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

Archontiki remains a village of neighbours and friends beyond the reach of the Rethymno coast mass tourism. Walk to the local tavern for a superb local meal or enjoy a regional evening cafe to the local kafenion where the locals gathering.

The beach Episkopi is located really close, 7 minutes by car. It is a long beach, which is sandy and shallow, like most beaches of Northern Crete. It is very well organised, since there are many hotels, restaurants, taverns, bars and all the amenities one could need. In the western part of the beach you can find places with lifeguards, showers, changing rooms, umbrellas, snack bars, water sports, etc., perfect for children. However, given its large size, you can certainly find a quiet spot.
