A Scenic Crete Holiday Spot
The town of Rethymnon is situated on the north coast of the Greek Island of Crete. Rethymnon is the main town in the region (or prefecture) of the same name. Rethymnon is Crete's third largest town and features a fascinating mix of the old and the modern, both in terms of the architecture and the culture of the town.
With an imposing 16th century fortress standing proud over the tangled streets below, Rethymnon's picturesque harbour features a number of pleasant bars and tavernas with scenic views across the water. Among the winding streets of Rethymnon the impressive Venetian architecture is complimented perfectly by the ornate fountains and elegant archways of the town.
There are plenty of opportunities for shopping on holiday in Rethymnon with several good shops, chic boutiques and regular markets. The accommodation on Rethymnon holidays is mainly small Hotels and Apartments, suitable for a range of budgets. The Rethymnon beach is definitely something to write home about.
A staggering 12 miles of pale sand and shingle washed by warm clear water, Rethymnon holidays offer plenty of opportunities for lazing on the sand, swimming in the sea or trying your hand at a range of water sports available.
Rethymnon holidays certainly give you plenty of variety with lots of sights to see and excursions to enjoy such as the remarkable Samaria gorge or a day trip to the beautiful island of Santorini.
