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.

The peace was lovely, with very few people around we mostly had the beach to ourselves. The family run restaurant next door was great, the food was delicious and the family were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely return to the villa and have in fact already discussed our return. The one criticism we had was it would have been nice to have been given some basics like soap washing powder, tea and coffee and also things like the kettle could have been of better quality. However it has not changed our discussion in our rating because the villa was just what we wanted.

My day started with a 20 minute dip in the Jacuzzi whilst soaking in the stunning scenery, followed by breakfast on one of the sun terraces, followed by 100 lengths of the pool (no chlorine, no sore eyes!) We were then ready to explore the local villages which were only a few kilometers away. The Villa was immaculate and luxurious, we would (and have) recommend it to our friends. We spent a lot of time at the Villa, the Pool and the table tennis table got well used ! I would certainly book this Villa again.
