Location & area
Eating Out only 5kms away
You will never tire of tavernas, bars and restaurants close to Agia Triada. Stratos's taverna in Tsesmes is particularly recommended - many English people go there for the excellent great value food, the atmosphere, very reasonable drinks and the welcome you receive. The service is terrific and the owner and his wife are very accommodating. If it's not on the menu, just ask!
For a Traditional English breakfast, try Stavros's Kellari restaurant in Platanes. It is about 50 metres from Galaxy Car Hire on the right hand side and serves breakfast from about 10.00 am. Very good value, and handy for the supermarket - the best in Platanes is right across the street from the restaurant. Also Lidl is only round the corner where you can get most of your shopping
Rethymnon only 7kms away
Overflowing with history and its amazing Venetian and Turkish architecture, Rethymnon is built around the harbour with its bustling harbour life. This traditional town is packed with atmosphere, the second largest in Crete, where narrow, shop-lined alleyways and beautiful old houses mix with bars, restaurants and tavernas. There is a lively nightlife here with a range of discos and clubs, if you fancy a night out. The beachfront promenade boasts more shops, bars and tavernas. The beach, which extends east for 14 kms, starts in the middle of the town. If you decide to eat in Rethymnon, you must try the fish dishes; the freshly caught fish is mouth-watering!
Heraklion 80kms away
The capital of Crete, and the main airport and port for the island, Heraklion is more of a touristy town with the usual trappings. But if you ignore these, you will find an amazing amount of the island's history, myths and legends in the museums and you will be able to experience more of the spectacle of Crete's architectural heritage. Most of the history of the Minoa era can be found in the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion.
Just south of Heraklion is the Palace of Knossos. If the Minoan myths, legends and culture are of interest to you, spend some time here. If it doesn't interest you, visit anyway, you will be inspired!
The longest gorge in Europe at 18 kms is very well known for its incredible beauty. The gorge is only 3 metres wide at some points along the route and the sides of the gorge rise to a height of some 600 metres. A stream flows through the gorge between the White Mountains and the Volikas mountain. Approximately 43 km south of the town of Chania, hiking through the Samaria Gorge is only allowed between May to October.
This small village, about 27 kms southwest of Rethymnon, is close to the ancient site of Lappa, which is currently being excavated. So far finds have dated from the Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods, and are on show at the Rethymnon Archaeological and Historical Museum. Argiroupoli's other feature is it's waterfalls, the tavernas at the bottom use the water for drinking and also for keeping the fish for the fish dishes. The scene is beautifully green and peaceful; the tavernas are nearly all under the trees so they are cool. You can climb (rather steep!) up to the village if you want some spectacular views. Definitely worth a visit.
A local beauty spot (this is a beautiful lake in a mountain bowl) and a picturesque suntrap. There are Tavernas, shops and a beach. You can also take a boat out across the Lake, or go snorkelling. The water in the summer looks emerald. In December, it has been warm enough to eat a meal out in the open by the Lake.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
