Rethymno Province in detail

Sleeping

Rethymno Province offers a very good standard of locally owned accommodation. There are superb boutique choices, including some in converted 16th-century Venetian stone buildings, and others that focus squarely on preserving the traditional Cretan way of life. Budget travellers have good options, too, with a couple of quality hostels, as well as comfortable, well-priced family-run pensions with plenty of local flavour.
