Grand Leoniki is located in Platanes which is a Rethymnon (Crete) prefecture - the smallest and most sparsely inhabited compared to the other three on the island. This prefecture is the center of folk art, especially weaving and embroidering in Anoyia, as well as ceramics which have been mainly developed around the small picturesque village of Margarita. The resort offers guests a chance to relax and use the swimming pool and enjoy water sports as well as the bars and restaurant. Among sites worth visiting in Rethymnon is the Venetian castle called Fortezza, a masterpiece of Palatian architecture.
