The Rethymnon Prefecture region

Crete the birthplace of Zeus, has been a center of civilization of Europe in Minoan times. Today's archaeological treasures of the Minos palace at Knossos, history and myth, amazing combination of mountains, remarkable gorges, beeches with clear waters, Cretan cuisine and its people make Crete an unforgettable choice for holidays.


Rethymno the picturesque nearby town, is surrounded by hills and mountains as it is falling gently into the Aegean Sea. It has a 11 km long sandy beach on east side, the historical town centre in the middle, and its rocky end on the other end, which offers an amazing view of the town itself and of its Venetian Castle. From this west side you enjoy miraculous sunsets over the sea! Renaissance monuments and mosques from the Turkish occupation call upon the visitor to look into Rethymno's long history. There are many old, small, friendly and lively streets to stroll along whilst shopping for local products, jewellery, icons and souvenirs.

"Wonderful, relaxing holiday in an amazing home with friendly and fun owners"

We had a fantastic two week break in Rithymna Mansion. The photographs do not do this beautiful home justice! The pool is large and really deep - great for playing and serious swimming. The veranda… More

"Amazing holliday"

In July 2014 had a wonderful holiday at the villa Rithymna mansion. A comfortable house with wonderful views of the sea and mountains, located not far from a very nice beach and tavernas. The house is very comfortable layout to stay a big company and equipped with all necessary for living things. Relaxing, we felt the Cretan lifestyle and hospitality. Thank you, Giorgos !

Dear Arina & Sergei,
It was an honor to meet you and your family. I hope i always have such excellent guests, taking such good care of the house, being relaxed, and enjoying their holidays. I think you felt a bit like home. I really hope to see you again in the future.
Until then, many greetings from Rethymno,

"Wonderful holiday, fantastic villa"

We have just returned from a week in the villa and had a fantastic time. The villa was spotless on arrival and the fridge was stocked with fruit, wine, beer and water. Giorgos was an excellent host and could not do enough for us both before and during our stay. The pictures do not do the villa justice and the view is breathtaking. It was great to return after a day out for a swim in the pool to cool off. The beaches in the south are best for snorkelling and the local taverna is a 5 minute walk away. The service can be a little slow but the owner, Yannis, is constantly on the go and we did not mind waiting. The food is excellent and good value. One minor gripe was that on arrival we could not easily locate the road to the villa from the main road as there is no sign for the villa despite the directions advising to look for it. You just need to turn right at the first crossroad sign when entering Prines and drive down a slope which does not look like it leads anywhere. If we return to this part of Crete we would have no hesitation in returning to this villa. Thanks Giorgos and give Bella a stroke from us all.

Dear Anne & Julie, Thank you for your kind words and for being such excellent guests, leaving the villa as clean as you had found it, and that i think it's an understatement. You are right about the the photos and the directions to the villa, both must be updated as soon as possible. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future. With my best regards to the rest of the family, Giorgos

Si vous souhaitez un séjour agréable et tranquille au milieu des oliviers, avec une vue magnifique sur la mer et les montagnes, des couchers de soleils magiques, une maison parfaitement entretenue et très bien agencée (détails plus que soignés), un ascenseur et des chambres climatisées parfaitement équipées, une piscine de 20 mètres de long à 30° qui rafraîchit à toute heure, ne cherchez plus, réservez pour cette magnifique villa ! Le propriétaire Giorgos vous y accueillera à bras ouverts !
Nous y sommes restés 5 jours fin juillet-début août et nous y retournerons sans hésiter l'année prochaine ! Encore un grand merci à Giorgos pour son accueil formidable :)
(Une bise à Bella)

Dear Flo, It was a great pleasure to meet you, Carol, and your friends. Thank you very much for your nice words and comments, i truly appreciate them. Until next time we meet then, I wish you all the best, Giorgos

We've just returned from a few days stay at this big luxurious house. The owner is lovely, we were made to feel very welcome. The rooms are really spacious & well equipped!

The private garden and swimming-pool and is bigger than it looks in the pictures and it is very deep as well!! We enjoyed a lot there!! If you forget something home don't be worry because you will find it there for sure!! The owner (Giorgios) received us with lots of fresh fruit on the first day, such as cherrys, pears, watermelon and more things (such as licors) that we found in the fridge and all over the house. This is what we call a good 'welcome'.

Moreover, once we arrived we were told that we could use the house telephone to call to our country as many times as we need it and totally free of charge. We were supposed to leave the house in the morning but he gave us permission to leave it at night without any extra cost, as we were going to have a flight late during the night. That was really cool as we could leave our bags there in the house and even enjoy the house until the last moment.

The owner is not living in the mansion when somebody has rented it, but whatever you need, he is always willing to answer the phone and even to come over to help everyone. The last day we enjoyed a dinner together before having the flight back home, and we could meet to one another properly. He has a dog that he got from an animal shelter whose name is BELLA, and it's a really loving and warm dog.

Actually, I forgot to say that the house is now much better than you see it in the pictures as he has done some works lately but he hasn't updated the pictures yet.

All in all a great relaxing holiday with the best house we have ever rented. Of course it is a really good option, specially value for money!!!! We hope to go back again in the future!!
Huge hugs from Barcelona, Catalonia!!!

My dear friends,
I find it difficult to express myself in writing, after the comments and remarks you have made.
All i can say is a big, sincere, Thank You.
It was a very nice to meet you guys, definitely cool to hang around with.
Bella sends you a kiss or two!!
I'm sure to see you again soon, until then, salut i força al canut!!!
