The Crete region
Crete is the largest of the Aegean islands and is the most Popular Island destination in the region. It has a wonderful sunny climate but with cool breezes from both the sea and the White Mountains that make it great for families, young and the more mature visitor.
The food from these verdant islands is very good as its sage and oregano with its wild flowers add unique flavour and variety to the local produce, with the honey and yoghurt being the best in the world. The Northwest of the Island has the nicest climate, cities (Rethymno, Chania) and the most unspoilt beaches in Crete.
Archeological, Historical, must sees include Knossos, Arcadi Monastery, with the ancient village of Maroulas a nearby treat and the Forteso in Rethymno that houses a great museum.
The Rethymno / Adele area
Rethymno is home to the oldest University in Greece. It is a beautiful seaside City of charm and endless pleasure in roaming the shop filled narrow streets near the Port. Wine and Olive Festivals with a central park for open air music and dance with Artisan produce in abundance.
The local Villages of Adele and Pigi are charming with the renovated Byzantine Hotel in Pigi well worth a look. The local Tavernas all serve food and drink with 'Fantastico' a must for eating out . My own favourite is the ' Fish' across the Bridge of Petra with a dive centre and beach bar also doing food and Traditional music.
Skypark does great food and pita and pizzas and they deliver free! and they also have Wifi and do cocktails. The taxi and bus stop are a stroll away.

08 Oct 2012
We stayed here Sept 2012. The communication from the owner before we left was good.We were given a drawn map to find the apartment.when we arrived we couldn't find the apartment which was frustrating so we finally asked a lovely lady at one of the restaurants near by. The apartment stands in a nice complex quite high up the side of the mountain.Very quiet most nights.You will need a car to get around. Or call a taxi. The taxi company charge a call out fee as well. The apartment itself was nice width patio,large balcony/ patio and also a roof terrace. The only thing for me missing was the lack of a t.v,an information pack and possible Wi-Fi. The swimming pool near the apartment was nice,clean and mostly only us in it. The bigger pool was located further up with the other apartments. Everything was there that you needed. I would stay again when neededing to get away from it all.
