The neighborhood
Situated 120 meters above the sea level in the fertile Mousselas river valley, offering panoramic views of the Cretan Sea to its inhabitants, the village of Episkopi (Greek for diocese) lies 16 kilometers west of the town of Rethymno. Being the administrative and religious center of the area, Episkopi has plenty of cafes, tavernas, shops, churches and a beach to keep you occupied. A 5-minute drive further south from Episkopi will lead you to the ancient town of Lappa and picturesque village of Argyroupoli with its rich vegetation and natural water springs. Moreover, the lake Kournas, a beautiful, freshwater lake with mountain backdrop is also within close proximity.
The slow-moving, romantic town of Rethymno that still preserves much of its Venetian and Turkish appearance is only 15-minute drive away. From gourmet to traditional, Rethymno offers more than 200 eateries to choose from and also has a very active nightlife with its sea-front cocktail bars open till late in the evening.
