You can pick up and return your Eurocars rental car for your holidays in Rethymnon in Crete at the airport of Heraklion or the airport of Chania, or at the ports of Heraklion, Rethymnon and Chania/Souda, or straight at your hotel in Rethymnon.
Rethymnon is a port town on the western north coast of Crete. She is the capital of the governmental district of the same name which spreads along the north coast from the Almirou Bay to the village of Sisses, and includes the fishing villages of Plakias and Agia Galini on the south coast as well.
The small inland town of Spili and the large mountain village of Anogia on the northern flank of the Ida Mountains also belong to the same district.
Rethymnon is since the year one said to be the cultural center of the island of Crete. In modern times, the arts faculty of the University of Crete took its seat here, and the presence of students from all over Greece had considerable influence on the social ambience of the Old Town.
A sandy beach of 12 kms length spreads from the town center eastwards along the bay of Rethymnon, and the hotel suburbs line up here like pearls on a string. Most popular are the villages of Platanias and Adelianos Campos approx. in the center of the bay, as well as Stavromenos and Scaleta by its eastern edge.
