Additional information

Hemelsbreed measured Crete 260 kilometers long and its width varies from 13 to 50 kilometers. The island is divided from west to east into four provinces: Chania, Rethymnon, Heraklion and Lasithi. The north coast is hilly and has many beautiful sandy beaches and bays. The south coast is more volatile, high mountain peaks here and there sharply into the air. In the mountains are many caves, deep canyons and spectacular gorges. Overall, the mountains from west to east can be divided into four mountain ranges. The highest of them are Western Crete. These are the Lefka Ori, literally white mountains, and Idi or Psiloritis mountains. Several of these peaks reaching far above the 2,000 meters and remain in the spring long covered with snow. But not why they are called white mountains. This name they have due to the light rock from which they are constructed. The name Crete is related to the word chalk. Equally impressive is a journey through the Lasithi plateau north of the Dikti Mountains. Here are many windmills scattered over the plain. They are of Venetian origin and care for centuries to irrigate the fields. About fields speaking, the plain of Messara in the south, along the Bay, is a fertile region known as the breadbasket of Crete called. The mountains have many, impressive gorges. The vegetation it is often unique. Some of these gorges are accessible. Excursions are offered an interesting trip through the gorges, under the guidance of an experienced guide possible. The Cretans are an obstinate people, stubborn, and absolutely loyal. Plenty of Greek with the Greeks but first Cretan. Now, in the more densely populated areas, perhaps less obvious, but who is a journey through the quiet villages in the mountains is, there will be something of tests. For a Cretan is an honor a guest, Xenos, in-house. It is significant that both the word xenos stranger as a guest means. A xenos is of everything offered, especially raki, an indigenous, very strong drink.
"The city of Hercules", is a city where the past and live together, and where in small classrooms sung with accompaniment of the lyre and santouri, the musical instruments of the island. The archaeological museum in Heraklion is the only museum in the world where pure Minoan art (finds from palaces of Knossos and Phaistos) are preserved, such as ceramics, utensils, jewelry, statues (including the snake goddess) and frescoes from the palaces. From the beautiful gold jewelry, many copies as souvenirs.

The palace complex at Knossos, 5 km outside Heraklion is one of the archaeological sites where restoration and reconstruction variance has occurred. The whole complex of excavations, with an area of ??2.5 hectares includes the remains of a luxurious palace in ancient times perhaps five floors with nearly 1,500 rooms counted. The palace was decorated with colorful paintings. In huge stock cellars were beautifully painted jars for wine, grain and oil found. Most original finds are housed in the archaeological museum in Heraklion, the reconstruction is used replicas. The palace had such a complex layout that he believed that the archaeologist with the original labyrinth was dealing with. This labyrinth Several well-known figures from Greek mythology connected as Minotaur (a monster half man, half bull) the hero Theseus and princess Ariadne, Daedalus and his son Icarus.

Phaistos (Phaistos)
After the ruins of the palace of King Minos at Knossos, Phaistos is situated on the south coast of Crete, the second major city to Minos remember. Here are the foundations, walls and stairs to see a large Minoan palace and the accompanying civil settlement. Because these buildings were not reconstructed - as in Knossos - in Phaistos only foundations, walls and stairs to see.

Other interesting historical tourist places in Crete are:
* Gortys: Roman ruin city with a famous archaic inscription hundred meters (approx. 17,000 characters) on a wall, the so-called "Laws of Gortyna."
* Agia Triada: Excavations of the remains of a Minoan villa (sort of summer palace) with a wealth of artifacts.
* The birth cave of Zeus: One of the many caves on the Lasithi plateau, with now only a few of the thousands of windmills that once stood there.
* Idi Oros (2456 meters): Highest peak of the central mountains of Crete and part of the year covered with snow, where according to mythology, Zeus was raised by the goat Amalthea.
* Arkadi: The monastery at the foot of Mount Ida, museum and symbol of the Cretan struggle for freedom against the Turks because of the mass suicide of the besieged partisans.
* Rethymnon: Port town with Venetian fortress, old (Turkish) houses, small, intimate streets and minarets. Many nice restaurants and the oldest lighthouse in Europe.

Thalassographia, 33 Kefalogiannidon Street Fortezza, Rethymnon
Tel: 28310 52569
The seafront of Rethymnon, situated on the stairs to the Venetian fortress sits Thalassographia. The setting is romantic and there is a panoramic sea view. It's always busy and there is a choice of a very large assortment mezedes (= starters). In addition, some entrees. Greeks love to party with all kinds of snacks to enjoy. The entrees are very worthwhile, choose a piece or 4, maybe 5 and you have a full meal! One of our favorites: feta cheese from the oven!
Joselyne Arraou Spooner:
"A wonderful surrounding for this villa where you can relax and admire the country side! My best memories are the first night in the pool Admiring the starry sky and sipping a glass of white wine left in the fridge for us alongwith greek yogurt, fresh fruit etc. .. Other nights were spent star-spotting lying on the sun beds. Days were spent dico suspension local markets, beaches, walking in the gorges etc. .. You do need a car for staying in this house but the village of Perama is very near and people there are very friendly. If you go back to the Same shops every day you can actually brush up your shaft Greek people are very good teachers! Overall an expensive price to pay at least for us since we went in high season but worth it! Villa Adonis deserves its name too! "

Mr. Alain Robillard:
"We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Adonis. We were there in the last week of June 2009 and everything was perfect. From the warm welcome or Adonis, the perfect setting and the wonderful island of Crete, we loved our visit to Villa Adonis . The house was perfect for our party of 6 (3 adults and 3 children) and the garden and the pool were great. The house was cleaned constantly the middle of the week and was well furnished. We did not lack of anything and we keep very good memories of our stay at Villa Adonis. We hope we will be bootable to come back to this beautiful island. Merci beaucoup et à la prochaine! "

Mr. Jan Gielissen:
"Space, equipment and comfort of a high level, the garden with pool and pretty good location for exploring the region, constitute a guarantee for a successful holiday. We thought it was definitely worth the money, and recommended it already to friends and acquaintances "

    Comfortabel huis met grote tuin met prachtig uitzicht op zee en bergen!

  • Anja Verscheijden, with the family. Gave on an average of 9.6  

    Een heerlijk huis met een prachtige grote tuin, mooi zwembad en uitzicht, en bijna alles wat je nodig hebt is in en rondom het huis aanwezig. De ligging vonden wij ook perfect: lekker rustig en toch redelijk dicht bij alle voorzieningen en het strand. Goede uitvalsbasis ook voor bijna alle highlights op Kreta. De kers op de taart is het feit dat er maar liefst 2 keer per week wordt schoongemaakt en al het linnengoed wordt vervangen.
    De boxsprings in de slaapkamers zijn van erg goede kwaliteit.
    De verhuurders zijn uitermate vriendelijk, behulpzaam en benaderbaar. Wij kijken terug op 2 prachtige weken!! Chapeau :-)

  • Frans , with the family. Gave on an average of 8.6  

    Mooie compact vakantiehuis met grote tuin en een heerlijk privézwembad. Zeer klantvriendelijke verhuurder deed zeer haar best om het ons naar de zin te maken en ons een onbezorgde vakantie te bezorgen.
    Het vakantiehuis is rustig gelegen maar je hebt wel een auto nodig om naar het dichtstbijzijnde dorp te rijden.
    Al met al zeer zeker een aanrader!
