Things to do

Chania Old Town:

The charming Old Town of Chania is something to be enjoyed. Narrow, winding streets are dotted with shops, restaurants, and cafés where travellers can stroll and relax. This part of Chania was established by the Venetians and one can definitely see and feel the Italian influence.

The Fortress of Frangokastello:

The Frangokastello Fortress was built between the period 1371 - 1374 BC and was set up along the coast as a military base for the Venetian army. It is rectangular in shape with massive towers at the corner, and there is an impressive gate with the Venetian coat of arms.

Oldest Lighthouse in Greece:

Greece's oldest lighthouse can be found in the old harbour of Chania. This, like much of the city, was originally constructed by the Venetians. However when the Turks ruled the city, they bequeathed Crete to the Egyptians. Parts of this lighthouse were rebuilt to suit their style, making the lighthouse truly unique.

The Beach of Platanias Chania:

The Beach of Platanias is located approximately seven miles from Chania. It is one of Crete's most developed beach and resort areas. Water activities such as snorkelling, water skiing, and boat tours are plentiful on this Blue Flag certified beach. There are also a number of shops, bars, and restaurants nearby.

The Naval Museum:

Chania's Naval Museum (also called Maritime Museum) is a great place to learn about the history of Crete. Visitors can view a multitude of models of ancient ships, a model of the original fortifications and war relics as well as artefacts dating back to the Bronze Age.

The Castle of Gramvoussa:

The remote island of Gramvoussa is easily reached from Chania and is home to an impressive castle dating back to Medieval times. The castle was built by the Venetians in 1579 and though a bit difficult to reach, the view of the Aegean Sea from the castle is truly breathtaking.

Wonderful

5 of 5
A unique place to stay, comfortable and very well-equipped, perched in a perfect position among olive trees in the hills to glimpse the sea down at Sougia. The best of both worlds, so quiet at the house yet only 5 minutes in the car to swim in the sea and enjoy something to eat in laid-back Sougia. Corinne is a fabulous host who has thought of everything for a comfortable stay.

Beautiful villa with amazing views

4 of 5
The villa was excellent just a few minor things that could be improved. The swimming pool was quite cold initially but ok once in. The location was just what we wanted nice and quiet but within east reach of all facilities. Jimmy who looked after the villa could not of been more helpful Almyrida is a great resort We will definitely use HomeAway again
