Golf George

runs a ▶ mini golf court in the town of Rethymnon (8 kms) and another one in Adelianos Campos .

Both are large facilities with 18 tracks each, and very comfortable. There are paved paths, flowers and ornamental plants, and all tracks are floored with artificial lawn.

Each track has a small writing-desk and a garden lamp, and in each court's center there is a floodlight pylon.
Furthermore, each facility has a bar which provides ice cream, coffee and other beverage.
Marianna's Workshop

in the tiny mountain village of Maroulas (14 kms) above Adele is a herb shop where tea-mixtures and oil essences from native plants are on offer, which help to allay many complaints in a natural way.

Marianna organizes botanological walks in the village's surroundings on every Wednesday, where she not only shows the native plants and their habitats but also explains about when which plants can be harvested, and why.

The walks start on every Wednesday morning at 10:00 am and take about 4 hours.
The Atlantis Diving Center

has it's main seat at the Rithymna Beach Hotel (12 kms) in Adelianos Campos near Rethymnon.

A branch office is located at the Club Marine Palace Hotel in Panormo.

The Atlantis team offers dive training with PADI standards for beginners as well as for advanced training with diving excursions for experienced divers.
There are no mass dives but safe diving in smaller groups with individual care.

Health Tourism

The dentist Evi Papadaki-Ninou (University of Erlangen-Nuremburg, Germany) has her office in the city of Rethymnon, and just around the corner there is the prosthetic dentistry plant cretadent where they use tools and material from Germany as well.

Holiday-makers who speak English or German can therefore use their vacation for having dental crowns, pontics, dentures etc. manufactured and applied.
Due to the low wage level in Greece, dental prosthesis is much cheaper here.
Weddings in Crete

In Rethymnon in a side lane of the beach road, there is a small enterprise which specializes in professional organization of private events.

Annika Schneider and Caroline Austen who run the "moments" enterprise are experts. They arrange weddings, engagements, vow renewals, honeymoons, anniversaries, baptisms, jubilees, birthdays and other festivities in the entire area of Rethymnon.

And they care for every detail from choosing the appropriate locations and venues up to procuring all essential papers and documents.

Costa Costa's

optician's workshop hides in the Gherakari street in the inner city of Rethymnon.

Costantino Costa passed his professional training in Italy and then worked at Duesseldorf (Germany) for some time before he came to Rethymnon in 1996.

In Greece, the low wage level makes glasses and contact lenses considerably cheaper than in many other countries.
Tools and materials do however not suit for saving expenses, as for quality reasons they are predominantly ordered from Germany and come at their prices.
Friends of Animals - Rethymno, inc.

cares for the animal welfare in the area of Rethymnon. Here in Crete, this predominantly means to find caring owners for stray dogs and cats, mainly abroad.

Many animal lovers already help during their holidays and e.g. drive pets to the airport or volunteer as flight escorts.

More active help is always very welcome, and so are donations.
