Adele and nearby Adelianos Kampos in the region of Rethymnon is a traditional village & beach resort. A mix of old and new and traditional and modern characterise this area of the Greek Island of Crete. Just 8km from the historic town of Rethymnon and on the road leading to the famous Arkadi Monastery, it is an ideal location for a holiday to explore the many Crete attractions.
Adele is in fact an inland village
just above the beach area known as Adelianos Kampos.
Adelianos Kampos is one of the best beach resorts in Crete because of its long and sandy beach and it has plenty of choice in terms of bars, restaurants and budget hotels. It also has a few luxury hotels with all inclusive options.
Adelianos Kampos is adjacent to the equally popular beach resort of Platanes.
You are spoilt for choice for 5 star luxury hotels in Adelianos Kampos including the Carme Villas, the Aquila Rithymna Beach Hotel, the Caramel Grecotel Boutique Resort and the White Palace Grecotel Luxury Resort.
There are also a few budget hotels including the Adele Beach Hotel and a choice of apartments, studios and rooms to rent. You’ll also find private villas in the village and its surrounding areas of Rethymnon.
Many of the restaurants in Adelianos Kampos offer great food at value for money prices with genuine Cretan hospitality. The White Lady Family Taverna is a great example of the friendliness, service and good food you get in this beach resort. When we stayed in Adelianos Kampos we also enjoyed Taverna Poppy. But there are many, many restaurants in Adelianos Kampos to choose from.
The best Crete attractions nearby are the Monastery of Arkadi at the foothills of Psiloritis, (Mount Ida) and the historic town of Rethymnon with its marina, quaint old town and Venetian Fort.
You can climb aboard the Happy Train and take a trip to the waterfalls of Argyroupoli which is the perfect way to cool down after hot days on the beach.
Rethymnon prefecture has many popular beach resorts that have also been judged worthy to receive Blue Flags. These include the long stretches of Crete beaches at Adelionos Kampos and Platanes. Because the beach is so long, you will always find a place to stretch out on the golden sands. It never feels too overcrowded.
Flights to Chania Airport make it easy and quick to get to this resort but flights to Heraklion Airport will get you there quicker. Or if you are arriving by sea at the Souda Port at Chania or Heraklion Port, this beach resort is in a great position.
By car, you can reach the town after leaving the New National Road. Served well by the efficient bus service KTEL you can easily get to and from Chania or Heraklion.
