The more energetic members of the group might like an early morning walk to the nearby tiny village of Agia Triada to buy bread and honey for breakfast.

This holiday villa has the advantage of being located in the Cretan countryside but only 3km from the sandy beach of Platanes. It is located midway along the island of Crete which is ideal if you are want to visit famous historical sites such as the Palace of Knossos, the Monastery of Arkadi, the Preveli Palm Beach and the old historical town of Rethymnon.

Rethymnon is 10km away, a 10-15 minute drive by car. This lively, ancient city shows architectural evidence of earlier occupation by the Venetians and the Turks. The Venetian fortress is the largest in the world.

You might like to swim and sunbathe on the long sandy beach in the morning and afterwards make your way through the ancient alleyways of the old quarter to the harbour browsing in the many boutiques and shops as you go. Find a taverna overlooking the harbour and enjoy traditional Cretan cuisine over a long, lazy lunch. For that special evening out you might want to dine in one of the many restaurants that can be found in Rethymnon.
