Welcome to Maroulas

If you’re into herbs, aromatherapy, organic teas or natural beauty products, make the 10km drive southeast of Rethymno to Maroulas, a pretty, higgledy-piggledy village with panoramic sea views. The protected town has a mix of nicely restored late Venetian and Turkish architecture, including 10 olive presses and a 44m tower jutting above the village. After stocking up on healthy herbs, have lunch at a cheerful outdoor restaurant.
