I Just landed at chania airport. where do i absolutely have to go first?

Congratulations! You just cleared the first step to your next amazing holiday: you arrived in Crete, and Chania no less. So, where should your path lead you to next?
Definitely head towards the Old Venetian Harbour – a beautiful relic port preserved from the 14th century! Lose yourself to the magical alleys, replenish your energy at the local cafés and treat yourself to local delicacies such as kalitsounia (cheese pies) and loukoumades…

Are you planning to visit Chania next summer? you nEED to visit these iconic landmarks

Chania is one of the most famous summer destinations in Greece and for good reason! From the picturesque local architecture and the Fragkokastello Fortress to the Venetian Lighthouse, a whole Greco-Italian aesthetic is waiting for you to explore it and travel back in time.
We believe that wanderlust is a travel must, an inherent part of visiting Chania. From the complex green, rocky and blue natural beauty, to the colourful alleys of the chora (a.k.a the central town), allow yourself to discover Cretan beauty to its fullest! Make sure to pack your most comfortable sneakers and airy sports outfits to explore the Samaria Gorge, one of the largest gorges in Europe, and a popular hiking route of 17km, full of unforgettable scenery.

Luxury & Tradition: An unorthodox Combination or an Effortless union?

What separates luxury from traditional? Should these two concepts be separated at all? We say, the answer lies within you…But leaving diplomatic answers aside, we think luxury and tradition can be complementary. Even more so in a destination like Chania!

Let us paint a picture for you: You wake up in your villa, you have breakfast with a fantastic view. Then you go to town, pick up a nice iced coffee (or any beverage of your choice, we don’t judge) and head to the beach. In the afternoon, you take a nice stroll in the Venetian alleys, you pass by the churches and the public squares full of energy, until you finally reach your villa again. You relax, get ready to head to a nice restaurant (scroll a little further for suggestions), and then go for a drink. And voila! You just combined the traditional Cretan ambience of Chania with the leisure and comfort of your luxury villa! Effortless…
