Take a stroll, sit on a bench and enjoy the view of the colourful houses and restaurant and listen to the sound of the waves.

the old Venetian harbour is what makes Chania unique, and the scenery is unique in Crete and in Greece, immediately recognizable. Wonderful atmosphere, full of restaurants, bars and shops, obviously full of people and very busy at the hight of the tourist season.

The Venetian old harbour is an ideal location to stay whilst visiting beautiful Chania. It’s not too far from everything & will be quiet as it’s away from the restaurants & bars
