This 16thC Venetian mansion (actually two old venetian buildings knocked into one around a courtyard with a pretty swimming pool) is on a quiet back street in a picturesque old part of Rethymno, but within easy walking distance of the beaches, harbour, cafes, restaurants and sights of the city.
   Nadia Paranski, owner of the Mythos Suites, has restored the building with painstaking attention to detail since the mid 1990s. Arched doorways give access to a sunny courtyard. Rooms on the upper floors have private wooden balconies, whilst those surrounding the pool have verandahs adjoining the courtyard. All studios and suites are furnished with pretty traditional furniture and imaginative use has been made of original features.
