Welcome to Kalypso Cretan Village Resort and Spa 4*, Plakias - Rethymnon.

It is no wonder that the king of Greek gods, Zeus, chose this area of the island of Crete in the heart of the Mediterranean to live.

According to mythology, Zeus brought Europe in the form of a bull to the amazing Preveli beach, with its palm forest. Nearby, the mythical queen Kalypso lived in caves. Our historical hero Odysseus, excited by the beauty of both nature and Kalypso, stayed with her seven years before returning back to his kingdom and his family.

The Kalypso Cretan Village Resort & Spa is situated at Plakias, 31 km south of Rethymnon and 115 km of Heraklion Airport.

Karavos beach is an impressive natural park, where towering rocks (fjords) form an important observation area in the centre of the Mediterranean as well as a hidden sea inlet, which used to be a pirate shelter 300 years ago and is now popular for short visits.
