Holiday Review:

The villa which was previously an olive press and has been beautifully renovated. The photo do not really do it justice. The bedrooms are huge The village of Armeoni was a short stroll from the villa were we discovered a lovely traverna were we ate 4 times. The supermarkets are well stocked and the local could not be more helpful. A special delight for us all was the lady next door providing us with newly laid eggs and tomatoes from her garden.

Great place to be!

  • 5 of 5

That place was just great! I could talk hours about it, but let me just tell you we have been to many places in Greece and this one has the atmosphere we were always looking for. Im not sure if this is a perfect family destination, but for a group of friends in mid 30's - the best!

Archontiko Galliaki is located in the pretty traditional village of Agios Georgios, just 7km away from Rethymno.

Rethymnon is on Crete's north coast and ranks as the island's cultural centre being home to several museums, to the philosopical branch of the University of Crete, and other famous landmarks. The Fortezza, a fortress from the Venetian era, overlooks the picturesque Port of Rethymnon which is framed by the modern port's piers. The Old Venetian Town radiates out from the fortress along narrow lanes with small shops, arts and crafts workshops, restful bars, and numerous restaurants. Every Thursday, the port hosts the legendary weekly market of Rethymnon.

Crete's coastlineoffers with numerous coves, bays and peninsulas.

19km far from Chania in the West, just off the Old National Road to Kissamos (Kastelli), you will find the beach of Tavronitis. The beach is an easy short stroll from the village centre. This can be one of the emptiest and quietest beaches in this stretch of coast west of Chania. Tavronitis beach is pebbly and very quiet indeed, a very relaxing place bordered by trees.

Platanias Beach

Platanias is a sandy beach very popular and crowded, especially in July and August. Being at the northern coast, it is affected by the 'meltemia' (northern summer winds).The beach is well organised, offering accommodation facilities, food and drink at the sea front tavernas and bars, facilities for swimming and sunbathing (sun beds, umbrellas, sea sports etc) are also available .

Gerani Beach

The long sandy beach on the north of the village is awarded the Blue Flag every year. It is partly organised (not crowded) and provides all kinds of facilities such as sun beds, umbrellas, showers, W.C. and sea sports. The blue of the sea joins with the blue or starry sky in calmness and passion.
