Paleochora in Crete

Hotels and apartments

 

Situted on the south western coast of Crete, the former fishing village of Paleochora, sits on a small peninsula jutting into the vast blue expanses of sea and behind is surrounded by a lush green landscape with oleanders and olive trees.

Paleochora

The mountains of Sfakia form a dramatic rugged backdrop and to the west there is a wonderful sandy beach, which is several kilometers long. The small seaside town has a large selection of tavernas, shops and cafes, and on a summer’s evening the bustling streets become a much loved strolling and meeting point.

The area is ideal for beach lovers, or for walkers eager to explore the south west coast and the surrounding mountains. From Paleochora, boats ply back and forth along the coast, stopping at a number of villages on the way to Chora Sfakion.

It is also possible to take boat trips to see Dolphins as well as the remote island of Gavdos, which is the most southerly point of Europe.

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.
