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”!

Roussospiti

Roussospiti is situated 6 Kms away from the city of Rethymnon, located on the slope of Vrisinas mountain, at 300 meters altitude and it has about 370 residents. It is known as “the balcony of Rethymno” thanks to its marvellous view of the area, the sea and famous White Mountains! Roussospiti is the place most suitable place to totally relax and enjoy the stunning views of the area, as well as the nature! It’s ideal for walking, cycling and revitalising! It’s a vibrant village with a playground, two tavernas, a traditional cafe and a mini market! All within walking distance!

Through a scenic drive in the countryside you’ll be arriving at the village of Roussospiti, which has been classified as a preserved and traditional heritage site of great cultural value. Roussospiti was built around the 12th century by the Venetians, as evidenced by the Venetian buildings of the village (arches, gates). In the village with magnificent views of the Cretan Sea there are many sights of great value. There is a Fountain dating back to the 17th century. The Italian archaeologist Guseppe Gerola has described it as "graceful", a characterisation, which, on a closer look, one must agree with. The spout has the shape of a lion's head. Also, the church of the Virgin Mary, a small one-room church, built in the early 14th century is worth visiting. Several well preserved frescoes can be found inside the church. The Christ of the Crucifixion is one of the best frescoes of the church and represents one of the most dynamic forms of Cretan art.

Roussospiti is also offered as a great base for exploring the nearby villages! The Mili Myli Gorge can be found a few kilometres from Rethymno, 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. Also, the picturesque village of Chromonastiri, also a a preserved and traditional settlement, is very close to Roussospiti! 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.
