Map

  The county of Chania, the most western part of Crete, is characterized by its unique beauty. With its endless sandy beaches, gorges, caves, endemic plants and animals, vast olive and orange groves and a combination of wild landscapes and sea, it excites even the most hard-to-please visitors.
  In the mountainous inner parts, it hosts villages that have been forgotten by time, scattered churches and monasteries, towers and castles.
  The whole area is a particularly interesting archaeological site and simultaneously a paradise for wandering, mountain climbing and sports. The excavations, both in the town of Hania and in the country, have proven the existence of residences from prehistoric times to today.
  The mild Mediterranean climate with temperatures in winter around 12°C and in summer around 30°C, the special Cretan diet, the acquaintance with customs that elsewhere tend to become forgotten and the whole-hearted hospitality of the islanders, win over the visitor to this blessed place.
