The Neighbourhood

Somatas is a small, quiet village (161 people ) near Rethymno, which lies 5 km south of the coast and is still close enough to main highways to reach a wide range of destinations. It has easy access from 3 different points. Two km away is the larger village of Armeni with a petrol station, supermarket, pharmacy, small regional cafes and local restaurants, where you can enjoy the unique Cretan cuisine. About 4 km away is the University of Crete campus (Humanities, Economics and Psychology Departments).

Renting a car is essential to explore Crete in all its glory.
