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.

Crete has a mild and temperate climate with hot, dry summers that are kept cool by the northern winds. Chania enjoys summer temperatures of around 26°C with sunshine almost every day, and the sea remains at a comfortable 24-25°C. Winters in Chania are mild. Temperatures rarely go below 10°C. December and January tend to be wet.

We will be back!!

5 of 5
Had an fantastic mini break here. The Vila was clean and spacious with every possible thing you could want or need supplied. The heated pool was perfect for our kids. The temperature was ideally for swimming during the whole day..Our kids loved it, we was trying very hard to leave the place. A welcome pack which included local products waited for us. We enjoyed every single thing. The olive oil, the wine, the eggs from Manos hens, the fruits and the homey were the best!! Manolis was very friendly and helpful with lots of helpful hints and tips on where to go and what to see. Our only problem was not having enough time to explore the region and to relax near the pool.One week is not enough for sure, we will defenetelly come back! Thank you for everything!!!

enchanting view and peace and quiet

5 of 5
I loved this house. the view is amazing as the house is on the top of a hill and you can see down to the church dome amongst the trees and beyond to the city lights and horizon. the House was really comfortable and spacious. The neighbours were friendly and quiet which is important to me as I'm noise-sensitive! The local supermarket was the best one I've been to in Chania as they had home-produced cheese and olive oil, etc. The lady who looks after the property is very helpful and kind without being intrusive. But if I'd wanted some company she would have included me in her family's Easter celebrations. In fact she gave me some bread she'd baked. Three terraces for different times of the day. So it was perfect.
