The Crete region
Although Crete is well-developed for the tourist industry and has everything the modern holiday-maker could wish for, the islanders maintain much of their culture and many of their traditions. There are still villages from a quieter, more peaceful age where shepherds tend their flocks and the way of life is centuries old.
Sample some of the fabulous Cretan cuisine, prepared from fresh, locally grown produce at a local taverna washed down, of course, by a glass of the local wine. Crete is known for its ancient artefacts and has a rich and varied history spanning many civilisations and it is believed that Crete is the birthplace of the Greek god, Zeus.
For the more active holidaymaker there is a range of activities and water sports on offer. Visit one of Crete’s water parks for a day of family fun; learn to water-ski, scuba dive or go snorkelling amongst the wide range of marine species that live along the coastline.
For those preferring to spend their days on dry land there is fishing or horse-riding, golf, mountain climbing and abseiling into one of the spectacular gorges that slice the landscape or, of course, simply relaxing with a good book on one of the many sandy beaches.
The Rethymno / Skouloufia area
This residential villa development is situated on the outskirts of the attractive, historic Cretan village of Skouloufia and is only 5.5km from the nearest beach. The development has a private café/bar built in a traditional Cretan style and serving free coffee, tea, wine and the local speciality, raki, for the exclusive enjoyment of guests.
The village is only 8km (5miles) from the large, sandy Stavromenos beach which has taverns selling traditional Cretan dishes and which is a favourite nesting ground of the endangered Carretta Carretta seaturtle, which clambers up onto these golden shores once a year to lay their eggs. 4km (2.5miles) from here is the Adele beach with its watersports facilities and a selection of bars. The villa’s nearest selection of full restaurants, bars, tavernas and a supermarket is 3km (2miles) away in the 3,000 year old town of Elefterna, where the remains of an ancient Greco-Roman city were excavated.
For more cosmopolitan dining and livelier nightlife the town of Rethymno is only 18km (11miles) away. The area is dotted with ancient and historical monuments dating back to the Ottoman and Byzantine eras, notably the amazing stalagmites and stalactites of Cavern of Melidoni, which is a site of particular archaeological and historical interest, and the monastery of Arkadi. In order to enjoy the delights this beautiful area of Crete has to offer car hire is considered essential for this villa.
