Between the mountains, with a spectaculair view. In the middle of the Greek life and culture, away from the mass tourism, but also just a few miles from... More

Close to Heraklion is... More

Rethymno lies roughly in the middle of the Crete. It can work very well as a hub from where tourists can take day trips either in the western direction, to Hania OR to the east, Iraklio, Ayios Nikolaos. Tourists can also stay put and enjoy superior accommodations, excellent meals in the old town, and wonderful beaches.

In May we made a return visit to Footscapes – in fact we’ve been returning every year since Footscapes opened in 2005, which says something about how much we enjoy our holidays there. Footscapes is spectacularly situated atop a small hill near the village of Kastellos. This affords wonderful views both to the sea and to the mountains, as well... More

Rethymnon – Crete Crete, at over eight and a quarter thousand square kilometres, is the largest and most highly populated of the Greek islands and almost an island nation in its own right. With its rich history, diverse geology and population, living in reasonable sized costal cities all the way through to tiny hamlets and mountain crofts, there is plenty... More

They have got this place just right. Studio, but excellent lay out make it feels larger. Every detail thought about down to a clock on the wall to an excellent shower and the ability to have the door open with a screen to prevent unwanted insect intruders! Recycling also. We loved the freedom of GPS guided walks and will be... More
