Episkopi is a small town of the prefecture of Rethymno, at 22.5 km from the city of Rethymno on the way to Chania, owing its prosperity to the area’s vineyards and olive groves.The village itself is a small maze of narrow alleyways converging onto a square where the old church is the focus of social life, with traditional cafes where the village elders gather in the shade to talk politics sipping their raki. There is easy access to the beach which is sandy, clear and organized, also called Episkopi Beach.The name Episcopi means bishopric, and is common to many villages in Crete, that used to be bishopric seats in the past. The area’s religious tradition is prevalent, by the omnipresent presence of churches, some of them with remarkable frescoes. The village of Episkopi is fairly old, and is mentioned in the island's archives as having 446 inhabitants before 1583. If you are looking for accommodation in the area, keep in mind that there are superb villas for rent, catering to the eclectic traveller.
