Chania (or Hania) in Crete

Hotels and apartments

Up until 1972, Chania was the capital of Crete. Today, it is the second largest town in Crete, with its own airport serving Western Crete. Many believe Chania to be one of the most impressive towns in the whole of Greece. Chania is really two towns. The old walled town with its mediaeval quarters and the new town with its magnificent harbour, consists of houses Chania crete, hotelsand churches from both the Venetian and Turkish periods. Walking through the maze of narrow streets is like a trip through the history of Crete. Here around the crescent shaped harbour you will find many excellent restaurants, bars and small shops, as well as the famous cruciform shaped market, with its fascinating array of provisions. The unique melting pot of history which forms this town is part of its enduring charm. Scattered north and west from Chania, lie countless beautiful beaches along with many small villages and pretty coves. Here is the perfect holiday town and area that caters for most tastes. There are water sports, ideal sunbathing spots and many worthwhile excursions through the western part of the island. Of further interest is the Akrotiri peninsula with its ancient atmospheric monasteries. The peninsula divides the Bay of Souda, with its beautiful natural harbour, and the Bay of Chania. The towns of Sougia, Chora Sfakion, and Paleochora in the South, as well as Kissamos and Phalassarna in the West, are all easily reached by bus. The region around Chania is also the best base from which to take the walk through the glorious wild natural beauty of the famous 18km Samaria Gorge. In the wonderful region in and around Chania we have carefull chosen a selection of accommodation, in a wide choice of villages such as Kalathas, Stavros, Kalamaki, Stalos, Platanias, Gerani, Kolimabari, Maleme and Tavronitis, which are all between 5 and 25 km distance from the town of Chania

Tip of the day

The village of Georgioupolis with it’s particulary beautiful setting between sea and mountain, is situated between the towns of Rethymno, a 30 minute journey by car and Chania which is a 45 minute drive away. This charming village with its long stretch of sandy beach and river running into the sea, was until recent times a sleepy little fishing village in an out of the way place.Over the past 20 years it has slowly grown into a very popular little holiday resort, with a wide range of tavernas, shops, cafes, boutiques and other tourist amenities. The beautiful countryside surrounding the village is ideal for those keen on walking, while the splendid sandy shore and relaxed sea side atmosphere make it ideal for beach lovers.
There is and excellent bus service in all directions and thus it is possible to go quite far afield, for example to Heraklion (90 min journey) or the south coast perhaps to visit Phaistos or Matala. An outing to Georgioupolis is also worthwhile. Closer to home there are interesting visits to be made to the old quarters of Chania and Rethymno.
