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.

great location and nice host

5 of 5
Panos and his wife welcomed us late in the evening very friendly. He explained everything and arranged an extra bed for our baby. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable, equipped with all things we needed. The terrace is fantastic; it is located on the roof upstairs - we didn't expect this with our 2 kids, but no real problem. Surrounding is nice and friendly, too. Panos, many thanks again and good luck for the olive harvest. Hopefully we see you again next year!
