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.

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.

Amazing Everything

5 of 5
The location of this villa is outstanding, right on the sea front with an amazing roof top infinity pool that makes the most of the open sea view behind it. Everyone involved in this villa thought about every little detail to make guests holidays the best they can be. It's the little details that can make all the difference and they had everything covered. The pool was heated to 25c, there was wifi on every floor, a smart tv, plenty of towels, regular maid cleaning, a welcome basket, a portable Bluetooth speaker to take anywhere in the villa, 2 bikes to ride around the island, electric shutters on every window for security and light blocking, a safe, plenty of hot water for everyone to have a shower and more and more. There was about 30 drawers under the TV, that contained anything extra you might need. Alexandra met us on the first day to check we were settled in OK and helped us with her knowledge of the area. Amazing hosts and villa, thank you for our fantastic holiday. Would HIGHLY recommend.

Haris, the owner is very charming and helpful. The villa is beautiful with splendid views from every window. The garden is beautifully kept. The high points were the beach at Falsarna, the botanical gardens at Fourne and the many friendly local tavernas. Highly recommended!
