Location description from manager

The Rethymnon Prefecture region

Rethymno, with its clear blue seas and endless beaches, Mount Psiloritis, several caves, gorges and unique flora and fauna, awaits to offer you a unique holiday experience! There is such a big variety of landscapes and beautiful locations to visit that one is never bored. The mild Mediterranean climate, together with the popular Cretan diet gives visitors the chance of healthy living and exploring. Rethymno and its villages are live postcards, pervaded by the aroma of Cretan cuisine and the sound of the Cretan lyre. People here live amidst nature and emotions, outside the city's code of behaviour. No matter where you go, even to the most isolated village, people will open their home doors, invite you in and treat you to a “raki"!

Rethymnon

The picturesque village of Chromonastiri is located 9.5 Kms southeast of Rethymno town, at the foot of Vrysinas Mountain. It has been classified as a preserved and traditional heritage site of great cultural value and it’s considered as one of the most important historic settlements of Rethymno. Chromonastiri means 'Colour Monastery' after the Byzantine church dating from the 11th century. Also, in the years 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009 Chromonastiri received an award of the ‘”cleaner and organised traditional community”.

Within this pretty village there are numerous stone paths, historic alleys, buildings with Venetian architectural elements are scattered in the village, but the most imposing building is the so-called Villa Claudio, a magnificent mansion, which has been restored and now houses an Army museum. At the village’s square, within 100 meters walking distance, there is are two tavernas, a traditional cafe and a super market! Furthermore, a 5X5 football field and a children’s playground exist in the village. Additionally, its location and surrounding area makes it a perfect destination for a relaxing holiday close to nature!

Chromonastiri is ideally located 7 Kms from the beautiful sandy beach of Rethymno and it’s offered as a great base for exploring the nearby villages! The Mili Myli Gorge, a wonderful leafy area, can be found ust 2 Kms away, along the Amari Road. The gorge has some beautiful ruins of old houses and water mills that once formed the village. Huge mulberry, cypress and nut trees grow wild along the gorge’s edge. At the top of the gorge there is a small taverna where you can sit and sample some Cretan dishes whilst enjoying the view. There are also a several small ponds and a picnic area. Additionally, Roussospiti village, next to Chromonastiri, also a a preserved and traditional settlement, offers two traditional tavernas, playground, a cafe and mini market. Furthermore, in the nearby village of Saint Irene (Agia Irini) there is the homonymous old Monastery, which is considered to date back to the 14th century. After restoration works that started in 1989, the monastery was given a new life due to the eager activities of the nuns. There is an ecclesiastical museum in the Monastery area, called Holy Trinity Ecclesiastical museum of Saint Irene.Additionally, from the village you can easily reach the highway leading to Chania and Heraklion cities.
