Mythical Crete

From world famous beaches and food to action and festivities, Crete is a world of its own! What you will love about this island
is the way that this sense of fusion extends to a family vacation.



Rethymno

The third largest town on Crete, is an intriguing mixture of old-world charm and lively Cretan life. The vivacious atmosphere of the old town is just the place for a stroll on long summer evenings. The different eras and influences on the town can be seen in the unusual architecture and buildings.  Around the picturesque harbour one can see the Venetian influence that later gave way to the Turkish regime. The multitude of bars, cafes, tavernas, kafenions, and discos are guaranteed to provide entertainment to suit everyone's taste.



Panormo village

A small traditional village, lies in the middle of the north axis of Crete, 22 km from Rethymnon and 55 km from Heraklion. At the end of the previous century, Panormo acquired a distinctive fame due to its port which was the exporting centre for agricultural products of the region to Western Europe. The castle of Mylopotamos (Castello di Milopotamo), built by Pescatore in the region and preserved by the Venetians, is known since 1212. In 1341, the Kapsokalyvai besieged the castle where Alexios Kalergis, who was in the service of the Venetians, was, but they did not manage to take it (Xanthoulides, ‘Venetian Rule’). In 1647, the castle was seized by the Turks. The Venetians under Gildasi, the general, tried to retake it in vain. In 1583, it was set alight and destroyed by Barbarossa and his pirates.
