Larger supermarkets, including a LIDL, can be found on your way to the beach resort "Platanes" at a distance of 4,5km, offering an elaborated tourist infrastructure of restaurants, cafes, tourist shops, etc... Summer night clubs and bars are concentrated along the Platanes beach road. Taverns serving typical fresh Cretan dishes can be found on the way to Arkadi at a short distance offering good quality for price value.

10km from Rethymno on the road to the Monastery of Arkadi and 2km from the central axis running through the northern Crete and joins the cities of Heraklion and Chania is this beautiful village.

An important aspect is that Rethymno is situated on the midway point of the island. This means that whether you go west towards Chania or East towards Heraklion, the distance is almost the same and your visit to various parts of the island is quick and less tiring.

There is so much variety of beauty and nature that one is never bored. The mild Mediterranean climate together with the famous Cretan diet offers good health and healthy living.
Within just a short distance of 1-8 km from the property, you will find Taverns, Bars, Supermarket, Chemist, Police Station and many more different types of stores for shopping.

Arkadi Monastery
Due to the holocaust it suffered in 1866, this has become the island's most famous monastery. It lies on a low plateau, 23km from the town of Rethymnon.

Built during the last Venetian period, it consists of a large set of fortress-like buildings. The main building included the cells, the warehouses where the agricultural products were treated and stored, the stables. In a word, it was a well-equipped little fortress where people could find refuge in times of trouble.

The elaborate central entrance was restored just four years after the 1866 explosion. It leads to the interior court, through a vaulted passage. In the middle of the court, stands the impressive church, with its two naves dedicated to Saint Constantine and Saint Helen, and to Our Lord. Completed in 1587, its façade clearly shows the different currents in the development of Cretan art during the 16th and 17th centuries.

In the south-west corner of the church, one can still see a section of the burnt iconostasis that survived the 1866 holocaust.

The church is surrounded by a large and roomy precinct and the vaulted passages with their row of arches have retained their grandeur. The cells on the three sides of the court and the communal rooms on the north side are impressively austere.

The history of the monastery goes back to Byzantine times, when a monk, possibly named Arkadios, founded the monastery which in turn was named after him. Already in the 16th century the monastery played an important role in the cultural life of Crete. There were many copyist monks, a rich library and a school.

The Turkish invasion reduced its cultural activities for a while, but the Arkadi Monastery was able to recover promptly and received a unique privilege among Greek monasteries: the Turks allowed the ringing of its bells.
 
The monastery proved to be not only a remarkable cultural centre, but also played an all-important role in the fight against the Turks: when the Turkish Army (15.000 men) surrounded the monastery in November 1866, 300 fighting men and 600 hundred women and children had taken refuge in it.

When the walls were tumbling down and the Turks began the massacre, one of the rebels, Kostis Giamboudakis, blew up the powder magazine and the sky-high explosion reduced the monastery to a pile of rubble. This heroic feat is considered one of the greatest in Cretan history and has turned the Arkadi Monastery into one of Europe's Monuments to Freedom. There's a museum in the monastery with many impressive relics of the 1866 Holocaust and some beautiful icons. Many efforts have been made for the restoration of the monastery in the last years; and two monks live there.
