Nothing brings an old flame to life as a romantic getaway with your loved one. The daily routine can be killing for your relation, so add a romantic spark to your lives en take your loved one to one of the most romantic places in the world: Rethymnon in Crete.

Romantic arrangements in Rethymnon
The prices in this country are relatively low, so you can still afford everything and even allow yourself a decadent splurge. Why not book one of our lovely pool suites or even a pool villa for a touch of luxury? You can also arrange some little details. For example you can make sure your room is decorated with beautiful flowers or that there is a cooled bottle of champagne waiting for you. Do mention your romantic intentions when you make your reservation, our staff will be happy to help you.

Beaches at Rethymnon and Kissamos Castelli
The island of Crete offers lots of water sport activities, such as windsurfing, kitesurfing and diving. If all this seems too much effort, you can also just lie on one of the many beaches. Luckily, in a place like the beautiful island of Crete, you are literally surrounded by a plethora of beaches! Some may be a little crowded, but at least they have several little shops and taverns. The beaches at Rethymnon and the harbour at Kissamos Castelli are good examples of popular beaches. You can lose yourself in the crowd, buy some nice souvenirs in the shops and take a cool drink at one of the taverns at hand.

Quiet beaches in Crete
If you prefer more quiet beaches you can go to the Damnoni Beach 30km to the south, the Menies beach at the tip of the peninsula near Diktynna or to the Achlia Beach. Crete also has other beautiful quiet beaches, such as the Falassarna Beach and the Paleochora Beach. Both are particularly known for the lovely sunsets with which their westerly facing orientation endows them. Remember that if you go to one of these quiet beaches, you’ll need to pack some food and water, for there are hardly any shops or taverns there.

Beautiful Greek surroundings
Of course there is more to Crete than a collection of sun-drenched beaches. There are also windswept cliffs and rocky coves that make a great backdrop for a romantic stroll. Remember the film Mama Mia, when Donna sings “The winner takes it all”, before running up the stairs to the tiny Greek whitewashed chapel at the top of the towering rock? Well, while Crete cannot offer you THAT particular rock (it is located on another Greek island, Skopelos some hundreds of miles to the north,) we do have some similar dramatic (and far less touristic) “locations” for your own love scene.

Where to go for a romantic dinner?
Another great highlight of your romantic holiday in Crete will be the food and drink. Our staff can help you schedule a romantic dinner for two at the hotel. On at least one occasion you are bound to fancy other local eateries. Crete has a million great places to eat and Rethymnon has quite a good range of restaurants such as the Minares Taverna, or others along Sofokli Venizelou Street.
