Set a short distance from the village of Platanias, just outside Rethymno on the northern coast of Crete, Trefon Apartments are an ideal base from which to explore this beautiful island.
The apartments are a 5-minute walk from the Platanias, with its tavernas, bars and markets, and the area’s Blue Flag beach is a 2-minute walk away. Drive an hour east for the Palace of Knossos, the ancient Minoan capital, or an hour west for Hania, a picturesque town that’s a mix of Venetian and Ottoman history and architecture. Or head south to explore the island’s spectacular mountains and coastline. If you’re staying closer to home, nearby Rethymno is “one of Crete’s most delightful towns” (Lonely Planet) and a 10-minute drive from the apartment complex.
All apartments are equipped with a full kitchen and Platanias village has plenty of places to eat, but if you’re too chilled out to move, lunch and dinner are served in the restaurant. A buffet breakfast, which focuses on local produce, is served daily in the breakfast lounge, and the pool bar serves snacks and cocktails throughout the day. Facilities include two outdoor swimming pools, one children’s pool, an indoor heated pool, and beach sunbeds and umbrellas. The hotel also offers complimentary WiFi access.
There is a variety of apartment types, including studios, 2 and 3-room apartments, and Superior Apartments, which sleep up to six people. All have a balcony and some are on two storeys -- a good option for families.
