Chania, Crete’s second biggest town is on the North West Coast which is the greenest part of the island. The town is surrounded by a landscape of fertile plains, dramatic mountains, deep gorges and lovely beaches. It is a place of two halves: the buzzing modern town and the atmospheric Old Town, with well-preserved reminders of its Venetian and Turkish past. The ancient Venetian-style harbour with its lighthouse and fortress draws thousands of visitors to the town every day during the summer season. This is a great place to enjoy classic Cretan dishes and watch the sun go down over the water.

Rethymnon is an interesting town on the North Coast of Crete between Chania and Heraklion. It has all the right ingredients for your holiday – a rich history and culture, a romantic harbour and old town with great seafood restaurants and buzzing nightlife, a huge, central sandy beach with water sports galore, and impressive mountain scenery with charming villages to explore. Like most of the island, Rethymnon has a wonderful past, and this is clearly reflected in the architecture of the old town, where mosques and Christian churches are next to Renaissance buildings overlooked by a huge Venetian fortress. The Venetians also left their mark in in Arkadiou Street, where they built elegant mansions that reflected their wealth and culture. The town has many interesting shops and great places for a long lazy lunch.

The Firkas Fortress at the western point of Rethymnon harbour was built in 1629, but today it is the home of The Maritime Museum of Crete, full of paintings and models of ships, nautical instruments, historical photographs and war relics. Crete was ruled by Turkey until 1913, when the Turkish flag was exchanged for the Greek flag here at Firkas Fortress, when the whole island celebrated the union of Crete with Greece.

Kournas Lake, 17 miles west of Rethymnon, is the only freshwater lake in Crete. The little lake is a beautiful sight, fed by streams from the White Mountains that surround it. This important wetland is a protected environment, and home to ducks, eels, water snakes, terrapins, herons and cormorants. Temporary beaches appear in the summer months when the water level drops, and then the sun loungers, umbrellas and pedalos appear. You can make a full circuit around the lake during the summer, which takes no more than an hour.

Private Transfers In Crete

As most of our clients collect and return cars to the airport, we have excluded private transfer costs in our prices. The cost per private transfer from or to the airport is shown below.If there are four of you travelling with a lot of luggage, it might be wise to book a larger transfer. Remember that all babies, infants and children count as 'People' and must be securely seated.If you require child seats these are only available in larger transfers for 5-8 people at a charge of £5.00 each way. They must be booked at the same time when making your transfer booking.Unfortunately our supplier cannot provide child seats in private transfers for 1-4 people, so you will need to take your own. However the seat must be able to be fitted in the private transfer vehicle using the vehicle seat belts. It is your responsibility to fit it.
