Crete Calling - Chania Holiday Rentals

On the northern coast of Crete is the idyllic holiday resort of Chania, pronounced “Hania”. Known for its Venetian harbour, it is also recognized for wine tasting and holidays where historical interests are indulged. From Chania holiday homes there are wonderful opportunities for sightseeing and enjoying the character and atmosphere of this interesting resort. This includes architecture of the Venetian, Byzantine, Turkish and Minoan eras as well as modern.

A sightseeing experience in Chania

A visit to the Venetian harbour is something to look forward to. Situated in the older part of the town it, has a character of its own. Within this region and within easy reach of the Chania holiday villas are a variety of old churches and museums. To break your sightseeing tour, there are various quaint cafes and restaurants on the seafront. The harbour is picturesque and makes a brilliant backdrop to the fishing vessels entering and leaving port. Not to be missed is the Naval Museum, where you can gain some background knowledge of the culture that has helped develop Chania and Crete. Challenging for attention are the archeological and Byzantine museums, as well as the Crete and Chania historical archives.

A variety of interests and entertainment

As with most resorts by the sea, time in the water and on the beaches is an integral part of your holiday. The primary beach is Chania, which is a comfortable distance from most Chania holiday accommodation. However, you are at the most an easy ten kilometres distance from the furthest of six large and sandy beaches in the area. In the evening, there is a wide and varied choice of bars, pubs and restaurants, which are a source of entertainment for everyone. This is in direct comparison to the archaeological remains of Kydonia, which have been partially excavated. If you are seeking wonderful scenery, the magnificent Samaria Gorge close to the town will get you close to nature with walks along shaded paths.

Other places to see when in Chania

The old and characteristic fishing village of Almirda lies at the end of Souda Bay. It has retained its Cretan identity and charm, and is the ideal place from which to begin exploring the Chania Caves. Easily reached from Chania holiday rentals, you can stop at small cafes and restaurants on the way or in Almirda to enjoy some of the local foods and drinks.

The villa is even better than the pictures. Amazing Pool side and breathtaking views. Supermarket 10 minutes away restaurants and tavernas all over. We were 4 couples with 3 children and it was spacious and perfect to spend time in family. You can't go wrong if looking to spend a great time with family or friends. Highly recommended we will be back for sure

Couldn't ask for a better place to spend our Honeymoon!

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Joy! The Villa itself is jaw dropping. The grounds are so well kept and the owner is the sweetest. All the staff were great and our Chef was out of this world. The food he prepared was unbelievable and his knowledge for the Island's history as well as the food was very impressive. This is something we will never forget. Loved every moment! Thanks Villa Joy!
