Rethymnon - Roussospiti / West Crete

distance distance distance distance distance

There are two different roads leading to Roussospiti.

The shorter one (approx. 6 kms) branches off the Old National Road inside ▶ Rethymnon East of the town center and first runs up to the quarter of Kallithea ("beautiful view").

It then underpasses the New National Road and climbs up to the nunnery of Aghia Irini ("St. Irene") and the hamlet of the same name.
distance Roussospiti: Signpost by the branch in Rethymnon (from East)
From Aghia Irini, the road runs towards the South-East, winds around some hills and arrives at the western village entrance of ▶ Roussospiti.
distance Roussospiti: Signpost at the highway exit of Misiria and Amari
The longer approach road to Roussospiti (approx. 7 kms) starts in Misiria which is a village East of Rethymnon by the Old National Road.

The New National Road has an exit there, and the country road first runs towards Hromonastiri. High above the coast, the road to Roussospiti branches off to the right hand side and leads to the eastern village entrance.

The Thimonies Villas are on a hill exactly above the eastern village entrance and enjoy uncomparable views of the coast and the Aegean Sea.
The surroundings are very peaceful and have many olive groves and fruit tree plantations.
They invite to hikes above the bay, e.g. on the "E4" hiking trail to Mt. Vrissinas (585 meters).

When continuing the road from the holiday villas further into the village, you will first pass the mini market, then a taverna, then the school, then the second taverna, and then Roussospiti already comes to it's western end.

The nearest sandy beaches spread along the bay in Rethymnon and it's eastern suburbs over a distance of almost 15 kms.
