming in the sea is lovely. The village is small and pretty, has a couple of small shops, good bakery (lovely pasteries) and butchers. The pool in the villa was great and the kids loved it. It was a little cold for me as we were there in October but I think most pools are unheated anyway.
