In addition to a pleasant climate with sunshine throughout the year, a unique location and landscape with high mountains and blue sea next to each other, friendly and curious residents, Crete and especially the area around Rethymnon offers a vibrant tradition that that accompanies the traveler always and everywhere. Weddings with 1,000 or more guests, the hierarchical family structure with them wise women and dominant men, with children who take early responsibility in rural Crete, the good company of people in small and larger groups called Parea, life in summer outside of the house on the Platia, the village square, is living tradition.
Tradition in the sense of "Preserving the Good" is lived here easily. Be it the unprejudiced involvement of church and religion into daily life or the natural helpfulness, traditional hospitality in however all commercial accommodation or the absolute primacy of the family, tradition is always present. It is constantly innovating and always finds new expression under the changing conditions of everyday life. Be it respect or contempt, commonality or dispute, everything is somehow in seemingly regulated understandable tracks. The "somehow get along together" is more important than the law. Creativity is a must. Even politicians who have grossly failed get a second chance.
We are a group of marketing experts, web designers, hotel managers and travel agents who have one thing in common: We love Rethymnon because of her great historic past turned into stone in the many old traditional buildings and narrow streets from the Venetian period. We love her also because of her lively presence with a very special kind of tourism, which again and again shows Cretan hospitality. Finally, we firmly believe that despite all past and present crises Rethymnon has a bright future, precisely because of that special way in which its inhabitants approach their life and the work in tourism: Always with the view on their fellow men and obedient to the ancient laws of hospitality and respect.
