Coast / Beach : a long sandy beach can be found at approx 5 kilometers with local bars & restaurants. Water sports are available in the summer months. However there are many beautiful beaches all over the island catering all needs - busy, secluded, whatever you are looking for, you won't have far to go.
Travel : the holiday accommodation is located on the road to the village of Aghios Dimitrios in a peaceful and beautiful countryside area. Rethymnon with it's pretty, often vibrant Venetian port and old town is approx 12km away; offering bus services to Heraklion / Knossos, Chania, Samaria gorge, all roughly an hour away. Lake Kourna is about 20 minutes away and is well worth a visit. Arkadi monastery, well known for it's history is a short drive away.
Distance: the vacation house is ...
There is a free parking spot in front of the villa.
The bus stop is located at 180 meters walking distance. In order to reach the beach at 'Platanes' village or to reach the town center of Rethymno, you can take the bus lines serving the villages 'Arkadi - Loutra - Mesi - Kirianna*. These buses operate from the morning, early hours, up to about 22:30 PM. The service times changes depending of the seasons.
Rent a car with pick-up and drop-off at the airport for the duration of your stay. Except of the high seasons months, renting a car is not more expensive than using public buses and/or taxi to reach the villa at arrival/departure and for your entire stay you will be mobile and you can really discover the beauties of this island.
