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.

Nice Apartment in Quiet Area

5 of 5
We'd enjoyed our holiday at "Elea" apartment. Very convenient location near beach, shops, restaurants, public transport. George and his wife were very helpful, plus give us a good advise for our day trip to Samaria Gorge. Had some dinner at the little restaurant on site, food was tasty and reasonably priced. Overall were very happy with everything on site and hopefully will be back next year

Fabulous apartment and wonderful host

5 of 5
The apartment is spacious and beautifully decorated, it does look just like the pictures. Good quality linen and towels and plenty of them. Fully equipped kitchen if you want to self cater. Situated in a quiet block, next to the road but we werent bothered by traffic noise. 2 minutes walk to lovely Kalamaki beach bar with free sunbeds, lovely sandy beach and sheltered , shallow bay for swimming. Walking distance to restaurants and supermarkets with a bus stop close by for a short ride into Chania town. Maria is a wonderful host. There was a lovely home cooked dinner, fresh fruit and cretan goodies for us on our arrival. Taxi transfers arranged for us. Lots of info about places to visit and manuals for all the appliances.Just made our holiday stress free. For solo travellers you will feel safe here. Would recommend for a relaxing holiday. Thank you Maria.
