Rethymnon Prefecture, Crete
This 19th century traditional home is located in the village of Merona in the “Paggaliana” neighbourhood and to reach it you walk through narrow street surrounded by huge rocks.

About the neighbourhood
THE RETHYMNO / AMARI AREA

Rethymnon (city population 30.000) is located in the centre of Crete, offering easy access to the whole island. It combines endless sandy beaches and crystal clear waters along with amazing landscapes in the mountains.

Among a wide range of historical monuments, the most renowned is Rethymnon's Old town. Being the best preserved Venetian town in Greece, it is a charming blend of Renaissance and Ottoman architecture with narrow streets, mosques, piazzas and fountains.

The scenic Amari valley, in the heart of Crete, lies between 2 mountains: Psiloritis (Idi) and Kedros, both belonging to the Natura 2000 protected areas. The clean environment and the healthy climate are ideal for relaxing, walking, climbing, cycling, or exploring by car. Numerous paths, starti...
