Situated in the central area of Crete on the northern coast, Rethymnon holidays are almost too quaint to be true. One could be easily mistaken in thinking that this resort had been purpose built in a theme park style because of its left over 'old world' influences. Its Old Town inspires visitors with its maze-like alleys that are shadowed by the overhanging balconies, trailing flowers in every colour cascading down to the street. It is also impossible not to notice the left over Venetian and Turkish influences that linger about the town in its architecture and its ambiance, giving the historic centre of the town meaning and heart, whilst still not forgetting its traditional Greek Island heritage.
Recently the package holiday has affected holidays in Rethymnon, not in an offensive way, but the once discreet hotels and apartment complexes are now visible amongst the traditional Greek buildings. Fortunately this spurt of growth did not reach the Old Town, which is still just as perfect as when it was built with its bustling centre full of tavernas, restaurants and souvenir shops. Hiking and mountain biking have become very popular pursuits when on cheap holidays in Rethymnon. They provide the perfect way to get around this beautiful area and to begin to explore the surrounding rolling hills, which offer spectacular views of the whole bay. Just down the coast is one of longest beaches on Crete holidays which begs for holidaymakers to visit and spend long, happy hours basking in the sun or taking part in the water sports. This area is much more focused towards those who enjoy a loud and brash beach holiday, so Rethymnon holidays are perfect for families with children that like the hustle and bustle of the beach but still want some relaxation and culture in the evenings. Holidays in Rethymnon are perfectly located as the resort is perfectly placed for excursions into Heraklion.
Rethymnon is a very pleasant resort in that it caters for all styles and budgets, tastefully and without problems. There are many different styles of accommodation on hand when on your holidays in Rethymnon. These range from basic options for those that wish to explore with a bed for the night in the clean, basic apartment, right through to hotels with private swimming pools, casinos and professional masseurs. Many of the accommodations are linked together so that you can choose your holiday accommodation with the same group that you may know and trust. In this aspect Rethymnon holidays are becoming very modern and it is often thought that it is this new blend of ancient ruins and the new modern infrastructure that makes them so appealing to package holiday customers.Lighthouse image courtesy of SusanneK.Preveli Beach image courtesy of Jorge-11.
