Location description from manager

The Rethymnon Prefecture region

With a size of just under 8,500 square kilometres, that is 260 km across and between 15 and 60 km wide, this strikingly elongated island boasts 1,000 km of coastline.

Its 600,000 inhabitants are concentrated primarily in the urban areas, with more than one third residing in one of the three main towns of Chania, Rethymno, Heraklio, and Aghios Nikolaos, respective capitals of the four administrative regions of Chanion, Rethymnou, Herakliou, and Lassithiou.

Brief history
Cretan history spans well into the Neolithic era, some 6,000 years ago. The island has seen a series of peoples and civilizations reaching their peak and then collapsing only to be succeeded by the next one in row in their strife to hold on to the prized land. The richness of the soil and the strategic position amongst three continents seemed to have lured ambitious invaders from West and East. Thus, the Minoans and Mycenaeans of the pre-classical period were succeeded by the Athenians, then Alexandrians and soon the Romans. Before long, Byzantium took over and desperately resisted the Arab attacks, until it succumbed to the Venetian Crusaders, who in turn had to fight the Arabs and then the Turks, who eventually gained overall control in 1669. The island remained under Ottoman rule until 1913, when it finally rejoined the rest of Greece. This turbulent history and constant melting pot of cultures and civilisations competing for Crete, has left innumerable traces in the culture and landscape of the island, but has most of all, forged a distinctly independent Cretan identity which survives to this day, and proudly precedes the Cretans' Greek origin.

Geography
The island's geography couldn't be simple either! The terrain is amazingly varied, which, though a surprise to those used to the Cycladic islands or the Ionian islands to the west, is a natural consequence of the size and position of the island. Where else in Greece can you see mountain ranges towering well over 2,450 metres, snow-capped in winter and carpeted in local flora in spring and early summer. Mountain plateaus cover the rest of the island, apart from when they are slashed by spectacular gorges, or gently peter out in the low plains reaching the sea. The beaches range from your archetypal sandy paradise, to idyllic little bays and rocky coves with family friendly rock pools, or picturesque fishing harbours with mirror-sharp clean waters and pebbles underfoot.

It is the diversity and size of the island that make the impulsive wish to return a natural reaction of the first time visitor, and, as the well seasoned visitor will tell you, make car rental and even boat hire (or boat trips for the non-mariners) a very reasonable means to make the most of your holiday.
