HORSEBACK RIDING IN CRETE FOR AMAZING HOLIDAYS


We invite you to enjoy peaceful horse and pony riding amongst the small hills and olive groves as well as the beautiful beaches of Plakias, in the south coast of Crete for unforgettable riding holidays!!
The stables are located in Damnoni, Plakias in an six-hectare area, just 30 Km (25 min driving time) away from the city of Rethimnon, Crete. 


RIDING TOURS
All the riding tours on the beaches of Plakias, the olive groves, or the surrounding mountains are amazing and very picturesque. The scenery with it's beautiful flora and fauna is very enjoyable to take at an easy pace, but also suitable for active riding.
Our guests can select one or more of the following riding tours:
  • DAMNONI-AMOUDI BEACH RIDE:This ride takes our guests over an amazing path near the sea including the amazing sandy beaches of Damnoni and Amoudi.
  • PLAKIAS BEACH RIDE:On this ride our guests enjoy the horse riding through the beautiful countryside of Plakias, with the olive and orange groves, over several hills and the sandy beach of Plakias.
  • PANORAMA RIDE: This ride takes our guests into the mountains arround Plakias, following the meandering "Avlaka". Avlakas is a waterchannel which provides all the fields of the area with water starting from the springs of the "Kourtaliotis" River in the mountains.
  • EAST MOUNTAIN RIDE: This ride also follows the "Avlaka", but this time in the other direction. We go over hills and through valleys rich with Crete's flora and fauna. 
  • Stables also have a min-izoo with a great variety of wild and domestic animals, like turtles, ducks, chicken, rabbits, goats and sheep, deer, peacocks, donkeys and mini Shetlanders. We also have a few kri-kri's, the Cretan wild goats!!

Plakias: A paradise You Mustn’t Keep Waiting….



For some strange reason, up until recently Plakias had not enjoyed the wide tourist turnout that other travel destinations in Southwest of Crete, like big cities.
  It was a hidden secret for a select group of initiated travelers who would come to enjoy nature’s majestic beauty and the locals’ genuine hospitality far from the crowds of noisy tourists.
But the secret got out……..
And now it’s time that the rest of us discover the untamed beauty of Plakias!!

One hundred years have passed since the first Rethymno Carnival in Crete, Greece. The Carnival will once again open the tourist season on the Greek island, which means one more reason for the municipality of Rethymno to celebrate. - See more at: http://greece.greekreporter.com/2014/02/05/crete-rethymno-carnival-brings-thousands-of-tourists/#sthash.KE8RVpLe.dpuf

  Since 1914 beautiful Renaissance Rethymnon has been celebrating the carnival with its many humoristic events. A carnival of another era leaving behind its nostalgic aroma of romantic balls and the Rethymnians through laughter and their comical antics paying their tribute to "His Excellence, The King of the Carnival."
The Treasure Hunt, an old custom dating back to when the Carnival of Rethymno began about a century ago, was the reason for the creation of 'teams' in 1990, which would give birth once again to this age-old tradition.
 In 1993, the Municipality of Rethymnon decided to help fund this popular event and requested the teams to take on the challenging task of creating and organising the Carnival of Rethymnon, which has become the most popular and famous Carnival of Crete!!!!
 (The city is collaborating with several travel agencies of the municipality in order to offer good, cheap travel packages throughout the tourist season of the Carnival)
