Flora and fauna
People visiting Crete can dive into the abundance of exotic plants and animals, wild forests, deep ravines, rare plants, and flowers. Crete is the home of a rich variety of flora that contains, among many hundreds of others, 130 species of wild flowers and herbs which are unique to the island. Among these are dictamo (Organium dictamus), a herb made famous by Aristotle for its medicinal value. Another unusual feature is an evergreen variety, Varietus cretica.
The fauna of Crete is as equally diverse as the flora of Crete with many endemic and rare species of bird, animal and marine life to be found. The seas around Crete - the Mediterranean, Aegean, Ionian and Libyan are full of a wide array of marine life.
Being in Crete gives a wonderful opportunity to see some of the rarest European birds of prey with ease. The magnificent Cretan Golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetus) and the Lammergeyer (Gypaetus barbatus), a subspecies unique to Crete, stand out among the birds to be spotted here.
Accommodation is based in Rethymno, town located in the middle between two largest cities in Crete: Chania and Heraklion. The old town of Rethymno is one of the best-preserved towns of the Renaissance and it combines the oriental features of the Turkish period with Renaissance-style Venetian architecture. The center of activities in Rethymno's Old Town and it's port is the most popular spot of the town! It is lined with cafeterias and restaurants, while the seafront promenade is perfect for evening strolls.
The modern city of Chania, located about 1h drive from the accommodation extends well beyond the old town. What most of visitors usually want to see is located within the Venetian fortification wall in the old town thought. These are: the Venetian harbour and its many cafés and restaurants, museums, churches, Minoan excavations, narrow alleys with picturesque houses, the famous lighthouse, the covered market and many shops, some of which offer very interesting products.
Going to Heraklion will take around 1h15m. The sea, the area's antiquities, excellent food - coffee, and friendly welcoming people make this contemporary town a delightful place to visit. Wander around the bazaars of Heraklion and take in the rich colors, tantalizing smells, and intense flavors. The Pateles open market is a melting pot of Heraklion society and sells everything from spices to books to leather. It’s loud and lively chaos is a must-have experience when visiting the capital of Crete, and it is frequented by long-term travelers.

Frequently asked questions for this offer
What happens after I make a reservation?
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the housing?
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.
Can I see my chosen accommodation in person before I sign the lease agreement?
Your time is precious. That's why we've added a virtual tour option to our platform so you can see some of the rentals listed on Flatio from the comfort of your own home.
If a virtual tour isn't available for the accommodation you've chosen, you can contact the landlord and ask them if they're willing to give you a personal tour of the rental unit.
If you move in and find that the rented accommodation doesn't match the information on Flatio at the time the reservation request was sent to the landlord, you can withdraw from the lease agreement under certain circumstances explained in this article in our help center.
Also, under our "secure move-in" policy, we'll assist you with moving to an alternative accommodation if you report within a certain period of time that the rental unit doesn't match the ad and the landlord doesn't fix the problem immediately. You can read the details in our help center.
How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card, payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancelation policy).
